Attorney General William Barr's summary of the Mueller report states that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government during the 2016 election. Democrats are now pushing for the full report to be released.

Attorney General William Barr sent a letter to Congress on Sunday briefing lawmakers on top-line findings from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation — including that Mueller did not find conspiracy or coordination between Trump’s campaign and Russia during the 2016 election. Mueller notified Barr on Friday that he had wrapped up his two-year investigation, which investigated the president and others in his orbit and resulted in dozens of indictments.

Here’s the full text of Barr’s letter to Congress:

After the letter was released, Trump said it amounted to a “complete and total exoneration.” But Rep. Jerry Nadler, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, disagreed: Nadler wrote on Twitter that “Special Counsel Mueller clearly and explicitly is not exonerating the President.”

Nadler called on Barr to testify before his committee.
