Jan 10, 2020 rated it really liked it
No question it's an important report, but reading it was difficult. It's disheartening, frustrating, and alarming. I never imagined our government would stand by as we were attacked by Russia, and I never imagined we'd have such a dangerous, self-serving, incapable, immoral, dishonest man in the oval office. These are frightening times. What has happened to the rule of law? I pray voters will come to their senses quickly.

The Mueller Report is definitely required reading. Even though Mueller testified before Congress last week and a lot of details came out, this book should be read to understand the full scope of the investigation.
The Reports findings outlines how the Russians interfered with our election and the Trump team complicity and the Report also outlined quite clearly obstruction of justice. Some important points of attention were the number of people charged/convicted. The number of additional people

This is a succinct, well-organized report. I enjoyed learning about the investigative process and all the legal considerations. Having read the report I have a better understanding of decisions and evaluations made and not-made. When the non-redacted version is released I'll read it, as well.

Mueller definitely wants Congress to pursue impeachment proceedings. I wish everyone in the U.S. would read "The Mueller Report" (available free at your local library or online U.S. Department of Justice website: and learn the truth about the many times Trump obstructed justice or tried to. It was also frightening to learn more about the Russian's meddling into the 2016 presidential election. The Mueller Report is a real eye-opener.

Trump never answered

An important book for all to read to better understand and appreciate the Special Counsel's efforts and the final report despite the redactions and despite Barr's attempt to ignore and distort Mueller's findings. Mueller did the reader a favor by providing concise overviews of different parts of the investigation with more details following. Three things especially got my attention: the number of people charged/convicted already; the number of additional people to possibly be charged as ...more

The Mueller Report doesn't cover too much information that was unknown leading up to it's release/publication. However, having all of the information pulled together into a report that follows a timeline really helps paint a picture of Russia's extensive interference into the 2016 Presidential election.

The social media influence was apparent to anyone on Facebook or Twitter in the six months leading up to the election, but the hacking was less obvious before the public details were elaborated

Absolutely fascinating. Very clearly written, without legalese for the most part. I read it because I've been following the political situation closely since Trump was "elected" and, though I regularly watch/listen to sources I trust, who have summarized the Report, I wanted to know for myself exactly what Mueller's findings were. Yes, it's a long document, but definitely worth reading.

Key takeaways: (1) While extensive collaboration and cooperation between Trump associates and Russian

This has been a very good read. It's very organized and surprisingly easy to follow for an over 400 page government document. I applaud Mueller for making the report easy to follow because people need to read it. The Report covers two things, one collusion, and two obstruction of justice. After reading, I surprisingly admire Russia's efforts. The scope of their efforts is just unreal. It really points out how fragile our election system is and that actions need to be taken in order to keep this ...more

Every American should read this factual report about the Russian attack on our election process, society, and democracy. The word "fact" doesn't seem strong enough when the facts are corroborated by sworn witnesses, dates, times, and places in staggering detail. The Mueller Report is not a feel-good read, but it's a necessary read, a dutiful read, for anyone forming, stating, or adopting an opinion about the events surrounding the 2016 election.

Documentation every American, regardless of party affiliation must read. It is a long read with lots of repetition, albeit necessary for building the case against Trump, which the report succeeds in doing. Helps the reader understand the judicial system and why decisions were made to support the case. Recommend strongly.

Should be required reading for everyone who is eligible for the future US elections. Will or should be in every library going forward.
Even with the redactions this report is full of information if you read it with a nonpartisan and open mind

There is a lot to get through with this one namely the “redacted see....” nonsense, but you get the drift. My take away, the content in the real illegal stuff isn’t the worst part, it’s the President’s behavior otherwise. No words could describe the level of human garbage we have in office.

Whatever your politics on the issue, this was very well-written. It didn’t fall into a bunch of legalese, making it digestible for those of us who aren’t lawyers.

Very informative read that puts all the information we've been hearing about for the past 3 years into a coherent, comprehensive report. When read in this way, parts are quite shocking!

Unless you've read the report your opinion on the investigation is of no import.

A must read.

This is not light reading. It is barely prose - but it isn't supposed to be that, either. A very VERY significant report, and even if one only reads the executive summaries, critically important.

There is a lot there (and if I ever wished to be an investigator, that ship has sailed - I don't have the patience and self-control for that).

I wish - I VERY MUCH wish - that the DOJ had never made that decision to avoid actually indicting a sitting president. Because if they hadn't, Trump would have
