Report: Mueller made no final decision on Trump case

United States Justice Department's special counsel Robert Mueller said he has not made any final decision regarding Donald Trump's involvement in the Russia probe, Fox News reported on Monday.

Mueller's comments come after reports that the US President is being investigated for potential obstruction of justice as part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's probe into his campaign team's contacts with Russia. However, the special counsel reportedly said no decisions have been made on whether Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey, who led the case, constitutes an obstruction of justice.

The president's personal lawyer Jay Sekulow said on Sunday that Trump has not received any notification that he is being investigated as part of the case, but added that he cannot claim this with complete certainty.
