Summarizing the results of the investigation, Mr. Mueller said:
“We found no evidence that anyone at the NFL had or saw the in-elevator video before it was publicly shown. We also found no evidence that a woman at the NFL acknowledged receipt of that video in a voicemail message on April 9, 2014.
“We concluded there was substantial information about the incident – even without the in-elevator video – indicating the need for a more thorough investigation. The NFL should have done more with the information it had, and should have taken additional steps to obtain all available information about the February 15 incident.”
It says, in part

What a relief it must be for the NFL that the NFL found no evidence of wrongdoing by the NFL in its NFL-led investigation.

Interesting that major criticism is too much deference to legal system where, in past, there has been little to no such deference. #Mueller

I don't think he was trying to be funny, just making a point.

They tried to be rather transparent with what they did.

We did, however, ask for the phone number of the law-enforcement source's disposable cellphone and access to the voicemail message reportedly left by the female caller.7 The Associated Press declined. We also offered the Associated Press an opportunity to search our telephone data for any portion of the source's disposable cellphone number. The Associated Press declined that offer as well.

We created a database of all 1,583 outgoing calls to 1,050 unique telephone numbers from the League's office on April 9. We first excluded numbers contained in the 2014 NFL Blue Book—a phone directory that lists senior NFL employees as well as owners, coaches, and employees of the 32 NFL teams. There were 143 such calls to 112 unique telephone numbers. We then researched and ultimately called the remaining 938 numbers, regardless of the length of the call, to identify each recipient. As part of that effort, we asked each League employee from whose extension calls were placed to identify the numbers he or she had called. The employees identified NFL vendors, former players, nearby restaurants, doctors' offices, family members, and the like. Finally, we validated that information by calling each person or entity identified.
