Trump touts summary of Mueller findings, bashes investigators before leaving South Florida

What started off as another weekend of golf with political allies and celebrities for President Donald Trump in South Florida ended with him touting claims of victory over a nearly two-year probe into his relationship with Russia.

Trump interpreted a first-look into the findings, unveiled Sunday, as a “complete and total exoneration” from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into his alleged ties between with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

A summary of the findings, released Sunday from Attorney General William Barr, said the investigation found no evidence of the ties, but it did not exonerate the president from claims of obstruction of justice.

“This was an illegal takedown that failed and hopefully somebody is going to be looking at the other side,” Trump said before boarding Air Force One on Sunday afternoon, about an hour after the summary was released.
