Trump news – live: President to formally recognize Israeli control over the Golan Heights today, while Mueller's report intensifies


Donald Trump held a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to sign a proclamation that formally recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights while the consequences of the Mueller report continue.

Attorney General William Barr, a Trump ally chosen by the president, came to the conclusion that Trump had not colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election after reading the report of FBI special adviser Robert Mueller, presented later the conclusion of a 22-month investigation into the prosecution.

In a four-page letter to Congress, Barr quoted Mr. Mueller in conceding: "While this report does not conclude that the president has committed a crime, he does not exonerate him."

"A number of actions" carried out by Trump could raise obstacles to the concerns of justice, thought Mr. Mueller, but Barr and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, decided that these actions did not reveal "corrupt intentions".

A triumphant Trump was ready to greet the verdict as a "complete and total exemption", repeating his long attack on the "witch hunt" as "an illegal takedown that failed" – to the delight of Trump's loyalists – while the Democrats called for the full version of the Mueller report.
