Half of Americans believe President Donald Trump is the victim of a political "witch hunt", almost two years after the launch of the Russian Federation meddling investigation, a new poll showed Monday.
The USA Today poll finds that now, only 28% of respondents think the House should seriously consider impeaching the president. And the story included a section about Trump's critical tweets about Mueller and "the president's success in persuading fully half of the electorate that he's been subjected to unprecedented scrutiny". Currently, 50% of Americans consider Mueller's investigation to be a witch hunt, while 47% disagree. Their party's base demands ever more insane denunciations of President Trump, even as the larger public is growing more sympathetic to the view that attacks on the president have gone too far.
President Trump repeatedly suggested Wednesday that Robert Mueller's report would be illegitimate - because Trump was voted into office and the special counsel was not.
Trump then spent several minutes slamming former Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe, bragged about his electoral college win, and pointed out that he got "63 million more" votes than Robert Mueller did. And the president and his advisers are now considering how to weaponize those possible findings.
"Very few think it is legit!"

"With the investigation in its third year, people want to know what the investigation uncovered and whether President Trump colluded with the Russians or directed others to collude with the Russians", he said in a statement. According to Gingrich, Trump could easily use Mueller's final report as a political talking point if it doesn't contain any major bombshells.
Mueller is required to produce a confidential report that at a minimum explains decisions about who was and was not prosecuted.
These trends put Democratic presidential candidates in a hard position. I think it's ridiculous, but I want to see the report, and you know who wants to see it?
The Department of Justice rebuked claims made by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe during his bombshell "60 Minutes" interview last month, where McCabe alleged that Rosenstein discussed invoking the Constitution's 25th Amendment.
"A deputy, because of the fact that the Attorney General didn't have the courage to do it himself, a deputy, that's appointed, appoints another man to write a report", is how Trump described the Mueller investigation.
