WASHINGTON, D.C., USA — Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham says "the cloud hanging over President Trump has been removed" by special counsel Robert Mueller's report.
Graham, a close ally of Trump, also says it is "a bad day for those hoping the Mueller investigation would take President Trump down."
"Good day for the rule of law," Graham also wrote. "Great day for President Trump and his team. No collusion and no obstruction. The cloud hanging over President Trump has been removed by this report.
"Great job by Mr. Mueller and his team to thoroughly examine all things Russia," Graham wrote. "Now it is time to move on, govern the country, and get ready to combat Russia and other foreign actors ahead of 2020."
A summary of Mueller's findings released Sunday says Mueller did not find that the Trump campaign or its associates "conspired or coordinated" with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 election. It also says that Mueller did not exonerate President Donald Trump of obstruction of justice or find that he committed a crime.
Top House Judiciary Republican Doug Collins said "there is no constitutional crisis." House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said "it is time we move on for the good of the nation."
