The investigation conducted by former FBI director Robert Mueller began in 2017. Mueller's 400-page report into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election was delivered to Attorney General William Barr on March 22. 

Mueller's investigation led to six indictments of President Donald Trump's advisers and 26 Russian nationals -- some on charges of hacking. Twelve Russians were also tied to Democratic National Committee servers infected with malware during the 2016 election campaign. The compromised servers enabled the theft of thousands of emails that were subsequently published by WikiLeaks.
