Rasmussen: Voters Want to Move On From Clinton Investigations

Posted: Nov 16, 2016 12:45 PM

The 2016 presidential election is over, but investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server and Clinton Foundation corruption are ongoing. 

During an interview Tuesday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz told Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson the congressional investigation into Clinton is far from over and isn't ending simply because she lost the White House. 

"We have to get to the truth. It was was never about a political targeting of Hillary Clinton. She created one of the biggest security breaches in the history of the State Department. We still have tens-of-thousands of documents we still haven't seen, there's more than Hillary Clinton involved in this, you have dozens of people within the bowels of the organization," Chaffetz said. 

But according to a new Rasmussen Report, the majority of the country wants to move on.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 41% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the Trump administration should continue to investigate Clinton and her closest aides for possible criminal activity, but 52% think it should end any such investigations.

Nearly two-out-of-three Republicans (65%), however, feel the incoming GOP administration should keep investigating Clinton and her closest aides. Seventy-eight percent (78%) of Democrats want it to end those investigations. Voters not affiliated with either major party are almost evenly divided.  

Apparently Clinton losing the race for the presidency was punishment enough.
