- Robert S. Mueller, The Mueller Report: The Final Report of the Special Counsel into Donald Trump, Russia, and Collusion (2019APR22)

It's a lot of humany details -- stuff I'm not good with. But, anyway...

"if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment."

Seems for firing the FBI director, trying to get Sessions to unrecuse himself, pressuring people to tow the party line and not flip toward accusations against the President, suggesting to underlings they make the investigation go away, and dangling pardon possibilities, Mueller would have found guilt were it not for presidential immunity.
