I’m still recuperating from my misadventures in New England and Montreal—featuring a dead engine in the middle of Nowhere, New Hampshire and a back injury—so I’ve been blogging less. I’m also searching for work, so I’ve been preoccupied.
But I would be remiss if I didn’t share Expert Summaries of Mueller Report: A Collection, put out by Just Security. It’s got quite a masthead, including Barbara McQuade, Elie Honig, Harry Litman, Joyce Vance, and many more. Co-editor Ryan Goodman spells out their motivation in the introduction.
We at Just Security believe that it is accordingly more important than ever for Americans to be familiar with the contents of the Special Counsel’s Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election. To that end, we have created a digestible summary of the Report, broken down into 30 sections, which can be read in five to 10 minutes each. Each summary aims to present, in clear and straightforward language and without additional analysis or commentary, the findings of the Special Counsel as he presented them to the Attorney General.
These summaries are relevant not only to current congressional processes, but also for the historical record. The Special Counsel’s investigation is significant for understanding the events of 2016 and the conduct of the President toward the investigation. There will surely be many lessons drawn from the Special Counsel’s Report in the years ahead. We have thus undertaken this project with the goal of providing an easily accessible resource for the present moment and far beyond it.
Think of it as the Readers Digest version. Helpful for a lot of people, including me.
