CBS News Poll Finds Mueller Investigation Is Politically Motivated

A majority of Americans now feel the Russian investigation headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is politically motivated, according to a new CBS News poll.

CBS News reports:

A year into the special counsel investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 elections, a slight majority of Americans thinks the investigation is politically motivated. Fifty-three percent say so, while 44 percent think the investigation is justified.

The poll shows a rise in sentiment about the investigation where previously 48 percent said the investigation was politically motivated.

Unsurprisingly, Republicans are most skeptical of the special counsel probe where only 53 percent feel President Trump should cooperate with Mueller, down 20 points from January where 73 percent believed the president work with the special counsel.

Also, 68 percent of Republicans want Congress to end the investigation but 90 percent of Democrats don’t want Congress to stop it.

Despite the left-wing news promoting the Mueller probe and the Russia collusion narrative, Americans are showing an ability to separate truth from fiction.
