Here’s a Searchable Version of the Redacted Mueller Report

Fun awaits.

Today’s release of the Mueller report, redacted by the US Justice Department, was followed for many by the sinking realization that the document was both 448 pages long and completely unsearchable—meaning that we’d have to actually read the whole thing.

We have solved both problems for you with an OCRed, text searchable version of the Mueller Report in PDF hosted on our blisteringly fast Washingtonian server farm. Get it here:


(And no, the redactions were not removable in PDF editing software.)
