Mueller admitted that there was no collusion between Trump and Russia

Summary of Disinformation

In his 24 July testimony before US Congress, Special Counsel Robert Mueller repeatedly admitted that there was no collusion between Trump and Russia.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

Robert Mueller makes clear in his report that "collusion" is not a legal concept under US federal law, and that gathering evidence thereof would have fallen outside the scope of the special counsel investigation (p. 2). The report does, in fact, identify "numerous links between individuals with ties to the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump campaign" (p. 9).

These links, however, were judged as insufficiently deliberate on the part of Trump campaign staffers to sustain charges of conspiracy (special counsel report, p. 65), the term which Mueller used in his testimony to recount the conclusions of his report.
