RUSH: I have a question. Its an open-ended question to which there are answers, but I just want to ask them. If we think back to all of these media leaks and stories that there have been, from Lets just say since the election. Weve had stories indicating a serious investigation of the Trump campaign and its ties to Russia. Weve had unnamed intelligence officials IC, intelligence community officials saying this or that or the other thing. Theyre unnamed. Its the Washington Post, New York Times, CNN.
And, of course, the three networks ABC, CBS, NBC breathlessly reporting that this investigation is underway, that there are members of the intelligence community who have come across things so distressing that they have sought out media people in order to take the veil off of all of these things. The New York Times on January 19th and 20th ran two different stories. The story on the 20th had the headline wiretaps, wiretapped evidence, Trump campaign, Trump transition. We know there were wiretaps because, as I was just discussing, General Flynn was picked up talking to the Russian ambassador.
And you get back to, Well, who ordered all of this? And remember there was a New York Times story, the headline of which was: Obama Administration Rushed to Preserve Intelligence of Russian Election Hacking. Well, up against that we have Obama in March of 2016 and a couple of times subsequent to that later on in the year, pooh-poohing the idea that the Russians could have hacked the election, and on one of those occasions, Obama even chastised Trump for complaining about it.
Hey Obama tried to act like the seasoned veteran and Trump is the neophyte rookie and they said essentially, Hey, youre in the big leagues now, boy. You dont start complaining about things. You go out and win the election. Dont start complaining about things. You just run your campaign and try to win. He was pooh-poohing Trumps effort, he thought, to create excuses. So clearly, there was an investigation going on, and it did involve wiretaps, if we are to believe the New York Times and the Washington Post. All of these things reported in the mainstream media. None of them were made up by Trump.
And I remember each one commenting on it that day as they happened. And then Trump says that he has been wiretapped at Trump Tower, and every one of these news sources these papers and cable news networks reacts with righteous indignation, denying it, claiming it never happened, its ridiculous, its absurd. And I remember thinking, Well, how can this be? How can there have been no investigation? Because this is what they were saying. When Trump alleged that he was being wiretapped, the reaction from all of these mainstream media news sources who had reported essentially that
Not that hed been wiretapped, but there was investigation. They were all denying. What does Trump think? Hes not under investigation! This is absurd. This is paranoia. Who does this Trump guy think he is? So my very naive question is, Well, what was being investigated if Trump wasnt? Because when Trump threw out that claim that the New York Times printed and that he claimed that the Obama administration had tapped the wires at Trump Tower, is what he said, the immediate denials that were forthcoming were denials not just of the allegation that Trump had been wiretapped and that Trump Tower had.
But that Trump was silly and paranoid for thinking that there was an investigation anyway. And I remember being literally flabbergasted because the people saying this had spent the last three months reporting on it. Not an official investigation, mind you. But rather leak after leak after leak that constituted a media investigation. It was clear that the media, which is the Democrat Party, was looking for evidence. That is an investigation, whether its officially sanctioned or not. There was an investigation being conducted by numerous people to try to find any incriminating evidence on Trump.
And yet when Trump claims he was wiretapped, they denied it and acted like Trump was an idiot. I remember thinking at the time that Trump had just thrown a little grenade back at em and had forced them to admit that everything that had come before that constituted this unofficial investigation, had just kind of blown up and that the people who were running it had been tricked or panicked into saying there wasnt such an investigation. Now, we come to today, where Comey says there is an ongoing investigation of collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign, or an investigation of the Russians effort to undermine our election or what have you.
So just what are they investigating? If Trump was not and is not being surveilled and, by the way, everybody is making tracks as fast as they can. Today in these hearings, everybody couldnt wait to get to a microphone to say, in their own words, that there is no evidence whatsoever that Donald Trump had been wiretapped. None! Its silly. Its absurd. Comey said no evidence. Admiral Rogers at the NSA said no evidence. Every member of the House intelligence committee: No evidence. Both parties: No evidence.
People cant wait to humiliate Trump, embarrass Trump and say, Nope, he was not being surveilled. Well, how can that be? If there is an investigation, how can Trump not be part of it? What are they looking at, then? Is it Manafort? Is it Roger Stone, Carter Page, these former Trump campaign people that worked for him for a couple of weeks back last summer? And Comey says (paraphrased), Well, I cant give you the details. I cannot discuss ongoing details of an investigation. I can only admit that this is taking place because the Department of Justice has authorized me to break department policy this one time.
Because it is so crucial and its so important that this is one of those times that the Trump administration, the Department of Justice, has authorized me to tell you that there is an ongoing investigation of the Russians and Trump campaign or the Russians and interfering in American elections. My point here is, folks, I think that so much of this is literally about nothing. The FBI, anybody can have an investigation open and nobody ask a single question for months.
But there have been all of these contradictory statements, like Obama Rushed to Preserve Intelligence of Russian Election Hack. What intelligence? How did they get it? If Obama was hurrying here to preserve intelligence of the Russians hacking the election, what intelligence? That means theyve got some evidence. It would imply or we would infer they have some evidence here. And yet nobody has any, no matter where you go.
In every one of these media stories the last three months of last year up to the present, in every one of these stories with all of this damning information from these nameless intelligence people, buried in every single story in either the Times or the Washington Post is a small, little paragraph reminding everybody that despite everything in this report, investigators have still found no evidence of any collusion. Its just been a bunch of supposition that has been reported and designed to look like mountains of evidence have been produced and is being cataloged and is being prepared for dissemination, when there isnt any.
How is it that every aspect of this investigation has leaked except for the real evidence? With as much leaking as has gone on here, if there were evidence, that Trump and Putin or Trump and the Russian ambassador, Trump and anybody in Russia had actually colluded, dont you think that would have leaked as well? Because everything else has.
And you know as well as I do that if any of these actors on the Democrat side, if they had even a morsel of evidence to support what all of this is supposedly about, collusion between the Russians and somebody to hack the election, dont you think that would have leaked, because everything else has. And yet it hasnt. So there is an investigation, but then there wasnt, and now today there is again.
Now, Comey says there is today, but the media and all of these intel sources, when Trump said he was being wiretapped, they all practically in unison, No! Thats ridiculous. Who does he think he is? Theres no investigation of Trump! Trump wasnt wiretapped. Theres no investigation of Trump. We havent found any evidence of collusion in six months. And yet the investigation is ongoing with no end in sight.
So if there is an investigation, what is it? What specifically and they cant tell us that. Comey specifically said, Well, I cant get into these details. I want to re-ask another question that I asked, which I think is a key to this. The Russians hacked the election, right? Everybody believes that now as much as the sun comes up every morning, do you not? Thats been in the news so frequently, its been in the news for such a long period of time now, and there havent been any denials of it.
If you landed from Mars and opened a newspaper, you would find out that the Russians hacked the election. What was the hack? Does anybody know? What was the hack? No, no. Im not asking rhetorically. Im asking specifically, what was the hack that affected the election? What about the election did the Russians hack? And in all of these stories that have been with us for months, no specific answer to that question has been given. What suffices for the answer is Podestas emails. Yeah, the Russians hacked, thats right, Rush, thats right, Russians hacked Podestas email. Except that they didnt.
The e-mails of John Podesta ended up being made public because he mistakenly succumbed and fell to a phishing attack. Its still a hack, Rush, its still a hack. No, its not. Its not a hack. Nobody got into his computer until he let them. He opened the front door to his computer by clicking a specious link in an email.
Has the mainstream media found a single voter who voted for Trump instead of Hillary because of what they saw in WikiLeaks? Has the mainstream media found a single voter who said they voted for Trump because of what they know the Russians did? Has the mainstream media found a single voter who said they voted for Trump because they were victims of the Russian hack? No.
But Ill tell you what the media has found. In a tradition of media fake news, the media went to Nashville, Tennessee, and they have found two people who voted for Trump who claim theyre disappointed. A classic Drive-By Media story, disillusioned Trump voters. Its in the Stack that I was planning on getting to today til this hearing stuff blew up.
So, again, what investigation, of who, if its not Trump? And if its not Trump, why are we even doing it? And this whole notion of undermining American elections, were doing a better job of that with all of this that the Democrats are doing combined with these hearings than anything the Russians theoretically even wanted to do, much less did.
Were undermining our elections with this charade known as these congressional hearings today. And what was the hack? What was the hack that turned this election around from a Hillary win to a Hillary loss? What was the hack? They havent told us. They havent identified it.
So under Obama, security was so lax that the Russkies were able to waltz right in and hack our election? So whose fault would that be? Who was running intelligence back then? Who was the Boss?
Democrats have been undermining our country for far too long. Joe McCarthy had his political and personal life destroyed when he proved many Democrats in our federal government in the 1950s were selling us out to the Soviet Union. It’s ironic the Dems are trying the Russian angle to bring down a president today. McCarthy had plenty of proof of the Dems collusion with the Soviets then unlike the Dems who have nothing but hearsay and innuendo to smear President Trump in the present.
The Russians apparently tried and failed to undermine our elections, so the Democrats are apparently trying to succeed where they were not able to do so. If the goal of the Russians was to undermine the confidence of the American people in their election system, who is it that is actually trying to make that perception a reality?
That you Rush?
Quoting yourself again?
They have been since at least 1960 when Kennedy stole the election from Nixon.
So the Russians are registering as Democrats now?
The soup thickens. What’s next for them, take control of California?
If commies took control of California, how would we tell?
So you are saying it a fait acompli? Good point.
