CBS News poll also shows most US voters have heard enough about the Mueller probe
The majority of Americans want the Democrats to drop their numerous investigations into President Donald Trump and Russian election interference, according to a new CBS News poll.
44 percent of US citizens polled say they want the investigations to continue.
However, 53 percent say they want the Democrats to stop investigating President Trump and move on.
Again, swinging in the president’s favor, 58 percent of Americans polled say they have heard enough about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and report.
Meanwhile, only 37 percent want to hear more information about Mueller‘s Russia Probe.
On Wednesday, Trump abruptly walked out on a meeting with Democratic leaders on infrastructure after he told them he would not cooperate while the investigations continued.
In a surprise White House press conference, Trump blasted Democrats after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused the president of engaging in a “cover-up” shortly before their scheduled meeting.
Trump called for an end to the Dems’ “phony investigations” saying he can’t work with them “under these circumstances.”
The president also singled out House Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), who he described as “an enemy of mine for many years.”
Pelosi and House Majority Leader Chuck Schumer later accused the president of “throwing a temper tantrum” when he canceled the meeting.
These claims were later refuted by witnesses who were in the room at the time, who back Trump’s side of the story that he was “very calm” as he called off the meeting.
Earlier in May, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found that less than half of Americans, 45 percent, wanted the president to be impeached, but even fewer at 42 percent wanted him to escape impeachment.
That was a slight increase in support for impeachment since the previous poll and came after the release of the Mueller report.
Pelosi has said that Trump has given Democrats the grounds for impeachment “every day,” but has been criticized by many in her part on the far left for not already beginning the proceedings to censure the president.
