Mueller indictments: Russian agents targeted Colorado in plot to sway election to Trump

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is said to be near the end of his probe into whether Donald Trump's campaign worked with the Russians to sway the 2016 presidential election.

Coloradans want a full measure of what Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation found during nearly two years of investigating Donald Trump's relationship with Russia.

Public Policy Polling  on behalf of left-leaners ProgressNow Colorado and Protect the Investigation  surveyed 543 registered Colorado voters between March 7 and March 8.

According to a press release about the poll, 77 percent of voters expect "a full, public report" on the investigation's findings. The Justice Department, under President Trump, will determine how much of the report is submitted to Congress and, by association, the public.

The liberal groups said the poll indicated 57 percent "believe that the Special Counsel investigation has already uncovered crimes by associates close to Donald Trump."

The automated phone poll yielded 86 percent agreement with the statement that “no one is above the law, not even the president of the United States, and the American people deserve to know if President Trump or anyone in his inner circle committed crimes, obstructed justice or threatened the rule of law.”

Ian Silverii, the executive director of Progress Now, called on Colorado Republican Sen. Cory Gardner to take a stand in defense of the report. Gardner is up for re-election next year. 

“Colorado voters deserve to know what the Mueller investigation turns up, and we’re counting on Sen. Gardner to protect the investigation and help us know if President Trump or anyone in his inner circle committed crimes, obstructed justice or threatened the rule of law,“ Silverii said in a statement.
