WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Sunday the Department of Justice’s findings on the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election were a “total and complete exoneration of the President of the United States.”

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who spent nearly two years investigating allegations that Russia meddled in the presidential election to help Donald Trump win, found no evidence that any member of Trump’s election campaign conspired with Russia during the election.
