WASHINGTON (AP) -  President Donald Trump is touting the Justice Department's summary of special counsel Robert Mueller findings, saying "it was a shame" the nation had to go through the investigation.
Trump claims the report found "there was no collusion with Russia, there was no obstruction." In fact, Mueller did not make a determination on whether Trump committed obstruction of justice in the Russia probe. Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein determined that evidence gathered by Mueller was insufficient.
The summary does say Mueller did not find that the Trump campaign or its associates "conspired or coordinated" with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 election.
Trump is also lashing out at the investigation, claiming without evidence that it was "an illegal takedown that failed."
Trump spoke to reporters before boarding Air Force One to return to Washington from a weekend at his private club in Florida.
