Parkland Survivor David Hogg took to Twitter and pushed his wildest conspiracy theory to date.
Don’t be fooled, this shutdown is about slowing down Mueller and the FBI.

As The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra pointed out this is just plain wrong.
“Mueller investigation will not stall in government shutdown”: https://t.co/pgw0fCZAtS
“The special counsel’s office is ‘funded from a permanent indefinite appropriation and would be unaffected in the event of a shutdown,’ a Justice Department spokesman told The Hill.” https://t.co/DfckPRlQlO

This is truly disturbing. Hogg’s false tweet has 49,000 likes and over 11,000 retweets. However, the Fact Check from Ryan only has 210 retweets at this time.
Thousands of Americans will now buy into the Conspiracy that Trump is shutting down the government over the Mueller probe and of course, that has no basis in reality.
