During his congressional testimony on Capitol Hill Wednesday, former special counsel Robert Mueller admitted that his team found no evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia during his investigation.

Under intense questioning from Republican Rep. Doug Collins, Mueller revealed that his team found “insufficient evidence of the president’s culpability” in Russian election interference.

Mueller had been called before Congress to answer question regarding his report on his 22-month-long Russia Probe.

Trump supporters responded positively to Doug Collins questioning.

Duirng questioning, Rep. Collins got Mueller to contradict his report by asking him whether "collusion" and "conspiracy" are the same thing.

Mueller testified that they weren’t the same, but Collins cited a part of the report that was contradictory.

Collins read Mueller’s own report to him:

“On page 180 of volume one of your report, you wrote, ‘As defined in legal dictionaries, collusion is largely synonymous with conspiracy as that crime is set forth in the general federal conspiracy statute, 18 U.S.C. 371; …'

"Are you sitting here today testifying something different than what your report states?”

Mueller struggled to explain the contradiction.

The former special counsel ultimately admitted that the interpretation in his report was the correct one — rather than the answer he had just given Congress.

In his opening statement, Mueller stated: “We did not address collusion, which is not a legal term.

"Rather, we focused on whether the evidence was sufficient to charge any member of the campaign with taking part in a criminal conspiracy, and it was not.”

That statement suggested that the report had not, in fact, concluded that Trump had colluded with Russia.
