Democrats Now Calling for Hillary to Be Investigated over Durham Allegations
Sixty-six percent of Democrats wanted Clinton questioned
More than half of Demcorats believe Hillary Clinton should be questioned by special counsel John Durham over her alleged role in the Russian secret server scandal, according to a new poll.
The news comes after bombshell reports from the Durham court filing that the Clinton campaign spied on Donald Trump as a candidate and in office.
Sixty-six percent of Democrats wanted Clinton questioned, according to the poll, which is 22 percentage points higher than how many in her party demanded a probe last October.
Republicans are also unsurprisingly demanding answers, rising to 91 percent in January from 80 percent last October.
Among independents, those wanting the former secretary of state probed rose to 74 percent from 65 percent.
The polls were completed before Durham submitted his bombshell court filing last week.
As Neon Nettle reported:
John Durham filed a motion in federal court alleging that Hillary Clinton’s political allies spied on Donald Trump as a presidential candidate and as the president using cell phone data.
The motion was filed in the case of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, who was charged with lying to the FBI about whether he was working for the campaign after telling the FBI about the link between Trump and Russia, which turned out to be untrue.
Clinton is accused of hiring a tech term to ‘infiltrate’ servers at Trump Tower and the White House during the 2016 campaign.
The Durham filing says Clinton’s aim was to smear Trump by linking him to Russia.
Clinton’s campaign accused Trump of using a secret server to communicate with Russians.
President Donald Trump responded to the recent allegations that Hillary Clinton operatives spied on him using cell phone data during the 2016 campaign and into his presidency, calling it “worse than Watergate.”
“The latest pleading from Special Counsel Robert Durham provides indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign in an effort to develop a completely fabricated connection to Russia,” Trump said.
“This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate, and those who were involved in and knew about this spying operation should be subject to criminal prosecution.
“In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death.
“In addition, reparations should be paid to those in our country who have been damaged by this.”
