In its 448-page report, special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's team wrote that while its investigation established that the Trump campaign "expected it would benefit electorally from" information stolen in Russia-backed efforts, it "did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities".

"I didn't know it, but I think it's a great thing that he did it", he said.

"They want to look at how the whole hoax got started", Trump said Tuesday as he departed the White House for an event in Louisiana.

Attorney General William Barr has appointed a USA attorney to examine the origins of the Russian Federation investigation and determine if intelligence collection involving the Trump campaign was "lawful and appropriate", a person familiar with the issue told The Associated Press on Monday.

President Trump nominated Durham for his current post past year and the Senate unanimously confirmed him. "He's totally above politics", said Starr, noting that the Obama administration gave Durham some key assignments, including an investigation of Central Intelligence Agency detainees.

"I think spying did occur", he said during his congressional testimony.

Others feel as though Pogba has failed to live up to his superstar billing and has often lacked work ethic in games. Evra added on the South American forward: "Some players only come for the money, I am not afraid to say that".

The president and his supporters have long contended that the Obama administration used the intelligence community to illegally spy on the Trump campaign in 2016.

This comes after the Trump Justice Department appointed a career Department of Justice lawyer - John Durham - to assist Barr into looking into those allegations.

Yoo emphasized that "you wouldn't go with a U.S. Attorney like Durham, someone of his stature, unless the attorney general thinks actually something criminal might have happened, that someone might have violated the law, that there might have been malfeasance, that people at the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Justice Department were acting out of partisan motives, not just out of incompetence or stupidity or they were duped by the Russians or Steele or the English or by the Clinton campaign".

Barr has signaled concern about the DOJ and FBI's biased surveillance of Trump associates.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr speaks during a farewell ceremony for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, U.S., May 9, 2019. "It's a waste of his talent", Blumenthal said.
