RUSH: To the phones we go, J.R. in Columbus, Ohio. Glad you called, sir, how are you?
CALLER: Great, Rush. Merry Christmas dittos to you, buddy.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: Okay, do you think Trump will fire Mueller and at the same time open an investigation on Hillary Clinton?
CALLER: Okay. (laughing)
RUSH: Look, let me focus more on the second part about open an investigation into Hillary. There are a lot of people who think that Mueller’s gonna do that himself, that Mueller is doing it, that you cannot miss Hillary. If you’re investigating collusion with the Russians and, if you’re doing it honestly, you can’t miss the Clinton campaign’s involvement with the Russians! They wrote the Trump dossier. How can you miss it?
Here’s the thing. We don’t need an investigation to indict, charge, and convict Hillary Clinton. Comey already exonerated her. If there was a desire to get Hillary Clinton, we have enough. We don’t need a new investigation. We don’t need to try to uncover any more evidence. We’ve got everything we know, including it’s enough to know that the FBI went out of its way to exonerate her. And the same people are in charge, for all intents and purposes.
I kind of have to laugh. I don’t mean to be rude, but I understand the “lock her up” sentiment. I understand the anger. How can she get the hell away with this scot-free when she did pretty much everything they’re accusing Trump of and everybody already knows it? My point, everybody already knows it, and there’s no investigation of Hillary. She’s been exonerated from it.
Now, as for Trump firing Mueller, I don’t see it. I think it’s fake news. Politically it’s got more downsides than upsides. In fact, I’ll tell you, I just heard a rumor. I just got an email with a rumor in it. The rumor is that Trump is telling people that Mueller is preparing a letter that exonerates Trump of any wrongdoing in all of this. It’s a rumor. I do not know if it’s true. I don’t know if Trump knows this. I don’t know if somebody told Trump this. I don’t know if it’s bogus.
But the email I got suggests that Trump is telling people that he thinks, he’s pretty sure Mueller is gonna write a letter pretty soon to assure the American people that their president is not guilty of anything that he’s looking into, that the country needs to know their president isn’t guilty of anything. Whether that’s true?
But even if it’s not true, let’s deal with that ’cause the odds of this, who knows. If Trump believes the public opinion polls, and Mueller’s not doing well in these public opinion polls, this investigation is not polling well. If Trump believes that whatever this investigation produces that 45, 48% of the American people are not gonna believe it, why tamper with that?
Now, whether in coming years, depending on what happens here, Trump conceives another investigation into Hillary, I wouldn’t mind it. Don’t misunderstand me, folks. I’m not suggesting that. I’m just suggesting that we don’t need to investigate her. That’s been done. And they basically exonerated her, knowing pretty much everything there is to know. So my only point is, there doesn’t appear to be, at the FBI or the DOJ, any desire to investigate or charge Hillary Clinton with anything.
