Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh slammed the two-year long Russia witch hunt and exposed a major lie that had Special Counsel Robert Mueller likely very upset.
During a segment on his show late last week, Limbaugh slammed Mueller for his statement regarding whether or not President Donald Trump had committed obstruction of justice during his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Limbaugh called such a statement an “abomination” of the U.S. justice system and speculated whether the entire investigation was nothing more than an attempt to help Democrats impeach Trump.
Limbaugh noted how Mueller said he “could not make a determination” regarding whether to charge the president with obstruction and questioned why he even carried out the two-year probe then if he believed he could never charge Trump.
Limbaugh put Mueller on blast for this obvious lie.
How about this? ‘If we had confidence the president clearly did commit a crime, we would have said so.’ That’s the way it’s supposed to be. ‘If we had evidence the president committed a crime, we would have damn well said so.’ It’s not, ‘If we had confidence the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so.’ That’s not what the job is. And then he goes on to say we couldn’t have indicted him anyway because of Justice Department guidelines,” Limbaugh began.
Limbaugh continued explaining the sleight of hand Mueller pulled off.
“But then this next: ‘We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime.’ Well, go tell that to Jerry Nadler and Elizabeth Warren and the rest, ’cause they sure as hell think that you have. ‘We did not make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime,’” Limbaugh continued.
Limbaugh concluded, “Yes, you have! You have done everything you can to imply that he did and that you just couldn’t find it! That’s what makes me so livid. This guy in his righteousness sitting here saying that, ‘We did not make a determination as to whether the president committed a crime.’”
“Beyond department policy, which is the Office of Legal Counsel guidelines, we were guided by the principles of fairness.” Ha. What an absolute crock. There hasn’t been anything fair about this from the moment it began! “It would be unfair to potentially accuse somebody of a crime when there can be no court resolution of the charge.”
That didn’t stop you from charging the Russians! They’re not gonna get their day in court because you can’t get them extradited, and you knew they weren’t gonna come face your charges. That’s why you could charge ’em with anything. You could charge them with blowing up human feces in San Francisco, and they wouldn’t come face the charges because Russia wouldn’t indict ’em.
Prosecutors are not in the businesses of “exonerating,” Limbaugh said, arguing that the special counsel’s team presumed Trump was guilty before the investigation ever began.
Mueller said he could not exonerate Trump, but then published a 400-page report stating that there was no evidence of collusion or obstruction — which exonerates the president.
But by using coded and vague language, Limbaugh said it looks like Mueller’s team may have laid the groundwork for Congress to keep investigating the president.
