Mueller Report – Dems Plan Marathon Reading on Thursday

 In opinion, Politics

Democrats have a plan to do a marathon reading session of the Mueller Report on Thursday. All 448 pages, in public, they’ll take turns reading it out loud. Will you tune in? Or will you go out in the garden and pull weeds? Wish we could pull some Democrat weeds out of our Congress. They are more interested in pursuing President Trump for everything including his Diet Coke habit instead of making American lives better.

Idiocy personified

Bloomberg reported,

“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.”

Give it up, morons, you’ve wasted enough time and money on trying to nail the President for things that don’t exist. We voted for someone who was not a politician. We aren’t Russian bots, nor did we vote as agents of Russia. Get over it.

As the National Review noted, AG Barr released a “less redacted” version of the report to 12 Congressional leaders.

As Congressional Democrats prepare to hold attorney general William Barr in contempt over his supposed lack of transparency, it’s worth remembering that he has made available to top Democrats the entirety of volume II of the Mueller report, save for two full and seven partial lines, which were redacted to protect grand jury secrecy in keeping with federal law.

The Democrats want a copy that is not redacted, never mind federal law.

This screenshot from the National Review shows an example of the legal redactions in it. Other pages are available in their article.

Of the twelve people allowed to view the less redacted report, not one Democrat viewed it. They felt that if they did so, it would “lessen the case” for the totally unredacted report. They have issued a subpoena for an unredacted report that contains about a million pages of “documentary evidence” that “relates to 22 ongoing criminal investigations.”

The Democrats are grandstanding in their hopes to continue to sway the American public to their side. So for the big marathon reading event, we recommend pulling weeds. It won’t be nearly as boring.
