Majority of Americans Support Jail For FBI Officials Who Broke Law To Target Trump Campaign
A majority of Americans believe James Comey and Andrew McCabe and others belong in jail for what they did to Trump.
The poll was taken by Rasmussen, a polling outfit with a good reputation, and they found that 52 percent of Americans are so furious with the FBI leadership that some of them should be prosecuted and locked up.
Look, the more Americans learn about what happened, and they will as time goes by, it will only get worse for the gang who couldn’t shoot straight.
From The Epoch Times: Fifty-two percent of likely voters surveyed by Rasmussen Reports think senior federal law enforcement officials broke the law to block President Donald Trump in 2016, but even more doubt they will ever be punished.
According to Rasmussen on Monday, 55 percent say that their being punished is unlikely, which includes 36 percent who believe that is very unlikely.
Those numbers were unchanged from results Rasmussen got in response to the same questions in February. There was one big change from the earlier numbers, though.
“A plurality (43 percent) thinks these officials should be jailed if they are found guilty of breaking the law to prevent a Trump presidency, up dramatically from 25 percent earlier this year,” Rasmussen said. That’s an 18-point increase since February.
“Another 22 percent think they should just be fired. Fifteen percent favor a formal reprimand. Just 11 percent say no disciplinary action should be taken.
“Eighty percent of voters who strongly approve of the job Trump is doing think it’s very likely that senior federal law enforcement officials attempted illegally to deny him the presidency.
“Among voters who strongly disapprove of the president’s job performance, only 9 percent agree.”
The Rasmussen survey results follow last week’s release of the long-delayed report by Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz concerning how approval was obtained from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court for the FBI to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
