    US Special Counsel Robert Mueller made his first public statement on the Russia investigation on 29 May, saying that his report on the Russia probe "speaks for itself".

    US Special Counsel Robert Mueller has announced his resignation from the Justice Department as the investigation into the alleged links between the Trump campaign and Russia was over. He has also reiterated his position on whether US President Donald Trump committed a crime amid accusations over "obstruction of justice."

    The Mueller report, released in April, concluded that President Donald Trump's campaign team did not collude with Russia, a claim which has repeatedly been denied by Moscow. However, the report also described 10 episodes regarding Trump’s actions that may constitute possible obstruction of justice.
