During a segment on FOX News Sunday this weekend, Rush Limbaugh suggested that Obama is the person Democrats are really trying to protect in the Russia probe. He said Hillary wasn’t prosecuted because that would have led back to Obama eventually.
Here’s a partial transcript via Real Clear Politics:
LIMBAUGH: Well, in the Flynn — I’m glad you bring that up. In the Flynn episode, we have learned sense that the people that conducted the interview with Flynn, Peter Strzok, did not believe he lied. A number of other people in the FBI did not believe Flynn lied. And yet Flynn’s under indictment, cops a plea for lying…
LIMBAUGH: Maybe he wasn’t told — well, because they had run him dry. His family was being destroyed. His — his financial net worth was destroyed. He was being broken. He had to — he had to stop the bleeding.
The question was, what was Flynn told by the FBI, by James Comey? Was Flynn told by the special counsel — by the way, the FBI does not believe he lied in their interview, in your interview with them. That seems to me to be crucial. And the new judge in this case I think is going to take that up.
So I — I — I think this is all politics and it’s — Chris, it hasn’t changed from — from the get-go. It is about protecting Hillary and Obama. Obama is the primary person being protected here because all of this spying and all of his collusion to destroy Trump happened with his knowledge and probably encouragement.
WALLACE: All right.
LIMBAUGH: And the reason Hillary isn’t charged is because that would mean Obama would have to be exposed as participating in the scheme too.
