Republican group to hand-deliver Mueller report to every GOP lawmaker


Republican group to hand-deliver Mueller report to every GOP lawmaker
By Rebecca Klar - 05/30/19 11:13 AM EDT


A Republican group is hand-delivering special counsel Robert Mueller's report to every lawmaker in its party on the heels of his first public remarks on the two-year Russia investigation.

Republicans for the Rule of Law announced Thursday it will deliver a copy of the report with highlighted sections to Republicans in Congress.

"As Republicans and conservatives, we consider an uncompromising commitment to the rule of law in the best interests of both the Republican Party and the United States," the group said in a letter to lawmakers.

"With this pre-highlighted copy of the Mueller report in hand, all Republicans in Congress will have an easy defense against charges of not having read it," the letter continues.


On Wednesday, Mueller said the report is his testimony and he does not want to appear before Congress. He said everything that needs to be said is laid out in the 448-page document.

2. Well I guess they are serious when it comes to shithole . .

Will the Republicans read it and understand it, or will they ignore the facts, and remain the dumbass jerks they are.

But alas, seems like some Republicans are fighting back tho and they is what NP is looking for, a joint effort.

3. So they still won't read it, they'll just have some cherry picked

phrases that were taken out of context to fluff up their delicate egos. They still won't understand the subject matter and how corrupt Trump is.

Nor will they care.

4. Have to give Bill Kristol some credit

He's one of the driving forces behind Republicans for the Rule of Law group. At least he's calling out Rs to do their civic duty, not just wringing his hands about what Dems are/are not doing.

5. the pressure is building

More republicans on board, more Democrats on board, more call outs from every corner. And this following the clear show of lawlessness on the part of the administration as they ignore subpoenas and calls to testify.

6. There is an old saying

You can hand a republican the Mueller report, but you can't make him read.

7. No you can't, but

we can then chalk it up to willful ignorance if we have them on record as receiving a copy. That can no longer be used as an excuse.
