"Nothing changes from the Mueller report", Trump said via Twitter in response to Mueller's remarks. "There was insufficient evidence and therefore, in our country, a person is innocent. The case is closed".
US Special Counsel Robert Mueller earlier in the day said the investigation into allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election did not absolve Trump of the crime of obstructing justice, adding that his office did not have the authority to file criminal charges against a sitting president.
Russia has repeatedly denied any claims of interference in the US political system, saying the allegations were made up to excuse the election loss of Trump's 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton, as well as deflect public attention from actual instances of election fraud and corruption.
