A majority of Republicans said President Trump is being framed by the FBI and the Department of Justice, according to a new poll from The Economist/YouGov released Wednesday. When asked if Trump is being framed, 61 percent of Republicans said he is. Seventeen percent said he is not and 21 percent said they are not sure. Trump has in recent months leveled heavy criticism at the FBI and the Justice Department regarding the investigation into possible Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election. He frequently refers to the probe as a "witch hunt" and accuses leadership at the agencies of being corrupt. During an appearance on the "Fox & Friends" morning show last month, Trump threatened to intervene at the Justice Department.

Not surprised. Majority of Republicans thought Obama was born outside the US and was a secret Muslim.

Republicans are not smart people or have a clue what is going on.

When you hate the rule of law and hate the United States, it is very easy to side against the FBI.

Majority of Republicans believe in the Deep State, if I had to guess.

It's because the investigation started with "Trump's collusion with Putin" and is now "Stormy, did the president tell you he loved you?".
