A growing number of Democrats believe former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton should be investigated over her alleged role in the 2016 Russiagate scandal, according to a new survey.
“The survey, by TechnoMetrica Institute of Policy and Politics, found 75% of respondents who follow the story think Clinton and her campaign advisers should be investigated for her role in so-called Russiagate, according to several news reports,” Just the News reported.
“Among them, 66% are Democrats – a 20-point rise from last October when the same question was asked,” the report added.
The news comes as filings by special counselor John Durham revealed in court last week that Mrs. Clinton’s campaign hired a tech company to tap into the servers at Trump Tower to “find or manifest” links with Alpha Bank in Russia. The goal was to take Trump down by creating a narrative that connected him to Russia, an enemy of the U.S.
The information also became public as speculation swirls regarding Clinton’s potential as a 2024 presidential candidate. You know it’s bad for Democrats when the rumors are for the sitting president to be primaried, and not by the vice president, but by the previous candidate who lost to the last Republican president in office.
It looks like Democrats are setting themselves up for failure, claiming Clinton would have a better chance against Trump in a repeat battle in 2024. But with the new information of her campaign spying, how could she make a credible run?
Even with the mainstream media and leftist megadonors on her side, the truth is just too much for her to seriously consider herself a real contender against Trump or any other candidate for that matter.
But you never know with Clinton. She’s the one Democrat who just won’t go away. She wants to be president so badly that she is willing to break the law to win based on the later reports. Her thousands of mysteriously disappearing emails also hint at the kind of actions she has been willing to take to protect herself in her ultimate quest for the White House.
With a loss to her own party under Obama and a loss to Trump in 2016, she had previously suggested she was out of politics for good. But whether she meant it or not, Clinton has been back in the mix, whether at fundraisers for other Democrats or speaking to media about the latest attacks on conservatives.
All signs suggest she’s seriously looking at another run, whether in 2024 or even 2028. But the new report could end it all, especially as many in her own party want her investigated over it. Chances are high she’ll fight her way out of trouble, but Americans will remember the scandal if she does move forward for another run in politics.
If successful among her own party, she could end up in another battle against Trump, but this time the public will know about the Russiagate scandal in advance. Whether it will make a difference or not will be based on whether Americans show up to vote and whether justice prevails in investigating the latest Russiagate information.
