Two-thirds of Democrats want Hillary Clinton investigated over Russiagate scandal: poll

Two-thirds, or 66 percent, of the Democrats surveyed want to see Clinton investigated over the Russiagate scandal.


Following the explosive Durham report, it's been revealed that most Democrats want failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton investigated for any role in attempting to link former President Donald Trump to Russia, according to a poll.

The new survey, conducted by TechnoMetrica Institute of Policy and Politics in New Jersey last month, polled 1,308 Americans about the bombshell investigation by Special Counsel John Durham into the FBI's probe of Trump's alleged links to Kremlin on 2016 presidential campaign trail, the New York Post reported.

About three out of four respondents who are following the story believe prosecutors should investigate Clinton, along with top Clinton campaign advisers, for any possible culpability in the Russiagate scandal. The number includes two-thirds, or 66 percent, of the Democrats surveyed who have been following the case.

It's up 20 points from October, when TIPP asked a national panel the same question, indic

ating that the Durham probe may be turning Democratic opinion.

In addition, 91 percent of Republicans in the same group of respondents, as well as 65 percent of independent voters, also called for Clinton to be investigated.

Durham had indicted Clinton campaign subcontractor and Russian national Igor Danchenko, the primary source of intelligence behind the fake Steele dossier used as a basis for the Trump-Russia probe, for allegedly lying to the FBI.

Danchenko was charged with making false statements after he fabricated information for the collection of reports compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, according to Durham's indictment.

Clinton-connected attorney Michael Sussmann, the former law partner of Clinton campaign general counsel Mark Elias, was also indicted over lying to the FBI during a meeting discussing suspicions of connections between Trump and Russia.

Durham said in a Feb. 11 legal filing focused on potential conflicts of interest that he discovered that the Clinton campaign paid a technology company to "infiltrate" servers at Trump Towers and the White House to manufacture an "inference" and "narrative" to bring to government agencies linking the 45th president to Russia.

Following the release of Durham's filing accusing the Clinton campaign of paying operatives to spy on Trump's team, the GOP took the offensive Saturday.

In a statement to supporters, Trump said that Durham's pleading provides "indisputable evidence" that the Trump campaign and presidency were "spied on," a scandal which he said is "far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate."

Anyone involved in and knew about the "spying operation" should be "subject to criminal prosecution," Trump declared. "In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death. In addition, reparations should be paid to those in our country who have been damaged by this."

"Now we know. The 2016 Clinton campaign was a criminal enterprise. Paying tech executives to infiltrate Trump servers & the White House. Time for someone to go to jail," Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley commented on Twitter.

"There was spying going on, and it was worse than we thought because they were spying on the sitting president of the United States, and it goes right to the Clinton campaign," Republican Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan reacted to the news.

The poll also found that Americans want greater scrutiny of the Biden family. More than two-thirds, or 68 percent, of respondents feel it's important that President Joe Biden's controversial son, Hunter Biden, and brother Jimmy Biden are separated from any business involving the Biden administration. The separation includes communicating with the president and Biden aides about policy proposals or taking any government jobs or contracts, the majority told pollsters.

An equal share of Democrats and Republicans, 71 percent, agreed that Biden's family members should be kept at arm's length, the survey discovered.

The poll found that 46 percent of Americans think that the mainstream media have done a fair to poor job covering the Democrat president as well as the Biden family's alleged influence-peddling and other corruption allegations.

A majority of Republicans, 69 percent, and independents, 54 percent, slapped the media with poor grades. Meanwhile, 53 percent of Democrats think that legacy media are doing a good job covering the accusations against Biden.
