THE MUELLER REPORT documents in thorough, professional detail the investigations that have consumed the nation over the past 2+ years. Volume I shines a light on how Russia interfered in the 2016 Election while Volume II explores whether the President committed obstruction of justice. Yes, it’s long and yes, there’s legalese. BUT there are also sections recounting the events, and they are just riveting, making the REPORT a page-turner. Sadly, this isn’t a work of fiction. It’s fascinating to learn that much of what has been reported in the press (and derided as “Fake News”) is actually in the Report, corroborated by the witnesses and people involved. I’m thankful I live in a country where I have access to such high-level documentation, and this edition includes a treasure trove of supplemental material that helps clarify the Report for the reader. It’s incumbent upon all Americans to pay attention. READ THIS REPORT if you’re able, then make up your own mind. Do not let one person, group, party, or network tell you what to think. The integrity of our next election and the future of our democracy depend upon it.

For 15 months, Liberals insisted that Trump could not become president. They presented rigged polls to prove it (non-responding Blacks and Latinos were assumed to be Hillary voters). They denounced legitimate polls (the USC/L.A.Times poll generally had Trump ahead throughout the race; two independent academic experts predicted he would win based on primary strength and huge rallies). Day after day, Liberal commentators ridiculed Trump as a prankster whose whole candidacy was a stunt, even after he easily won the Republican nomination. This was designed to demoralize Trump supporters and depress their turnout.
--- Libs assumed women would vote for Hillary overwhelmingly. But too many women remembered how she called Bill's accusers "bimbos" and "trailer trash" in the 1990's. She would lose the White women's vote to Trump by 10 points.
--- Hillary set up an illegal email server to hide many millions in payoffs for State Dept trade approvals; see CLINTON CASH. Comey acknowledged her guilt, but refused to prosecute.
--- Hacked emails showed Hillary had conspired with the DNC to cheat Bernie. The Dem Establishment handled the fiasco by blaming Russia for the hacking (without allowing the FBI to examine the supposedly hacked server): It was not Hillary's crookedness that mattered, but the harmful exposé. Hillary paid seatfillers to replace Bernie delegates at the Convention, a fantastic imposture on TV viewers.
--- Hillary repeatedly told gay groups that straight White males were "deplorables". Her campaign was so disorganized that DNC Chair Brazile considered replacing her with Biden on grounds of health (her fainting spells).
--- Meanwhile Obama and Comey used the Steele Dossier, a bundle of lies that Hillary had bought from Russians, to obtain warrants to spy on Trump's campaign. If they had found any Russian collusion by Trump, they certainly would have advertised it.
--- Trump claimed the system was rigged, as indeed it was as shown above. Fearing that his spying on Trump would come out after Hillary had won and undermine her victory, Obama declared that the system could not be rigged and that voters should reject anyone who said it was. Michelle denounced Trump for reserving the right to challenge the result if corruption was evident: it was outrageous that he would not accept his coming loss in advance.
--- This insidious Liberal/Democrat/Media war of deception on the voters came to a humiliating climax when real votes were counted and Trump won by a wide margin of Electors.
--- Their lies so disastrously overthrown, Dems were not contrite. They reversed the logic of their attacks, and went right on hurling them. Suddenly the election that could not be rigged, when they thought Hillary would win, had been rigged by the Russians, once she had lost. The blatantness of this insult to reason and equity did not embarrass or inhibit the hordes of Trump-haters.
--- Dems shamelessly repudiated all their recent insistence on accepting the election result. Indeed they did far worse in defeat than they had warned Trump would do. They rioted, vandalized, beat Trump supporters, cried "Resist!", "Not my president!" etc. They required recounts (which only increased Trump's lead). Then they tried to corrupt the Electoral College, a massive assault on the Constitution. They demanded a witch hunt into Russian collusion. For two years they promised that Trump was a Russian agent and Mueller would prove it.
--- Once again, Dem lies and smears were refuted by reality when Mueller's Report was issued: NO RUSSIAN COLLUSION nor any crime. Dems now hope to convince the public that Trump has to be guilty of something unless proven innocent beyond any doubt whatever. Mueller did not prove Trump innocent to that degree, thus Trump is guilty, or at least he could be, which is just as bad. Dems will go on accusing Trump in this fashion till the next election.

Since I am a news junkie and along with the tweets, the interviews, the tweets, the panel discussions and the tweets, not much of this was a surprise. It reads like a condensed version of what has been going on for the last 3 years. Since over 1000 prosecutors have said with this information, they would indict the president, this report needs to be taken seriously. I was a little surprised, since the President reminds us of his intelligence and good memory , that many of his written responses to the questions were "I can't recall", "I can't remember" and "I have no recollection of that". Not good qualities for a President to have, There is additional information for the reader who doesn't keep up with the news. Terms, people, etc. offer extra insight. I really doubt that the previous person even read the book . It looks more like a prepared statement that was just inserted. The report does NOT say No collusion and NO obstruction. Only Trump and AG Barr are saying that.

Volume II - "...while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him." The price of the book is worth seeing this in print even if one does not read further. Exonerate means absolve from blame. Not exonerate = not absolve from blame. The last two definitional phrases are for those Trump fans that are poorly educated.

"The Mueller Report" was very informative and enlightening. For me, I would hope that the book would be part of U.S. History classes for generations to come. I was proud to tell my family and friends that I had taken the time to read the most exhaustive study of what occurred in the 2016 election. As others have said, "The Mueller Report" is a "good read" and a rather fast read. It really was not asking much of me to now be able to share informatively with my family what will undoubtedly be the most important political question of the current generation of voters!

I ordered the book from Amazon because I wanted to read it ASAP.

The insights from WaPo's investigative reporters are exceedingly valuable in mapping out the events and the investigation. Unfortunately, the print of Mueller's report is tiny and hard to read without a magnifying glass.

Mueller and his team did a great job of connecting the dots between sections so that you can read it cover-to-cover or by issue. Yes, it is annoying that the good stuff was redacted.

It is abundantly obvious that Mueller was unable to acquire the evidence to meet the "beyond a reasonable doubt" standard due to very effective obstruction of justice. He repeatedly met with stone walls of witnesses who either didn't recall, destroyed evidence, refused to testify, or blatantly lied.

As a retired attorney, I am confident that most attorneys could read the entire report in less than a day if they had an 8 1/2" x 11" copy. It is very interesting and informative.

"...if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgement. Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him." - p. 446 (p. 182 of Vol. II)
