Trump quotes Rush: Mueller's team 'ought to be in jail'

February 19, 2019

President Donald Trump leveraged the opinion of talk radio host Rush Limbaugh on Sunday to suggest that investigators on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team should be facing prison terms for a political cover-up.

'These guys, the investigators, ought to be in jail. What they have done, working with the Obama intelligence agencies, is simply unprecedented,' trump tweeted, attributing the words to Limbaugh, the nation's most listend-to radio host.

'This is one of the greatest political hoaxes ever perpetrated on the people of this Country, and Mueller is a coverup,' he continued, citing Limbaugh by name. The radio host said something similar on 'Fox News Sunday.'

Mr. President, a similar situation is happening to great US citizens sitting in jail today, falsely accused, they are Paul and Gennady Babichenko, Philip Zodhiates, Todd Engel and others — while you are defending yourself, come to the defense of these great men.

Limbaugh cited the case of Andrew McCabe, the former deputy FBI director who said this week in a CBS News interview that he knew of Justice Department discussions about using the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to remove Trump from office.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, McCabe said, 'raised the issue and discussed it with me in the context of thinking about how many other cabinet officials might support such an effort.'

Limbaugh could hardly contain himself.

'These people are unelected. They took it upon themselves to overthrow the election results of 2016,' he said, 'ignoring the potential real collusion and conspiracy between Democrats and Russians to undermine the Trump candidacy and the Trump presidency.'
