Bob Barr refused to say Trump broke no lawsPresident Donald Trump wanted Attorney General William Barr to say publicly that Trump broke no laws in his dealings with Ukraine, aides said Thursday, though Barr has never taken such a step during the ongoing impeachment investigation.

Instead, the Justice Department issued a statement in late September that "there was no campaign finance violation and that no further action was warranted" related to Trump's phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Trump had sought the kind of news conference that Barr conducted after the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election. But officials said he is satisfied with the way the Justice Department has handled the matter.
