I thought this might be of interest to many in blog land. I spent many hours going through the entire Mueller report and then took the parts of volume 2 (since volume 1 is less important given the “no collusion” judgment) and condensed it down to a 30 minute read.
It’s not a summary, it’s the actual text from the original report, just cut down to a more digestible size. But it still captures the overall narrative of the original report. If you’re someone that doesn’t have time to read the whole report, reading this will give you all the important stuff (in my opinion) for a much smaller cost of your time.
I think — no matter your view point on this — we should all go to the source rather than rely on media summaries, which these days are so incredibly biased that they actually make you less knowledgeable at times.
P.S. if you find typos, post them here please and I’ll fix them. Trying to transcribe so much was hard and I have no skill with it. I wish I could have just cut and pasted the text, but there was no available text version I could find.

How crazy is this election cycle? I suppose it wouldn’t be a real election year if our news feeds weren’t inundated with muckraking, scandals, and political plot twists. Most days, I don’t know whether to move to Canada, or sit back and watch with a bucket of popcorn on my lap as if it were only another crude reality TV show.
But there is one thing I like about this election, and that is how we Mormons have successfully distinguished ourselves by refusing to ally with Donald Trump. It was with no small amount of pride that I first heard the phrase, “Trump’s Mormon Problem.” In the short time since the famous “Trump Tapes” have been made public, Trump’s Mormon Problem has only intensified as top LDS Republican leaders have rescinded their endorsements.
