After two years of investigation into the Russia election meddling, Special Counsel Robert Muller has submitted his report to Attorney General William Barr.
The White House said on Friday evening that it had been briefed.
The much-awaited report focused on the contentious Russia investigation that has cast a dark shadow over Donald Trump’s presidency, entangled Trump’s family and resulted in criminal charges against some of the president’s closest associates, Associated Press reports.

The report is still marked as “confidential” and will take a while for a glimpse of its content or the whole report to be made public. The report will mark a turning point into Donald Trump’s presidency as it will determine what actions the democrat-led congress will take against him as well as his possible re-election in 2020.
The Justice Department said Mueller delivered his final report to Attorney General William Barr and officially concluded his probe of Russian election interference and possible coordination with Trump associates. The report will now be reviewed by Barr, who has said he will write his own account communicating Mueller’s findings to Congress and the American public.
Barr said he could release his account to Congress as soon as this weekend.
With no details released at this point, it’s not known whether Mueller’s report answers the core questions of his investigation which sought to probe into any collusion between the Trump campaign and Kremlin which would have in any way, favored Trump during the 2016 presidential elections.
