Special counsel Robert Mueller will not be issuing any further indictments after concluding his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, the Associated Press (AP) reports.

According to the AP, Mueller submitted the report to Attorney General William Barr on March 22; while the report has not been made public yet, a Department of Justice official told the AP that Mueller won’t be issuing any more indictments.

In a letter to leaders of the judiciary committee in the House and the Senate, Barr said, “I am reviewing the report and anticipate that I may be in a position to advise you of the Special Counsel’s principal conclusions as soon as this weekend.”

Mueller was appointed in May 2017; the investigation has resulted in dozens of indictments.
