Insightful commentary from the most consequential voice in radio history, Rush Limbaugh.
In a recent interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, Limbaugh explained how special counsel, Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s dealings with the 2016 election, is all about shielding Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama from being prosecuted for their efforts to undermine Donald Trump’s campaign and presidency.
Limbaugh summed it up this way, saying the purpose of the investigation has always been about one thing:
“It hasn’t changed from the get-go. It is about protecting Hillary and Obama. Obama is the primary person being protected here, because all of this spying and all of his collusion to destroy Trump happened with his knowledge and probably encouragement. And the reason Hillary isn’t charged is because that would mean Obama would have to be exposed as participating in the scheme too.”
Chris Wallace: You say that the real scandal here is the effort by the Clinton campaign and the Obama administration to try to sabotage candidate Trump and now President Trump.
Rush Limbaugh: Oh, there’s no question about it. And if you look at this indictment – and I’ve had people say, does this mean that Hillary could be indicted – or Fusion GPS? No, because this indictment doesn’t charge anybody with with collusion. It says they’ve defrauded the United States with mail fraud and wire fraud and you can’t get the Fusion GPS or Steele people. The real collusion.
And there’s no question about this. This is a paid political opposition research document that was made to look like legitimate intelligence. It perhaps was used to defraud the FISA court. The real collusion…
Chris Wallace: You’re talking about the dossier, the Steele dossier here?
Rush Limbaugh: Steele dossier. And pretty much everything that they’ve used. I mean in every story… I was on this program one year ago, one year ago, and I told you that this whole thing that Trump colluded with the Russians was bogus, that there was never going to be any evidence for it and did not happen. Every news story about it since then has included that, just like this indictment right here. No allegation in the indictment that any American was a knowing participant, nor is there any allegation the scheme affected the outcome of the election…
I think this is all politics and it’s – Chris, it hasn’t changed from – from the get-go. It is about protecting Hillary and Obama. Obama is the primary person being protected here because all of this spying and all of his collusion to destroy Trump happened with his knowledge and probably encouragement.
