Trump-Bashing Celebrities Want You To Read The Mueller Report

"If you're listening, we will hold you accountable," Robert De Niro, Martin Sheen and Stephen King say in a new video produced by Rob Reiner.

Special counsel Robert Mueller collected the “most damning evidence ever compiled against a sitting U.S. president,” yet “virtually no one has read” his report, claims a dramatic new video featuring Trump-bashing celebrities Robert De Niro, Martin Sheen, Stephen King and Laurence Fishburne.

Then, Attorney General William Barr “lied about its contents,” says the “Now This” video produced by Rob Reiner, which also includes George TakeiSophia BushKendrick Sampson and Christine Lahti.

The video, posted Thursday, veers from obstruction of justice issues raised in the Mueller report and focuses instead on “collusion,” and five compelling examples presented by the special counsel. 

Trump “colluded with Russia and compromised our democracy,” Fishburne declares.

The Russian government interfered in our presidential election in “sweeping and systematic fashion,” the video states, quoting directly from the Mueller report. “They hacked emails, spread lies on social media ... all as part of a massive covert operation to help Donald Trump become president.” The Trump campaign had “over 200 contracts with Russian operatives.” The campaign never reported any of them.

“All this is in the report,” says Sheen. “Please, just read it for yourself.”

Trump last week said he wouldn’t hesitate to accept information on a campaign rival from a foreign country for the next election.

The video concludes, with everyone chiming in: “Donald Trump, if you are listening, on behalf of the American people, we will hold you accountable because no one ... is above the law.”
