RUSH: You know, I watch these roundtable discussions on the cable news channels. One of the most recently discussed topics, Obama’s interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday in which Obama commented on Hillary and her email server, and he said, “You know, there’s classified, and then there’s classified.” Meaning, there’s secret, and then there’s really, really secret, and Hillary was no big deal. So now everybody’s discussing whether or not Obama gave Hillary cover. Whether or not Obama would try to use the DOJ to influence whatever happens. Was there any doubt about this?
Look, I know they gotta fill time at cable news networks and do roundtable discussions on things, but it’s an open question whether or not Obama would intercede? This president, who is famous for pretending there’s no Constitution whenever it benefits him? People really want to discuss, spend a lot of time, whether or not Obama would intercede or try to influence what the DOJ does with the Hillary Clinton investigation? There’s no doubt in anybody’s mind he would. That’s a hallmark of this Regime.
The hallmark of this Regime is that they do exactly the things that you can’t believe presidents would do because previous presidents haven’t done it. No question in my mind. And I don’t believe anything is ever gonna come of this, even though we’ve heard — you know, there’s a book out there. I’m a gonna get into this this greater detail, but a former White House correspondent for Newsweek has written a book, Kate something or other, and it’s about how Michelle Obama just hates the Clintons, just despises them, and wanted Biden to run and take it to Hillary. So we’ve got that thrown in the mix now. That probably helps counter the idea that Obama would go to the DOJ and ask or demand that they protect Hillary on this email investigation.
But you can’t throw James Comey out of this equation. He really is a guy with impeccable integrity, especially measured against most people in Washington. But the idea that Obama would just stand aside and let events like this unfold on their own, there’s no way. Not gonna take that kind of risk, because as goes Hillary, so goes his Regime in a way. I mean, she was his secretary of state, she’s trafficking in this stuff, and who knows what is out there that could end up being learned that would not be beneficial. Remember, we’re legacy building time now. It’s library fundraising time for Obama. So there’s a lot at stake.
Anyway, I just had to comment on that because I just remembered seeing the latest roundtable discussion on this, and I think it’s asked and answered, would Obama intercede, fill in the blank, answer is “yes.”
