About

I love this country. I hate what we are becoming. I have been a educator my whole life. I felt a compelling need to do something. I read comic books and graphic novels. I asked myself "Why not do a comic book of the story behind The Mueller Report?" It would be accessible to lots more people, enjoyable to read, and educate more people about this historic moment. And so ...

My guess is that you, like most Americans, have neither read the Mueller Report nor watched the hearings. Even if you did, you may not understand how scary this moment in our history has become. I felt the need to get the word (and pictures) out.

I wanted to give as many people as we can reach a simple and clear understanding of what is happening. Not just what but who,why, when and where. An inside look at one of the most amazing moments America is living through.

The story is simple. In 2016 Russian hackers tried to "undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency." They succeeded. Donald J.Trump win lost the popular election by 3 million votes and squeaked out 79,646 votes in three states to win the Electoral College. Those states were the most heavily impacted by the hackers social media campaigns. The Russians effectively elected the 45th President of the United States.

Operation "Crossfire Hurricane" was started to look into the hacking during the Trump campaign well before he was elected. The conspiracy part of the report was being investigated. Trump desperately needed to believe that he won the  election without any help, and tried on 10 separate occasions to obstruct the investigation. A Special Counsel Investigation, led by Robert Mueller, was started in May 2017. Trump, the GOP, even the Attorney General Barr of the Department of Justice tried to stop the investigation.

The results, now called The Mueller Report, is that the conspiracy charge - incorrectly labeled "collusion" - is inconclusive and there are 10 clear instances of obstruction of justice. Anyone but a sitting president would have been indicted.

This is that story. In the form of an easy-to-read and understand comic book and video available online it will provide another way for more people to learn why the Mueller Report is so important to the future. 

Risks and challenges

We have the team in place - the writer (me), the illustrator (Samuel Bermudez), and a team of journalists, lawyers and other smart folks to check the accuracy of the work. The project has been carefully budgeted to be completed. Distribution channels will be social media and online websites by anyone who wants to show the PDF or the MPG4.

The risk is that no one will really care. That's not enough of a risk for me not to try.
