Here's How to Read the Mueller Report

It is really important for everyone to read the Mueller Report.  Although the report is redacted, there is more than enough information to understand what happened.

After the 22-month probe, Mueller broke down his findings into two parts. Volume I of the report concludes that Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election occurred "in a sweeping and systematic fashion" and "violated U.S. criminal law". Volume II of the report addresses the obstruction of justice. 

Key points of the Mueller Report:

  • Mueller did not exonerate the President of the United States of obstruction of justice,
  • Obstruction of justice is a serious crime that strikes at the core of our justice system,
  • And the Constitution points to Congress to take action to hold the President accountable.
