As He Chairs A Hearing On Mueller Report, Graham Admits He Hasn’t Read Whole Thing

As he opened a hearing with Attorney General William Barr about the attorney general’s handling of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) admitted that he hadn’t read the full Mueller report yet.

“Here is the good news. Here is the Mueller report,” Graham said during his opening statement. “You can read it for yourself. It’s about 400 and something pages. Can’t say I’ve read it all, but I’ve read most of it. There’s an unredacted version over in the classified section of the Senate, a room where you can go look at the unredacted version. I did that and found it not to change anything in terms of an outcome.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
