But are Trump's legal troubles really over?

And in the run up to Trump's reelection bid, what direction for United States democracy going through what's arguably its biggest crisis of confidence in its institutions in half a century since the Watergate Scandal and the Vietnam War?

Trump, for almost two years, repeatedly bashed Mueller as a partisan hack and claimed he was conducting a "witch hunt" into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

McConnell, noting that it took almost two years for Mueller to conduct his investigation, said: "It's not unreasonable to give the special counsel and the Justice Department just a little time to complete their review in a professional and responsible manner".

"It is unconscionable that President Trump would try to spin the findings as if his conduct was acceptable", he added, after noting that according to Barr's summary, Mueller said his report did not "exonerate" the president on the accusations of obstruction of justice.

"His conclusions raise more questions than they answer", House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-New York, said Sunday.

But Mueller's probe found no evidence that the Trump campaign had conspired with Russian agents, Attorney General William Barr wrote in a letter to Congress on Sunday.

Asked Monday if she would acknowledge that it's incorrect for Trump to call the report "a total exoneration", Sanders told Guthrie "not at all".

They also raised questions about Barr's conclusion on obstruction of justice, citing a memo he sent to the Justice Department before his confirmation arguing it would be "fatally misconceived" that Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey could be the basis of an obstruction of justice inquiry. "That's up to the attorney general".

The chairmen reiterated the long-held Democratic conviction that Barr must make Mueller's work public, including the entirety of his final report and the underlying evidence that informed his conclusions and decision-making. "In the legal community, when you can't convict somebody on something, you're exonerating them ― legally exonerating them".

Mueller's long-awaited final report was delivered to the Justice Department on Friday after a almost two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible links between Russia and the Trump campaign. "Let it come out", he said. After a weekend spent in Florida golfing with Kid Rock and Lindsey Graham, Trump sounded thrilled when he spoke to reporters before boarding Air Force One: "After not looking at the other side, where a lot of bad things happened, a lot of terrible things happened, a lot of very bad things happened for our country, it was just announced there was no collusion with Russian Federation, the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard".
