Robert Mueller released a 400-plus-page special counsel report after investigating for nearly two years Democrats’ claims that the 2016 Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the election.
It turns out there was no collusion. And even though he stacked his investigative team mostly with supporters of Hillary Clinton – many even donated to her – they were unable to refer obstructions charges either.
But now a whole new chapter is opening.
Mueller, despite having told the American public that his report was his testimony, is scheduled to testify Wednesday before two House panels.
Democrats appear desperate to make him say what they want, said talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh on Monday, asserting Reps. Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff, the Democratic chairman of the committees, have been on TV over the weekend “lying.”
“Jerry Nadler went on TV this weekend and said that Mueller found evidence of collusion! And Adam Schiff is out saying that Mueller has named or has essentially identified Trump as an unindicted coconspirator. In what? There aren’t any charges! Nobody has been charged in the Mueller investigation with collusion,” he pointed out.
“There is no conspiracy. How can anybody be an unindicted coconspirator in something that has not been conspired? These people are just lying through their teeth. Nadler chairing his committee and little Pencil Neck is gonna chair his committee. There’s even talk that they’re gonna ask Mueller to actually read the portions of his report.”
Limbaugh said it’s just the Democrats “conjuring a sentence or a line here that Mueller can utter that the media can then take sort of like a pull quote and portray is as something new.”
It’s hard to get around the conclusion from Mueller that there was “no collusion,” he said.
In fact, Republicans are expected to grill the former special counsel on when he came to that conclusion.
“How long did Mueller keep his investigation going after he knew there was no collusion? Now, as far as I’m concerned, Mueller took the job knowing there was no collusion, there never was any,” he said. “There was never any evidence for collusion, folks. I hate to be beating the drum here again, but this is all gonna be coming back front and center on Wednesday so it’s not bad to have a little primer here.”
Limbaugh said “the whole thing was bogus.”
“The Steele dossier is all they ever had, and it has never been corroborated or verified because it was all made up. It was bought and paid for political opposition research from the Hillary Clinton campaign. There was never any evidence,” he said.
The dossier was a compilation of salacious claims about Trump compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele and funded by the Clinton campaign.
The Obama FBI used the bogus, campaign-funded document as evidence to obtain warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.
Limbaugh said, though, there was a reason for Democrats to keep the investigation going, even after knowing there was no collusion.
Their aim was to trap Trump figures into making false statements to investigators, resulting in criminal charges.
“This was a coup from the get-go. It was a gotcha from the get-go. It was an attempt to get Trump to reverse the election results of 2016,” he said.
Nevertheless, he said, the Democrats “can’t let it go. They want to bring it back. They want to incite impeachment.”
