On Politics: Complete Coverage of the Mueller Report

Here are four dramatic passages from the report and seven instances of potential obstruction of justice.

The White House that emerges from Mr. Mueller’s report is a hotbed of conflict infused by a culture of dishonesty, defined by a president who lies to the public and his own staff, then tries to get his aides to lie for him.

In one of the report’s more compelling revelations, investigators described how Mr. Trump ordered Michael T. Flynn, who would later serve briefly as his national security adviser, to find thousands of emails missing from Hillary Clinton’s computer server.

The report documents in great detail how a huge cast of Russian emissaries, some of whom were in direct contact with President Vladimir V. Putin, tried to forge inroads and influence the Trump team.

Before releasing the report, Attorney General William P. Barr presented the findings in the best possible light for the president. Mr. Trump, it seemed, had finally found the loyal attorney general he had longed for.
