The Super Prosecutor's investigation concluded that Donald Trump's electoral committee and some of his advisors did not conspire or coordinate with Russia in an effort to influence the 2016 general election.
It is the key passage in the four-page letter sent yesterday afternoon by Justice Minister William Barr to the leaders of the Chamber and Senate Justice Commissions. This is the main 22-month expected conclusion of the survey conducted by Robert Mueller. A clear result, without ambiguity: President Trump and his closest collaborators, the first-born Donald jr and his son-in-law Jared Kushner, the lobbyists Paul Manafort and Roger Stone, General Michael Flynn and all the others, have not plotted with Putin's emissaries to hinder Hillary Clinton's candidacy.
For Trump it is a verdict of fundamental importance. The president switched to political collection with a tweet, after two days of silence: There is no collusion, no obstruction. Complete and total acquittal. The same words spoken a little earlier by Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a spokeswoman for the White House.
Of course, the Democrats will be able to look for other ideas in the cards, if and when they are published in full. Of course, there remain heavy suspicions about the Trump Organization's affairs, the president's personal finances, checks to pay the silence of porn stars and models, and more. But the black cloud, as Trump himself had defined it, the infamous accusation of having made an indecent pact with the enemy to win the elections, is wiped out after a long and meticulous investigation by one of the most respected investigators in the country . With this premise also the second charge, obstruction of justice, fades away.
