Special Counsel Mueller Says He's Resigning at Conclusion of Russia Probe

Special counsel Robert Mueller spoke out about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election for the first time Wednesday to say that he will not provide more information than what's in the report his office released. Mueller's roughly 10-minute remarks at an extraordinary news conference in Washington were his first public statements since he was appointed two years ago. He said that charging President Donald Trump with a crime was "not an option" because of Justice Department guidelines. That reiterated what his office said in his report, and Mueller made clear Wednesday that what he says publicly will not go beyond what was in the report.
