Washington, D.C.: After two years and untold millions of dollars, Robert Mueller’s special investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election has come to a close. The Department of Justice has completely exonerated President Trump and his campaign, finding no evidence of collusion or obstruction. In these two wasted years, the media has readily earned the title of ‘fake news’ by promoting Democrat narratives as if they were fact.
“The Democrat-prized Mueller Probe has ended, and we see once and for all that Donald Trump was absolutely correct in calling it a witch hunt,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “This team of leftist lawyers spent two years harassing and drumming up controversy around the Trump presidency, preventing real work from happening and tying up millions of dollars.
“The media, too, has a hand in this reckless endeavor. They have gleefully reported on a Democrat wish list as if there were facts and evidence to back it up, giving countless hours of television and an average of over a dozen articles a day to this drummed up, baseless story.
“This is a a complete and total WIN for President Trump and for the American people. Reckless Democrats and the irresponsible fake news media must be held accountable for their complicit and perpetual fabrications that have disrupted the work of getting our nation back on track.”
