Mueller says he did not exonerate Trump

Scotland Correspondent

In the US, Donald Trump wasted no time yesterday congratulating and praising Boris Johnson after his leadership victory, calling him “tough and smart”.

But the President had no time to tweet any more adulation at Mr Johnson today.

His Twitter feed was almost entirely dominated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Mr Mueller was answering questions about his report into alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 election.

When asked if he had exonerated the President, Mr Mueller answered ‘no’.
