The current drama with the FBI and its investigation into President Donald Trump has had unintended consequences.
The American people are losing faith in the system, and according to a new Rasmussen poll, 49 percent of Americans believe that a special prosecutor should be put in place to make sure the Trump and Hillary Clinton investigations were handled legally:
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49 percent of Likely U.S. Voters believe a special prosecutor should be named to investigate whether senior FBI officials handled the investigation of Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump in a legal and unbiased fashion.
Rasmussen also found that it’s not just Republican voters who feel strongly about a special prosecutor but those who are unaffiliated as well:
Sixty-two percent (62%) of Republicans are calling for an outside prosecutor to investigate the FBI, as is a plurality (49%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party. Among Democrats, 38 percent favor a special prosecutor; 40 percent are opposed, but 22 percent are undecided.
The results of the poll indicate that people who are ardent Trump supporters believe an investigation is necessary:
Seventy percent (70%) of voters who Strongly Approve of the job President Trump is doing think a special prosecutor is needed to investigate the FBI. Among those who Strongly Disapprove of the president’s job performance, only 36 percent agree.
Another 50,000 text messages have been found to have vanished from FBI phones and records connected to agents who worked on the Trump and Clinton cases.
Trump called out cellphone maker Samsung directly for this happening Tuesday:
Where are the 50,000 important text messages between FBI lovers Lisa Page and Peter Strzok? Blaming Samsung!

It also became known in recent days that those within in the FBI and Department of Justice allegedly have a “secret society,” and they meet offsite with each other.
It would appear those who would like a special prosecutor to look into these investigations have reason to want that.
