RUSH: John Podesta, whose emails were made public in the WikiLeaks dump, ran Hillary’s campaign, was on a website yesterday, and they released an interview by Bloomberg Politics co-managing editor John Heilemann they had with Podesta. We have a little clip of this thing. It’s kind of funny in a way. During a discussion about James Comey, the FBI director, during a discussion of his impact on the election, Heilemann and Podesta had the following back-and-forth.
HEILEMANN: You have a theory, the case —
PODESTA: Well, I think there’s —
HEILEMANN: — that Comey wanted Trump to win, that the FBI wanted Trump to win. There’s gotta be some theories here.
PODESTA: I think there’s two possibilities. There are at least forces within the FBI that wanted her to lose. I’m not sure they were prepared to — they really understood the alternative, but they wanted her to lose. I think that’s one possibility. I think the other is just become a cover-your-ass organization and there was pressure coming up from underneath him, and he succumbed to that pressure.
RUSH: Wow. So there’s Podesta. So there’s a deep state that stuck it to Hillary. Somebody in the FBI didn’t want her to win. You know what they’re saying. They’re saying that Rudy, Rudy Giuliani, former U.S. attorney, tight with some FBI types in New York, they’re saying that Rudy had the connections to make all this Comey stuff happen and that the FBI is just a cover-your-ass organization, not doing anything serious anymore. They just wanted her to lose and they didn’t understand the alternative. Meaning they didn’t know how bad it would be with Trump, they just hated her, once again, betraying the Podesta mind-set.
So, anyway, I don’t know if they ended up blaming the Russians as that interview went on, but it’s pretty much what we know they think. They didn’t lose because of Hillary’s being a lousy candidate. They didn’t lose because of ideas. They didn’t lose because people like Trump better. They lost because somebody cheated ’em and maybe a combination of the FBI and the Russians cheated ’em. They still can’t get over it, and it’s largely governing much of their behavior even now.
