RUSH: Yesterday, after the program, for the next issue of the most widely read political newsletter in America, The Limbaugh Letter, I interviewed famed journalist Ed Klein. Ed Klein used to edit the New York Times Magazine. He has written 14 books. The guy has incredible sources. People talk to this guy that don’t talk to other people. The stuff that he publishes and writes is often attacked and criticized as nothing more than tabloid conspiracy stuff, but, more often than not, there’s a lot to it. And he told me something yesterday.
So I’m gonna give you a little heads-up, ’cause I was asking him about how he works, how he gets his sources, how he gets them to open up to him, how he protects them. Has he ever had to burn any? This kind of thing. And he gave me a heads-up. And, you know, I’m thinking I’ve got a little bit of an exclusive to tell you, and I get up and I read the U.K. Daily Mail today, and here it is:
“Hillary Clinton is in ‘secret negotiations’ with ex-British spy Christopher Steele to buy SECOND ‘dirty dossier’ on Trump’s romantic englements [sic] with Russian women, claims. Clinton author Ed Klein, author of four books on the Clintons, claims Hillary’s minions are in secret talks” he told me this yesterday “with Russian dossier author Christopher Steele, in an attempt to end his ‘illegitimate presidency.'”
I asked Klein, “Why does she want to do this? Why does she care? Does she think that she’s gonna somehow be reinstated in the Oval Office? What is in this?” In his own words, he said, “She is so livid, it’s vengeance. There is no way she should have lost, and she wants Trump to suffer. She wants Trump to be miserable. She wants the truth that she thinks exists about Trump to come out. She wants Trump destroyed!”
That’s what Ed Klein told me is Hillary’s energizing and animating motivations. So we get this story that she’s trying to buy a second dossier. You know, she and her team bought the first dossier, they bought and paid for the first dossier that’s filled with BS. Now she’s out asking the guy to write another one! And apparently, it’s only purpose is to enter the public domain to end up humiliating and embarrassing Donald Trump to the point that he is destroyed or ruined.
