In a new video released Saturday, Hillary Clinton appears and reads aloud portions of a redacted version of the expansive Mueller report on Russian interference, featuring all sorts of Trump quotes that will likely go down in history.
Clinton, alongside her husband, former President Bill Clinton, can be seen in the video with Comedy Central’s Jordan Klepper as he announces that they are there to “advise him on what crowdfunding campaigns he should support.” Klepper said he got the idea for this when he saw one particular crowdfunding campaign collect more than $2 million for a group of historically black churches in Louisiana that were burned earlier this month in a suspected crime spree.
In the video, which was first aired on Saturday night at the Washington D.C. stop on the power couple’s speaking tour, the three of them together go over various GoFundMe campaigns and Klepper discovers that one of those campaigns is trying to get Ms. Clinton involved in a unique way. Klepper reads the description, saying,”It’s simple, I’m raising money to hire Hillary Clinton to record an audiobook of the Mueller report.” He then adds that he just happens to have a copy of the 400+ page report with him. “Gosh, I would definitely contribute to that,” Clinton said. “It would take a long time to record that… It would take lots and lots of lozenges.” Oh, this is going to be good.
Clinton plays along happily, “Alright, let me start it. I’ll be happy to — sure,” Clinton enthusiastically replies. As she begins to read straight from the report, music begins to waft in the background, “The investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency.” Klepper then cuts in, prompting Clinton, “like you mean it” and “imagine, like, you have a history with this.”
Clinton continues reading directly from the report describing the moment President Trump learned of Mueller’s appointment to Special Counsel: “The President slumped back in his chair and said ‘Oh my god, this is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I’m f—ed.'”
Klepper turns to Bill Clinton and says, “What do you think?” and Clinton nods and replies, “I’d listen to that audiobook.”
They then continue searching through the GoFundMe campaigns and stop at one person who is trying to raise money in order to afford to “take a law class to impeach Donald Trump,” and the Clintons advise Klepper not to back that one. They suggest that Attorney General Willam Barr should actually be the one to go to law school, with Bill Clinton saying, “If somebody wanted to fund his continuing legal education, I would be for that.”
