WASHINGTON — Now that the bulk of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report is public, what happens next?
Mueller ran his investigation largely as a fact-finding mission focused on two subjects: conspiracy between Russia and the Trump campaign, and possible obstruction-of-justice by President Trump. While Mueller did not uncover conclusive proof of a Trump-Russia criminal conspiracy, he did find ample evidence to suggest Trump tried to obstruct justice by interfering with or trying to shut down the Russia investigation.
The obstruction volume of Mueller’s report ends with a rhetorical baton pass to Congress: We dug up all these facts. It’s your constitutional duty to decide what happens next.
