According to a survey conducted by TechnoMetrica Institute of Policy and Politics in New Jersey, an overwhelming majority of Democrats want Hillary Clinton investigated over her alleged role in the Russiagate scandal along with her top campaign advisers.

The survey polled 1,308 Americans in January concerning the investigation by Special Counsel John Durham into Clinton’s alleged efforts to manufacture dirt against former President Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, the New York Post reported.

Nearly three out of four of those polled on the explosive investigation believe it is important that prosecutors look into Clinton’s actions in connection to Russiagate. That includes 66 percent of Democrats who have been following the investigation. That number is up 20 points from last October which is very bad news for Clinton’s aspirations of running for the presidency again.

Ninety-one percent of Republicans and 65 percent of Independents also want Clinton to be investigated in the matter.

The Durham investigation has been an extremely slow crawl towards justice but did charge Clinton campaign subcontractor Igor Danchenko for allegedly lying about the sourcing behind the debunked Steele dossier he helped compile against the former president. The document was reportedly a brazen attempt to frame Trump as a Kremlin agent.

The indictment against Danchenko states that the former Brookings Institution analyst completely fabricated the source for the dossier’s most explosive allegations. It was also revealed that he allegedly used a Clinton campaign adviser as a source for the dirt he dug up on Trump. The subcontractor was arrested in October and has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.

Michael Sussmann, the Former law partner of Clinton campaign general counsel Mark Elias, was also indicted in September for allegedly lying about working for the Clinton campaign involving a scheme linking Trump to a Russian bank. He has also pleaded not guilty.

The Sussmann connection took an even darker turn on Friday when Durham stated in a legal filing that he had discovered Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign had a connection to the scandal.

While no direct evidence was offered that her campaign paid a web firm to “infiltrate,” i.e. hack, servers at Trump Towers and the White House in an attempt to tie Trump to Russia, pundits and lawmakers immediately jumped to that interpretation.

Americans also want the Biden family looked into as well, according to the survey. Sixty-eight percent assert that it’s important that Hunter Biden and President Biden’s brother Jimmy Biden are separated from any business that involves the administration. That also includes communicating with the president and his aides about policy proposals or taking any government jobs or contracts.

Seventy-one percent of both Democrats and Republicans agree that Biden’s scandal-ridden relatives should be kept at a distance from the presidency.

There is also bad news for the media in the poll. It found that 46 percent of Americans believe the media has done a fair to poor job when it comes to covering Biden and his family’s alleged influence-peddling and other forms of corruption. Sixty-nine percent of Republicans and 54 percent of Independents give the media a thumbs down on coverage of the Biden mess.

Of note in the survey is that 76 percent of Americans want Attorney General Merrick Garland’s counsel Maggie Goodlander to recuse herself from the Durham probe because of a potential personal conflict that is posed by her husband, Jake Sullivan, the White House National Security Adviser, who is cited in the Sussmann indictment.

“They understand that she can’t be involved in matters related to the probe since her husband played an active role in Hillary Clinton’s campaign,” remarked Raghavan Mayur, president of TechnoMetrica Institute of Policy and Politics.

The former chief investigator of the Trump-Russia probe for the House Intelligence Committee, Kash Patel, commented that Friday’s filing “definitively showed the Hillary Clinton campaign directly funded and ordered its lawyers at Perkins Coie to orchestrate a criminal enterprise to fabricate a connection between President Trump and Russia,” according to Fox News.

“Per Durham, this arrangement was put in motion in July of 2016, meaning the Hillary Clinton campaign and her lawyers masterminded the most intricate and coordinated conspiracy against Trump when he was both a candidate and later president of the United States while simultaneously perpetuating the bogus Steele Dossier hoax,” Patel declared.

Trump compared Russiagate to the Watergate scandal in a statement on Sunday.

“What Hillary Clinton and the Radical Left Democrats did with respect to spying on a President of the United States, even while in office, is a far bigger crime than Watergate,” he asserted. “It will be interesting to see how it was covered by the media and what Mitch McConnell and the RINOs will be doing about it. This is an insult to the Republican Party, but a far greater insult to our Nation.”

Editor’s Note: This story has been corrected to reflect that no direct evidence was offered that Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid a web firm to “infiltrate,” i.e. hack, servers, and the initial reactions are incorrect interpretations of the report.
