The Mueller Report is finally available. Why haven’t you read it yet? There is nothing more dangerous to Trump’s re-election chances than an informed electorate. Turn off the pundits, put away the editorial page, and read the report as Mueller intended it to be read. Find links to versions for all platforms and print here, and plan your own book club gathering to discuss it with your friends.
The unprecedented obstruction and obfuscation of the Trump administration continues unabated since Mueller concluded his investigation. Attorney General Barr, who had already expressed his disdain for the investigation before his confirmation, tried to quash the impact of the report’s conclusions by releasing a misleading and specious four-page summary, allowing a false narrative to take hold in public discourse. Since then, Barr and the White House have refused to comply with Congress’s demands to submit vital testimony and documents, including the unredacted Mueller report and its underlying evidence. A fleet of lawsuits will soon make their way through the court system. Although they are likely to take some time, it is widely expected that all efforts will be settled in Congress’ favor.
In the meantime, it is absolutely critical that the accurate narrative of the Mueller investigation be restored. The best way to do that is to encourage every American to #READTHEREPORT. This report was made for the American people, to help them understand an extraordinary attack by a foreign enemy on our election, what Donald Trump and his aides had to do with it, and what efforts they made to obstruct justice. Everyone should read it.
