Fox News anchor and one of the resident anti-President Donald Trump commentators, Shepard Smith, wants everyone to read the Mueller report.
The anchor, derided by many Fox News watchers, continued to promote the narrative that the Mueller report shows crimes committed by the president, The Hill reported.
“Remember, in his 400-plus page report that everyone in America should read, everyone, Robert Mueller laid out 10 instances of apparent obstruction of justice, criminal obstruction of justice, potentially, by President Trump,” he said.
“The special counsel did not exonerate the president,” Smith said on his show on Tuesday to the anger of many fans of the president.
Fox News anchor Shep Smith told viewers Tuesday that “everyone in America” should read special counsel Robert Mueller’s report in full.
Mueller last month in his first public statement since the completion of his report said if his office “had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so.”
The special counsel pointed to current Department of Justice guidance that says a sitting president cannot be indicted, but noted in his report that Congress has the authority to conduct obstruction investigations.
Smith’s comments on the report Tuesday came as he was discussing the showdown between the Justice Department and House Democrats as the chamber voted along party lines to hold former White House counsel Don McGahn and Attorney General William Barr in “civil contempt” for not complying with congressional subpoenas.

Shep Smith is right. Everyone should read the Mueller Report.
If you don’t have time to read the full Report, you can just read the summaries in the Report. And if you don’t have time to do that, you can read the tweets of @GOP Rep @justinamash.#WednesdayWisdom https://t.co/4Vl9beNMpr

Shep Smith I did read the Mueller report and like you I came to the conclusion that the report did not exonerate the president. In fact I believe the report did just the opposite.

Shep Smith encourages FOX viewers to read the Mueller report, and learns that when they scream “RINO” it also stands for “Reading Is Not Optional.”

I’ve read it, cover to cover. Barr’s lying even more incredible once you’ve read it.
