(CNSNews.com) -- In a statement about the release of the Mueller report to Attorney General William Barr, the government watchdog group Judicial Watch said President Donald Trump "has been vindicated," that the Russia collusion claim was more than just a hoax -- it was a "criminal abuse" -- and that the targeting of Trump served to "protect Hillary Clinton and her anablers/co-conspirators in the Obama administration from prosecution."

"The long, national nightmare is over and President Trump has been vindicated," said Judicial Watch in its March 24 statement.  "The corruptly created and constitutionally abusive Mueller investigation failed to find any evidence to support the big lie that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government."

In the actual report, part of which is quoted verbatim by Attorney General Barr, it states, “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

Judicial Watch further said, "We’re pleased that AG Barr rejected Mueller’s attempt to smear President Trump with obstruction of justice innuendo by concluding that no such charges could be credibly sustained. Frankly, Mueller never had a valid basis upon which to investigate President Trump for obstruction of justice."

"Let’s be clear, neither Mueller, the Obama FBI, DOJ, CIA, State Department, nor the Deep State ever had a good-faith basis to pursue President Trump on Russia collusion," said Judicial Watch. 

"Russia collusion wasn’t just a hoax, it is a criminal abuse, which is why Judicial Watch has fought and will continue to fight for Russiagate documents in federal court," they said. 

"The targeting of President Trump served to protect Hillary Clinton and her enablers/co-conspirators in Obama administration from prosecution," said the government watchdog.

"Attorney General Barr can begin restoring the credibility of the Justice Department by finally initiating a thorough investigation of the Clinton emails and related pay-to-play scandals and the abuses behind the targeting of President Trump," the group said.
