Apathy, anger and relief: How voters around the country are processing the end of Mueller
Evan Amo, a self-described liberal independent, is a pastor at Peoples Presbyterian Church in Denver.
"I care about corruption and conspiracy and collusion and nepotism and all that, but I think that the duration of this whole process has led me to feel skeptical and less hopeful," said Evan Amo, a 30-year-old Presbyterian pastor who just recently moved to Denver and did not support Trump in 2016. "I think a lot of people are just feeling fatigued by the whole investigation process."
Democrats and liberals now have to confront a difficult truth: The inquiry that consumed so much of Washington for the better part of two years ended, and which many Democrats hoped would bring down the President, has left him and his supporters feeling vindicated and vengeful.
For Amo, a self-described liberal independent, the outcome has caused him to examine his own motivations. "I would prefer that Trump is not our president, but I just don't think it is constructive to wish for this investigation to prove his guilt just because we despise him or to have a victory over Republicans," he said. "That's the tension that I have: What are my motives? Do I want a loss for Trump and a win for my party, or do I want justice for our Democracy as whole?"
