RUSH: Did you see where Bob Woodward is calling the Steele dossier a bunch of garbage? Bob Woodward is saying that there needs to be action taken to get to the bottom of it to find out how this garbage, how this outrage could have been so prominently used by the FBI and the CIA. Come on, Bob! You know what’s happening here, folks? First, over the weekend, we have the New York Times running the story that I highlighted prominently yesterday, where they now acknowledge that the Steele dossier could well have been (impression) “Russian disinformation.
“It’s likely the dossier is not proven. There’s nothing in it.” Why is the New York Times doing this? Why? They’re admitting that they ran with a series of lies for nearly two years, and now here’s Woodward the next day backing it up. Now something tells me that, you know, A, I think it is an acknowledgment that Barr is serious about his investigation to find out what the hell happened. And we know that the inspector general, Horowitz, is already looking into the FISA application process, which is where the dossier was used.
The judges in that FISA court were either lied to or were in on this. The attorney general, Barr, said that the inspector general report is due sometime in May or June. So these people who knowingly used and spread a series of lies are all of a sudden trying to get right with God, or whoever? It tells me they know what’s coming. It tells me that they know the jig is gonna be up and they’ve gotta somehow get themselves on the right side of this now because they know that the truth is going to be presented sooner rather than later.
RUSH: I want to get this one call in because this is key. This is how the left is going to deal with the dossier. This is Dave in Shawnee, Oklahoma. Great to have you, sir. Hi.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. This is an honor. I turned 70 yesterday. It’s my birthday present. But, anyway, yeah, I was listening Sunday to Bob Woodward, and he made a joke about “follow the money,” and he said that was just in the movie and the whole thing. The only thing is, Bob Woodward is so deep in the swamp. Six months before he broke the Watergate story, he was working for naval intelligence. But what he said was, this money goes all… He says there was no money linked to Trump. But then he says that the money goes back to Putin. I’m going, “Now, where does he get that link?” But that’s what they’re trying to do. They’re trying to make a money trail to Putin.
RUSH: You mean the dossier, not the money?
CALLER: Well, yeah, the dossier, the money for the dossier goes back to Putin. That’s what he was trying to say.
RUSH: Right. That’s the point. That’s what I wanted out there. This is what they’re going to try to do. They now are forced to admit what they have known for two years. Do not doubt me. They have known this dossier is fake. If not for two years, for a year and a half they have certainly known it. They knew it when they used it to apply for FISA warrants and renew it, the FISA warrant and then three renewals. They knew it.
They rolled the dice and thought that they could make something happen using this, and they bombed out. So now they know that the truth. It’s one thing for people like me to be telling you that the dossier is fake. But wait ’til the inspector general or Barr’s investigation reveals that it was fake. So what are they doing? They’re linking it to Putin, not Hillary! That’s what Bob Woodward was doing with his comments, that the dossier is linked to Putin.
He didn’t even mention Hillary Clinton.
Now, it is linked to Russians in the sense that Hillary hired Christopher Steele to write the dossier. Fusion GPS actually hired Steele. Hillary and her campaign wanted it done, and they paid Steele via that law firm, Perkins Coie, and Steele did talk to a bunch of Russian agents and they got together and just made up a bunch of stuff. Russian agents that Steele has known since his career as a British spy. So now, they’re going to try to leave the Hillary Clinton and the FBI, the DOJ out of it, and claim it’s a Putin operation.
RUSH: Here’s Evan in my adopted hometown of Sacramento. Great to have you on the program, sir. How are you?
CALLER: Good. How are you?
RUSH: Good. Couldn’t be better.
CALLER: I was just wondering if all these Democrats are so for sure Russia stole the election for Trump, why isn’t Hillary the candidate again?
RUSH: Well, you know what? Good question. If it were up to her, she would be. But I get your point. She didn’t have an election stolen from her. She lost it. She was a lousy candidate, and they know it, and they gave her her chance twice, she blew it twice. Her time is past.
CALLER: Thank God for Donald Trump.
RUSH: (chuckling) Boy, is that ever… That’s another thing. All these Republicans out there ever since the nineties who have been hoping and praying somebody would bury the Clintons, and it was Donald Trump who did it. That’s why they had to say the Russians did it or that the whole thing was rigged. But in fact, all of the rigging… The people that tried to rig an election are Hillary and Comey and McCabe — all these people in Obama’s FBI, Obama’s CIA, in Obama’s Department of Justice — and the Clinton campaign, the Democrat National Committee. They’re the ones that rigged the Democrat primary for her, and they’re the ones that tried to rig the presidential election.
