We summarized every single section of the Mueller report so you don’t have to

Published Last updated This article is more than 2 years old.

US attorney general William Barr released special counsel Robert Mueller’s long-awaited report on April 18. It details his team’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.

The document, however, isn’t designed for easy consumption. It’s 448-pages long and broken into two volumes of dozens of chapters and sections each. It was released as a series of images, rather than as text. More than a quarter of the pages, 119 to be exact, contain 953 redactions in total. Information that Barr determined could compromise ongoing investigations, contain secret grand jury material, expose secret law enforcement techniques or infringe on a person’s privacy, were redacted.

Quartz went through every page, summarized the relevant sections and annotated the redactions. After a two-year wait here’s a section-by-section look of what it says:
