When former President Donald Trump accused the Clinton campaign of spying on him before the 2016 presidential election, most Democrats dismissed the claims.
At the time, they claimed Trump had no evidence to make such a claim. At the same time, they pushed the Trump/Russia collusion allegation, which was commonly covered by news outlets.
But after recent court filings from Special Counsel John Durham, there’s been a sudden shift among leftists.
Last year, Michael Sussman was indicted for “allegedly lying about his work for the Clinton campaign on a scheme linking Trump to a Russian bank,” per the New York Post. Sussman is a previous law partner of Clinton campaign general counsel Mark Elias.
Now, we’re hearing that more people are cooperating with the investigation, and more witnesses may come before the grand jury.
All this has had a profound impact on how Democrats in the country view the former left-wing presidential candidate.
In fact, the Durham revelation has resulted in a 20-point swing that even Clinton likely couldn’t have anticipated. This represents a drastic shift and could impact Clinton’s overall reputation.
Most Democrats think Hillary Clinton should be investigated for her potential role in the Russia collusion hoax, according to a new poll from TechnoMetrica Institute of Policy and Politics (TIPP).
The survey, which polled 1,308 Americans about Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the FBI’s probe of Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia in 2016, found that 66 percent of Democrats think Clinton should be investigated, up roughly 20 points from October when TIPP polled the same question.
Overall, 75 percent of citizens believe Clinton and her campaign advisers should be investigated. This includes 91% of Republicans and 65% of Independents.
The charges are already starting to come down, too.
Durham has reportedly charged Clinton campaign subcontractor Igor Danchenko for allegedly lying about the source behind the Steele dossier, which vainly tried to paint Trump as a “Kremlin agent.”
The investigation continues to make strides, and they all seem to be zeroing in on one conclusion: the Trump/Russia idea was a hoax.
That will take some time to confirm, of course, but in the meantime most Americans are demanding answers.
Trump has never changed his accusations, alleging that Clinton’s campaign spied on him during the 2016 presidential race. He also maintains that he was spied upon even when he was President.
After learning of the latest Durham findings, Trump was quoted as saying the incident is “bigger than Watergate.”
Thus far, neither Hillary Clinton nor anyone from her camp has commented on the report. In the past, they’ve denied any accusations concerning frame-ups and hoaxes.
However, the ongoing investigation could show America very different results, and that could prove hugely damaging in the long run — not only to Clinton, but to the Democrat Party in general.
