    On Wednesday, now-retired special counsel Robert Mueller held an abruptly announced press conference to provide further clarification on the findings from his team’s two-year investigation into US President Donald Trump’s team’s alleged collusion with Russia in the 2016 presidential campaign.

    Mueller’s Reading Comprehension Review

    Those waiting with bated breath for Mueller to deliver game-changing remarks concerning his office's probe into Trump's 2016 campaign team had hopes dashed as the former FBI director merely summarized the readily available text.

    The Department of Justice announced Mueller's press conference an hour beforehand, giving mainstream outlets less time than usual for sensationalized speculation.

    During his presser, the former special counsel reiterated the responsibility he undertook by leading the probe.

    "After that investigation, if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so. We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime."

    In addition to his audible Sparknotes version of his four-page report, he also made sure to note that he does not question Attorney General William Barr's "good faith" in handling the results.
