Today’s Action: Tell your Members of Congress to READ the Mueller Report

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) and Republican Representative Justin Amash (MI-3) have two things in common: they’ve both read the full Mueller report, and they’re both calling for impeachment.

Amash believes one more thing: that those not calling for impeachment are doing so because they haven’t read the full report, dissuaded and placated by Attorney General William Barr’s deliberate misrepresentation of the findings.

A two-year investigation into the highest office of the land? Yeah, that seems like something our elected officials should actually see for themselves, even the redacted public version.

Email or call your Members of Congress, and ask whether your Senators and Representative have read the (redacted) report in its entirety for themselves. And if you get any answer besides “yes,” tell them anything less than “yes” is unacceptable.

The Washington Post thinks Amash might be onto something. The newspaper surveyed the members of the Congressional Judicial and Intelligence Committees, and found that 3 out of 10 (mostly Republicans) declined to answer the question of “did you read the full report?”

These committees are those most heavily involved with possible impeachment proceedings – so the remaining members of Congress are even less likely to have read Mueller’s report, relying instead on Barr’s summary (AKA Barr’s defensive, evasive love-letter for Trump).

It is truly a bare-minimum request that every Member of Congress read Mueller’s report for themselves if they are to actually represent the American people. Because if they can’t do that, what other basic facts are they choosing to ignore?

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress, and tell them to read the full public Mueller report. Ask if they have finished it yet…and if not, remind them that we elected them to do a job, not outsource it.
