Attorney General William Barr's four-page summary of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation drew immediate praise from top Republicans, who declared vindication for President Trump after Mueller found no campaign conspiracy or coordination with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Jerrold Nadler was quick to point out that Barr’s letter was not the end of the inquiry, noting that Barr wrote in his summary that "while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him." In a tweet, Nadler added that his panel “will be calling Attorney General Barr in to testify” in the near future.
