The [REDACTED] Mueller Report

BeforeTheWar

Chardonnay Merlot and Dawn Ennis return with a special Redacted Mueller Report edition recorded at Bruegger’s Bagels on South Main Street in West Hartford, Conn.

We discuss what we’ve learned in the early hours since the release of the redacted version of the Mueller Report, plus we discuss the existence of LGBTQ Republicans and conservatives, an anti-Chick-fil-A protest, and the emerging big issues of the 2020 campaign.

Read the full report yourself by clicking this link. 

Later this afternoon we’ll share more links and other information below the link to our SoundCloud podcast. 

If you’d like to read my story about the Cincinnati Chick-fil-A protest, click here.

How many out LGBTQ Republicans won their races in the last election cycle? Three. Read my story for Into by clicking here.

Read about the difficulties faced by LGBTQ conservatives in this story from The New York Times. 

And if you’re an LGBTQ Republican, you will find likeminded people in a group that calls itself the Log Cabin Republicans. You can read about them at their website, and we recommend you get another perspective of them, with which we happen to agree, by clicking here. 

We’ll see you next week!
