Mueller's Report Does Not Recommend More Indictments

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's final report on the Russia investigation does not recommend any further indictments, according to several media reports.

A Justice Department official,who called Mueller's report "comprehensive" told the Associated Press that Mueller is finished pursuing indictments as part of his probe.

The official was not authorized to discuss the probe and asked for anonymity.

Mueller delivered his report to Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at some point on Friday. The White House was informed of the news at 4:45 p.m. ET, according to reports.

As of now, the contents of the report are a closely guarded secret among a select group of DOJ officials. Barr told lawmakers he could brief them on Mueller's findings as soon as this weekend.

The Mueller investigation produced roughly three dozen indictments, although the vast majority of them involved Russians or Russian companies. President Donald Trump has proclaimed his innocence since the start, calling it a "witch hunt" and said his campaign did not work with the Russians to win the election.

Trump has yet to comment on the conclusion of Mueller's probe. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said neither Trump nor anyone else at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has been briefed on Mueller's findings.
