President Donald Trump has not been exonerated with regards to the Russia investigation, U.S. Attorney General William Bar is said to have concluded.

Barr reportedly made his remarks in a four-page summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. The summary was provided as a letter to Congress.

“The Special Counsel states that ‘while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him,'” one line the Mueller report is said to state, according to House Oversight Chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY).
