Hillary Clinton Reads Out Loud From the Redacted Mueller Report—and It’s Oddly Satisfying

“Secretary Clinton, feel it. Feel it. Imagine, like, you have a history with this.”

In a new video promoting Jordan Klepper’s new Comedy Central show, the comedian gets Hillary Clinton to read out loud from the redacted Mueller report—and there’s something weirdly satisfying about it.

While sitting down with both Hillary and Bill Clinton, Klepper finds a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to get Hillary to record an audiobook of the 400-page report. “Gosh, I would definitely contribute to that,” she said, joking that she’d need a lot of lozenges. 

After a couple of practice runs, with some notes from Klepper, Clinton nailed the reading, which is set to string instruments to give it an added dose of gravitas. Her reading starts at 3:20 below—be sure to stick around for her dramatization of President Trump’s response when he found out Robert Mueller had been appointed special counsel: “Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m fucked.”


In 2014, before Donald Trump announced his run for president, we knew we had to do something different to address the fundamental challenge facing journalism: how hard-hitting reporting that can hold the powerful accountable can survive as the bottom falls out of the news business.

Being a nonprofit, we started planning The Moment for Mother Jones: A special campaign to raise $25 million for key investments to make Mother Jones the strongest watchdog it can be. Five years later, readers have stepped up and contributed an astonishing $23 million in gifts and future pledges. This is an incredible statement from the Mother Jones community in the face of the huge threats—both economic and political—against the free press.

Read more about The Moment and see what we've been able to accomplish thanks to readers' incredible generosity so far, and please join them today. Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $500,000 total, during this critical moment for journalism.
