The Mueller Report is available for preorder, though it hasn't been released yet.

It's unclear if or when the Mueller Report, the culmination of a nearly two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election, will be released to the public, but you can apparently preorder it on Amazon. 

There are two listings for the report so far, one to be published by Skyhorse Publishing and the other from The Washington Post. The former is already ranked on Amazon as a bestseller. 

Both listings contain a disclaimer that the publication date listed, April 30, 2019, is a placeholder. 

Amazon and the Department of Justice didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. 

A spokesman for Skyhorse Publishing said via email that it intends to quickly publish the report in book form once it's released. 

"We are planning to publish the report with my introduction as soon as it is available," said Alan Dershowitz, who is listed as the author for the introduction on the Skyhorse version, in an email. Dershowitz said he's started to outline his introduction based on the summary letter Attorney General William Barr submitted to Congress over the weekend.

Likewise, The Washington Post said in February that it would "instantly" publish the report as an e-book and also as a paperback.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer released a joint statement Sunday calling for the release of the full report to Congress.
