Cory Booker helpfully put out a searchable PDF of the report (after several news outlets had already done so) and a statement saying basically nothing new.


Bernie Sanders called for Congress to continue investigating, but didn’t go so far as to mention impeachment:


Kamala Harris called for Mueller to testify before Congress and criticized the attorney general but didn’t go much further:
