EP. 0: “Introducing The Mueller Report: A Reading“
Welcome! Here’s what you can expect from this podcast.
Ep. 1: “Introduction to Volume I”
In this section of the report, Special Counsel Mueller lays out the events leading to which initiated his appointment and the broad outlines of the investigation.
Ep. 2: “Executive Summary to Volume I”
This Executive Summary lays out a summary of the contents of Volume I of the Report, which covers the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The Summary is divided into sections which cover (1) the Russian Social Media Campaign, (2) the Russian Hacking Operations, (3) Russian contacts with the Trump campaign, and the Special Counsel’s charging decisions.
Ep. 3: “I. The Special Counsel’s Investigation”
Section I of the report recounts the genesis of the investigation, the appointment of Robert Mueller by Deputy Attorney General (then Acting Attorney General for the Russia Investigation) Rod Rosentein, the scope of Mueller’s mandate, and details the structure and procedures of the Office of the Special Counsel.
Ep. 4: “II. Russian ‘Active Measures’ Social Media Campaign”
This section of Volume I begins to detail the efforts of the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election—efforts that date back as far as 2014. This section contains a significant number of redactions, both of the text itself and of many of its more than 100 footnotes, but I will inform listeners of the reason for each redaction and narrate any available footnote text that is substantive.
