“There is all kinds of evidence to show that the Clinton campaign worked with Russians.”
A Rasmussen poll released Monday surveyed American voters on whose campaign – President Donald Trump’s or former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s – they think was more likely to have colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential campaign.
According to the poll, 47% of likely voters think Clinton’s campaign is more likely than Trump’s to have colluded with foreign operatives. In comparison, 45% of respondents feel the Trump campaign is more likely to have conspired with Russia.
Broken down by party affiliation, 71% of Democrats suspect Trump more, while 73% of Republicans suspect Clinton colluded.
The poll comes on the heels of the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference. Mueller’s probe cleared the president and his associates of colluding with the Kremlin.
Meanwhile, Clinton’s 2016 campaign has faced renewed scrutiny in recent weeks.
In mid-March, Ukrainian authorities opened an investigation into the possibility that top officials within the Ukrainian government tried to interfere in the 2016 US election on behalf of Hillary Clinton.
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-O.H., a member of the House Oversight Committee, recently said he believes there’s evidence that the Clinton campaign may have colluded with Russian operatives.
“What I know is there is not one bit of evidence to know any type of coordination, collusion, conspiracy whatsoever between the Trump campaign and Russia to impact the election,” Jordan said during an appearance on “Meet the Press.”
“There is all kinds of evidence to show that the Clinton campaign worked with Russians to impact the elections, via that whole thing I just described where they fired the law firm who hired Fusion, who hired Christopher Steele, who communicated with Russians, and put together the fake dossier,” Jordan continued.
