We Still Know Almost Nothing About the Mueller Report

This is probably pointless, but I’d like remind everyone that we know precisely one (1) thing about the Mueller report:

Mueller did not find sufficient evidence to think he could convict Trump or his campaign staff of direct criminal collusion with Russia’s social media and hacking operations.

That’s it. There’s obviously far more than this in the full report, which we’re (so far) not being allowed to see. Until we are, everyone on all sides would be well advised to avoid making sweeping statements about what we know. The truth is that we barely know anything more today than we did a week ago. It’s likely there’s a reason for that.


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
