Far too many Republicans in Congress have failed to read the entire Mueller Report, and they don’t appear to be in any hurry to do so. Recently, multiple different lawmakers on the Right, and even a few on the Left, were asked why they hadn’t read the report yet, and their answers are beyond pathetic. Some said it was too “tedious” while others said they didn’t see a need for it. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains why every lawmaker should read this report from cover to cover.

Well folks, it's now been several months since the Mueller report was made public, even if heavily redacted, and you would think by this point, every member of Congress would have read this thing as Elizabeth Warren said, cover to cover. But unfortunately that's not the case. And recently politico tracked down about a dozen or so lawmakers to ask them, why haven't you gotten around to reading the Mueller report? And their responses are absolutely pathetic. Most of them, of course, obviously Republicans who really don't want to know what's in there. But in all fairness, there's still plenty of Democrats who are, we haven't read it yet either. You know, we got things happening. So I'm going to read you a sampling of some of these pathetic responses coming from lawmakers as to why they don't care about what is in this Mueller report. And that's why they haven't read it. Here it is.
First one is a Republican Senator Tim Scott from South Carolina. He says, what's the point when asked why he hasn't read it? He says, what's the point? I think the point is that, uh, a lot of it deals with the president committing crimes, specifically obstruction of justice on roughly 10 different occasions. Um, that to me would seem like the point. Then you have Lisa Murkowski Republican from Alaska who says, quote, it's tedious. Oh, whew. 400 some odd pages. A, that's tedious, right? It's also your job though. It's your job. If you find your job, tedious, boring, not rewarding leave. I'm sure nobody's going to miss you. She goes on to say, in fairness, I haven't picked it up in at least two weeks. Oh, well that's good. You know, maybe you've got a nice, good a paperweight now. Maybe use it to prop the door open. Who knows?
As long as you don't actually have to read it and see what the president of your party is actually up to. Then you've got Fred Upton, a Republican from Michigan who says, I've got a lot on my reading list support. Fred Upton, I mean. I guess he wants to get to it, but he's probably halfway through the Harry Potter series right now and he doesn't want to take a break to read this other story. I don't know what the case is, but Fred Upton assures us it's on his list. She's got to get through all the other books first because clearly those are more important than learning about the president, possibly committing crimes. Then we get to some Democrats here, a representative David Price of North Carolina says, I'd be pretty reckless to say I have a full comprehension. I need to spend some more time with it. Okay, well that's better than what the Republicans said, but by all means, if you know you need to spend more time with it, go and spend more time with it. Again, just as was the case with Murkowski and everybody else, it's part of your job, so, so please do your job. I can't believe I have to even ask that, but please do your job. Then you have representative Collin Peterson, Democrat from Michigan who said it is what it is. That's why he hasn't read the report. It is what it is. I don't even think representative Peterson there understood the question. It is what it is.
