Democrats in growing numbers call for probe of Hillary Clinton’s role in Trump–Russia collusion narrative

Though countless Americans have long believed that justice for Hillary Clinton’s decades of shady dealings and abuse of power was long overdue, it now appears that even Democrats are now coming to the conclusion that she deserves thorough investigation over her rumored involvement in the creation of the now-discredited Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

As the Daily Mail reports, a poll conducted last month by TechnoMetrica Institute of Policy and Politics (TIPP) revealed that a whopping 66% of respondents who identified as Democrats said that the former secretary of State, first lady, and presidential contender should be questioned in the ongoing probe being conducted by Special Counsel John Durham.

Startlingly for Clinton, that number represents a 22-point jump from where Democrats stood on the issue as recently as October.

Not surprisingly, the number of Republicans calling for accountability from Clinton is notably higher than that of Democrats, with 91% of GOP-affiliated participants indicating their support for a probe of her conduct, an increase from a still-noteworthy 80% from October.

Clinton cannot take comfort among independent voters, as the survey further noted, with 74% of that demographic group now supporting an investigation of her activities, up from 65% who said the same back in the Fall.

What is even worse for Clinton is the fact that these latest figures were collected before news broke over the weekend of a motion filed by Durham which appears to suggest that Clinton-paid attorney operatives carried out plan to glean data from Trump-connected computer servers to form the basis of the Russia collusion narrative that consumed much of the former president’s term in office.

In response to reports of Durham’s motion, Kash Patel, former chief investigator of the House of Representatives’ Trump-Russia probe, said that the filing “definitively showed the Hillary Clinton campaign directly funded and ordered its lawyers at Perkins Coie to orchestrate a criminal enterprise to fabricate a connection between President Trump and Russia.”

Patel continued, stating, “Per Durham, this arrangement was put in motion in July of 2016, meaning the Hillary Clinton campaign and her lawyers masterminded the most intricate and coordinated conspiracy against Trump when he was both a candidate and later president of the United States.”

Trump responded to the news of the filing with justified outrage, saying, “[i]n a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death,” and while most Americans would be reluctant to support such an outcome, their growing support for a comprehensive probe of Clinton’s involvement in such a shocking scandal is an encouraging development, indeed.
