Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the press secretary to the White House. She stated that Americans are not interested in discussing the 2016 presidential elections and the alleged involvement of Russians. Despite polls showing Americans desire to have the issue addressed, Sanders informed the media that President Donald Trump would not be party to such discussions, as they are irrelevant to the American people.
Ironically, Sanders refers to the polls saying the lack of desire of Americans in the Russia probe. The same polls are proving otherwise. Trump’s aides dismiss any information discrediting the White House.
The ABC poll recently carried out by the Washington Post, reveals that about 49 percent of the American population feel that Donald Trump tried compromising the Russia investigation. The move could be deemed as obstruction of justice. Moreover, 26 percent of the respondents think there is concrete evidence that Trump did compromise the investigation. Many Americans fear that if Russia interfered with the 2016 presidential elections, chances are there that future elections may also be compromised. Improper performance and questionable campaign have marred Trump’s presidency.
Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is the one leading the Russia probe. He came in the limelight in June for investigating obstruction of justice by President Trump. Donald McGahn, the White House Counsel, threatened the president with a possible resignation if forced to fire Mueller. The white house officials have come out boldly, on several occasions, to deny any involvement with Russian officials.
