Democrats to Stage Marathon Reading of the Mueller Report on Thursday
(Bloomberg) -- Democrats plan to deliver a marathon public reading of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, staged Thursday in a House committee room.
"This report illustrates a presidency founded in opportunism, devoid of respect for public service and the rule of law," Representative Mary Gay Scanlon of Pennsylvania, vice chairwoman of the House Judiciary Committee and a leader of the reading effort, said in a statement. “This administration and its enablers do not want the American people hear the contents of this report."
More than 20 Democrats plan to take part, reading in shifts in the House Rules Committee meeting room in the Capitol, according to a notice about the planned event. The reading will start at noon Thursday on the first page, where Mueller’s report declares: "The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion."
It will continue through the report’s two volumes, excluding the appendices and still-secret portions.
