Rush Reveals the Real Russian Scandal–44.47gh.,b72,12-3
Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh dedicated a large segment of his program to explaining the Susan Rice part in RussiaGate. When all this is over and said and done, it will not be President Donald Trump who will have a problem. The home for all of this dirt will be in the Obama administration, with Susan Rice being the centerpiece of the scam. There is a felony here just looking for a home.
Rush Limbaugh dedicated a large portion of his first hour on Monday to unpacking the “blockbuster scandal” blown open Monday morning by Bloomberg‘s Eli Lake. In a bombshell report, Lake revealed that Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice had repeatedly requested information regarding members of Donald Trump’s transition team in part to unmask their identities to people at the top of the Obama administration and outside of the intelligence community.
In addition to proving that Rice lied when she said last month that she knew “nothing” about any Trump associates having been caught up in incidental surveillance, Limbaugh stressed, it proved that “the real scandal here” is not Trump colluding with Russia, for which there still remains zero proof, but that the Obama administration “weaponized politically our intelligence agencies” against Trump.
“The real scandal here,” said Limbaugh, “is that the Obama administration weaponized politically our intelligence services against the Republicans and against Trump.” The real story is not about Trump and the Russians, but about the Obama administration’s illegal use of the intelligence apparatus to target political opponents (hyperlink added): Obama White House unmasked people who were not targets of legitimate surveillance and investigation. We know now that the Obama White House illegally leaked protected information. And, by the way, we knew this long ago. The media is our source. The Drive-By Media reported all of this. We know that there had to be unmasking. We know that there had to be leaking. The media proudly told us that sources who could not be identified, blah, blah, blah, blah, fed them data. We know now that the media was complicit. And here’s a little detail. Mike Cernovich reports in his story on all this today that Maggie Haberman at the New York Times has known for two days that Susan Rice was behind the unmasking and sat on it to protect President Obama.
This revelation, said Limbaugh, is not surprising. “The Obama administration weaponized everything else to use against the GOP, from the IRS to NOAA to any of these agencies, EPA, involving climate change.”
Limbaugh also made the point that the premise of the Democrats’ central accusation against Trump is fundamentally flawed. If Vladimir Putin and his agents wanted to take down Hillary Clinton so badly, why would they endanger Trump’s candidacy by involving him?
LIMBAUGH: Remember, James Comey testified the Russians just wanted Hillary to lose. So why would they involve Trump in their scheme? The Russians know their calls are monitored by U.S. intelligence agencies. Why would they risk their effort to defeat Hillary by colluding with Trump’s people? If that had come out before the election, she would have won for sure. In fact, everything that was known today has been known for quite a while by people in the intelligence community, by people at the FBI.
Limbaugh later elaborated on his point that the establishment media deliberately sat on the “blockbuster piece of news.” Not only did Rice know about the surveillance, which she publicly denied, she “was instrumental in this.” After all the rumors that the NSA had a “bombshell” about Russian intelligence, we learn that they did in fact have a big reveal: “it was Susan Rice who was requesting that all of these Americans incidentally caught up in foreign surveillance be unmasked, and it has to be agents of the Obama administration (which we know instinctively) who were leaking all of this to the media.”
