So, did the release of the Mueller report clear things up for everyone? Are we unified as a nation in what it says and implies? Are there some Trump supporters who have now abandoned the President as a result of what they’ve heard? How many #NeverTrumpers or Democrats are now saying they were wrong all along? If you answered zero, you were correct.
But that’s not the importance of the report. You, me, and anyone else who would read this article or pretty much any article about the Mueller report likely falls into the category of being politically cognizant. Unfortunately, that’s not a classification that can be granted to a majority of Americans. Some are so loosely political they know which party they like and perhaps a few politicians. Others are apolitical. Then, there are the true independents who base their votes and opinions on their perceptions of individuals.
The Mueller report may have an audience of pundits and interested parties on both ends of the spectrum, but the target audience of the people talking about the report in the media are those in the middle who might be swayed by tidbits of perspectives they hear about the report. In the short term, it comes down to who gets in these people’s ears; which news channels they hit, what pundits they listen to occasionally, and what the people they respect in their circle of influence says about the report. But in the long run, this will likely be categorized as a failed attempt by the left to catch the President doing something illegal.
I say “likely” because I haven’t read the report. When I read it tonight, I’ll have a better idea of whether or not there’s anything that will truly damage him. But so far the reactions to the report have only served to confirm what most people already know. The candidate and President was accustomed to the world of business where he had fewer things regulating his actions and decisions. He wanted certain things done to help him win and keep his presidency, but many of the people around him informed him that such actions were not possible in a campaign or from the White House. He attempted to cover up embarrassing actions, but learned that doing so would cause more harm.
At the end of the day, President Trump didn’t do anything that was either criminal nor grounds for impeachment. This will be the prevailing message that registers with voters a year and a half from now. The Mueller report was a bust for Democrats.
