The Trump Campaign is taking a victory lap after the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's [[ MULL-er's ]] report. A campaign says "President Trump has been fully and completely exonerated yet again." Adding that an investigation should be opened against those who "instigated this sham investigation into President Trump." Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign concluded the Trump campaign did not collude with the Russians.       The final report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller [[ MULL-er ]] cites numerous attempts by President Trump to influence the Russia investigation. The report says the efforts were largely unsuccessful, mainly because people around the President declined to carry out orders. One of Trump's demands was to remove Mueller.        Former Vice President Joe Biden is at a rally in support of striking Stop & Shop workers in Southern New England. He will speak outside a store in Boston. Today is day eight of the walkout by 31-thousand employees at more than 240 stores in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.        The National Enquirer is being sold for 100-million-dollars to the CEO of Hudson News.
