Mueller investigation report doesn’t recommend any further indictments, source says

Barr meanwhile wrote to Congress that he may be able to communicate Mueller's "principal conclusions" as early as this weekend.

"The next steps are up to Attorney General Barr, and we look forward to the process taking its course", a White House statement read. "The White House has not received or been briefed on the Special Counsel's report". The long-awaited development comes nearly two years after Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to investigate "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump" and "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation". House Intelligence Committee Chairman Schiff has already announced he will subpoena the Mueller report, and possibly Mueller himself, if relevant information is excluded from the report or otherwise kept from Congress.

Rosenstein appointed the special counsel after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who was leading an investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. I'm also not rooting for Mr. Mueller to "clear" the president. While he admits to believing that Trump should not be in office, Comey insists that he is "not rooting" for any particular outcome in the report - whether it finds the president to be a "criminal" or exonerates him.

The comprehensive report - still confidential for now - marks the end of Mueller's probe but sets the stage for big public fights to come. According to the regulations, Barr "may determine that public release of these reports would be in the public interest, to the extent that release would comply with applicable legal restrictions". He has embraced an expansive view of presidential powers but also is considered a defender of the rule of law. Comey's firing led the Justice Department's No. 2 official, Rod Rosenstein, to appoint Mueller to take over the probe. Trump Jr. was even reported to have told close associates at one point that he expected to be indicted. Longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone was charged in January with obstruction, false statements and witness tampering.

Iconic shooter game is coming soon
Call of Duty: Mobile has been announced for previously unannounced regions, including North America, South America, and Europe. Players can not pre-register for the iOS version yet, but the website says the game is coming soon to the App Store.

Trump bemoaned that the special counsel was "best friend" to Comey, who succeeded Mueller as Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

Right now, we don't know what's in the report and what Mueller found, if anything. The report is said to be "comprehensive".

The transmission of the report to Barr concludes an investigation that has resulted in the indictments of 34 people, infuriated the president and thrown the administration into turmoil.

But Comey wrote: "I have no idea whether the special counsel will conclude that Mr Trump knowingly conspired with the Russians in connection with the 2016 election or that he obstructed justice with the required corrupt intent". Federal prosecutors, also in NY, have been investigating foreign contributions made to the president's inaugural committee.
