If you've watched even one news broadcast over the last couple of years you know that Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller, III, has been busy. He has spent the last 22 months investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the subsequent attempts by the president, Donald Trump, to obstruct said investigation. Now that the findings of his investigation have been released, it's important we read them for ourselves. However, since you might not have time to read a 448-page, information-dense, legal report, I've decided to read it to you.
This section of the Mueller Report provides us with information on the genesis of the investigation, the scope of the Special Counsel's mandate, and the structure and procedures of the Office of the Special Counsel.
The Special Counsel lays out the contents of Volume I of the Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 Presidential Election. The Summary is divided into sections covering the Russian Social Media Campaign, the Russian Hacking Operations, Russian Contacts with the Trump campaign, and The Special Counsel's Charging Decisions.
