Note to teachers: The main article includes a curse said by the president.
Before reading the article:
On March 22, the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, submitted his report to the Justice Department, ending a 22-month investigation into Russian efforts to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
Two days later, Attorney General William P. Barr sent Congress a four-page summary of Mr. Mueller’s findings and then released them publicly. According to Mr. Barr’s summary, the investigation found no evidence that President Trump or any of his aides coordinated with the Russian government’s 2016 election interference.
On Thursday, Mr. Barr released the full report — with some redactions.
Set a stopwatch to five minutes (or longer if you have more interest or patience) and scroll through the 448-page report until the timer goes off. Try to get a sense of what this document looks like; what information it contains; what the redactions look like; and any information you can gather while skimming.
Then, make two separate lists addressing these questions:
• What do you notice? • What do you wonder?
Now, read the article, “The Mueller Report Is 448 Pages Long. You Need to Know These 7 Key Things.” Then answer the following questions:
1. According to the report, what are two examples of times the president tried to sabotage the Mueller investigation? How did his staff prevent him from doing so?
2. According to the report, what are two examples of times that President Trump lied or tried to get his staff to lie about matters related to the Mueller investigation?
3. The authors write:
The president has spent the past two years denouncing the news media. He has repeatedly accused reporters of making up sources to destroy his presidency. The report, though, shows not only that some of the most unflattering stories about Mr. Trump were accurate, but also that White House officials knew that was the case even as they heaped criticism on journalists.
According to the Mueller report, what are two examples of times the president denounced the news media even though White House officials knew the news stories were accurate?
4. On page 220, the report explores the question of whether the president committed an obstruction-of-justice offense:
The evidence we obtained about the President’s actions and intent presents difficult issues that would need to be resolved if we were making a traditional prosecutorial judgment. At the same time, if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment. Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.
What does that conclusion mean? What does the Mueller report say about whether the president committed obstruction of justice?
5. What did the Mueller investigation uncover about Russian interference in the 2016 election?
6. The analysis ends with the following three paragraphs:
Prosecutors describe a president who was preoccupied with ending a federal investigation, a White House that repeatedly told misleading and changing stories, and a presidential campaign that was in repeated contact with Russian officials for reasons that are not always clear.
Even though prosecutors concluded that didn’t amount to provably criminal conduct, the report is astounding in its sweep. Yet it is also a reminder of how much the public has learned over the past two years about Mr. Trump’s conduct.
If the American public or members of Congress were learning these things for the first time, the political fallout would normally be devastating. The consequences of the report remain to be seen, but if people are not surprised or shocked by the revelations, then Mr. Trump may have benefited by the steady drip of news stories he has so loudly criticized.
What point are the authors making? Do you agree?
Finally, tell us more about what you think:
What is your reaction to the seven takeaways that Matt Apuzzo and Adam Goldman, two Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters, make in the article?
Do you think the release of the full, but redacted, report will change anyone’s minds about President Trump and his behavior as a candidate or as president? Did it change your mind at all? Explain.
Not everyone agrees with Mr. Apuzzo and Mr. Goldman that the report paints “a deeply unflattering picture of President Trump.” Christopher Buskirk writes the following in this Op-Ed piece:
The American political and media elites that spent the first two years of the Trump administration promoting the Russian collusion hoax have some explaining to do. And not merely explaining: They owe the president an apology.
As Attorney General William Barr said on Thursday before releasing the Mueller report, “After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the special counsel confirmed that the Russian government sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes.”
And Joseph diGenova at Fox News writes:
While the Democrats continue to cling to the fantasy that evidence of collusion really is lurking somewhere in the dark recesses of the Mueller report, the report itself makes it clearer than ever what any unbiased observer of the Russia story has been able to see for more than a year: Robert Mueller knew very early on in his investigation that there was no collusion.
Do you agree with Mr. Buskirk and Mr. diGenova that the report exonerates Mr. Trump? Do you think the American political and media elites “owe the president an apology?” Why, or why not?
Do you think Congress should continue to investigate the issues raised in the Mueller report, or do you think everyone should move on now that the report has been released?
