Rush Limbaugh is questioning the timing of an announcement that former National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn has been charged by special counsel Robert Mueller.
Limbaugh told his listeners today that the “convenient” Flynn story, based on crimes that allegedly occurred in December 2016 and have zero to do with the election, is timed to “sweep” positive Trump stories off the front pages.
Those stories include:
– Impending passage of a national tax cut
– NBC’s Matt Lauer being exposed for sexual misconduct
– The nascent economic boom
– The continuing destruction of ISIS
Instead, we all get to read about how Michael Flynn called the Russians in December 2016…and colluded to…colluded to…build a time machine and go back to October to influence voters?
More from Breitbart:
Limbaugh suggested the timing of the news was to draw the attention away from passage of the tax bill among other items in the news, including the Matt Lauer firing from NBC and the “not guilty” verdict in the Kate Steinle murder trial.
“So there you have it – they’re all excited,” Limbaugh said. “Mueller did the deed on the right day. Mueller did the deed to sweep the tax cut deal off the table and to tick everybody off.
This is, in Jonathan Martin’s opinion, the swamp banding together – the establishment coordinating its efforts to continue to destroy Trump and muddy the waters. The tax bill is going to pass.
As far as [Mitch] McConnell and [Paul] Ryan are concerned, none of this today is a legal problem.”
“It’s a bit of a political problem, but it doesn’t present any legal problems to them or their tax bill,” he continued.
“The tax bill is going to pass. But I don’t have any doubt that the timing of this thing today may not be coincidental. Just look at all the news it has swept off the front pages and look what it put back on the front page: ‘Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the election from Hillary.’”
Hillary Clinton is so unpopular, it’s hard to believe there are those who will never let go of her not being elected. But Robert Mueller is apparently one of them.
