Schiff: If Mueller Has More Indictments, His Approval Numbers Will Rise

‘The longer the lapse between indictments the more his ratings go down’


SCHIFF: “Well, you know, political — public opinion always affects us in one degree or another. But I will say this, having watched Mueller’s ratings over time, the one thing that we see is around the time he produces indictments, around the time that he produces convictions the support for his investigation goes up. The longer the lapse between indictments the more his ratings go down. So what we’re seeing now, I think, is merely the lull because in the period leading up to the midterms he properly took no action. But I think when he issues his report or if there are further indictments you will see public confidence in his work once again rise.”
