Trump claims Mueller victory
The US President Donald Trump has declared victory after the appearance of the Special Counsel Robert Mueller before Congress did little to give momentum to Democratic hopes of impeachment.
Mr Mueller, who investigated alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, said Russia had interfered on Mr Trump's behalf, but he'd not been able to establish collusion in a crime.
He emphasised that he did not exonerate Mr Trump of obstruction of justice, as the president has long claimed.
But Mr Trump said it's been a great day for him and his Republican Party.
