RUSH: Seattle. This is Matt. Great to have you, sir. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Hey, there, Rush. Rush Baby dittos thanks to Mike and Michelle, my parents, for making me that way. So I’ve been wanting to ask this for so long. Back when Robert Gibbs was about to leave the White House he was heading — it was reported that he was heading to Facebook to work. And Facebook was pretty new at the time, and I remember thinking Facebook’s young and hip and this press guy from the White House is going to Facebook? It seems really weird to me at the time, but in light of everything now it’s so obvious.
RUSH: So you think that Gibbs —
CALLER: Gibbs, yeah. Do you remember that?
RUSH: Gibbs was one of Obama’s first press secretaries, right?
CALLER: Correct. And then he was gonna leave there for a big job at Facebook.
RUSH: Right. And I remember at the time all these red flags —
RUSH: Well, look, it’s just incestuous. Let me find something here. I got something deep down in the Stack. Wait ’til you hear this. Here we go — Rod Rosenstein. We all know who Rod Rosenstein is. He’s the deputy attorney general. He’s the guy that appointed Mueller. He’s the guy that gave Mueller free rein. Justice Department regulations require that a crime be named and that that is what the special counsel shall pursue.
And if during said investigation, the special counsel encounters something else that is not within the purview of the crime being investigated, he’s gotta go back to the person that appointed him and seek permission to add this newly discovered crime to the investigation. None of that has happened. Mueller has been given free rein by Rod Rosenstein, supposedly deputy AG for Trump since Sessions has recused himself from anything to do with the Russians.
Rod Rosenstein or Rosenstein — I don’t know how he pronounces it. But his wife represented Bill Clinton shortly after Rosenstein cleared Hillary as a prosecutor. It turns out that Rosenstein worked as a Whitewater prosecutor. Did you know this, Snerdley? This guy was on the prosecution team of Whitewater, which, of course, found the Clintons had done nothing. Rosenstein’s wife then represented Bill Clinton shortly after Rod Rosenstein cleared Hillary in the Whitewater thing.
Rosenstein’s wife is Lisa Barsoomian, and she represented then-President Bill Clinton in a 1998-99 civil case in federal court. Rod Rosenstein worked as a Whitewater prosecutor. He was in charge of the FBI travel office case in which it was found the Clinton White House illegally seized FBI files from White House travel office employees. I mean, you talk about incestuous.
In a way, Washington is like the hillbillies in the mountains. Everybody’s related to everybody. It’s a gigantic revolving door, and they all know each other, and they all work or are married to each other, and they work for the same people over and over and over again. And this to me is further evidence why this guy, Rosenstein, ought not have any role in the Trump administration at all because the Trump administration is there to drain the swamp, not to promote it. Chuck Todd’s wife is somebody, David Gregory’s wife is somebody over at Fannie Mae, there’s no other word for it than incestuous.
