Former US special counsel Robert Mueller has begun testifying before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees in Capitol Hill.

He is answering questions about his investigation into US President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia.

His appearance comes three months after releasing the final report on his two-year investigation into the 2016 presidential election.

Charging Trump was not an option, says Robert Mueller (BBC)

This afternoon.

Special counsel Robert Mueller considered 10 “episodes” involving actions by President Trump that might have been been connected to obstruction of justice, Attorney General Bill Barr said  — but the Justice Department concluded they do not amount to a breach of the law.

Barr said he is satisfied Trump had “non-corrupt motives” and that is what prompted him to decide not to prosecute the president.

Because investigators did not find a conspiracy between Trump’s campaign and the Russian interference in the 2016 election, that suggested Trump wasn’t trying to cover anything up, Barr said. And notwithstanding his frequent public outrage about the matter, Trump cooperated with Mueller’s inquiry, Barr said.
