department releasing a summary of special counsel robert mueller's investigation into russian interference in the 2016 election. natalie brand is live this evening and washington, d.c. with a breakdown of the report and the presidents reaction.>> reporter: attorney general william barr spent the weekend reviewing the special counsel's report before sending a summary to congress. tonight, we have a glimpse into the findings. attorney general william barr released a letter summarizing the findings of robert mueller's investigation. the four-page letter reads, the special counsel's investigation did not find that the trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 united states presidential election. is letter also said that robert mueller looked into possible obstruction of justice charges against president trump. the direct quote reads, while the report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him. the special counsel deferred to
the justice department to make that determination. william barr says he and the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein decided that the evidence is not sufficient to establish the president obstructed justice. >> it was a complete and total exoneration. it is a shame that our country had to go through this. >> reporter: even before the letter was made public, democrats were calling for the entire robert mueller report to be released. >> if we have to, yes, we will issue subpoenas to get the information. >> reporter: robert mueller's team brought charges against 34 individuals, including warmer trump campaign chair paul manafort, and national security adviser michael flynn. as the president supporters noted, none of the former campaign associates were accused of colluding with the kremlin to influence the election. >> other things that happened, people who have done things wrong, they will be held accountable, that's how it works in this great country. on the central issue, no
evidence whatsoever. >> reporter: he says he will release as much of the report as possible under the law. again, democratic lawmakers made clear that they want to see the entire robert mueller report, and underlying documents. they want to see all documents. they plan to call attorney general william barr to testify before his committee in the near future. on capitol hill, natalie brand, backed you. what does congress do now? >> reporter: i believe in a house, we will see up protracted legal fight over getting the report in full, as well as the underlying documents. we could definitely see a political back and forth, and something that ends up in the courts between the department of justice, and house democrats, who have emphasized that they want to see much more than was released tonight. that could also include subpoenas to william barr, and
documents related to the report. >> it seems like it has only just begun. natalie brand and washington, d.c., thank you. in the meantime, senator kamala harris had this to say, the mueller report needs to be made public. the information should be handed over to congress. this is what transparency looks like. a short letter from the handpick attorney general is not sufficient. >> nancy pelosi and senator chuck schumer says the fact that special counsel robert mueller's report does not exonerate the president on a charge as serious as obstruction of justice demonstrates how urgent it is that the full report and underlying documentation be made public without any further delay. detergent -- bernie sanders was revving of supporters at an oakland rally. melissa kane was with the crowd at fort mason.
