  • Required Reading

    Gotta love all the comments here by the trolls telling you that they don’t need the Washington Post telling them what to if they actually would have read this tome! No point in reviewing Mueller‘s work, as it stands by itself. The report is well-written and structured, as you would expect from a top-notch team of investigators and prosecutors. And anyone wishing to comment on the report should at least read it! As for the WP commentary, I welcome and read commentary of all kinds, not just the ones that agree with my opinion. I’m unlikely to make large changes to what I believe to be true, but there are changes and shifts on the margins. I recognize Washington Post coverage and commentary for what it is, just like I recognize Fox commentary for what it is, and adjust windage as necessary. Regardless of where one stands politically, this should be required reading for anyone who deems themselves to be an informed citizen.

    This is the epitome of modern journalism. Publish a raw report yet provide commentary on how they want you to think. Just another piece to brainwash the uninformed.
  • Thought-provoking

    By swissmoon99
    You will hear Trump supporters “build a wall” against this book as it does not support their narrative, but being an Independant voter going in with no bias, I found it quite informative. It breaks through the propaganda, straight-out lies and cover up's that this presidency has indulged and created. They lie to th American people. Thanks to reading the Mueller Report (redacted version) and this book, it has opened many eyes. Thank you.

  • Fake News

    By Iron man 4674
    Fake News. Democrats can’t deal with the fact that they lost to the best president
  • Opinionated, biased, Tells You What to Think

    By DT Armstrong
    This book is somebody’s opinion about the Mueller report and explains to you what think instead of how to think for yourself. I just wanted to read the Mueller report; I can make up my own mind and form my own opinions, I don’t need someone at the Washington post to tell me what to think. A waste of $7.99
