Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh is now urging President Trump to order the U.S. Justice Department to probe “the real criminal activity” and “actual felonies” committed by Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee and members of the Obama Justice Department in connection with efforts to change the outcome of the 2016 race for president.
“Something needs to happen to these people. They cannot be allowed to get away with this,” Limbaugh said on his national broadcast Wednesday.
“There ought to be an order … Trump should do it. He should order the DOJ to investigate all of these Obama people, from Bruce Ohr to [James] Comey to [Rod] Rosenstein. All of them need to be investigated, all of them need to be charged, all of them need to have exposed the lengths they went to to undermine a presidential election.”
Limbaugh said the whole purpose of the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been to cover up the “real” scandal, “which is the collusion between the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Obama Department of Justice and intelligence community people who were running a silent coup based on literally made-up evidence, made-up facts, made-up charges – fake news, if you will – to try to get rid of Donald Trump, to run him off out of office.”
“It was a scam to cover up Obama’s corrupt FBI and DOJ leadership, and how they covered up Hillary Clinton’s massive corruption and criminal behavior, and how the media led the effort in this silent coup,” he continued.
“They had to cover up the actual felonies committed by Hillary and Obama, CIA, DOJ, FBI, [James] Clapper and [John] Brennan and all that.”
Limbaugh said the Mueller probe then was used “to leak a bunch of lies about Trump’s business and private life as they attempted to get rid of him, as they attempted to undermine and overturn the election results of 2016. That purpose of that investigation was to provide an invisible source of lying leaks while covering up the real criminal activity that was occurring in the Hillary campaign, the DNC, the Obama DOJ, and all of that.”
NBC News reported Tuesday the Senate Intelligence Committee, after two years and more than 200 interviews, “uncovered no direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to both Democrats and Republicans on the committee.”
Trump’s former attorney John Dowd said this week he doesn’t even expect Mueller to issue a report on any Russian collusion.
“I won’t be surprised if he doesn’t,” Limbaugh opined.
“If it’s not made public, then the media’s gonna want to know what it says! The interest is gonna ratchet up. They’re gonna ignore that there’s no evidence found. The media cannot report that! The media’s got to try to keep this alive ’cause they’re still gotta try to get rid of Donald Trump somehow. So get ready for a brand-new round of leaks, supposed leaks. What it’s gonna be is more lies about what’s in the report.
“And New York Times and the Washington Post, NBC, CBS, ABC are all gonna say things like, ‘Sources tell NBC News that Robert Mueller found’ blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. ‘No confirmation was immediately forthcoming, but the evidence is clear that there might have been, could have been … No evidence yet, but there might have been … ‘ And they’re gonna continue leaking like they have been leaking since before Trump was inaugurated. And they’ll leak on the basis the fact that nobody’s gonna ever see this report, so nobody will ever know that the leaks are a bunch of cr-p.”
