The report, which was made available for free online, is also No. 1 on the paper’s combined print and e-book list.

The list covers the week ending April 27, the first full week since the report became available April 18.

Three versions of Mueller’s findings also hit the top of Amazon’s best-seller list by April 19, and the Scribner edition has remained at or near the top in the meantime, returning to the online retail giant’s No. 1 spot as of Wednesday, according to CNN.

The report dominated the news again over the past week amid revelations that Mueller, in a March 27 letter, said Attorney General William BarrWilliam Pelham BarrTrump shifting after threat to deploy troops: report The Hill's Morning Report - Protesters' defiance met with calls to listen GOP senators dodge on treatment of White House protesters MORE had omitted vital context when he issued a four-page summary of Mueller’s findings to Congress ahead of the report's release.

“This threatens to undermine a central purpose for which the Department appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the outcome of the investigations,” Mueller wrote.

Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Barr told the panel he found Mueller’s letter “snitty” and wished Mueller had communicated his concerns by phone.
