Trump Russia investigation: Attorney General Barr backs Trump
The US Attorney General has defended President Donald Trump over allegations of obstruction of justice, while reiterating that "no collusion" was found between his team and Russia, BBC reports.
William Barr held a news conference on Thursday, shortly before a long-awaited report into the matter was released.
He also revealed that investigators had examined 10 episodes of possible obstruction of justice by Mr Trump.
Barr has said he was "committed to ensuring the greatest degree possible of transparency" with its release, and described redactions to the public report as "limited".
Minutes after Mr Barr's news conference ended, Mr Trump posted a meme saying it was "game over" for the "haters and the radical left democrats".
It followed a flurry of tweets he posted on Thursday morning in which he described the investigation as the "greatest political hoax of all time" and "presidential harassment".
