61 PERCENT OF REPUBLICANS THINK THE FBI IS FRAMING TRUMP, POLL FINDS


BY TIM MARCIN ON 5/9/18 AT 3:54 PM


A new poll from YouGov released Wednesday found a majority of Republicans think the FBI is working to frame President Donald Trump amid the ongoing investigation into his connections with Russia.

YouGov asked U.S. adults: "Do you believe Donald Trump is being framed by the FBI and the Department of Justice?"

Sixty-one percent of Republicans responded with "Yes, he is being framed." Just 17 percent said he was not being framed while 21 percent were not sure. Overall, 29 percent of Americans thought that the FBI and Justice Department were working to frame the president. A plurality of 45 percent thought Trump was not being framed while 26 percent were not sure. Perhaps predictably, not many Democrats—just 7 percent—thought the FBI was framing Trump while 78 percent responded no, according to YouGov. Twenty-five percent of independents thought Trump was being framed while 39 percent thought he was not.

The YouGov poll surveyed 1,500 U.S. adults from May 6 through May 8. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

in a perfect world this would go without saying. But, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't take the FBI over a year to frame someone.

An experienced federal judge has confirmed what I have been arguing for months, namely, that the modus operandi of special counsel Robert Mueller is to charge associates of Donald Trump with any crime he can find in order to squeeze them into turning against the president.

This is what Judge T.S. Ellis III said at a hearing Friday: “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort’s bank fraud … What you really care about is what information Mr. Manafort could give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump or lead to his prosecution or impeachment.”

This tactic is as old as Adam turning against Eve. But, as the judge correctly pointed out, it risks the possibility that the squeezed witness will not only sing, he will compose. Here is what Ellis said about that: “This vernacular is to ‘sing,’ is what prosecutors use. What you got to be careful of is, they may not only sing, they may compose.”

Since a judge rebuked Muellers team concerning his investigation, I think people have good reason to doubt Meullers tactics.

Of course they believe that! It goes without saying and I'm surprised the figure is that low.

uh, that's commonly known as a "plea deal" and it's hardly a secret.

Well of course. With the constant stream of fake news they are fed, what else would you expect?
