Brad Parscale weaponizes Mueller findings for Trump 2020 campaign

March 24, 2019

President Trump’s 2020 campaign urged voters to eye Democrats suspiciously after special counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence of collusion with Russia, accusing them of orchestrating a “frantic, chaotic, conspiracy-laden roller coaster for two years.”

Campaign manager Brad Parscale said Democrats were caught in a “web of lies and deceit,” before turning his gaze to a series of ongoing probes by House Democrats.

“Their dirty tricks have not ended. Even today Democrats have picked up the disgraceful mantle of investigating, obstructing, and destroying the will of the American people at any cost. They failed once and they will fail again,” he said.

The campaign followed up Mr. Parscale’s statement by email-blasting a 40-second video of Democrats claiming there was collusion, followed each time by a Family Feud-style buzzer and the message “Wrong” in big red letters.

The statement offered a preview of how Team Trump will weaponize Mr. Mueller’s findings after the probe into possible collusion loomed over Mr. Trump’s first two years.

Mr. Parscale said the president, all the while, has been focused on national security and boosting the economy.

“The American people should take notice: the Democrats have lied to you, while President Trump has been hard at work building a booming economy and making you safer,” he said.
