Robert Mueller’s entire reputation rides on his investigation into Russia collusion.
He has spent the last year of his life dedicated to proving it.
But now none of that matters and Robert Mueller is done after career-ending news just dropped.
While it is true that Robert Mueller is a thorn in the side of President Trump, it seems that every day that goes by he becomes less of a problem. While many were initially welcoming of Mueller’s investigation into Russia collusion, being over a year into the investigation with no real evidence presented has turned off a lot of people.
In fact, so many people have been turned off of Robert Mueller’s investigation that Mueller’s own public image just reached an all-time low. The new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows that a record 53 percent of Republicans viewing the Russia investigation as unfavorable, with only 18 percent seeing the investigation as favorable.
While a majority of Democrats do still support Mueller’s investigation, the latest numbers show a large number of Democrats have flipped, with 24 percent unfavorable. While the numbers among Democrats may look good, they have steadily gone down since July of 2017.
For an investigation so partisan, it is not a good sign when Democrats start believing that the investigation is unfair.
But as the days go by, it becomes hard not to lose trust in the investigation. Despite grandstanding from high-level Democrats about Trump colluding with Russia during the 2016 election, there isn’t much evidence.
In fact, the only evidence that held any weight was quickly disproven.
In July of last year, evidence related to a meeting held between Donald Trump, Jr, Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort, and a Russian lawyer came to light. The media played the story up as a smoking gun proving that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia.
But after a few days of cheering, their narrative was destroyed when Donald Trump Jr. spoke out, confirming the meeting, and stating exactly what happened in the meeting. Trump Jr. was blunt about what happened at the meeting, stating that it was a waste of time.
His story was corroborated with the accounts of other campaign officials familiar with the meeting.
And just to make it more clear that nothing occurred at the meeting, the Russian lawyer in question recently spoke out with a question for Robert Mueller. She was wondering why Mueller never reached out to her for any sort of questioning, considering she became a central figure in the investigation he is running.
Robert Mueller never provided an answer, and instead continued trying to hunt down anything to indict President Donald Trump and his allies. It is likely that sort of ignorance of important questions that turned much of the country off of Robert Mueller.
Even many Republicans trusted Robert Mueller near the start of his investigation. A poll conducted in July of 2017 shows that 27 percent of Republicans had an unfavorable impression of Robert Mueller. That number is now at 53 percent, and it all has to do with them losing trust in Mueller.
Do you think Robert Mueller should end his Russia investigation?
