1 out of 5 stars (1 rating)

Publisher's Summary

The wait is over. After a two-year investigation, the results of The Mueller Report have been released to the public. Now listen to an audio version of one of the most talked about government documents in history. These are the redacted findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team, which was tasked with investigating Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, including exploring any links or coordination between President Donald J. Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government. 

Audible has a history of recording and distributing public documents. This includes The 9/11 Commission Report, The Starr Report, and Pope Francis' encyclical letter on climate change and inequality, Encyclical Letter Laudato Si' of the Holy Father Francis: On Care for Our Common Home

Editorial notes: This audio recording identifies the sections of The Mueller Report that have been redacted by the Office of the Attorney General. When the narrators reach a section of the report that has been redacted, they will give one of the four reasons for a redaction that is specified in the report. Those reasons are the following: Grand Jury, Harm to Ongoing Matter, Investigative Technique, Personal Privacy. To aid the listener’s comprehension of the report, we have recorded footnotes that contain secondary pieces of information, which provide additional context to the events described. Finally, references to US Code, federal regulations, court cases and other legal and technical documents have been adjusted for brevity and listener clarity. We are providing a downloadable PDF for a full and complete reference. This file can be accessed in your Library section along with the audio.    

Please note: Audible's version of The Mueller Report is free. If subsequent versions of this report are released, Audible will make every effort to provide updates.

Double Checked Accuracy

I downloaded the pdf of this report from the Justice Dept. and read many of the chapters while listening to this audio version. All that I checked is 100% accurate to the text. The reader did a great job without imparting bias. This is an important read or listen and highlights the need to minimize and remove individual, international, and private interest money and subversive agenda from all government.

Everyone should hear this ...

A little dry at first until I got use to how it read, then found I would listen when ever I could. Answer your own questions and make your own decisions.

Thank you!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for this!
My 78yo mother is very involved in politics. I spent part of the weekend reading this report to her.. she wants to know every detail of the investigation. She struggles reading on her own due to her macular degeneration. I can’t wait to get this audible version to her! She is very independent and will love the ability to digest it on her own!
We all deserve to know the truth!

Thanks for Recognizing that We've Already Paid

With the exception of those who evade taxation, all Americans have already paid for the Mueller Report. I think most readers will agree that we got our money's worth. Information gives us the power to ensure that our society remains free and our officials continue to work for us. Thanks to Mueller's team for constructing a document that is accessible to every reader regardless of background. Thanks to Audible for your public service.

Every American should read/listen to this!

I never would have guessed that I would make it through listening to a portion of The Mueller Report, let alone the entire 19 hours! But, thanks to the 3 readers, who actually had great voices to listen to, I not only completed the report but I was interested and learned a lot. The fact that Audible put this together, in such a professional way, and made it available FREE OF CHARGE — now that is Democracy! I highly recommend listening to this and think it should be required for all Americans (including Trump, his cabinet and all members of the Senate and Congress).

A real eye opener

Love him or hate him this report lays bare all the creepy underbelly of a morally corrupt campaign. Trump's purposeful insistence of plausible denial. The body of evidence if taken as a whole leaves no doubt of obstructive behaviour. The reasons for not charging certain campaign members, where a crime is obvious, but technicalities mean charging impossible. Very enlightening about what Congress has the power to investigate. Overall a very concise informative document.

Fact is stranger than fiction

I have been listening to the opening chapters of the Mueller Report with increasing incredulity. I am old enough to remember United States President Richard Nixon and the long "saga" (in the late 1960s & early 1970s) of the equally astonishing and equally incredible Watergate Scandal.
.As in the Watergate Scandal, the "Wikileaks" Scandal is like a Russian Matyoshka doll - i.e. with a doll inside another doll inside another doll, etc.. There were initial allegations - provable or non-provable! - about the activities of the Russian Government & (provable or non-provable) allegations about collusion by Trump Campaign workers with the Russians. The second "doll" consists of allegations that (after the Presidential Election) Mr Trump attempted to "pervert the course of justice" (i.e. by sacking one individual & attempting to influence that individual's successor against the Mueller Investigation & repeatedly making statements attempting to undermine the credibility of Robert Mueller)
This is similar to the way that Watergate unfolded - first the break-in at the Watergate building; then President Nixon's cover-up; then his cover-up of the first cover-up; and this cover-up of the previous two cover-ups and so on and so forth. And similarly Nixon and his associates - before and after the Presidential Election - repeatedly lied & "perverted the course of justice".

Just the Facts mama.

Just the Facts and nothing but the Facts. How can one person be so shady and know nothing or can't recall what's going on around them! Useful idiot or fellow traveller. Which ever is true he's a low down dirty dog and unfit for the job he holds now and Mueller made that crystal clear in this report.

Doesn't end well

a bit like Game of Thrones.. power, loyalty, mistrust, duty, corruption, with (some) interesting characters
but I expected more after waiting 2 years for this and ends on a cliffhanger- Can't wait to read about what happens next.

The straight arrow hit it fair and square.

It took me a while to listen to every word of this report, introductions, references, glossary and everything. I limited my listening to the commute to/from work, and I'm glad I did. It gave me a chance to really digest the smallish nuggets of info I heard each time. A few things are crystal clear from this report:

1. Robert Mueller is 100% straight arrow. I know we've all heard it being said by press, democrats and republicans alike (well, until the republicans decided to turn on Mueller late last year. The report shows that Mueller took great care to stay away from issues like "following the money" etc. I can see why. Firstly, it isn't needed. The limited scope of the investigation he was tasked with by Rod Rosenstein is more than enough to show over a 100 unnaturally close connections between the Trump Campaign (plus family, friends and business acquaintances) and the Russian oligarch system. Secondly, following the money could give the appearance of "fishing", or deliberately discomforting the Trumps just for the sake of it. It's obvious from how the report is written that Mueller is not a fisherman (in the investigative sense), nor is he willing to backfill a preconceived conclusion. A lot can be gleaned about the man behind this report by the report itself.

2. As the previous point states, the degree of Russian involvement in the Trump campaign, family activities, friendships and business interests is really quite unusual. Unless there is a similar closeness between the Trump campaign et. al and Italy, Cuba or Norway, it simply isn't sufficient to conclude that something fishy WASN'T going on.

3. The obstruction of justice section is relatively brief compared to the Russian interference section. Mueller writes like a storyteller, and that makes the events contained in this section very easy to understand. I would recommend readers or listeners find the obstruction section first (somewhere around Chapter 158 I think) and digest this section first. It really is all you need to know about Donald Trump the man (and President). This section paints a striking picture of a man who isn't really interested in serving his country, "making America great" or seeking retribution on behalf of the forgotten man. He is solely interested in his own wellbeing, his profits, his safety, his public image, his wishes and wants. If push came to shove, I would not be surprised after digesting this report, if Donald Trump were to turn on even his beloved eldest daughter if it made his life a bit easier. Mueller spells out for all of us to see that America is in big trouble with Trump in charge. Although, to be frank I'm not convinced that Trump is in charge. The report appears to describe a man who is consumed with himself, while others manoeuvre around him to implement the America they want. Even scarier.

I'm glad I took the time to listen to this audio of the report. I think I got more out of it than I would have if I tried to read the paper version. I highly recommend every American make a genuine effort to find out what Mueller wrote, and if nothing else, make a point of knowing what Mueller wrote about Obstruction.

An invaluable recording of an important source

I'm very grateful to the producers for making this reading of the report available for free to the public. I know I most likely wouldn't have read the report in text, so it's very good to have an accessible audio version. The narration here is standard and probably could be considered dry, but you can't really expect much better from what amounts to a minimally-edited legal document.

As regarding the report itself, I think we got no more than what we could have expected from Robert Mueller. Mueller has a history of sticking very closely to his brief, even when doing so surprises and/or disappoints his audience (see the reaction to his investigation for the NFL of the Ray Rice domestic violence incident) so it's really not surprising at all that his investigation of the president fell short of the expectations of some. Mueller stayed very precisely within the guidelines of the Justice Department regarding the indictability of a sitting president, and that caused the strange tightrope-walk of the report, officially declining to make a prosecution decision regarding the president but also not exonerating him. It is a very unusual decision that runs counter to a lot of traditionally-understood prosecutorial responsibilities, but this situation is also a very unusual one, exposing a tangle of unresolved, untested constitutional issues regarding the president's responsibilities and liabilities, and the separation of powers between the three branches of government. America has a lot of reckoning to do over the coming years about the role it wants its chief executive to play, and if this report won't fully resolve its current predicament, it will at least be an invaluable document to guide the efforts of future reformers.
