Hours ahead of the Justice Department’s release of a redacted version of Robert Mueller’s report, Attorney General William Barr said at a news conference that “the Special Counsel found no evidence that any Americans – including anyone associated with the Trump campaign – conspired or coordinated with the Russian government or the [Internet Research Agency]” to use disinformation to sow social discord among American voters.
