Why you should care
Because the political implications for the Mueller report are huge.
On Sunday, Attorney General William Barr released a summary of the conclusions of special counsel Robert Mueller, after a nearly two-year investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. To make sense of it all, OZY brings you voices from different sides of the debate. Here is Seth Weathers, a political consultant in Georgia who worked on Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Over the last two years, Democrats, with the help of a culpable media, fed the American people the biggest hoax in presidential history. The Mueller report has been handed over to the Department of Justice, and the outcome is no collusion or conspiracy. That’s not a surprise to those of us who knew this was a hoax from the start.
After two years, $25 million spent on 19 lawyers, 40 support staff including FBI agents, 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants and 500 witnesses interviewed, the special counsel could not find evidence definitively linking President Donald Trump or his campaign to collusion with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election, according to Attorney General William Barr’s summary released Sunday.
The millions of people who relied on the mainstream media are going to be taken aback by the total vindication of President Trump. They were promised clear and conclusive evidence of corruption that would rival the plot of any James Bond movie. Yet there was no frog-march from the White House, no indictment of Don Jr., no secret communication with the Kremlin. What happened? We were lied to, that’s what happened.
The amount of bullshit Americans have consumed over the course of two years would make anyone revolt.
Many Democrat partisans will refuse to believe it was all a big hoax. The same cannot be said for millions of Independents and moderate Democrats who are not heavily invested in the Democratic Party. They are going to take a hard look at what the Party of Witch Hunts put the American people through for the past two years. How can a party willing to push a massive hoax for political gain also be looking out for people of this country?
The Democratic Party and mainstream media are in panic mode. They’ll do their best to make lemonade out of this rotten lemon of a hoax. Andrea Mitchell of NBC openly pondered via tweet that maybe the reason Mueller didn’t find evidence to indict was that Trump’s people lied to the special counsel. You can smell the desperation. After all the hype, this is not going to play well. People were promised steak, and they received manure instead.
Key to no prosecution on obstruction may be no evidence of an underlying crime of conspiracy with Russia. But did #Mueller not find evidence of conspiracy with Russia because so many people lied? Catch-22

The American people are tired of bullshit from politicians and the media. It’s why they elected Trump as their president. Over the past two years, they’ve received shovels full of bullshit from the Democrats and mainstream media pushing a false Russia conspiracy narrative. The amount of bullshit they’ve consumed over the course of two years would make anyone revolt. And revolt they will.
Even so, Democrats in the D.C. bubble will likely proceed with continued investigations and eventually impeachment proceedings. This will be as successful for them as it was for Republicans with President Bill Clinton.
Many Independents and moderate Democrats will no longer know who or what to believe. They were already being pushed away by the extreme socialist wing of the party. Some will join with Republicans in 2020, more will stay home. But the result will be the same: fewer Democrat votes.
Across the aisle, Republicans are angry and fired up. They haven’t been this motivated since the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. This energy will not quickly fade. For more than two years, the enthusiasm grew as they were being told they were supporting a traitor, with constant misinformation and lies from the media they will not quickly forget.
The Democrats and their bullshit hoax have ensured Trump’s reelection in 2020.
