Mueller report hits No. 1 on New York Times best-seller list

A bound copy of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report debuted at No. 1 on The New York Times’s best-seller list for paperback nonfiction.

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

Several versions of the report are for sale, including one produced by The Washington Post and Scribner with annotations by the newspaper’s editors and reporters, which topped sales last week. Skyhorse Publishing’s edition, with a forward by attorney Alan Dershowitz, was at No. 11.

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 Barr 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.
