Live, from a tiny parlor in the Capitol, House Democrats are spending the entire day reading aloud nearly 400 pages of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
The political stunt is likely to stretch into the early hours of Friday.
Democratic Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon of Pennsylvania said “The American people need to hear from the report itself,” adding, “summaries won’t do.”
More than two dozen lawmakers will take time from their day to read the entire report, which has been made available to anyone in the public to read for weeks.
Mueller did not find any evidence that President Donald Trump conspired with the Russians to tip the 2016 election. He also found insufficient evidence to charge Trump with obstructed justice.
The attempt to publicize Mueller’s report comes amid uncertainty about whether he will testify to Congress. Democrats have said they are hopeful Mueller will appear, but are willing to subpoena him if necessary.
