Rush Limbaugh questioned the validity of the Russian investigations of President Trump and his administration during his radio show on Friday.
Calling what's unfolding a "silent coup," Limbaugh lashed out at the treatment of the president by those within his party, the media and rest of the country.
"How do we get no evidence of anything into five investigations on Capitol Hill, numerous media investigations, and the big investigation by the real pros: The CIA, the NSA, and the FBI?" Limbaugh asked. "There’s nothing. There’s not a scintilla. There’s not a whit. There’s no evidence whatsoever."
"It takes a lot of people conspiring together to make this happen," Limbaugh continued.
Directly attacking the media over reporting alleged White House leaks, Limbaugh said:
"I think it has a purposeful, studied effort and outcome, which is a coup. We are watching a silent coup here to oust a duly elected president, and this coup is being mounted by career government people who can traffic anonymously and who are protected by people in the media and within the Democrat Party. Stop and think of it, folks. A year. How many…? Hasn’t the Washington Post at one time admitted that they have over 30 anonymous sources for all of this? That’s just one newspaper, 30 anonymous sources there."
Limbaugh added that The New York Times has their own sources, and wondered aloud how much source overlap existed between the varying publications.
Insisting that there's no evidence of collusion, Limbaugh pointed to a coverup of the "real" coverup.
"All these deep state career government people, ex-Obama people that are civilians now? We don’t know," he said. "But it is a lot of people, and there isn’t any evidence. There’s none! ... Not only is there no evidence, there’s nothing to suggest the need of a special counsel. They can’t even find a coverup to cover up the fact that there’s no evidence. What is the cover-up?"
Limbaugh added that firing former FBI Director James Comey is not a scandal.
"When you don’t have a crime, then what the hell is being covered up?" he asked. "But they’ve got people believing that there’s a scandal here, and you know what the scandal is? Firing Comey. That’s not a scandal. Firing Comey? The president can do that any time he wants for whatever reason he wants, and he doesn’t need anybody’s permission."
