Economist/YouGov Poll Shows Majority Of Americans Support Russian Probe Led By Special Counsel Mueller

Special Counsel Robert Mueller

A majority of Americans strongly approve of the Russian probe led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller of the Justice Department to investigate Russian influence during the 2016 presidential election.

According to a recent Economist/YouGov poll taken from October 29-31, a majority of Americans (33 percent) strongly approve of the Justice Department appointing a Special Counsel to oversee the investigation of Russian influence during the 2016 presidential election.

Twenty-one percent of Americans approve somewhat of the Special Counsel compared to 14 percent who disapprove somewhat and 13 percent who disapprove strongly.

After the Justice Department recently indicted 2 former Trump campaign officials with 12 new counts, including one count related to conspiracy to launder money, President Trump pushed back and tried to turn the tables on the Special Counsel and FBI by questioning why the Democrats aren’t being investigated and then later claimed that people are angry.

“Everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn’t looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary & the Dems…..New Donna B book says she paid for and stole the Dem Primary. What about the deleted E-mails, Uranium, Podesta, the Server, plus, plus…People are angry. At some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!” Trump tweeted on Nov. 3rd in a series of 3 tweets.

Oklahoma Republican Senator James Lankford said on NBC’s Meet the Press that Bob Mueller needs to be able to finish his investigation.
