RUSH: Mike in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, as we get back to the phones here on Open Line Friday. Great to have you. I’m glad you waited, sir, and welcome to the EIB Network.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush. I appreciate the time to be on your show today, and I just wanted to say, all of us Dittoheads out here who are loyal listeners, we love your show, we love you, and most of all we love our military. In the spirit of Memorial Day, all the men and women who served and gave the ultimate price for our country, thanks so much for doing what you do for us.
RUSH: Well, it’s the other way around, but thank you, I appreciate it. I really do.
CALLER: Yeah, sure. And, hey, you know, just looking at Barack’s recent comments about the people, the world leaders who are a bit, you know, uneasy about the possibility of Trump becoming president? I really think that’s Barack himself talking. I think, if you just look at, you know, the state of the world and way things are, you know, his legacy is at stake here. So I think, if Trump becomes our next president and the slogan is “Make America Great Again…”, you know, even that slogan is really sort of a smack at Obama’s legacy. So I’m thinking he’s gonna try to do everything he can just to keep that from happening.
And in that effort, I don’t think the Department of Justice will be able to bring charges. I think they’re gonna drop any charges that Comey will bring on Hillary’s email scandal. I don’t know what your opinion is, Rush, but I really feel like it’s gonna be tucked under the carpet. I know that your theory is that on the private server that she had installed in her home, there was some damning evidence there about the Clinton cash and the Clinton Foundation. I think also there may have been some additional information regarding Obama and the way he handled Benghazi and other issues during his his presidency. So I think she needs to get rid of those, and then, in that effort, I think Obama will be supporting her totally here, moving forward through the election.
RUSH: I will repeat my theory on this. And my theory evolved earlier this week. What was the news story that was more drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip? Oh. It was the inspector general report on Hillary and her emails, which made it clear she has violated the law, which made it clear she has lied. She’s told everybody that there was not an investigation. It was just “a review.” There is an investigation. Do you know that this inspector general review produced three emails that nobody knew existed?
Why is that important?
It’s important because Mrs. Clinton told everybody she’d reviewed all the emails and turned over 30,000 of them to the State Department and destroyed the others ’cause they were about Hillary’s yoga classes and her daughter’s wedding and other such unrelated stuff. And the inspector general, going through these emails, said there are three emails that were found that nobody knew existed, that were not part of the original 30,000 that she submitted. I forget what they were about. But here’s what I think is happening.
I think Obama does not, in this case as in every other case, want his fingerprints on whatever the objective is. I think… I don’t know the details or why, but I think there’s bad blood there, for some reason. It may involve race and that 2008 campaign and Bill Clinton and things he said about Obama, who carries grudges. Barack Obama carries lifetime grudges — and, remember, Bill Clinton, among other things, was talking to Ted Kennedy in the 2008 campaign in South Carolina, and he said to Ted Kennedy, “Hey, what did you do, Ted?
“It wasn’t that long ago, a guy like this would be bringing us our drinks.” Obama doesn’t forget stuff like that, and so they turned around, they fired the race card on Clinton — and he got mad. “They played the race card on me! I can’t believe Jesse Jackson’s out there saying that I did things.” So I think that Obama’s responsible for the drip, drip, drip, drip. The drip, drip, drip, drip could be stopped. This is all the executive branch. If Obama wanted to get that IG report shaped or flavored one way, he could.
Folks, doubt me on this.
This administration’s already demonstrated that they’re corrupt in this regard, and the rule of law doesn’t matter, and procedures and things. So the things that we’ve always joked about the powerful doing to protect themselves, this bunch — I’m convinced — does it. So if they wanted to shut down the IG report, they could, or if they wanted to flavor it so that it was damaging or not the damaging, they could do that, too. “But, Rush! But, Rush! The inspector general is supposed to independent.” Yeah, yeah, yeah, and Obamacare is not supposed to be able to be expanded with executive actions, either.
