Amazon: Mueller report already No. 1

Amazon: Mueller report already No. 1 Anticipation has pushed the Thursday release of Robert Mueller’s redacted report on the 2016 election clearing President Trump of colluding with Russia to several Amazon No. 1 rankings. One of the several versions being independently published has hit the top in Amazon's categories of “Corruption & Misconduct in Politics,” “Espionage True Accounts,” and “Intelligence & Espionage.” The Skyhorse paperback and Kindle version are the simplest of the those heading to press the minute the report is released.

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Monday that he plans to "skim over" the parts of the redacted Mueller report discussing President Trump's relationship with Russia because he believes the part relating to whether Trump obstructed justice will be the more interesting section.

It was announced Monday that a redacted version of the full 400-page investigation by Robert Mueller is set to be made public on Thursday.

Mueller Report Book Editions Shoot to Top of Best-Seller Lists at Amazon, Barnes & Noble Robert Mueller is now a best-selling author. Book publishers’ forthcoming editions of the special counsel’s report zoomed to the top of the Amazon’s and Barnes & Noble’s lists of book best-sellers Friday. That comes a day after the report was publicly released, culminating the nearly two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and the involvement of Donald Trump and his associates. The redacted 448-page report is available for free as a PDF from the U.S. Department of Justice’s website at at this link.

Dershowitz said during an appearance on "America's Newsroom" that he believes any redactions made by Attorney General William Barr in the new report will be "few and far between," but are necessary to maintain the privacy of individuals in the investigation who are not facing criminal charges.

"I'm going to skim quickly the Russian matter because I will conclude probably there is no evidence there," Dershowitz said.

Ex-Nixon White House counsel: Mueller report 'more damning' than Watergate

Ex-Nixon White House counsel: Mueller report 'more damning' than Watergate John Dean, the former White House counsel for President Nixon, said Thursday that special counsel Robert Mueller's report was "more damning" than the Watergate report. "I looked on my shelf for the Senate Watergate Committee report, I looked at the Iran Contra report. I also looked at the Ken Starr report," Dean said on CNN's "The Lead." "In 400 words, this report from the special counsel is more damning than all those reports abou t a President, this is really a devastating report." Former WH counsel John Dean: "I looked on my shelf for the Senate Watergate Committee report, I looked at the Iran Contra report. I also looked at the Ken Starr report ...

"The most interesting thing will be to look at obstruction of justice," he added. "The obstruction case is based largely on what the president said openly in tweets and press conferences. I think we'll see a different analysis of the law as to whether a president can commit obstruction of justice if he fires somebody like (former FBI director James) Comey, who he is entitled to fire," Dershowitz added.

ROGER STONE TO JUDGE: LET MY LAWYERS SEE THE FULL MUELLER REPORT

The professor said there was rightful outrage when Comey revealed details about the investigation into Hillary Clinton, despite there being no indictments, because it was not the role of the prosecutor to express his or her personal opinions about the situation. However, in the case of Mueller's report, he says, people want to hear "everything about everybody."

"The real question is why do we have a double standard?" Dershowitz asked.  "Why were we furious, I was, when Comey went after Hillary Clinton beyond saying we're not going to indict her and now we want to hear everything about everybody who was in the [Mueller] report even though they haven't been indicted. Where does that double standard come from?"

With Mueller report looming, Trump renews calls to 'investigate the investigators'.
Trump and his allies have called for the Justice Department to investigate the origins of the Russia probe. President Donald Trump kept up his calls for investigations into his political opponents on Monday, claiming in anticipation of the expected release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report that it was actually Democrats and “dirty cops” who were guilty of collusion and obstruction of justice rather than himself. “Mueller, and the A.G. based on Mueller findings (and great intelligence), have already ruled No Collusion, No Obstruction,” he wrote in a tweet.
