Nobody Knows What’s In The Mueller Report And People Are Freaking Out

The news that the long-awaited Mueller report has been completed has dominated national headlines since it was announced on Friday.

The report, the result of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s two-year investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, has been much anticipated but now it’s in the hands of Attorney General William Barr, who will decide how much of the report to share with Congress and the public at large.

Needless to say after two years of waiting that public is a bit impatient and learning that the report is complete but getting no indication of when its contents will be made public has people both tapping their fingers and speculating wildly on what the report may or may not reveal.

As noted by The New York Times other investigations into Trump’s dealings are still ongoing but after two years of hype around the Mueller probe… people want to see that damn report.

Leading Democrats agreed.

Some people tried using humor to cope.

There was excitement…but also impatience.

Others warned people not to get their hopes up too high. (Too late.)

Some wondered why Trump was oddly silent on the matter and hadn’t yet responded.

Those who doubted a conspiracy with Russia from the beginning were gleeful, reasoning that Mueller’s lack of further indictments likely means there was, as Trump has long insisted, “no collusion.”

Meanwhile others pointed out that even if the report doesn’t prove Trump colluded directly with Russia, his employees and inner circle have already been charged with a shocking number of crimes in the course of the investigation.

As for what the report actually says or doesn’t say…nobody outside of Robert Mueller, his team, and Attorney General William Barr knows.

And so we wait.

And wonder.

And lose our minds a bit.
