RUSH: Breaking news right before the program, NBC: “Obama Warned Trump Against Hiring Mike Flynn, Say Officials.” Now, up until moments ago, we thought it was Sally Yates who’s testifying before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee. Boy, the left, their tongues are on the sidewalk today panting. (panting) Michael Flynn worked for Trump for three weeks (laughing), and they got rid of him before Trump’s transition ever really even got into gear. They got rid of him.
But they’re still trying to tie Flynn to Trump because they’re still trying to tie the Russians to Trump. And Sally Yates is gonna be the next one with a bombshell to indicate whatever. She’s not gonna have a bombshell. She’s gonna have just enough to allow the media to continue this narrative that the Russians tampered, that the Russians have a closet secret deal with Trump, even though Dianne Feinstein… We played the sound bite for you last week of Dianne Feinstein being interviewed by Wolf Blitzer. “Is there anything you can tell us?
“Have you seen any evidence whatsoever? (panting) Is there any evidence whatsoever that there was collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign?” DiFi: “Not at this time.” End of story! No, it’s not the end of story because there is no story. There is a narrative that they are not going to let go, and it’s all oriented… Well, it’s not all. There are two things: Destroy Trump. But that is all part of preserving and maintaining the Obama legacy, which is really ratcheting up now with the Republican vote on repealing Obamacare.
That has sent panic through the every channel of the left.
RUSH: By the way, here is more evidence of my newly involved theorem that it is the media running everything and the Democrats are just an arm of it.
Donald Trump tweeted today the following: “Ask Sally Yates, under oath, if she knows how classified information got into the newspapers soon after she explained it to [White House] Council.” This is about Flynn and Sally Yates, an Obama holdover at the Department of Justice, and she’s claiming she told everybody in the White House that Flynn was a bad guy, and they didn’t listen to her. She’s testifying today.
So Trump sends out the tweet, “Ask Sally Yates under oath today if she knows how classified…” In other words: Ask Sally Yates if she’s leaking stuff! John King and Dana Bash on CNN ripped Trump today for “witness intimidation” of Sally Yates. “Before I covered politics all the time, I used to cover the courts a lot,” John King said. “A lawyer would call that witness intimidation.” Dana Bash said, “Yeah! Completely! Witness intimidation!” A Democrat didn’t… Well, these are Democrats, but an elected Democrat didn’t say this. These are the media carrying the water, running the show for the Democrats.
