On Wednesday, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh responded to special counsel Robert Mueller’s brief press conference, which he said was a call to Congressional Democrats to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
“He begged ’em to impeach, he gave them the green light,” Limbaugh said of Mueller. “He said ‘that’s what you people have to do, I can’t do it because I don’t have any evidence.'”
Limbaugh asserted, “Robert Mueller made it clear as a bell today that he wants to nail Donald Trump, and he wants Donald Trump out of office, he just doesn’t have the evidence – and so he’s asked Congress to take over the job.”
“This investigation was not an investigation,” said Limbaugh of Mueller’s lengthy and costly probe. “It was an attempt to reverse the election results of 2016, it was an attempt to imply the guilt of the president.”
From Fox News:
“Robert Mueller made it clear as a bell today that he wants to nail Donald Trump and he wants Donald Trump out of office, he just doesn’t have the evidence. And so he’s asked Congress to take over the job,” Limbaugh said Wednesday on his radio show.
“He kept talking about how guidelines, regulations in the DOJ prevent the indicting of a sitting president. They can’t do it. So, what was the purpose of this? Why do this investigation at all if from the very beginning you could not nail the president?”
“If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that,” Mueller said. “We did not determine whether the president did commit a crime.”
Limbaugh emphatically claimed that the point of the Russia investigation and today’s statement from Mueller was to hurt Trump’s reputation with the hope of “reversing” the 2016 election.
“This investigation was not an investigation. It was an attempt to reverse the election results of 2016. It was an attempt to imply the guilt of the president and that attempt to imply the guilt of the president continued today with this shameful performance of this guy and his eight-minute statement,” Limbaugh said.
The radio host also accused Mueller of implying to congress they should impeach the president even though Mueller could not find any evidence and said it was all part of an “attempted coup” to take down the president.
“He begged ’em to impeach. He gave them the green light. He said that’s what you people have to do. I can’t do it because I don’t have any evidence,” Limbaugh said.
“This was a phase today in the still-happening attempted coup to get rid of the president of the United States.”
