Special counsel Robert Mueller is not recommending any further indictments in the Russia investigation.
That’s according to a Justice Department official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the person wasn’t authorized to speak publicly about the confidential recommendation.
Mueller notified Attorney General William Barr on Friday that he had concluded his probe of Russian election interference and any possible co-ordination with Donald Trump‘s campaign.

Barr said the Justice Department did not block Mueller from taking any action during his investigation.
He is required to disclose to Congress any instance in which he or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein decided an action Mueller proposed should not be pursued.
Barr said in a letter to members of Congress on Friday that “there were no such instances during the Special Counsel’s investigation.”
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham expects that he and the panel’s top Democrat, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, will be briefed “in the coming days” about special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
The South Carolina Republican said he was notified by the Justice Department that Mueller’s report has been turned over and that Barr “will pursue as much transparency as possible.”
Graham said he expects to be “more thoroughly” briefed. He said he believed it was important for Mueller to do his job “without interference, and that has been accomplished.”
