Most Americans Want Congress To Drop ‘Witch Hunt’ In Favor Of ‘More Serious Issues’: CBS Survey

A new poll from CBS found that a majority of Americans want Congress to quit investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election, and had heard enough after the Mueller report was published earlier this year, according to the Daily Mail.

A poll carried out by CBS showed 53 per cent of respondents believe the Mueller Probe should be abandoned in favour of more serious issues.

As many as 58 per cent also said they had heard enough about the report when it was published earlier this year. –Daily Mail

While respondents predictably replied along party lines – with 73% of Democrats saying the investigation should continue, and 74% saying Mueller should testify before Congress, the results suggest that Republicans and independents who were on the fence are satisfied with the results of the special counsel investigation.

Thirty-one percent said the report cleared him of any wrongdoing, and 33% said the report does not clear him. Thirty-two percent said it was too soon to decide if it does. –Daily Mail

Earlier this month, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called on Congressional Democrats to end the investigations into Trump, saying “case closed,” and calling it a “Groundhog Day spectacle.”

“Remember, Russia set out to sow discord, to create chaos in American politics and undermine confidence in our democracy,” said McConnell. “But on that front, given the left’s total fixation on delegitimizing the president — the president Americans chose and shooting any messenger who tells them inconvenient truths, I’m afraid the Russians hardly needed to lift a finger.”

Last week, President Trump stormed out of an infrastructure meeting with Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi (CA) and Chuck Schumer (NY), saying in a press conference that he couldn’t negotiate while under partisan scrutiny.

Trump then gave a press conference in which he began by refuting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s accusation that he is engaged in a “cover up,” saying “I don’t do cover ups.


“I walked into the room and I told Sen. Schumer, Speaker Pelosi: I want to do infrastructure, I want to do it more than you want to do it… But you know what, you can’t do it under these circumstances.”

  1. Could not agree more. You were sent to Congress to take care of the Nation and the People and you only want to do what will stop President Trump from doing what is good for both. There are too many problems in the country to “investigate” President Trump and the Republicans. To begin, take care of the border, build the wall, stop the invaders from flocking in and taking our money, work on the infrastructure, decrease the debt – and do not add more to it -, tackle the homeless problem, stop the “sanctuary” areas, and pass/enforce the laws that would throw the illegal invaders out of our country, stop giving them “rights” and our money. This is only a beginning list, just get off your asses and get to work.

  2. I agree. I believe this is just an excuse to not tackle the major problems within our country. Enough already! If you don’t want to work, step aside and let true Americans take your place that care about our citizens.

  3. To me, it seems that every democrat, and some republicans, have intentionally violated their “Oath of Office”. Robert Fott pretty well hit the nail on the head, except…….those who have violated their office should immediately be held accountable. GOD bless President TRUMP.

  4. I say contact your states congress people and demand they stop playing “games” with us,The People of the US.Stop giving the invaders freebees and do the jobs They were voted to do.

  5. Is anyone really surprised that the people want Congress to down to work instead of the garbage they have been doing for the past two year? With a few new members in the House of Representatives, it has become more of a House of MISRepresentatives.

  6. Treason is a badge of honor for the Godless NAZI Commie liberal Racist Muslim Demoncrat Party & RINOs! The party of hate, hypocrisy, lies, deception,Fake News(Russian Collusion & Jussie M hoax)the list is endless!And the clueless minions that follow them!
