Forty-nine percent of voters want a special prosecutor appointed to investigate bias or wrongdoing in the FBI's handling of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, according to a new survey.

Only 31 percent of voters disagree.

From Rasmussen Reports:
Voters think a special prosecutor is needed to see if the nation's top cops have been playing politics.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters believe a special prosecutor should be named to investigate whether senior FBI officials handled the investigation of Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump in a legal and unbiased fashion. Thirty-one percent (31%) disagree, but a sizable 19% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Sixty-two percent (62%) of Republicans are calling for an outside prosecutor to investigate the FBI, as is a plurality (49%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party. Among Democrats, 38% favor a special prosecutor; 40% are opposed, but 22% are undecided.
The only possible argument against this is that some other organization within the government we're already paying could handle the investigation at a reduced cost.

Regardless, the Republicans need to make it happen.

It's time for the investigators to be investigated.
