He received a Pulitzer prize in 1992 for his play & # 39; The Kentucky Cycle & # 39; and his piece & # 39; All the Way & # 39; won a Tony prize in 2014.

Mueller wrote in his report that it was released in April that there was insufficient evidence to establish a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign in 2016 and Russia, but said that he could not exonerate Trump to obstruct justice.
