We've published the Mueller Papers
Over the last year and a half, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been slowly compiling a written record of his investigation into President Trump and foreign interference in the 2016 election. He’s been posting results from the inquiry along the way, as sentencing memos, indictments, and other filings with federal courts. Believe it or not, they make gripping reading. So at Strong Arm Press we’ve taken those public documents and turned them into a book. The ebook is out now, and the paperback will be available later this week. You can get the ebook here
As Chad Day and Eric Tucker of The Associated Press have written, "Mueller has spoken loudly, if indirectly, in court - indictment by indictment, guilty plea by guilty plea. In doing so, he tracked an elaborate Russian operation that injected chaos into a U.S. presidential election and tried to help Trump win the White House. He followed a GOP campaign that embraced the Kremlin's help and championed stolen material to hurt a political foe. And ultimately, he revealed layers of lies, deception, self-enrichment and hubris that followed. Woven through thousands of court papers, the special counsel has made his public report."
The filings, Jeffrey Toobin wrote in the New Yorker, have an almost novelistic quality. "Mueller's legal filings, which include indictments and sentencing memorandums, have created an almost novelistic narrative, featuring rich portraits of the political and personal motivations of a large cast of characters," observed Toobin, The New Yorker's legal affairs correspondent.
Meanwhile, with Alex Emmons, I have a story out on a new anti-war group, which is doing something unique in the movement: Getting deeply involved in the political process. For decades, peace groups stuck mostly to organizing marches, but Common Defense, a group of young veterans, works to elect or oust politicians, and last week was lobbying on Capitol Hill. Alex and I followed them around, as they persuaded eight House and Senate members (including independent Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and AOC) to pledge to end America’s “Forever Wars.”
And I have a look at Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s approach to dealing with the Working Families Party now that it helped Democrats take over the Senate: destroy it. Cuomo is something. Story is here.
