If you’re a fan of video games or cartoons you’ve probably heard Paul Eiding’s voice. The voice actor has more than 250 acting credits, ranging from the original Transformers cartoon to the Halo games. Metal Gear Solid fans know him best as the voice of Col. Roy Campbell, hero Solid Snake’s handler for various dangerous missions. Campbell’s soothing, fatherly voice was a constant and comforting companion during the series.

Now you can hear it read Robert Mueller’s indictment against Russian trolls. “Snake,” Eiding begins. “The organization sought, in part, to conduct information warfare against the United States of America.” It sounds exactly like a mission briefing for Solid Snake’s latest mission.
