House Democrats teamed up Thursday to perform a marathon public reading of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s nearly 500-page report, in a spectacle that underscored the growing tensions with the Justice Department over access to the complete cache of Russia probe documents.
House Judiciary Committee Vice Chairwoman Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon, D-Pa., led the effort from the House Rules Committee Room, starting on Page 1 at noon.
The article goes on to state the following:
“This #LawlessPresident does not want the American people to know what is inside the #MuellerReport. Tune in now as we begin to read the entire report, cover to cover, live,” Scanlon tweeted as the reading got started.
Scanlon told The Washington Post earlier this week that the reading would take up to 14 hours, and the recording would be made into an audiobook.
The congresswoman was joined by other House Democrats who are vocal Trump critics, including House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler; House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters; and Reps. Jamie Raskin, Pramila Jayapal, Ilhan Omar, Sheila Jackson Lee, Zoe Lofgren and Ted Lieu.
Scanlon, however, denied that the reading was a political stunt, claiming that it was “not a ploy to keep anything going.”
“The Mueller report was a mandate from the Department of Justice that there be an investigation into these very troubling aspects about what was happening in our government,” she told the Post. “So you know, it may be inconvenient, it may be time-consuming, but it’s what we have to do.”

It was released to the public so if I wanted to read it page for page I could do it myself. Democrats need a new PR advisor.

Ridiculous. The Democrats are abdicating their constitutional duty to have Mueller testify. They say no, then fine them heavily and/or arrest them. Enough of this nonsense.
