Although President Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed this week that he has been “totally exonerated” by Attorney General Bob Barr’s summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, a new poll released Friday shows that the majority of Americans are highly skeptical.

The latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds that just 36 percent of Americans think that Barr’s letter has completely cleared Trump of any wrongdoing, whereas 56 percent believe there are still questions that still exist about the Trump campaign’s activities during the 2016 presidential election.

While the majority of Americans said they believed Mueller had conducted a fair investigation, they said that a four-page summary of a report that reportedly spans over 300 pages is not enough to end the debate.

In total, just 18 percent of respondents said that Barr’s four-page summary of the Mueller report was sufficient, while 75 percent of respondents said they wanted the entire Mueller report made public.

Overall, Trump’s approval rating in the wake of the conclusion of Mueller’s investigation stands at 42 percent, which is up slightly from the 39 percent who approved in the previous NPR poll.

Rudy Giuliani's election fraud hearing went off the rails Wednesday evening as one woman monopolized the comments section with a series of rants.

“That poll book is off by 100,000!” claimed the woman. “Why don’t you look at the registered voters on there? … what was the turnout rate, 120 percent?”

Some speculated if the woman was intoxicated while others wondered if she'd been using Gov. Rick Perry's "smart glasses" as a talking stick. One Michigander explained, however, that some people in the state simply talk that way.

Published

The military spending bill is coming up for a vote in the "Lame Duck Session" but the two major things President Donald Trump wanted aren't happening now.

Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe was walking through the halls of the U.S. Capitol with the president on speakerphone again, this time telling him the bad news about the bill. Inhofe was caught by reporters in a Capitol Hill restaurant several months ago loudly talking to Trump on a speakerphone. In that call, he promised Trump that there would not be name changes to Confederate bases.
