The “coup attempt,” as President Trump has described it, centering on the now-debunked claim that his campaign colluded with Russia, originated with one person, contends radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh.
And that sole figure is none other than Hillary Clinton.
He explained on Tuesday that H.A. Goodman, in a column in the Federalist, put the pieces together.
Limbaugh said that “every bit of everything we know or think we know – every news item, every little bit of information that fed this narrative the past two years or three now, that Trump colluded with Russia – came not from American intelligence, not from British intelligence. It didn’t come from FBI intelligence.”
“It came from the Hillary Clinton campaign,” he said.
First, there was the Steele dossier, the political opposition research document she “commissioned and paid for.”
He said that among the foot soldiers of the campaign against Trump were fired FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan.
”I actually believe – and I’m kind of slapping myself upside the head for not putting this together sooner, and maybe some of you out there did. I actually think that the architect of all of this is Hillary Clinton, that Hillary Clinton is responsible for this coup – and then people like Comey and others in the Obama administration. … It’s hard to separate Obama and Hillary. But this was a Hillary bought-and-paid-for, led-by operation. And it incorporated the Obama DOJ,” he said.
“But they were all doing what they were doing for her! The first thing they had to do was exonerate her from doing something illegal with her email server and trafficking in classified data and then the Uranium One thing,” he explained.
So Comey did “exactly” that.
“After that, the project became, ‘Make sure Trump doesn’t win, make sure Hillary does. And when that didn’t happen, it was focus efforts on somehow getting rid of Trump. But the point is that all of this. … Some of you might say, ‘No, Rush! It’s Obama.’ Yeah, I think Obama’s. … You can’t take him out of this because all of this happened while he was president,” Limbaugh said.
After all, Obama appointed the heads of the FBI, the CIA and other agencies.
“But this was a Hillary Clinton-inspired, motivated, bought-and-paid for operation, everywhere you look in this thing. McCabe’s wife got money from the Clintons and her campaign in Virginia. Steele paid for by the Clintons. Weissmann (Mueller’s guy) was on stage with Hillary during her concession speech and was a big donor. Alexander Downer, the Australian ambassador that supposedly nails Papadopoulos? These people are all part of the Clinton Foundation or the Clinton campaign.”
He said many people may have thought Clinton was “minding her own business” during her campaign.
“And that’s not who Hillary Clinton is. We know who she is. We know who she’s always been, and this is exactly the kind of operation Hillary Clinton always mounted when her husband was in the White House. She was always a humongous left-wing activist. In fact, when Bill Clinton was in the White House they played the roles.
“Bill Clinton played the moderate, middle of the road guy ’cause he had to get the votes. He had to get the votes from both sides. But she was the ideologue. She was the radical activist. She always has been. You add that her nose was way out of joint because she lost and she’s got sour grapes,” he said.
Limbaugh believes Clinton had the Democratic primaries rigged against Bernie Sanders and likely thought the general election was hers to take.
“All that had to happen was the election had to take place. It was a guaranteed, automatic Hillary win because they didn’t take Trump, seriously. They thought there’s no way this guy can win,” he said.
“She didn’t even go to Wisconsin or Ohio or any of the states because it was just Trump, he had no hope, and she believed all their polls that showed her winning in a landslide.
“You talk about sour grapes and sore loser, this nation is paying the price for the most cheated-on woman in America being in a perpetual state of PMS or however you want to describe it.”
Limbaugh said, “I mean, everybody involved in this has a tight relationship with her or her foundation or her husband, donors, board members, you name it.”
The author of the anti-Trump dossier, former British spy Christopher Steele, “went to the FBI to get an investigation started and then leaked the existence of the investigation, with the hope of sinking Trump’s presidential aspirations.”
“On its face, it is arguably the most devious political dirty trick in American history and one of the most overt intrusions of a foreigner into a U.S. election,” he said. “Screw Russia. How about Steele? You want to talk about foreign intervention in an election. … Christopher Steele, a British spy who went out and was fed phony items of intelligence by Russian spies that were friends of his, and that’s what made up the Steele dossier.
“Trump didn’t do any of the collusion. Hillary did, with Steele. The foreign collusion was Hillary and Steele using Russians,” he said.
