Hillary Clinton Reads Out Loud From the Redacted Mueller Report—and It’s Oddly Satisfying

“Secretary Clinton, feel it. Feel it. Imagine, like, you have a history with this.”

In a new video promoting Jordan Klepper’s new Comedy Central show, the comedian gets Hillary Clinton to read out loud from the redacted Mueller report—and there’s something weirdly satisfying about it.

While sitting down with both Hillary and Bill Clinton, Klepper finds a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to get Hillary to record an audiobook of the 400-page report. “Gosh, I would definitely contribute to that,” she said, joking that she’d need a lot of lozenges. 

After a couple of practice runs, with some notes from Klepper, Clinton nailed the reading, which is set to string instruments to give it an added dose of gravitas. Her reading starts at 3:20 below—be sure to stick around for her dramatization of President Trump’s response when he found out Robert Mueller had been appointed special counsel: “Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m fucked.”

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
