WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump reacted swiftly to a statement by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on his Russia investigation on Wednesday, saying nothing had changed and “the case is closed!”
“There was insufficient evidence and therefore, in our Country, a person is innocent,” Trump wrote in a Twitter post. “The case is closed!”
Mueller, however, did not proclaim Trump’s innocence. “If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so,” Mueller said.
