Trump Says Public Opinion is Turning Against Mueller

President Donald Trump on Saturday stated that the public opinion is turning against special counsel Robert Mueller and the probe into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, Newsweek reported.

Trump in a tweet said that the opinion has turned against the “Rigged Witch Hunt” because “the public understands that there was no Collusion with Russia.”

“Public opinion has turned strongly against the Rigged Witch Hunt and the “Special” Counsel because the public understands that there was no Collusion with Russia (so ridiculous), that the two FBI lovers were a fraud against our Nation & that the only Collusion was with the Dems,” Trump tweeted.

Trump’s tweet comes shortly after Rudy Giuliani in a New York Times interview stated that public opinion over Mueller’s probe is moving toward Trump “big time.”

“Nobody is going to consider impeachment if public opinion has concluded this is an unfair investigation, and that’s why public opinion is so important,” Giuliani told the newspaper.

Giuliani also said that the President would only agree to interview with the special counsel if Mueller had proof that the President had committed a crime.

Trump and his GOP allies in Congress are regularly saying that Mueller’s probe is biased against him.

Mueller’s probe has entered its second year of investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 presidential election.

A poll last month found that 36 percent of voters viewed Mueller’s probe in a negative light, an all-time low. Twenty-three percent viewed the investigation negatively in a July 2017 poll.

Meanwhile, prosecutors working for Mueller in a new filing released on Friday claimed that the special counsel will present evidence that a bank executive allegedly helped Paul Manafort to obtain more than $6 million in loans as he attempted to secure a position in Trump’s campaign.
