“The #lawless President does not want to know the American people what is inside of the #Mueller report. Tune in now, as we begin, read the entire report, cover, cover, live,” Scanlon has, as the reading started.
Scanlon told The Washington Post earlier in the week that the reading of up to 14 hours, and the recording would be an audio book.
The Congressman along with other house Democrats, the vocal Trump’s critics, including House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler; House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters; and Reps. Jamie Raskin, Pramila Jayapal, Ilhan Omar, Sheila Jackson Lee, Zoe Lofgren and Ted Lieu.
Scanlon, however, denied that the reading was a political Trick, claimed that it was “a Trick to keep everything in motion.”
“The Miller report was a mandate from the Ministry of justice that there was an investigation into this very disturbing aspects about what had happened, in our government,” she told the Post. “So, you know, it may be inconvenient, it can be very time consuming, but it is what we have to do.”

Barr does not comply with a subpoena, and President Trump, in a bid to protect the files, the asserted executive privilege over them.
Barr was already a minimally revised version of the report available to certain Democrats in Congress for the review. Nadler, though, has not verified that the version of the special counsel’s report.
Barr has been under heavy scrutiny over its handling of the Miller report. In March, when Müller and his results sent to the Ministry of justice, Barr, published a four-page summary for the public. Barr explains that the special counsel found no evidence of collusion between members of the Trump campaign, and the Russians in the 2016 presidential elections, and not reach a conclusion as to whether Trump obstructed justice.
Barr announced in his conclusion, however, that the evidence was not sufficient to charge the President with obstruction of justice, punishable by law.
The full report was released weeks later, but tongues about sources and methods, grand jury material, and areas for the protection of the Reputation interest of the peripheral actors in the probe included Bork.
The Democrats have for Müller to come to Capitol Hill to testify on its results and the process. The judiciary Committee will reach a provisional date for Müller to appear for may 15. Mueller, though, was not present.
Meanwhile, the full house is expected to decide whether to keep Barr in contempt of Congress, with some Democrats also call for the attorney general, be arrested.
