Robert Mueller not recommending any more indictments in Russia probe

WASHINGTON— Special counsel Robert Mueller is not recommending any further indictments in the Russia investigation.

That's according to a Justice Department official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the person wasn't authorized to speak publicly about the confidential recommendation.

Mueller notified Attorney General William Barr on Friday that he had concluded his probe of Russian election interference and any possible coordination with Donald Trump's campaign.

Mueller's report, still confidential, sets the stage for big public fights to come. The next steps are up to Trump's attorney general, to Congress and, in all likelihood, federal courts.

It's not clear how much of the report will become public or provided to Congress. Barr has said he will write his own report summarizing Mueller's findings.

The nearly two-year probe has shadowed Trump's presidency and resulted in felony charges against 34 people including six people who served on Trump's campaign.

President Trump's lawyers say they are "pleased" that special counsel Robert Mueller has delivered his report on the Russia investigation.

Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow issued their joint statement within minutes of Attorney General William Barr's letter to key members of Congress confirming the delivery and suggesting he could update lawmakers as soon as this weekend.

They say: "We're pleased that the Office of Special Counsel has delivered its report to the Attorney General pursuant to the regulations. Attorney General Barr will determine the appropriate next steps."
