A new poll shows a jump in Republicans who believe President Trump attempted to stop investigations into his administration and Russia, though that figure is only slightly more than a third of party members.
The IPSOS/Reuters survey published Friday shows that 36% of Republicans believe Trump attempted to obstruct justice, a day after a redacted version of the Mueller report was released to the public by the Department of Justice. A survey conducted last month, also by IPSOS/Reuters, showed that only 27% of Republicans believed at the time that Trump tried to stop investigations into his administration.
The article goes on to state the following:
Mueller’s investigation identified 10 episodes that could be viewed as potential obstruction of justice but did not recommend any further indictments, allowing the Justice Department to make its own determination.
At Attorney General William Barr’s press conference on Thursday morning, Barr said that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein disagreed with some of the legal frameworks used by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team regarding possible obstruction of justice and “felt that some of the episodes examined did not amount to obstruction as a matter of law.”
