Mueller laid out ten episodes in which President Trump directed others to influence or curtail the Russian Federation investigation after the special counsel's appointment in May 2017. These members of Congress, as well as one staffer for each member, could review a less redacted version of the report in a reading room, but could not take the report out of that room or discuss it with other members of Congress. Now, how does that - your other question, how does that bear on obstruction of justice? "The business of government can move on".

"I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President", Romney posted.

The poll, conducted Thursday afternoon to Friday morning, was the first to measure America's response after the Justice Department released special counsel Robert Mueller's 448-page report, which detailed a number of times that the president may have interfered with the investigation.

In his report, Mueller said his investigation did not establish that the Trump campaign had coordinated with Russians.

"Portman characterized some of the actions of the president and those around the president as inappropriate but not criminal".

Former Brazilian President Luiz Ignacio Lula da Silva is serving a 12-year prison sentence for corruption and money laundering. He allegedly took bribes from Brazilian construction company Odebrecht for offering large-scale public works contracts.

Earlier in the day, Romney tweeted that it was good news that there was insufficient evidence to charge Trump with collusion or obstruction of justice. After the Mueller report, however, some are changing their minds about that.

Other Republicans have avoided observations on the details of the Mueller report and instead pointed out that no evidence was found to charge the president with a crime.

"Attorney General Barr has given unprecedented accommodations to Chairman Nadler, and it's unconscionable the chairman refuses receipt of information he's claimed for weeks Democrats are 'entitled to.' Who subpoenas a report and publicly refuses to read it in the same day?" a spokesperson for House Judiciary Republicans said in a statement.

The poll found that 50% of Americans agreed that "Trump or someone from his campaign worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election", and 58% agreed that the president "tried to stop investigations into Russian influence on his administration".
