President Donald Trump has ridiculed special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation as a "witch hunt," but the Democratic-controlled House may bring more hunting, including releasing tax returns.
That move garnered the support of 60 percent of Americans in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, but the poll also revealed a related lack of confidence the hunting will be done fairly.
While impeachment has polled down 9 percentage points since August, with just 40 percent supporting those proceedings, 60 percent support releasing President Trump's tax returns, according to ABC News.
Another the other investigations a majority in the poll support:
- Possible financial ties to foreign governments – 61 percent.
- Trump communications with Vladimir Putin – 59 percent.
- Collusion between Trump campaign and Russia – 57 percent.
Despite the fact there is a majority supporting the continued hunt against the president, confidence those investigations will be fair is far from solid, according to The Washington Post.
"Half of Americans report they have 'just some' confidence or none at all that the Mueller report will be fair and evenhanded, and 43 percent say they have at least a good amount of confidence in its fairness," the Post reported.
". . . And yet a 46 percent plurality suspect Democrats will 'go too far' in their inquiries of Trump, while just over one-third think they will handle it about right."
The poll was completed before former Trump campaign aide Roger Stone was indicted on several process crimes related to Mueller's investigation, including obstruction, false statements, and witness tampering.
The ABC News/Washington Post survey was conducted among 1,001 American adults between Jan. 21-24 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
