House Dems Plan to Spend 12 Hours Reading the Full Mueller Report


A group of more than 20 House Democrats are planning to spend 12 hours reading Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted final report, detailing whether President Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with the Russians, from the House floor on Thursday according to a report by The Hill.

Attorney General William Barr released a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report in mid-April to the Congress and the American public. The report found that there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Since Mueller’s redacted final report was released, it has been discussed ad nauseam by cable news, political pundits, and members of the Democratic Party.

The redacted final Mueller report is available online for the public to review, and it has also been turned into a hard copy book by the Harvard Book Store where patrons can purchase it for $18.95.

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said that he would “be amazed if even one percent of the American people have read the Mueller report, in part or in its entirety.”

So how do Democrats plan on increasing Americans’ awareness of what is in the Mueller report?

By spending 12 to 14 hours reading its 448 pages out loud from the House floor. Coverage of this spectacle in its entirety will probably be limited to C-SPAN, which does not score very highly when it comes to viewership.

“We’ve been saying for weeks that if you think there was no obstruction and no collusion, you haven’t read the Mueller report,” Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) told The Hill. “So the ongoing quest has been how do we get that story out there while we are waiting for the witnesses to come in.”
