Skip to comments.The Swamp Wants to Impeach Trump and Overturn the Election — All Based on a Bogus Investigation!
Posted on 12/05/2017 12:01:51 PM PST by Kaslin
RUSH: Reiterate that point. I really have to reiterate, because to me it is crucial. It is, well, crucial. Yeah, key. Its very important to understand this. Greetings, folks. Great you have to here, Rush Limbaugh revved and ready for yet another three hours of broadcast excellence right here behind this the Golden EIB Microphone at the distinguished and prestigious Limbaugh Institute for Advanced Conservative, anti-media, and Anti-Leftist Studies. The curriculum keeps expanding. No graduates, no degrees, the learning never stops. The telephone number if you want to join, 800-282-2882. The email address, ElRushbo@eibnet.us.
First things first. Want to go back to me on this program back on November 22nd, 2016. I want to go back about 13 months because everybody and correctly, by the way, everybodys correctly say that what Mueller is now aiming at is impeachment, not collusion. There was never going to be any collusion charges because there wasnt any collusion.
And this is what steams me about all of this. Everything that were dealing with every day here, its actually Trump and his people dealing with it, but we are, too, because its an attack on all of us. Its an attempt to deny our votes. The Washington establishment is attempting to overturn a duly constituted legal election, because they dont like the outcome. And they are stopping at nothing.
Mueller is now subpoenaing Trump bank records from Deutsche Bank because Trump took out a lot of loans to build real estate projects, something like $300 million, and theyre gonna try to find some irregularity there that has nothing to do with Russia and nothing to do with collusion and nothing to do with the election and nothing to do with Trumps campaign. Literally nothing.
So 13 months ago we had a call yesterday, How did you know about Brian Ross? How did you know? Why were you so confident to tell us that the Brian Ross report that Trump, as a candidate, had told Flynn to call the Russians, how did you know that it was not true? Cause I know these people, folks. I know them. I know the left. Its been a lifelong study of mine, and the study has included learning it sufficiently well to be able to explain it to others.
Last November, were not even three weeks out from the election, November 22nd, 2016.
RUSH ARCHIVE: The Drive-By Media is going to be devoted to getting Trump out of office. Not just bottlenecking his presidency and not just ruining it, their objective is going to be I dont care whether its impeachment, resignation, I dont care what. Theyre gonna do everything they can to destroy his presidency. And if they cant force him out of office, the next thing theyre gonna do is make sure that he fails at everything he wants to do. Theyll do this for a bunch of reasons, among them and at the very top of the list, I think, is so they can prove to themselves they can still do it.
RUSH: Now, that claim is about the media. The swamp is not doing it to prove to themselves they can do it. They already know they can. The swamp is doing it just to do it. The swamp is doing it because they just refuse to accept the results of an election.
We are so far outside the United States Constitution right now, folks, that its serious. Mueller, the FBI, none of these people are behaving according to the Constitution. Theyre all acting outside it. They have to. Theres no legal reason to disqualify the election. Theres no reason whatsoever to claim the election was fraudulent.
The only thing they can claim is that they dont like Trump; Trump is unfit; Trumps not one of them; Trump poses a threat to their lifetime of work and devotion to establishing the United States, not as the lone superpower in the world, but nothing more than a single nation among all nations operating under a global umbrella that does not seek to believe nor promote the concept of American exceptionalism. Thats not exclusively a liberal view, although all of them hold it, but Washington establishment types look at it in much the same way.
Look at this. If you think that thats nuts, heres a headline from Bloomberg: Europe to Weigh Whether U.S. Tax Cuts Violate Global Trade Rules European Union finance ministers will discuss U.S. legislation to slash taxes at a meeting in Brussels Tuesday and whether the new plan violates international trade rules.
Well, okay, fine and dandy. The problem here is that there are going to be a number of Americans who will agree with that premise. The centerpiece of the tax bill that passed the U.S. Senate over the weekend is a reduction in the corporate tax rate to 20 percent from 35 percent. The bill still needs to be reconciled, between the House and Senate.
The Spanish Economy Minister Luis de Guindos said, There are some elements of preoccupation some discriminatory measures and the possibility that some parts of the reform will violate World Trade Organization rules. I will request the commission to make further analysis of the potential consequences of the tax plan.
And you know whos gonna be joining this clown in the World Trade Organization? Everybody you can think of in the Democrat Party. And the Democrat Party might even be so bold as to cite this as a reason why this tax bill should fail. Pelosis already out there claiming its Armageddon. And the only reason its Armageddon is because she doesnt like the corporate tax rate reduction, and she doesnt like the concept of the American people being allowed to keep more of what they earn.
You know what else I like about this? Just as predicted, the elimination of the deductibility of state and local taxes from your federal income tax return has residents in Illinois, in New York, and California screaming like stuck pigs on an animal farm. They are beside themselves. Its unfair! Its not right! Theyve had this big tax deduction because these states are high tax rates, high income tax rates, and theyve been able to deduct that from their federal return. Meaning U.S. taxpayers have been subsidizing, essentially, taxpayers in California, New York, Illinois, Connecticut, other such high tax places.
Now theyre screaming like stuck pigs. These are the people who have been running around for years accusing the rest of us of not paying our fair share. While they have been subsidized. And now once they are faced with the concept of paying higher taxes, which is what they claim everybody needs to be paying, these are the people that are for every tax increase comes down the pike except when it hits them. And now when they are being called on to pay their fair share, guess what happens? They run around and they whine and they moan and complain.
The World Trade Organization wants to weigh in on the American tax system and claim that it may violate trade regulations, international trade regulations. And, as I say, they can do what they want. The problem is gonna be there are gonna be several the Democrats and a lot of Washington establishment types which will point to this, say, See? This is bad for the world. Were being an irresponsible global partner, they will say, we are being selfish. We cannot do this to the rest of the world. We must remain on par with the rest of the world. We cannot be better. We cannot be exceptional. We cannot leave. No way. Unfair.
My prediction is right, it wont be long before this European Union squealing will be cited by some in the media and on the left as reason to oppose the tax bill thats now winding its way through the House and the Senate.
Now, back to the establishment here and impeachment of Donald Trump, back to November 22nd of last year, it was perfectly clear to me what was on tap. They were gonna impeach, theyre gonna render impotent whatever they could do, but the dream was to get rid of Trump. The dream back then was to get rid of Trump.
And Im telling you, folks, all of them, not just the media, everybody that lives and works and breathes thats in the establishment, the swamp, gets up every day and hopes and dreams that that day is the day that the incontrovertible evidence is produced that forces Trump out. And they have so immersed themselves in this illusion that it has become their reality, and it guides them.
Now, obstruction of justice or lying to FBI investigators, both of those things are process crimes. To me, this is one of the most important points of all of this. Both of those that theyre now aiming to get Trump on, Flynn with lying to investigators and hoping Flynn can point them at ways to get Trump, and now Trump supposedly obstructing justice, these are both process crimes, meaning they have nothing to do with the stated purpose of this investigation. They are things that are happening because of the investigation. And if there was no investigation, there wouldnt be any of these process crimes.
So the investigation gives us all of these so-called crimes. But what is the investigation? Its a scam. Its a total sham. The investigation is rooted in the false allegation that Trump and his team colluded with Vladimir Putin and the Russians to change the election, to cheat Hillary Clinton out of her victory. That is what got all of this started. And that is bogus. There was no collusion. After a year of thousands of people trying to find evidence, there isnt any. The only evidence has been made up by the deep state, by the intelligence community.
Christopher Steele writing the Trump dossier, for example. All of it is made up. There was no collusion. Therefore, this investigation which is causing paralysis of a presidency, or its attempting to which is ensnaring people in the commission of crimes, is entirely unjustified. This special counsel was impaneled in violation of Justice Department regulations. Those regulations require there to be a crime to have been known to have been committed, and the special counsel is then charged with investigating that crime.
When Mueller was impaneled and charged, he was not told of a crime because there isnt one. He was effectively told to go find one, which is what hes doing and the only crimes he can find are the crimes that have occurred as a result of his bogus investigation. None of this thats happening Flynn lying to the FBI, Trump supposedly obstructing justice, none of this would have happened had there not been a fake, bogus, totally corrupt investigation of something that didnt happen. And, furthermore, they know that it didnt happen.
They know there was no collusion with Russia. They know that the collusion with Russia occurred with Hillary and her campaign and their law firm purchasing and commissioning, if you will, the Trump dossier. The collusion occurred between Hillary Clinton and Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz to rig the Democrat primary against Bernie Sanders. The Russians tried to hack both party computer networks, succeeding in hacking the Democrats.
The Democrats refused to let the FBI investigate, and now we know why. It didnt matter. The FBI wasnt there to find any dirt on the Democrats! The FBI is there to find dirt on Trump! The FBI is there to protect Hillary! The FBI is there to protect the Obama legacy, the Obama administration. The FBI is there for one reason: To get rid of Trump. Not the agents. Im talking about the people running the place. Im talking about management. Im talking about Comey, McCabe, and some of these other people were now learning about.
But, folks, I really Im hell-bent on making this point: The last 12 months of this investigation have all been the result of a bogus scam, and that is supposed collusion between Trump and Russia. There isnt any evidence. Nobodys ever had any. There was no reason to impanel a special counsel to look for any because no crime has been found even today, despite thousands of people in the deep state trying to make it look like a crime or collusion did happen.
Therefore, all of these process crimes crimes that have supposedly occurred (supposed crimes that have supposedly occurred during the course of the investigation) would not even have happened. We have an illegitimate event (the investigation) an illegitimate setup (the investigation) which still then caused Comey to be fired. It has caused the tarmac meeting between Clinton and whats-her-face out there, Loretta Lynch. All of this all of this that has happened has been to secure the election of Hillary Clinton.
And when that failed, despite You look at this as a seesaw and look at how out of balance it was. Look at the disadvantages Donald Trump overcame, the disadvantages Donald Trumps voters overcame. The full-fledged power and the projection of that power by the Washington establishment still could not get Hillary Clinton elected. And that will not stand. The establishment launched everything it had, and it failed, and, Hells bells, theyre saying. Were gonna get it back no matter what.
So we have a phony investigation, which now leads to all of these process crimes, which would not have occurred at all if there hadnt been this bogus investigation. I dont know how else to say it. I wish there were a more powerful way to say it. Perhaps there is, but, you know, I ad-lib everything. I dont plan all of this and script it out before the program begins. Perhaps on this I should have. But I think its pretty clear. Were living in the Twilight Zone. Obstruction of justice?
Obstructing the investigation of something that didnt happen and that the investigators know didnt happen, and so now theyre looking for other crimes that are not even related to what this original investigation was about? And notice how everybodys fallen in and plays along. Its like establishing the premise. The premise: Trump cheated; Trump stole the election and worked with the Russians. Okay. We accept the premise, and now everybody behaves accordingly. This investigations been a lie. This investigations been a fraudulent, phony baloney, plastic banana, good-time rock n roller thing from the first day it began.
RUSH: Do you remember Scooter Libby? Remember Patrick Fitzgerald? Patrick Fitzgerald was the special counsel who was charged with finding out who had leaked the name Valerie Plame. She was a CIA agent. Im not gonna get into what kind of agent, whether she was genuinely outed or not. Thats not the point. Pat Fitzgerald, special counsel out of Chicago, was charged with discovering who it was that outed her and thereby violated security and put her life at risk along with the CIA. The problem is, everybody knew who had leaked her name!
His name was Richard Armitage.
He worked at the State Department.
He was a close confidant of Colin Powell.
Richard Armitage leaked her name to the columnist the late and great columnist Robert Novak, who wrote about Valerie Plame being a CIA agent. He did not out who leaked her name to him, but it came to be known that it was Armitage. It didnt matter. Pat Fitzgerald proceeded to scorch the earth with multiple interviews of Karl Rove, attempting to entrap him in a process crime. Rove was called in to answer questions I cant tell you how many times. You couldnt count em on one hand.
Scooter Libby, who was in the office of Vice President Cheney, was called in numerous times. And Scooter tripped up. He ended up telling two versions of a story in his multiple interviews, and here we go: Process crime! Lying to investigators! Lying to the special counsel! Lying to the FBI, and Scooter Libby was sent to jail. Even though everybody knew that it was Richard Armitage who had leaked Valerie Plames name and despite everybody knowing that it was Richard Armitage they still went after Scooter because the objective then was to get George W. Bush.
They tried to frog march Karl Rove out of the White House in handcuffs and leg irons, and then they went to Scooter Libby. It was the most amazing thing. And people, friends of Scooters, said he had never done thing. Hed never broken a law. Hed never taken a rubber band and killed an ant with it as a kid. Hed never had magnifying glasses and fried ants as a kid like we all do. He didnt even do that. And they get this poor guy on something that had nothing to do with outing Valerie Plame.
He might have spread the name around after it was already known, but he was not the leaker. So Libby got prosecuted for a process crime for lying to the FBI. This was another one of these investigations that really wasnt necessary because we already knew who the leaker was. It was Armitage over at the State Department. But nobody disliked him. He was a ranking member of the establishment. Well, that takes us now to Michael Flynn. The thing about Flynns supposed lies is that he was not lying to cover up a crime because nothing he talked about with Kislyak was illegal.
And how we know this? Because hes not been charged with committing any illegal act. Hes been charged with lying to the prosecutors again. Hes been charged with telling conflicting stories. Flynn was not lying to cover up a crime. Nothing he talked about with the Russian ambassador was illegal. Flynn had to know that his conversations were being taped and transcribed because he would know (as the former head of the DIA) that the Russian ambassador would be subject to ongoing telephone surveillance.
His wires were tapped. Thats pro forma, and everybody knew it, and it was perfectly fine. Its accepted policy. You wiretap foreign agents when theyre in your country. You get a FISA warrant; you do it. And thats how Flynn got entrapped. Hes talking to Kislyak, who was the subject of the surveillance. So Flynn didnt even They have a transcript of the call, and the Washington Post in January of this year did a story saying that they didnt discuss sanctions. They didnt discuss anything. He did nothing illegal.
So in any case, the bottom line is that Michael Flynn had no criminal intentions when he was talking to the Russian ambassador, and yet he was prosecuted by the same people who did not prosecute Hillary Clinton because she had no criminal intentions. Hillary literally did break the law! Hillary literally did skirt all kinds of regulations and laws with her private email server. She was passing classified data back and forth through an unsecured server in her basement. Comey said, We couldnt find any intent, and no reasonable person would bring a charge.
No reasonable prosecutor, he said, would bring a charge. Flynn did not break the law, didnt intend to break the law. But the same people who gave Hillary a pass because she had no intent, nail Michael Flynn. And we now know that this clown, this Strzok guy who conducted the interviews with Hillary Clinton, did not record them, did not put her under oath and furthermore, allowed personal assistant Cheryl Mills to actually be called a lawyer for the purposes of granting attorney-client privilege when Cheryl Mills should have also been under investigation.
Cheryl Mills and Huma Danger both lied about when they first learned about Hillarys servers, theres documentary evidence from their emails that they lied, and they were not prosecuted. Patrick Fitzgerald ordered Richard Armitage to be silent, to not say a word about anything he had done from the start, because he wanted to use the witch hunts to bring down Cheney and Rove. They were all aiming for Bush. And its the same thing here.
So we have precedents. We have experience with this: A bogus special prosecutor investigation to find the leak of a CIA agent when we already know who the leaker was. Now we have the investigation of process crimes against Trump for obstruction of justice and Michael Flynn and whoever else they can ensnare on the basis of an investigation that is hoax, bogus, and fake because none of it ever happened. There was no collusion between Trump and the Russians, and I think everybody knew that from the get-go.
I think it served as the purpose and it was intended to sway public opinion, and it was intended to allow the public to accept the idea that there needed to be an investigation. Once that began, then anything they find, why, all we have to do is act shocked and disappointed and surprised. Can you believe poor Flynn? Can you believe it? And this was a long overdue attempt to justify what in truth is an inside-the-Beltway/Washington establishment effort at a silent coup to overthrow a duly constituted/elected president: Donald Trump.
Thats whats been going on for the last year. Thats all it is. I dont mean that to say its a minimal thing. But thats all it is. Its not an investigation. The Russians did not affect the outcome of our election. This is also an insult to the people that did vote. Its a sideways attempt to say that the people who elected Donald Trump were idiotic and stupid and didnt know what they were doing and that their votes, therefore, dont count. Were in a dangerous era here, folks, where the powers that be in the upper levels of our government are acting outside the Constitution.
Theyre acting outside the rule of law, which is the glue that is supposed to keep us from becoming here average, run-of-the-mill, tinhorn dictatorship banana republic. All of these years weve had honorable people who amazingly so accepted and obeyed the Constitution. Its actually kind of amazing, in over 230 years, that we havent had somebody come along and try to rip it up. Its amazing weve had a sense of honor. Im not saying we havent had people who have tried. Im not saying we havent had presidents who acted outside it.
But we havent had what we have now. I also got emails last night: You gotta turn on Hannity! Youve gotta turn on Hannity! Youre coming up on Hannity! I said, What? Yeah, youre coming up on Hannity! This is after Id been told on turn on the football game. It was about 9:10, 9:12, last night. So I turn on Hannity, and theyre in a commercial. So I wrote back the person that flashed me, Well, I missed it. Its in commercial. No, no, no, youre coming up. Oh, okay.
So the commercial break ends and the Hannity show resumes, and theres no me. Finally, Sean promotes that Im coming up. I said, A-ha! I need to tune in about two minutes before the program ends. Thats what theyre holding it for. Well, it was about 10 minutes, but they used a clip of me on the program yesterday to set up a guest appearance by Cory Lewandowski and David Bossie, who have a book about the inside Trump campaign.
And while I was waiting for whatever they were gonna do with me, I actually thought that the clip they would play I had no idea, but I thought the clip they would play would be the point that I just made, cause I made it yesterday too, that all this all this process crime stuff, the obstruction of justice and Flynn lying to the FBI Do you realize, folks ? I really beside myself on this. (sigh) None of this would ever happened. None of its legitimate, if you ask me, because the investigation thats caused all this is illegitimate and has no basis.
But it is happening and these events are taking place as a result of it. But, man, is it an orchestration. Anyway, Mr. Newt was on, and Mr. Newt said, I dont think I fully appreciated until this evening how really important it was for Trump to win the election. If Hillary Clinton had won, none of this would have surfaced. Bingo! No question about that. Thats exactly what the swamp was counting on. The swamp, the establishment was counting on Hillary winning so that none of what we now know about Hillary and the fake Trump dossier and Hillary and the email servers and Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch
None of this, we were supposed to know. Because if Hillary had won the election, none of this would have been brought up. There would have never been a story about colluding with Russia. Never! Certainly not with Hillary in office. Our election would not have been tainted. It would have been clean and pure as the wind-driven snow. There would have been not one negative word written about the sanctity of the election. Thats just another way of illustrating to you how bogus this is.
In fact, this was not played up the Russia collusion angle was not played up before the election because they all thought Hillary was gonna win, and they did not want to taint her victory with any news about how the Russians were trying to affect the outcome. But when Newt says, I dont think I fully appreciated until this evening how really important it was for Trump to win, I think thats a TV statement, cause I think Newt knows.
I think Newt knows exactly whats going on. I think Newt knows as well as any of us what is happening with our government inside the Washington establishment. I dont think hes shocked by any of this. Well, maybe he is. I think certain people probably could be shocked, because theres a certain amount of respect that is automatically accorded to ranking members of any leadership. Maybe he is a little shocked by it. Im not and I dont mean this as a swipe to Mr. Newt, so dont anybody try to start anything here.
But Im not surprised by any of this. Im not shocked. In fact, predicted it, as I have so demonstrated with playing audio sound bites of me from the Grooveyard of Forgotten Sound Bites. Now I must take a brief time-out. Theres much more on this clown Strzok and what he did, and the Wall Street Journal has just a killer editorial today demanding that Mueller resign, that Mueller is tainted maybe more than Trump or anybody else, and its really standout because the Wall Street Journal up to now has been leading the Never Trumpers.
RUSH: Now, I want to illustrate to you the power of the Washington establishment, the allure, the power of the swamp. The story I just told you about Patrick Fitzgerald and the bogus investigation into who leaked Valerie Plames name, which sent Dick Cheneys aide, Scooter Libby, to jail, attempted to do the same thing with Karl Rove, while exonerating the real perpetrator, Richard Armitage.
Those very people today would still choose whatever the swamp wants and does over what Donald Trumps policies are. Its a powerful club and membership is highly valued. And even if the swamp targets you, and even if the swamp nails you, you never betray the swamp.
So when Trump comes along and you think its payback time, Im gonna vote, Im gonna support Trump for what these clowns did to me. No. You stay in allegiance to the people that tried to ruin your life and put you in jail. You do not support Donald Trump. That is a powerful club, folks.
RUSH: Latest numbers on the Mueller investigation after six months, $7 million. Do you think if they gave you $7 million and counting, you might be able to find some stuff on whoever it is you hate? If you had the media helping you with another free $7 million thrown in in terms of cost of coverage?
More proof that the swamp is indeed the swamp, and that Democrats are about as ruthless and dishonest as they can be.
Trump is just about our last hope. If he’s illegitimately removed from office, it’s time to water the tree.
You said it, and they can not deny it.
These bureaucrats, and all who now form "the resistance," are not merely opposing Donald J. Trump, they are attempting to delegitimize and defy the will of "the People" who voted for him.
They sure are arrogant beyond comparison.
Repeating this over and over is getting tiresome. Where is the originality in saying the Democrats/GOPe/media hate Trump and will constantly try to impeach him. By 2018 Trump will be out of reach and by 2020 he will be Washington’s 800 lb Gorilla sitting in the White House in the middle of the Washington swamp.
Thanks, and, for the record, they “surely are” “possessed” too. Try to debate one of their converts, and one quickly understands that logic and the ordinary course of informed debate is impossible. Instead, a “possessed” Progressive cannot tolerate the opinion of another, and will quickly launch into a tirade of groupthink opinions and accusations.
Bottom line; chaos to foment civil war thus dismantling the biggest obstacle they face per their NWO plans. The ultra wealthy ruling elite who are behind the chaos will take to their well stocked isolated protective bunkers and will wait out the carnage. Yeah, they probably have plenty of popcorn too. Good luck to them all because God has revealed His plan and they lose.
Worse than being the “swamp,” these Demonicrats are traitors. Justice will be served in their own trial, conviction, and sentencing to be publicly hanged for giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
1st off, GFY swamp scum!!!
2nd let them run to their bunkers and close the door.
Then We come along behind them and WELD THE DOORS SHUT!!!
Let them ROT!!!
Rush just figured this out?
“Trump is just about our last hope. If hes illegitimately removed from office, its time to water the tree.”
NOW! If Real Americans (NOT AINOs) can just get P!$$ed nuff to ALL FLUSH @ the same time...you know the rest!
Savonarra Swamp Critters!
Dick Gaines @ Planet WTF!
“Mueller is now subpoenaing Trump bank records from Deutsche Bank because Trump took out a lot of loans to build real estate projects”
This is fake news according to Jay Sekulo on the Hannity show.
Mueller looks like he could be on the Munsters.
All I can say is, if mueller and his cronies in congress do succeed in impeaching President Trump,
Getting re-elected will be the least of their problems.
Countries have gone down this road many times before, and that road has always led them to death, destruction, and ruin.
They must realize getting rid of President Trump means the market will crash. Look how they freaked out about the Russia fake news story. Businesses will close their doors, the country will implode. They just like to make people believe they are still relevant.
President Trump is not going anywhere.
And then this will happen to the Swamp. They can leave peacefully or in pieces. This outcome was foreordained long ago:
