About Us

Delivering the Mueller Report, in audiobook-style format, without political commentary. Due to the wide public interest in the "Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election," this project started with the belief that quality audio of the report should be available for anyone to hear -- and not hidden behind a paywall or require a subscription.For many of us, reading through the report page-by-page is too time consuming. This is the report, available piece-by-piece, for anyone to access it and listen in manageable portions.This podcast is not affiliated with or connected to the Special Counsel or the investigation.

IV. Conclusion

The final subsection of Volume 2 is merely one paragraph on page 182 from the report and restates what was in the Introduction and Executive Summary, "While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him." The podcast closes out with thanks to our Executive Producers and Associate Producers who initially helped to support this effort as well as others who helped provide value to this effort in some way.
