A recent poll found that a majority of likely voters believe that former President Donald Trump was a target of a Clinton campaign-funded hit job during the 2016 election and want the FBI officials who investigated him based on it to face prosecution.
A poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports found that 63 percent of respondents think the Clinton campaign orchestrated the Russian collusion smear against then-candidate Trump during the 2016 presidential election. Only 30 percent disagreed.
In mid-May, Special Counsel John Durham released his much-anticipated report of his probe into the FBI’s “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation in which he revealed details about the plot to undermine Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign by alleging that Russia colluded with the GOP nominee to defeat Hillary Clinton.
Durham’s report raised serious issues about the FBI’s investigation and the bureau’s coordination with the Clinton campaign.
Based on the Rasmussen survey, the majority of Americans believe that those involved in the FBI investigation should face consequences.
According to the survey, nearly 6 in 10 respondents, 59 percent, want the FBI officials who promoted the phony RussiaGate hoax “criminally prosecuted.” Only 23 percent disagreed while another 18 percent were unsure.
According to the Durham report, the FBI was aware before opening its investigation that the Clinton campaign was the source of the claims linking Trump to the Russians, and those claims had no basis in fact.
In related news, last week, Florida Rep. Anna Paulina Luna filed a privileged resolution in the House to censure and fine California Democrat Adam Schiff $16 million “for his egregious abuse of trust” in promoting the RussiaGate hoax, the Washington Examiner reported.
In a tweet last Tuesday, Luna said she and her Republican colleagues are looking forward to voting on the resolution “to hold this feckless man accountable.”
After the Durham report was released, Luna also filed a motion to expel Schiff from the House.
