The past couple years have certainly been politically tumultuous. Much of the political turmoil has been a direct result of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

The investigation is now done, and the report is in. Read on to get some highlights and to see the full 448-page report.

Mueller Highlights

If you simply don't have the time to read through the full report, several reputable news media agencies have been working hard to digest the most important parts.

In summary, the NYT explains that the report was unable to conclude that President Trump, nor anyone connected to his campaign, engaged in conduct that was criminal. Although the report seems to explain that both Russia and the Trump campaign benefited from the other's actions, it significantly distinguished that there was no evidence of an agreement between the groups to act.

One of the more fascinating bits that the report reveals is that President Trump believed his presidency was over after Mueller's appointment. The report actually quotes President Trump telling his advisors that it was "the end of his presidency."

It's Mueller Time

The report itself is rather unwieldy, but if you're interested in reading what wasn't redacted out (which is much less than you might expect), you can check it out below. Notably, if you skip ahead to Appendix C (page 417), you can read the questions posed to President Trump, as well as his written responses.
