    Though the US special counsel himself has been silent about the progress of the investigation, his team hinted they were still working on key issues. The exact date of the document's release has not been announced, but it's reported to be unveiled soon.

    The US House of Representatives on Thursday voted overwhelmingly to adopt a non-binding resolution that calls for the public release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's final report on the Russia investigation.

    The House voted 420-0 in favour of the resolution, which expresses "the sense of Congress that the report of Special Counsel Mueller should be made available to the public and to Congress."

    The special counsel's office has been busy with the probe since May 2017, investigating claims about the Trump's campaign colluding with Russia and unlawfully attempting to obstruct the inquiry.

    Moscow, in turn, has repeatedly denied interfering in the election, saying the allegations were made up as an excuse for the defeat of Trump's campaign opponent as well as to deflect public attention from actual instances of electoral fraud and corruption.

    The Republican president himself has regularly denied the collusion and called the Mueller's probe a "witch hunt."
