The former secretary of State tweeted Monday:


Mark Hamill, Alyssa Milano, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Annette Bening, Sigourney Weaver, Alfre Woodard and Zachary Quinto are just some of the stars poised to appear Monday in New York at a reading of “The Investigation: A Search For The Truth in 10 Acts.”

The play, which organizers say is “ripped from the pages” of special counsel Mueller’s report on his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 White House race, is written by Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan.

The one-night-only performance, which is being live-streamed, is being put on by LawWorks, an organization that says it aims to educate the public “on the importance of the rule of law, the role of the special counsel in the justice system, and the integrity of our judicial institutions."

“Everything Trump said today is simply wrong, end of story,” Kerry said in a May interview with CNN.

“He's wrong about the facts, wrong about the law, and sadly he's been wrong about how to use diplomacy to keep America safe,” Kerry said of Trump.
