According to a Rasmussen poll, 8% more Americans think Mueller probe is a partisan witch hunt after the raid on Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen.
Following Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s invasion of the office and home of President Trump’s personal lawyer, voters increasingly believe Mueller’s probe is politically biased. But they also tend to think he is unlikely to nail the president for anything criminal.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters still believe Mueller’s investigation is an honest attempt to determine criminal wrongdoing, but that’s down from 52% last October. Forty percent (40%) now consider Mueller’s probe a partisan witch hunt, an eight-point increase from 32% in the earlier survey. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided
As we reported Michael Cohen was raided by the FBI seemingly out of nowhere. Trump took to Twitter bashing the raid claiming ‘Attorney-Client Privilege is dead’. This is extremely important because it shows a growing weariness from the general public regarding the Robert Mueller probe.
As we have reported Donald Trump has considered firing Rod Rosenstein over the Mueller investigation for his handling of it. Recently Rosenstein signed off on the raiding of President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen which ended up being part of the Mueller investigation. Although it was initially thought to have been to gather information on Michael Cohen’s supposed payments to Stormy Daniels it is now being reported that it was centered around the now infamous ‘Access Hollywood’ tape.
