In the cases where there was actual evidence to be examined, I believe they were investigated.
Umm... yeah - if you call gathering all of the evidence in order to cover it all up and make sure it never sees the light of day, being 'investigated'.
The thing is, that as one investigation was coming to conclusion, five new accusations were being proposed.
Correct again... the CCS (Clinton Crime Syndicate) were really busy, weren't they.
I'm not about not throwing the book at Obama, and the Clintons (& accomplices) but if there have been investigations and they came to conclusions, it's in no-one's interest to flog a dead horse.
The horse isn't dead, it is hidden - but hopefully, it will be released soon to run free.
Hillary didn't get charged, Trump didn't get charged. Doesn't mean that they are innocent, or guilty. But it does mean that no-one's going to go there a second time unless the evidence changes (bigly).
Hillary wasn't charged because her minions covered everything up in anticipation of her being elected and giving them cushy jobs so they could continue their crime spree. Thankfully, Trump's election put an end to that.
Trump wasn't charged because, in spite of 2 1/2+ years of investigations by an army of lawyers dedicated to finding any and all dirt on Trump they could find, including an almost 2 year long SC investigation, there simply wasn't anything there, and all they are left with is a hopelessly inadequate claim of 'obstruction', that isn't.

Is that what "not exhonorated" and "not indict a sitting President" and the 10 noted instances of possible obstruction of the course of justice means?
Your (and Trump's) assumption that he was the primary target of the investigation is shown to be incorrect, and clearly explained why, in the Mueller report.
You should read the actual report, rather than the headlines.
Durham is focused on determining whether any government or private figures who came in contact with the Trump campaign in 2016 "were engaged in improper surveillance," a U.S. official told me when asked about the Mifsud overture.
For those who don't remember, Mifsud is a Maltese-born academic with a VIP Rolodex who frequented Rome and London for years and engaged at the highest levels of Western diplomatic and intelligence circles. Mueller's team alleges that Mifsud is the person who fed a story in spring 2016 to Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos about Moscow possessing purloined emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It was the earliest known contact in the now-debunked collusion narrative and the seminal event that the FBI says prompted it on July 31, 2016, to open its probe into the Trump campaign.
Mueller concluded that Mifsud was a person with extensive Russia ties who planted the story about the Clinton emails in Moscow and then lied about his dealings with Papadopoulos when interviewed by the FBI in 2017. Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Mifsud.
But unlike others accused of misleading Mueller - including Papadopoulos, former Trump adviser Michael Flynn and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort - Mifsud was not charged with a crime.
Conservative defenders of President Trump, including former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), have raised recent concerns that Mueller's portrayal of the Mifsud-Papadopoulos contacts doesn't add up.
Roh told me the information he is preparing to share with Durham's team from his client will accentuate those concerns.
Mifsud was a "longtime cooperator of western intel" who was asked specifically by his contacts at Link University in Rome and the London Center of International Law Practice (LCILP) - two academic groups with ties to Western diplomacy and intelligence - to meet with Papadopoulos at a dinner in Rome in mid-March 2016, Roh told me.
