Voters Think Congress Should Investigate Lynch Ties to Clinton Probe

Most voters think Congress needs to investigate whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch interfered in last year's FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters think Congress should investigate whether Lynch, President Obama’s Attorney General, sought to influence the FBI’s probe of Clinton’s handling of top secret information in her e-mails. Twenty-nine percent (29%) do not think Congress should launch an investigation into Lynch’s actions, but another 17% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
