electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities. *** Below we describe the evidentiary considerations underpinning statements about the results of our investigation and the Special Counsel’s charging decisions, and we then provide an overview of the two volumes of our report. The report describes actions and events that the Special Counsel’s Office found to be supported by the evidence collected in our investigation. In some instances, the report points out the absence of evidence or conﬂicts in the evidence about a particular fact or event. In other instances, when substantial, credible evidence enabledE the Ofﬁce to reach a conclusion with conﬁdence, the report states that the investigation established that certain actions or events occurred. A statement that the investigation did not establish particular facts does not mean there was no evidence of those facts. In evaluating whether evidence about collective action of multiple individuals constituted a crime, we applied the framework of conspiracy law, not the concept of “collusion.” In so doing, the Ofﬁce recognized that the word “collud[e]” was used in communications with the Acting Attorney General confirming certain aspects of the investigation’s scope and that the term has frequently been invoked in public reporting about the investigation. But collusion is not a speciﬁc offense or theory of liability found in the United States Code, nor is it a term of art in federal criminal law. For those reasons, the Ofﬁce’s focus in analyzing questions of joint criminal liability was on conspiracy as deﬁned in federal law. In connection with that analysis, we addressed the factual question whether members of the Trump Campaign “coordinat[ed]”ma term that appears in the appointment order—with Russian election interference activities. Like collusion, “coordination” does not have a settled deﬁnition in federal criminal law. We understood coordination to require an agreement—tacit or expressmbetween the Trump Campaign and the Russian government on election interference. That requires more than the two parties taking actions that were informed by or responsive to the other’s actions or interests. We applied the term coordination in that sense when stating in the report that the investigation did not establish that the Trump Campaign coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities. *** The report on our investigation consists of two volumes: Volume I describes the factual results of the Special Counsel’s investigation of Russia’s interference in the 20l6 presidential election and its interactions with the Trump Campaign. Section I describes the scope of the investigation. Sections II and III describe the principal ways Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election. Section IV describes links between the RuSsian '
