House Democrats Reading Entire Redacted Mueller Report Out Loud For Hours

Published

on

A group of more than 25 angry Democrats are taking turns reading the entire redacted report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller out loud on the House floor.

The group began reading the report that found no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign in the Rules Committee room on Capitol Hill Thursday around noon ET and planned on finishing the 448-page report in 12- 14 hours.

The report is being live-streamed and the recording will be made into an audio-book.

The spectacle comes as Democrats demand the entire, unredacted Mueller report be disclosed and they are pursing legal action to obtain it.

Pennsylvania Democrat Mary Gay Scanlon, vice chairwoman of the House Judiciary Committee, who rallied Democrats to join her in the public reading, warns the report indicates there are instances that could qualify as obstruction of justice.

“We’ve been saying for weeks that if you think there was no obstruction and no collusion, you haven’t read the Mueller report,” Scanlon told the Washington Post. “So the ongoing quest has been, ‘How do we get that story out there while we are waiting for the witness to come in?”

Scanlon insists Democrats’ 12 hour stunt staged on the House floor has nothing to do with politics.

“It’s not a ploy to keep anything going.The Mueller report was a mandate from the Department of Justice that there be an investigation into these very troubling aspects about what was happening in our government,” she said. “So you know, it may be inconvenient, it may be time-consuming, but its what we have to do.”

Last week, the House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed the Department of Justice for the full unredacted report. Attorney General William Barr rejected their demand and the committee voted to hold Barr in contempt. The attorney general, however, will not be held in contempt without votes from full House.

President Trump countered the third hour of Democrats’ marathon reading of Mueller’s report with a 25 minute speech on immigration from the White House Rose Garden Thursday.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced Thursday his panel will vote on “enforcement action” against Barr or the Justice Department next week, after the Justice Department missed a Wednesday deadline to hand over the unredacted version of Mueller’s report.

Schiff insists he requested the report and “a dozen narrow sets of documents” that were referred in the report to determine whether the department was acting in good faith.

“The deadline came and went without the production of a single document, raising profound questions about whether the department has any intention to honor its legal obligations,” Schiff said. “If they don’t demonstrate some good faith we will be forced to compel them to honro their legal commitments.”

House Republicans Hoping to Get Americans Back to Work By End of April

It’s a aspiration, not a plan.

Published

on

House Republicans are considering plans that would help Americans get back to work by the end of the month. Kevin Brady of Texas told reporters on a conference call that the caucus is preparing preliminary plans that phase the workforce back in at the end of April.

Our focus is on locking down the virus while we’re taking the steps now to prepare to reopen the economy by the end of the month if the virus permits.”

Brady was careful to qualify that there’s no guarantee the public health situation in the United States would allow such a development.

“I think we should all expect the jobs, the unemployment in the GDP numbers to feel brutal over the short term. It’s because they are. This economy is taking hits like we’ve not seen in most of our lifetimes. But it is just a short-term hit.

Initial social distancing guidelines set forth by the White House in conjunction with the CDC were extended from two weeks to April 30th earlier in the week, suggesting the executive branch may be cautiously looking towards the end of April to begin phasing out the unprecedented disruptions to everyday American life.

It is worth noting that an early cease to social distancing and commonsense measures to deter the spread of the Chinese coronavirus could prove to be even more harmful than the negative impacts to the economy since the beginning of the virus-related recession. This can’t be rushed. But the consequences of the economic damage are real, and all Americans should look to get everyday economic life up and running against as soon as possible.
