The release of the report came nearly two years after Mueller was appointed by acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to investigate any connection between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.

In a press conference Thursday prior to the release, Barr responded to reports that he shared the investigation’s findings with the White House to determine if the president’s attorneys planned to exert executive privilege over any part of the report. A claim of executive privilege would keep parts of the 400-page report private.

Trump did not exert executive privilege, Barr said.
