The Redacted Mueller Report

A (very unclean) text extraction of the Redacted Mueller Report. The text was extracted using pdftools from ROpenSci.

The only cleaning of the data I’ve done was to replace references to Corney with Comey.

library(tidyverse)

mueller_report <- read_csv("mueller_report.csv")

mueller_report %>% 
  filter(page == 195, between(line, 5, 18))
