    Dow retains modest intraday gain after redacted Mueller report released publicly

    Major U.S. stock indexes Thursday morning saw steady trade as a highly anticipated redacted copy of Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion with Russia and President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign was released to the public, with lawmakers set to pore over the more than 400-page document. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.3% at 26,523, not far from a record high, while the S&P 500 index was flat at 2,899 and the Nasdaq Composite Index declined 0.2% at 7,979. A quick read of the Mueller report shows that the special counsel ultimately didn't reach a conclusion on whether Trump committed a crime, in part because of legal guidance that a sitting president cannot be indicted, the Wall Street Journal wrote.
