A slight majority of voters say last week's indictment of Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer  Allen Weisselberg  is politically motivated, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds.

Fifty-one percent of registered voters in the July 2-3 survey said the move was politically motivated while 49 percent said prosecutors uncovered criminal behavior.

Weisselberg pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges including tax fraud, conspiracy, grand larceny and falsifying business records. Prosecutors say he helped orchestrate a scheme to compensate himself and "other Trump Organization executives" with unreported income for years.

Seventy-five percent of Republican voters said the indictment is politically motivated, and 25 percent said criminal behavior was uncovered.

Seventy percent of Democratic voters said the move was due to criminal behavior being uncovered, while 30 percent said it was politically motivated.

Among independents, 51 percent said the indictment was politically motived while 49 percent said criminal behavior was uncovered.

The most recent Hill-HarrisX poll was conducted online among 926 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 3.22 percentage points.

Because the Laws and rules are already stacked totally in these J bags' favor, so after Trump's lawyer brought his bullshit business practices to light,we should just let them slide....WHY AGAIN ? Cause we little peopel HAVE to pay our share, but alleged BILLIONAIRES shouldn't, nor should the loop hole seekers, they should get to keepers all their not hard earned doe, and again YYYYYYY is what i would like to know, can you please tell me so, or what ?

I think you mean give trump enough rope and he'll do it every time. the numbers on his dual ledgers have no political affiliation. I look forward to watching the trump crime family turn on each other. like rats turning into cannibals.

Lol ..... shysters like Hillary and Biden make Trump look like a rookie in that regard.   Plenty of libtards to fill their coffers and then pontificate about how the other side is much worse.

Hilarious!

This proves is that 49% of voters polled still have rampant TDS. 

Of course this is politically motivated. The Democrats need Trump in the headlines to deflect from Biden and their loser agenda. They also have to keep the pressure on to ensure Trump is no position to run ever again. 

The "This time we have him for sure!" crowd will never let Trump go. It is all the Democrats have left.

His former attorney stated he inflated worth of Real Estate when convenient for collateral etc., then deflated worth when it came time to pay taxes. Is that not "wrong doing" in your eyes Vic ?

He violated campaign finance Laws when Cohen paid off Playmates and Pornstars, as the "Art of the Deal" doedoe gets a piece of ass for $130,000 a pop, but hey, that's some expensive art, no ? But hey, Trump didn't have to pay, his campaign did i believe, but you know all of this already, but you'll defend this POS till the end of time, and that's so sad, can't make it (sound alike)

Has any financial institution that you have ever dealt with ever taken your word on property value?

That is ridiculous.

Banks wouldn't be in business long if they did that stupid thing.

Does the IRS not have to take his word, or is that the reason Trump has been under audit for a few decades ? Cause if there are two sets of books, WHY would you NOT want this investigated...?

Of course this is politically motivated.

Trump called himself The Law And Order president so now he can see what happens when you break laws.

And 100% of those polled haven't seen the evidence and weren't part of the Grand Jury so their uninformed opinions are worth less than a bucket of spit.

It's not about the crime or evidence it's about the reasoning behind the investigation in the first place. Everyone knows what prompted the investigation, it was a politically motivated witch hunt looking for anything they could use against him.

Question. Even if it was politically motivated, would that be reason to ignore any crime?

Even if it was politically motivated

A technicality like that was enough to get a monster like Bill Ayers off. We don't allow political prosecutions, or we didn't before Muller.


 would that be reason to ignore any crime?

Again - What is the crime?

Legally yes but not the crimes committed whoever initiated the investigation. It's just not legal to target political or personal enemies this way.

Eh, I still don't buy it was totally political. Hasn't the company been looked at before he was president? Even his father was in court for discrimination. He has been a crook for a long time.

Exactly, it's like a mob boss who has been scrutinized for financial crimes for decades get's into politics and then claims any investigation is now "politically motivated". Trump University, sued, lost, fined. Trump Foundation, sued, lost, fined. The current host of litigation other than this criminal tax evasion case include: E. Jean Carroll Defamation and Federal Tort Claims Act Litigation , Summer Zervos Defamation Suit , Mary Trump Fraud Litigation , Panama Hotel Fraud and Tax Litigation , Doe v. The Trump Corporation Class Action , DC Civil Suit over Misuse of 2017 Inauguration Funds , Bennie Thompson Incitement Suit for Jan. 6 Capitol Attack , Eric Swalwell Incitement Suit for Jan. 6 Riots , Capitol Police Suit for Jan. 6 Riots , NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund Voting Rights Case for Post-Election Actions , DC AG Incitement Criminal Investigation , Fulton County, Georgia Criminal Election Influence Investigation 

He's not under investigation because of politics, he's under investigation because he's a fucking criminal weasel who has used his daddy's money to avoid jail time for decades.
