Robert Mueller resigned as special counsel on May 29 citing the end of his investigation as his reason for resigning.

Robert Mueller resigns

During a special news conference on May 29, Robert Mueller announced that he will be resigning as special counsel.

After submitting a 448-page report with his team on their findings to Attorney General William Barr on March 22, Mueller says his work is done.

“I’m speaking out today because our investigation is complete,” Barr said. “The attorney general has made the report on our investigation largely public. We are formally closing the special counsel’s office, and as well I’m resigning from the Department of Justice to return to private life.”

In his report, Mueller said there was not enough evidence to charge President Donald Trump or any of his staff for conspiring with Russia’s government to interfere with the last presidential election. Despite this, Mueller did list 10 instances in which Trump may have tried to interfere with his investigation.

Mueller’s resignation leaves the decision up to Congress to decide whether or not to take action against the president for those possible interferences.
