On his nationally syndicated radio program host Rush Limbaugh said special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation “cannot have any credibility” if it continues to ignore Hillary’s misdeeds while going after President Donald Trump.
The man behind the “Golden EIB microphone” told his audience Wednesday that the Mueller “investigation is absent of all credibility” because it specifically ignores what happened on the Hillary side referencing the handling of her secret email server during her time as Secretary of State. “The investigation cannot have any credibility if it ignores the other side of this,” said Limbaugh.
Limbaugh addressed the recent conviction of former Trump Campaign Chair of Paul Manafort and allegations against former Trump attorney Michael Cohen arguing these allegations and convictions prove that the investigation is a witch hunt. Limbaugh went on to label the investigation as “one of the biggest hoaxes.”
“Now, if you’re thinking, “Well, Rush get off that, because it’s way too late for that. The investigation’s underway.” I know. That’s the point. It’s been underway for a year now, but I’m sorry, folks. I can’t get past that this is such a hoax, it is one of the biggest hoaxes. Trump says it’s a witch hunt, and they say these allegations and convictions of Manafort and Cohen prove that it’s not a witch hunt. No, they don’t! In no way do they prove this is not a witch hunt. In fact, they go, I think, further to establishing that it is.”
Limbaugh further addressed the conviction of Manafort slamming the investigation as “bogus” and arguing that Manafort would’ve never been pursued by anybody had he not worked for Trump:
“Paul Manafort would not have ever been pursued by anybody had he not worked for Trump. Paul Manafort would not be on anybody’s radar, certainly not Mueller’s, if he hadn’t worked for Trump! You’re never gonna talk me out of thinking this is bogus, and you’re never gonna talk me out of thinking and believing that it has zero credibility, because actual criminality, actual violation, serious violations of law, serious damage to our electoral system, serious collusion, the Democrat National Committee colluded with Hillary to deny Bernie Sanders the Democrat nomination.”
