While President Trump was unveiling his updated plan to curb illegal immigration, House Democrats were reading, and reading, and reading. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler led colleagues in reciting the 400-page Robert Mueller report out loud - in its entirety.

House Judiciary Committee Vice Chairwoman Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) explained to the Washington Post why she and her colleagues felt called to the task.

“The Mueller report was a mandate from the Department of Justice that there be an investigation into these very troubling aspects about what was happening in our government,” Scanlon said. “So you know, it may be inconvenient, it may be time-consuming, but it’s what we have to do.”

So, they were there until late at night. Those poor staffers.

Presumably, they read aloud the parts where the special counsel concluded that President Trump did not collude with Russia in 2016?

Republicans aware of the Democrats' read along rolled their eyes and called it a charade.

If you missed a minute of the read, don't worry.  Rep. Scanlon told the WaPo that the recording of it would be made into an audiobook.
