A number of theater companies in New York are to read the US Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his 22-month investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible obstruction of justice by the sitting president Donald Trump. The report said that there was no collusion between Trump and Russia, but did not determine whether or not the president obstructed justice.
According to media reports, the 24-hour reading session called “Filibustered and Unfiltered: America Reads the Mueller Report” will take place on Saturday evening at The Arc, Long Island City, Queens.
The main purpose of the event is to give people an opportunity to make their own judgments. Jackson Gay, director, said that “it’s not meant to be a performance. It’s meant to be a bunch of people coming together and finding their voice. We shouldn’t just sit back on our couches and let other people tell us what to think.”
“It’s really just about our responsibility as American citizens to read this thing that we paid for,” Gay added.
To attend an event one would have to get a ticket, which will start at $10. All proceeds, that are supposed to cover the actual cost of the event, will go to immigrant rights groups RAICES Texas and CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project, as reported by The Hill.
