RENO, Nev. (AP) - Reaction is breaking along partisan lines in Nevada after special counsel Robert Mueller released his report concluding President Donald Trump tried to seize control of the Russia probe but that there was insufficient evidence to charge him with obstruction of justice.

Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald said Thursday the release of Mueller's report confirms there was no collusion. He says Democrats have spent the past two years wasting time and tax dollars on an "absurd witch hunt."

Democratic Rep. Dina Titus says the report details Russia's efforts to help Trump win the presidency, along with "disturbing evidence" that Trump engaged in obstruction of justice while telling "outright lies" to the American public.

She says Mueller must testify before Congress about his investigation so Congress can hold the president accountable for his actions.
