mueller could not explicitly say that because of DOJ policy. but he listed 10 cases in which they should be investigated by congress.

Mueller says messaging apps likely destroyed Trump-Russia evidence Tech challenges prevented special counsel from establishing full picture of what happened Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III concluded that there was insufficient evidence to bring criminal charges against individuals connected with President Donald Trump’s campaign for their ties to Russia, but he said the investigation faced numerous challenges, including technological ones, in establishing a full picture of what transpired in 2015 and 2016. “While the investigation identified numerous links between individuals with ties to the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump Campaign, the evidence was not sufficient to support criminal charges,” Mueller wrote in his report made public Thursday by the Justice Department. In investigating ties between the Trump campaign and Russian individuals, Mueller’s team ran into technological hurdles, in addition to old-fashioned ones such as unavailable foreign witnesses, according to the report. The special counsel’s office “learned that some of the individuals we interviewed or whose conduct we investigated — including some associated with the Trump Campaign deleted relevant communications or communicated during the relevant period using applications that feature encryption or that do not provide for long term retention of data or communication records,” the report said. “In such cases the Office was not able to corroborate witness statements through comparison to contemporaneous communications or fully question witnesses about statements that appeared inconsistent with the other known facts.” [...] Mueller says messaging apps likely destroyed Trump-Russia evidence On a number of important questions, Mueller never got answers [,,,] One of the themes in the partially redacted report from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's team is that, in a number of key areas, they were left unable to determine the facts surrounding a particular issue. In both of the report's volumes — the first addressing possible conspiracy between Russia and President Trump's 2016 campaign and the second addressing possible obstruction of justice — there are examples of how and where Mueller's investigators hit brick walls. The report itself provides an overview of the problems Mueller's team faced. (The report refers to Mueller's team as “the Office.") "Some individuals invoked their Fifth Amendment right against compelled self-incrimination and were not, in the Office's judgment, appropriate candidates for grants of immunity,” it states. Internal Justice Department guidelines blocked outreach to some witnesses. Other material was potentially subject to attorney-client privilege and screened before being given to Mueller's team. “Even when individuals testified or agreed to be interviewed,” the report continues, “they sometimes provided information that was false or incomplete. . . . And the Office faced practical limits on its ability to access relevant evidence as well — numerous witnesses and subjects lived abroad, and documents were held outside the United States.” [...] https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...t-questions-robert-mueller-never-got-answers/ i don't lie nor make shit up. you're welcome for learning the truth.
