NM-SEN: Senate candidate Maggie Toulouse Oliver reads Mueller report aloud from kitchen

SANTA FE, N.M. ó A Democratic contender for U.S. Senate in New Mexico staged a live-broadcast reading on social media Monday of special counsel Robert Muellerís report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, highlighting her support for immediate impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

In a social media feed from her home kitchen table, New Mexico Secretary of State and Senate candidate State Maggie Toulouse Oliver read from a bound paperback version of the report, in anticipation of Muellerís scheduled testimony this week before Congress.

Rival Senate candidate and Congressman Ben Ray LujŠn has stood by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in resisting attempts to begin impeachment before additional evidence is collected. Three Democrats are jockeying for the Senate nomination in 2020 as Sen. Tom Udall retires.

Campaign spokeswoman Heather Brewer said Toulouse Oliver would spend about seven hours in all on Monday and Tuesday reading aloud the second of two volumes from the report that focuses on obstruction of justice.

1. Maggie Toulouse Oliver is one of my heroes

She has been a wonderful SoS - Among other things, she made sure every vote got counted.. I know because I was there counting... mail ins, provisionals... we went the extra mile because that is what the SoS demanded. The ballots were handled with great care, following the Law to the letter. I was so proud to be a Poll Worker.. and later, a Presiding Judge. All because of Maggie Toulouse Oliver. I hope she wins the Senate seat, she is gonna be great no matter what she does. But we will lose an exceptional, strong and ethical Secretary of State.



I am not surprised she is reading the Mueller report aloud.. this is something she would do because she cares about truth and she is not afraid to speak truth to power. Maggie Toulouse Oliver has a voice and she is gonna use it.

2. Realistically, though..

Does Lujan have it locked up?

3. Probably

He is, as many pundits say, a rising political star. I think he is surfing the blue wave rather well.

I wish Lujan was more of an advocate for impeachment though.. that might be a deal breaker..but you never know. He supports Pelosi all the way. Maggie supports impeachment, but I don't think Haaland or Small does either. Wish they'd get on board!! All aboard!!
