Mueller stated there was no conspiracy by any US citizen or any associate of the Trump campaign to help Russia meddle in the 2016 election.

some quotes from the Mueller report
Vol. 1, pg 9
the investigation established that several individuals affiliated with the Trump
Campaign lied to the Office, and to Congress
, about their interactions with Russian-affiliated
individuals and related matters. Those lies materially impaired the investigation of Russian
election interference.

Vol 1, pg 10
Further, the Office learned that some of the individuals we interviewed or whose conduct
we investigated-including some associated with the Trump Campaign---deleted relevant
communications
or communicated during the relevant period using applications that feature
encryption or that do not provide for long-term retention of data or communications records. In
such cases , the Office was not able to corroborate witness statements through comparison to
contemporaneous communications or fully question witnesses about statements that appeared
inconsistent with other known facts.

Accordingly, while this report embodies factual and legal determinations that the Office
believes to be accurate and complete to the greatest extent possible, given these identified gaps,
the Office cannot rule out the possibility that the unavailable information would shed additional
light on (or cast in a new light) the events described in the report
.

Vol. 1, pg 191
The Office determined that certain individuals associated with the Campaign lied to
investigators about Campaign contacts with Russia and have taken other actions to interfere with
the investigation. As explained below, the Office therefore charged some U.S. persons connected
to the Campaign with false statements and obstruction offenses
