On Monday, Rush Limbaugh offered up some advice to President Trump when it comes to “Impeachment” talk – don’t shy away from it.
“They cannot be afraid to mention the word. No need to be timid here”, Rush said. He continued by saying that this subject needs to be “knocked out of the park” and dealt with head-on.
Here’s a partial transcript of his comments (From RushLimbugh.com):
They had better get this talk of impeachment under control. This has gotta stop. They cannot be afraid to mention the word. No need to be timid here. This needs to be knocked out of the park. There isn’t anything impeachable that has happened. It is outrageous that five months in this has become the narrative.
This was eminently predictable. And I’ll tell you what, I’m starting to see, in a lot of places all over the media, criticism of the elected Republicans in Congress and consultants and strategists sitting on their hands and not saying or doing anything. This is a criticism that many have observed for many, many moons now, but it’s gaining steam, and a lot of people are getting fatigued and — well, not fatigued. They’re getting energized by this. This has got to change.
There are a number of things that have to change. We need to start going on offense and acting like the winners that we are. Well, some of us have already been doing that. I’m saying others need to join the circus with that attitude.
More on this impeachment and investigation stuff as the program unfolds. I’ll just tell you this. I mean, the narrative out there is that Trump’s under investigation and that the independent counsel, Robert Mueller, is really going to town and he’s collecting evidence and it’s just a matter of time Trump is gonna be impeached. That’s the narrative that everybody’s trying to establish. Even old Pencil Neck, Adam Schiff’s back on TV (paraphrasing), “Well, we still don’t have any evidence. We don’t have any evidence of collusion, but I think there might be obstruction.”
There isn’t any obstruction. A president cannot be tried for obstruction of justice, not in a civil-criminal situation. Maybe impeachment, but we don’t even have that here. These thresholds have not been reached. But while that’s the narrative, some sneaky little thing happened on Fox I haven’t seen too many people talking about, and it happened today.
It was this morning. It was after ten o’clock. Fox News reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has made no final decision on Trump or if Comey’s firing is even worthy of being investigated. Fox News is citing one of their legal sources, unnamed. That kind of cuts against the grain of the media narrative that’s out there, that Mueller is already uncovered a bunch of stuff, he’s lining up a bunch of anti-Never Trumpers, got a bunch of Hillary and other Democrats — which is true, by the way, he does.
And of course he’s had the way paved for him by everybody agreeing that there’s no greater, no more impeccable relationship, image in Washington than that of Robert Mueller. He is Mr. Perfect. He’s got it down pat on ethics. He is unassailable when it comes to his character, when it comes to his integrity. And so when you set it up that way, whatever he comes up with cannot be challenged.
Do you agree with Rush? Should Trump combat this impeachment talk head-on? Comment below with your thoughts…
