2000 Mules’: Election Conspiracy Documentary Vanishes from All Streaming Platforms!

After the conservative media company Salem Media, the distributor of the film and book “2,000 Mules,” which alleged a widespread election fraud conspiracy by Democrats in the 2020 election, apologized for their role in the project, they have decided to halt distribution of the film and remove both the film and book from their platforms. The apology came after Mark Andrews, a Georgia voter falsely depicted illegally voting in “2,000 Mules,” filed a defamation lawsuit against Salem, Dinesh D’Souza, and True the Vote. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation cleared Andrews of wrongdoing, as he was legally dropping off ballots for members of his family.

Andrews’ lawsuit, which led to violent threats against him and his family, was brought with the help of the nonprofit group Protect Democracy. According to a court filing in a related case, Salem settled the lawsuit brought by Andrews for an undisclosed “significant” amount. Salem wrote in their statement, “It was never our intent that the publication of the ‘2000 Mules’ film and book would harm Mr. Andrews. We apologize for the hurt the inclusion of Mr. Andrews’ image in the movie, book, and promotional materials have caused Mr. Andrews and his family.”

This is not the first time there has been a rift among the makers and distributor of “2,000 Mules.” When D’Souza published the book version of the film and made allegations of illegal “ballot trafficking” against specific nonprofit groups, True the Vote issued a statement saying that the group “had no participation in this book, and has no knowledge of its contents.” True the Vote added, “This includes any allegations of activities of any specific organizations made in the book. We made no such allegations.” That version of the book was subsequently recalled and replaced with a version that omitted multiple significant allegations.
