Report: Low-Paid Temp Workers, Recent College Grads Tested Boeing 737 Max Software

  • Mueller Report: No Collusion

    On Sunday, AG William Barr delivered his summary of the special counsel Robert Mueller's main findings in the Russia investigation. Business Insider reports that Mueller was tasked with investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 US election. Mueller looked into whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow to tilt the race in his favor. Mueller also investigated whether Trump sought to obstruct justice when he learned of the investigation's existence. According to Barr's summary, Mueller "determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgement." Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded that Trump did not commit an obstruction-of-justice crime. Mueller also found that neither Trump, nor anyone on his campaign, "conspired or coordinated with Russia" during the election. Mueller also "states that 'while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.'"
