President Trump has never hesitated to articulate his thoughts on the Mueller investigation. Since its inception, Trump has maintained that the probe is useless, baseless, and politically motivated. Referring to the probe as a “hoax” on multiple occasions, Trump moreover claims that he never colluded with the Russian government. Like the president, Trump supporters have also dismissed Mueller’s long-term probe into supposed collusion.
Left-leaning Americans overwhelmingly view the Mueller probe favorably. In addition to championing the probe, liberals have also claimed that it has merit and ought to continue.
Only time will tell whether or not the Russia investigation is close to reaching its end.
