Trump slams Russian Federation probe but says report should be public

April FrancisMar 21, 2019

"So explain that because my voters don't get it, and I don't get it", he said before repeating familiar knocks against the special counsel. Currently, 50% of Americans consider Mueller's investigation to be a witch hunt, while 47% disagree. Among independents, 54 percent echo this view. More details from the poll are available here.

The poll prompted a tweet from the president, who said that "very few think" the poll "is legit". Trump did not explicitly say that he would authorize its release. But now, Trump and his allies are starting to see it as something potentially very different: a political opportunity.

"If you want to let them see it, let them see it", Trump told reporters. "Because Trump is so personally implicated in this, that's a totally fair question", Kent says. Lynch says that Mueller's report will "say no collusion, absolutely none". It has, however, resulted in indictments for dozens of Russian nationals and companies as well as a number of former Trump associates.

- Twenty-eight percent thought the House should seriously consider impeaching President Trump, while almost 62 percent opposed impeachment.

According to their sources, Lemire and Jalonick report, "a full-throated attack on the investigation, portraying it as a failed coup, could also be the centerpiece of Trump campaign events, including rallies". Pelosi's comments against impeachment influenced the opinion of 41 percent of Democrats compared to 42 percent who said her comments had no impact. Another 14 percent said it was not at all, or not particularly, important.

The president accused the Democrats of trying to use impeachment to "steal" the USA presidency away from him.

There's no sense in campaigning if you already know every single answer ... that's what brought me here", he said. The Texas Democrat, who has publicly mulled a run for months, confirmed his plans in a text to KTSM .

"I had the greatest electoral victory in the history of our country, one of them", he said.

Mueller, Trump charges, "put 13 angry Democrats in" his investigative team, also false.

By contrast, Kent notes, if Trump really wants to "let it come out", he could refrain from doing those things, and even facilitate the release if he chooses.

Only 28 percent of people surveyed still highly trust that former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Mueller's investigation has been conducted fairly and accurately, down 5 points since December and representing the lowest level to-date.

Special counsel is not an elected position, and Mueller, former head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has not sought elective office. As of this week, Manafort will face 81 months in prison.

"Let it come out, let people see it, that's up to the attorney general. and we'll see what happens", Trump told reporters at the White House.
