Here are how many articles, how and shares The Mueller probe has been powered since its inception

Evie Fordham | Policy and health care reporter

Special consultant Robert Mueller's Russian investigation has fed 533,074 articles on the web since its inception in May 2017, according to NewsWhip data quoted by Axios.

After almost two years of saturated media coverage on the topic, Attorney General William Barr delivered a report of the special consultant's investigation at the Congress conference. Barr wrote in a note that the special consultant found no evidence that Trump's campaign conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 elections.

The investigation continues to dominate the headlines: all four stories on the front page of The New York Times were Mueller's Monday. (RELATED: The Justice Department delivers the conclusions of the Mueller to the Congress – No collusion)

More than 530,000 articles on "Russia and Trump / Mueller" have generated 245 million likes, comments and shares on Twitter and Facebook since May 2017, according to Axios. This is not counting all the transmission time that the survey (and expert opinions) have received on cable news.

MSNBC appears to be leading the group when it comes to Mueller's cover, with over 4,200 posts mentioning the Mueller probe popping up when they are searched, according to research by the Republican National Committee (RNC). The RNC also found that 1,965 CNN news items mentioned the Mueller investigation since May 2017, while the New York Times mentioned 1,156 and The Washington Post.

Mueller's report has apparently attracted more coverage than other issues that also interest Americans. For example, WaPo has published another 192 stories about the Russian interference probe rather than the defeat of the Islamic State by the Trump administration, according to research by the RNC.

Many experts on the right have urged media members to presumably cheer for a different result in the Mueller probe.

"Mueller: no evidence of collusion [with] Russia. Now the media that has invested so much in this narrative will accept it, remembering that it is not supposed to be the basis of the results? Or will they resist, looking for ways to save face in their previous (wrong) forecasts / coverage? ", Former NBC host Megyn Kelly he wrote on Twitter Sunday.
