Comedian Jordan Klepper on Saturday posted an interview with Bill and Hillary Clinton during which the former Secretary of State turned Democratic presidential candidate read experts from special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, and suggested a crowdfunding page should be started to send Attorney General William Barr back to law school.

In the video, Klepper asks the Clintons to help him decide which crowdfunding campaigns he should support, eventually landing on one trying to recruit Hillary Clinton to record an audiobook of the Mueller report.

As she reads the segment where Mueller writes that Russia “perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the campaign it would benefit electorally,” Klepper asks Hillary to repeat the reading, with feeling.

“Imagine like, you have a history with it,” Klepper suggests.

Earlier in the video, Klepper asks if he should support a crowdfunding campaign to send a random guy to a law class to impeach Trump.

After the Clintons shoot down the idea, Klepper protests that “this is a guy who just wants to take a few classes to attempt to impeach Donald Trump.”

“Yeah, but he’s not in a position to do that,” Hillary Clinton responds.

“We gotta really digest what’s in the Mueller report, because we know what the attorney general said about it is not true,” Bill Clinton adds.

“He should go to law school,” Hillary Clinton offers, “… for continuing legal education.”

It’s not just the House Select Committee on January 6 that wants a better look at many of those involved in Donald Trump’s scheme to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Thanks to their wide-ranging activities in many states, investigations are going on at the local, state, and federal level into actions that Trump’s team took in attempting to reverse the will of the American people.

No state may have borne more of Trump’s focused fury than Georgia. President Joe Biden carried the state by over 12,500 votes, making it second to Arizona when it comes to the the narrowest margin of victory. This was far outside the realm of possible change that might be addressed by a recount, but Georgia conducted a recount anyway. When that didn’t make things any better for Trump, he requested that Georgia count a third time, which it did. Trump still lost, and by a bigger number than ever.

A Republican House candidate for a competitive seat in northwest Ohio said Monday that mass shootings are an acceptable price to pay for his right to own guns.

"I don't care if countries in Europe have less shootings because they don't have guns. I care about THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and OUR 2nd Amendment Rights," Republican J.R. Majewski tweeted Monday evening. "I think Americans stopped caring what Europe thought of our country in 1776."
