RUSH: Trump Could Appoint Another Independent Council To Investigate Mueller

RUSH: You know Mueller? I’m sitting here thinking about Robert Mueller. We had a call earlier ask, “What could Trump do about Mueller?” There is something Trump could do, and you’re gonna laugh and you’re gonna think this is outrageous; this is crazy. But I like the idea. You know Trump could appoint another independent counsel to investigate Mueller? Now, before you start snickering, there is a period of time where Mueller may have been colluding with Comey before Mueller was named the independent counsel. Who knows? Mueller may have been involved in Comey in leaking certain things.

We don’t know.

But we know that Mueller and Comey are best buds. They’re BFFs, supposedly. It is entirely within the president’s purview. If he wants to investigate the investigator, he can. Politically the reaction would be, “Oh, my God, that’d be crazy! It’d be suicidal!” But if you believe — if anybody believes — that Mueller is not on the up and up here for whatever reason (best friends with Comey, doesn’t like Trump, member of the establishment and wants to protect it), who knows? And if you think that Mueller is conflicted because he knows all these players — best buddies with Comey and whoever — you could theoretically do it.

Trump could name an independent counsel to investigate Mueller for any and everything he might have done, colluding with whoever. Might he have had some contacts with the Clintons, with Loretta Lynch, with Comey, because Comey was involved in all of these other things? And might those discussions then complicate with Mueller’s special counsel charge? If you think there’s bias or prejudice going in, you could certainly find out if Mueller has a clean slate at the start. I imagine a lot of legal beagles hearing me say this are shrinking away and shouting.

“No! No! Outrageous! One special counsel’s bad enough.”

I’m just telling you the president could do it. Whether it’s politically advisable? That’s another thing. But the stakes are pretty high here because the Democrats… Folks, like I said at the beginning of the program: I’m just sensing that there’s a shift in momentum here, and it could be temporary. The media’s a very powerful thing and can help the Democrats recover from whatever mess they get involved in. But you’ll notice, there’s a new wave of Democrats coming up, kind of like the Millennial chapter. This guy from Ohio — Ryan is his name — going after Pelosi. I mean, this wasn’t done!

Pelosi and Steny Hoyer and any of the House leadership? You never made a move on them. It was like making a move on the Godfather; you just don’t do it. But now it’s happening. And there are little things like the Democrats being told to stop this talk of impeachment, Democrats being told, “Back off this Russia thing. There are other things you guys need to talk about. You’re gonna have to start focusing on things that real-world people care, about like their jobs, the economy, and this kind of thing.” The Harvard poll. All of the little things. The scrutiny here… This Washington Post story on Friday?

Believe me, that does not move the ball forward for the Democrats or for Obama. It provides problems. So there’s been a blip here in the momentum, and when you add all this together, the Democrats realize they have some problems. Mueller might be the lone thing they have left to succeed in this coup d’etat against Trump. So if it’s that serious and if you think Mueller’s conflicted — if you’re Trump and you think he’s really conflicted — you can call for a special counsel into Mueller. (chuckles) I would love it. I think, just keep adding special counsels just to show how ridiculous the whole thing.


LIMBAUGH: SHH, SHH… Don’t Tell Anybody. Black Unemployment Lowest In 17 Years Under Trump

RUSH: “Black Unemployment Is at the Lowest Level it’s Been in 17 Years.” Subheadline: Donald Trump is doing what Barack Obama never would. Unemployment among black Americans ages 16 years and over fell to 7.5% in May, its lowest level since December 2000.

“Black unemployment has been on the decline since February — falling from (February) 8.1, (March) 8.0, (April) 7.9, and (May) 7.5%, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Unemployment for black Americans has historically hovered below their white counterparts. The Great Recession drove black unemployment near Great Depression-era levels, reaching 16.8% in March 2010.” That’s smack-dab in the middle of the first term of Barack Hussein O.

“In August 2011, Congresswoman Maxine Waters called the black unemployment rate ‘unconscionable.’” We’ll now be waiting on her comments about how Trump has helped blacks in that regard. Oh wait, Trump’s not gonna get any credit for it, but I’m just pointing out during the Trump presidency black unemployment is at its lowest level in 17 years. It’s one of these you gotta whisper, “Don’t tell anybody. Could really make people mad.”


RUSH: Media Has FAILED To Marshal Public Support For Their COUP D’ETAT

RUSH: You can’t turn on CNN without hearing about this Russia-Trump collusion story. And you haven’t been able to turn on CNN and hear anything about that for seven or eight months now, and in seven or eight months nobody has a morsel of evidence that Trump did anything. For seven or eight months, innuendo, unnamed sources, former officials and current officials, high sources, in deep in the intelligence, nothing, zilch, zero, nada. There is nothing but a promise, nothing more than a promise that we’re gonna get Trump ’cause we knew he’s done something, and if we can’t prove it, we’re gonna make it up, we’re gonna get Trump. And there’s nothing.

This is such a slap in the face of the Democrats, these poll results from Harvard, from Mark Penn, a Democrat pollster, 73% say they’re concerned that the investigations and the media coverage is causing everybody to lose focus on other important issues. Two-thirds say it’s hurting the country. The media has failed to marshal public support for their coup d’etat, is the point, folks. You can’t have, unless you want the military involved, you’re not gonna have a coup d’etat if you don’t have a tremendous amount of public support for it.

Now, I know some of you think, “The Democrats don’t care about that. Media wouldn’t care about that. Get rid of Trump, they’ll deal with whatever happens.” No, at some point the public opinion is gonna matter in this. That’s why they’re doing all this. They’re doing this to create public opinion against Trump. They’re trying to marshal opposition to Trump in the polls. They’re trying to create, just like they did with Nixon, just like they did with Katrina, just like they’ve done with the Iraq war, they’re trying to create an anger within the American public over the election of Trump, over the Trump presidency, his honesty, integrity, and they’re failing. They’re failing at their primary mission.


RUSH: What If Obama Didn’t Stop The Russians Because He Really Didn’t Want Hillary To Win?

RUSH: Folks, let’s play this out. What if there is another possibility here explaining why Obama didn’t do anything? What if, as the story says, Putin was trying to elect Trump — again, I on the record think this is bogus, but that’s what the story said. What if Obama knew Putin was trying to elect Trump and didn’t do anything to stop the Russians because he really didn’t want Hillary to win? Remember people had that theory before the election bandied about as well.



RUSH: Obama Didn’t Do Anything On Russia Because There Wasn’t Anything To Do!

RUSH: Obama Didn’t Do Anything On Russia Because There Wasn’t Anything To Do!

RUSH: So bottom line, Obama hears about all of these efforts and the brave struggle to contain it begins, and Obama meets with experts and advisers. They advise him what to do. Obama gives his own counsel.

At the end of it all Obama decided to do nothing other than call Putin and say “cut it out,” an act of bravery and courage unlike most other in American history. And after telling Putin to cut it out, he then confronted Putin again in China and said, “Stop it or else.” Putin and the Russians quaking away, cowering in laughter at the bravery and courage of Barack Hussein O.

For four months — August, September, October, November — they knew this was going on, as far as this story is concerned, at the end of it all, did nothing to stop it. The story even has that quote from an Obama administration insider saying, “Yep, we choked,” and that’s what Trump is saying. He didn’t choke. Obama didn’t choke. He thought Hillary was gonna win! Trump’s exactly right about this. He thought Hillary was gonna win.

They all did. If they go public with what the Russians are doing, colluding in the election, they’re gonna make it look like that Hillary was benefited by this or that the effort was curtailed and stopped and Hillary won because of it, and they didn’t want to get in the way. They didn’t want to taint Hillary’s victory ’cause they all thought she was gonna win in a landslide. I will submit to you the real reason Obama didn’t do anything is ’cause there wasn’t anything to do, because the Russians weren’t tampering with the election. They were not tampering with the votes, as the Washington Post story again claims. As every story on this subject has had to claim for the last six months, no evidence to suggest.

And Obama even during this period of time, during these four months was telling the people of America, it can’t happen, the Russians cannot successfully tamper with our elections, they’re too widespread, it’s too diverse. There are too many precincts, too many counties, the Electoral College, you wouldn’t know where to go to hack. Obama assuring everybody it couldn’t be done.

This story says Obama was scared to death it could be done, worried very seriously it was being done and decided to do nothing about it. So people are livid at Obama on the left, and that’s gonna be a larger theme going forward as this massive story gets digested by more and more people. But as it gets digested and as more and more people read it and absorb it, it’s going to also be seen for what it is: a giant, big batch of nothing where Trump is concerned. Big batch of nothing.
