Robert Mueller goes to church next to the White House while Trump is absent in Florida

Specialist Robert Mueller attended church Sunday not far from the White House, which led to striking pictures shortly after sending his report to the Ministry of Justice.

Mueller and his wife Ann attended the services of St John's Episcopal Church, located opposite Lafayette Park, which is located in front of the White House.

Mueller has a regular participant in the church. His presence at the weekend came a week after President Trump attended church services with wife Melania Trump.

Mueller submitted his report to the lawyer William Barr on Friday and completed his 22-month study of Russian involvement in the 2016 election and possible collaboration between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Barr told the congress leader in a letter that he might be able to give them the special council's "main conclusions" as early as the weekend, but has not yet done so.

While Mueller was in church, Barr and Deputy Advocate-General Rod Rosenstein were discovered at the Justice Department. Trump is in Florida this weekend, and according to White House spokesman Hogan Gidley, the White House has not yet received or been informed of the Mueller report.

The investigation led to accusations of 34 people and three Russian companies, including six individuals near Trump as former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, but no one relates to collaboration with Russia. Mueller is not expected to recommend any new charges.

Top Democrats appeared on the Sunday Presidency which demanded full disclosure of Mueller's report, while some Republicans wanted to make transparency a step further, including the release of the Russian Communications Investigation and Related Documents Release Notice.
