Most Americans Say Trump-Russia Probe Was ‘Hit Job,’ Want FBI Officials Prosecuted, Poll Shows

The vast majority of Americans say the FBI’s now-debunked Trump-Russia probe was a political “hit job” against the 45th president, a new poll has revealed.

According to a Rasmussen poll, released after Special Counsel John Durham released his report on the origins of Russiagate, two-thirds of voters believe President Donald Trump was the target of politically motivated investigations by partisan law enforcement officials.

The majority of respondents said they want the FBI officials involved to be “criminally prosecuted” for pushing false allegations that Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia.

Last week, Durham released his long-awaited report.

The investigations by the special counsel found that the FBI should never have launched an investigation into Trump’s campaign over its alleged ties with Russia.

Durham found that the FBI knew the allegations were false and that they were fabricated by Hillary Clinton and her 2016 campaign.

“Based on the review of Crossfire Hurricane and related intelligence activities, we conclude that the Department and the FBI failed to uphold their important mission of strict fidelity to the law in connection with certain events and activities described in this report,” the 300-page report concluded. 

Duram’s report also revealed that top leaders at the FBI shut down four criminal investigations into Hillary and Bill Clinton, among other findings. 

Sixty-three percent of voters told Rasmussen they believe the Trump-Russia narrative was a political “hit job,” orchestrated by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. 

Durham’s report criticized several high-level FBI officials for participating in the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation, including Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Peter Strzok.

The Rasmussen survey found that 59 percent want the agents involved in the Trump-Russia investigation “criminally prosecuted” for their actions.

Rasmussen polled 1,013 U.S. likely voters between May 21 and May 23.

The survey’s margin of error is ±3 percentage points.
