Suffolk Political Research Center Director David Paleologos believes the shift in public sentiment is thanks to Trump's very persuasive communication skills.
President Donald Trump talks to reporters as he departs on travel to OH from the White House, March 20, 2019. He is also reportedly not cooperating with document requests from House Democrats who are investigating him, his family, his business and his associates with official congressional probes.
Though Mueller's office has said nothing publicly about the timing of a report, several prosecutors detailed to Mueller's team have left in recent months, suggesting the investigation is winding down.
It's a striking role reversal. Trump said. "It's called the Mueller report".
"One scenario would have seemed downright implausible until recently", the AP reported.
That report, experts say, is unlikely to be revealed in the raw - it could have confidential data on people not charged, as well as top secret information on sources.
"Wow! A Suffolk/USA Today Poll, just out, states, '50 percent of Americans agree that Robert Mueller's investigation is a witch hunt", Trump said in a Twitter post dated March 18. Schiff's panel, along with the House Financial Services Committee, is looking into money laundering and Trump's foreign financial entanglements.
It is true 50.3 percent of the poll's 1,000 respondents said yes to the question, Rupar admits. "And that is to tell the country what happened". Under the rules of his May 2017 appointment, Mueller, a former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, is to submit to Barr "a confidential report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions". Those fears still exist, but as the investigation winds down, other feelings have taken hold in the White House, namely a cautious optimism that the worst is over, that no smoking gun has been found. Mueller has not brought any charges of collusion. I think it's ridiculous, but I want to see the report, and you know who wants to see it? They have their report, they had the guy they wanted writing it, and he had the full power of the federal government behind him and they still didn't get the president.
Trump's full response to reporters before boarding Marine One for OH was contradictory at times, with the president saying the public deserves to see the report while adding that it was up to Barr.
