Number of Americans Supporting Ending Russia Investigation Doubles

If there was collusion between President Donald Trump and the Russians during his 2016 election campaign, liberals have to admit that they’re brilliant masterminds.

After all, it’s now been nearly two years since the FBI opened their counterintelligence operation into the Trump campaign, which was then taken over by Robert Mueller’s special counsel after the firing of FBI director James Comey. If there was some smoking gun, how has it not been uncovered yet? Wiretapping two members of the Trump campaign (Paul Manafort and Carter Page) and sending at least one spy to try to infiltrate the Trump campaign didn’t manage to uncover anything? (RELATED: FBI Informant Accused Of Making ‘False’ And ‘Absurd’ Allegations About Russian Infiltration).

The special counsel has all the characteristics of a witch hunt – with the strongest being that all the charges that have resulted from the counsel are completely unrelated to Russian collusion. Manafort, for instance, was found guilty on charges of money laundering and tax fraud completely unrelated to anything doing with Russia. George Papadopoulos and Michael Flynn plead guilty to lying to the FBI – but nothing regarding illegal collusion during the campaign.

It’s a faux investigation – and the American public is waking up to that fact more and more every day. According to NTK Network: “Support for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s 2016 activities has steadily declined since its beginning in the summer of 2017, according to a poll from Monmouth University. The Monmouth poll found only 52 percent of Americans support the continuation of the Mueller probe, down from 73 percent in May 2017, when the investigation was still under the purview of the FBI.”

Meanwhile, the percentage of Americans that support ending the probe altogether has jumped from 24 percent to 45 percent over the same time period.

This poll coincides with the release of new texts from anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok, who was eventually removed from Mueller’s probe (and previously played a large role in the FBI’s counterintelligence operation).

“(Trump’s) not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Strzok’s mistress wrote to him in one text.

“No. No, he’s not. We’ll stop it,” replied Strzok. (RELATED: Here’s How ‘Challenging’ It Was To Find Strzok’s ‘We’ll Stop’ Trump Text Message).

They failed at stopping it – and the special counsel’s attempt at “taking down” Trump post-election has proven just as unsuccessful.

  • Manafort has not been found guilty of anything yet! And this Left wing Cow of a Judge just threw him in jail for no valid reason.
    Folks, the real reason why they are going after Manafort so hard is he was almost single handedly responsible for delivering Pennsylvania to Trump in the primnary, and the left hates him for it! And even with the left pulling all the dirty cheating tricks in the big cities, Trump still won PA in the election! AND WHAT THE HELL EVER HAPPENED TO THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS?

  • Manafort, for instance, was found guilty on charges of money laundering and tax fraud completely unrelated to anything doing with Russia.

    I don't think that's correct!
    Has he been found guilty? When?

  • Well, first of all, there is NO SUCH CRIME as "illegal collusion," because collusion is NOT A CRIME. Even if they found Pres. Trump GUILTY of "collusion," they vould not prosecute him, because it is NOT A CRIME. And that is not even CONSIDERING the fact that the entire Mueller "investigation" is nothing but a thinly-disguised PARTISAN WITCH HUNT and attempted coup de' etat to OVERTHROW a LEGALLY-elected President by the schemng, CONNIVING Commucrats.

  • Why would we want the Russian investigation stopped, it’s only cost $17 million so far (rolling eyes).

  • .... Manafort was found guilty on charges of money laundering and tax fraud ....

    Any chance any of the rest of your piece is true?

    • Gee, the last time I checked, Paul Manafort had NOT been tried in court on ANY of those charges, so HOW could he be "found guilty," unless the LYING conniving WITCH HUNTERS in the Mueller circus are empowered to function as judge, jury AND executioner, on top of everything ELSE?

  • That's exactly what I was going to say Andy. Mueller couldn't care any less what Americans think or want. He has an agenda & he will not stop until someone MAKES him.

  • Why would Mueller ever end the investigation unless he is forced to? This is his proverbial "gold mine." When it comes to government, always follow the $$$.
