RUSH: Did you see the New York Post story yesterday? That Hillary Clinton’s maid was ordered to print out classified materials. “As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government emails and documents — including ones containing classified information — from her house in Washington.” And this according to FBI memos and emails from WikiLeaks. I mean, it’s been documented in the investigation.
The housekeeper lacked security clearance, obviously, to handle classified data. But they didn’t find anything wrong with this. Can you believe this? A maid. Hillary’s ordering the maid to print out classified, secret, top secret documents. “Marina Santos was called on so frequently to receive emails that she may hold the secrets to emailgate — if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she used.”
I had a thought about this. So here’s Hillary, and she’s got her classified stuff, and it’s at home. This is at the Washington townhouse, home, whatever it is, not Chappaqua. That is a whole other thing. She had the home server in Chappaqua, but the same stuff was going on at the house in Washington. She’s got this maid. She’s ordering the maid to print this stuff out, deliver it, bring it back, whatever, file it, who knows what. The maid does not have clearance. The media finds absolutely nothing curious about this.
But let’s say this is reversed and it was, let’s say, Trump ordering his maid. What do you think the story would be? Now, think. Think. No. No it wouldn’t be a thing about that. That would be the second part. Trump breaching national security. The second part of the story. What would the story be if Trump had a maid, Hispanic maid, printing out stuff, classified data, what would the story be?
(interruption) No, that Trump has a maid. That Trump’s different from you. Trump has a maid. Trump has a poor Hispanic woman who is a slave. That Trump’s so lazy he won’t even print his own stuff. He has this poor Hispanic woman, obviously being victimized, obviously being poorly paid, being a prisoner in Trump’s own home being made to do dirty work like this. They would use the story of a Republican having a maid to show how they are so out of touch and everybody else is peons.
No, it’s Hillary who has the maid, a Hispanic maid. It’s Hillary who’s got the maid violating classified secrets and documents and all that. (interruption) Filipino? I’m sorry. Filipino. Okay. So she’s Filipino. Doesn’t matter. Still a minority and a woman. If it were Trump, I guarantee the story would be, Trump has a maid and you don’t and that’s why Trump is unqualified. Trump’s a rich guy, has a maid. How many maids does Trump have? Then they’d try to find the other maids. Then they find the bartenders and the waiters that work for Trump.
The fact that Hillary’s got a maid, no big deal. The fact that she’s trafficking in classified information, no big deal. The fact that Hillary’s too lazy to get up and waddle to the printer and do it herself, not a story. No, there’s no story. We wouldn’t know about it if it hadn’t run in the New York Post.
So Doug Band saw this and he flipped and he said (summarized), “I’m not doing anything any differently than Bill Clinton does! Bill Clinton solicits jobs for himself. He solicits donations and then speech fees.” So bad blood erupted between Doug Band and Chelsea. It turns out Doug Band wasn’t finished. It turns out that Doug Band has accused Chelsea of using Clinton Foundation money to pay for her wedding. A couple of days ago we learned from a Podesta email — Doug Band about Chelsea — talking openly in public about her internal investigation in the Clinton Foundation of which she found Band was acting like a bad guy.
The collusion between the media and the Democrat National Committee and the Clintons is just amazing. I told you I don’t know how long ago that the media is not news anymore. But the media is simply Democrats and party hacks that are disguised or assigned as journalists. A new email shows John Harwood, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNBC, asking John Podesta for question ideas from Jeb Bush. John Harwood, who moderated one of the Republican primary debates, sent emails to John Podesta, ranging from FYIs — Hey, John, for your information, I dug this up on so and so — to compliments to Podesta.
Now there’s an email from Harwood to John Podesta, which has the subject line: “What Should I Ask Jeb?” referring to his upcoming interview with Jeb Bush back in September of 2015. Harwood is going to interview Bush and he’s asking Podesta, Hillary’s campaign manager: What kind of questions should I ask? Meaning: How do you want me to nail the guy? Now, keep in mind, Jeb Bush is probably going to vote for Hillary. Keep in mind these never Trumpers are going to vote for Hillary. And here we learn that a reporter — ostensibly doing a fair and honest interview with Jeb Bush, Republican presidential candidate in the Republican primaries — is actually being given questions by the Hillary campaign.
But that’s not all, ladies and gentlemen.
We also find out that CNN was looking for questions from the Democrat National Committee to ask Ted Cruz when they had an interview with him. They sent an email to one, two, three, four, five, six people at the Democrat National Committee. “Please send some topical interesting questions we can ask Ted Cruz. Maybe a couple on Fiorina. Somebody please take point and send them all together by 3:00 p.m. Thank you.” Now, why couldn’t people at CNN think of anything to ask Ted Cruz? (interruption) They want to make sure… That’s exactly right: They want to make sure they’re doing right by the campaign.
They’re all Democrat operatives. Some are assigned as journalists some are think-tankers. Some are assigned to run for office. Some are legislative aides. Some are in the regulatory agencies. Others are assigned to the media. So CNN is asking… They did the same for Trump. They asked the Hillary campaign for questions on Trump. They also asked… The Washington Post writer, Dana Milbank, was doing a profile of Trump. Dana Milbank asked the Democrat National Committee for any “anti-Trump research” they had that he could put in his profile.
And you call the Democrat National Committee you’re calling the Hillary campaign. You’re certainly not calling the Bernie Sanders campaign. So questions for Cruz, questions we can nail Trump with. Please give us your research — your oppo research on Trump — says Dana Milbank, and Harwood wanting to know what he should ask Jeb Bush. These people have got to go. This is the kind of inbred, incestuousness that is destroying what everybody thinks of their government and thinks of Washington.
It’s got to stop or we’re finished.
RUSH: Look at this. This is a Daily Caller story. “Leaked Bill Clinton Speech: Obama Years Left No Hope For White Working Class — The economic stagnancy of the Obama years is to blame for plummeting life expectancy rates among white, working-class Americans, according to former president Bill Clinton, who privately told Democratic donors that lower-income whites ‘don’t have anything to look forward to when they get up in the morning.’ Clinton made the remarks while speaking to at a November 2015 closed-door fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in Canton, Ohio.”
The Democrats abandoned them in November of 2011 right before Obama was running for re-election. They’re considered undesirables, and these are the deplorables. And those out there telling them (impression), “Yeah, well, the Obama years left no hope for these people, but it’s okay because they’re behind the times anyway, and they’re not the future.” That’s what the Democrats believe, and this used to be the backbone of the Democrat Party. White working class, no college, used to be the backbone of the Democrat Party. They’ve said, “Screw ’em.”
