Romney’s blistering criticism following the Mueller report’s release Thursday morning by the Department of Justice. The special counsel specified his team did not find any evidence of a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 election. . .
The special counsel’s findings detailed how Trump campaign members heard in advance about a WikiLeaks release of emails that Russian intelligence obtained from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta. The report states that while investigators found communications between Trump campaign aides and Russians, “the investigation did not establish that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
Further, Romney said he was “appalled” that Trump campaign members were open to receiving aid from the Russian government. “I am appalled that, among other things, fellow citizens working in a campaign for president welcomed help from Russia—including information that had been illegally obtained; that none of them acted to inform American law enforcement,” he said.
