RUSH: DEBBIE WASSERMAN AND IMRAN AWAN – ” There’s something between these two beyond the work relationship”
- Rush Limbaugh on Debbie Wasserman and Imran Awan: ” There’s something between these two beyond the work relationship, because this doesn’t make any sense. “
RUSH: Folks, there’s some things on the program I want to get to just to give him a heads-up. We are gonna get into a little bit more about Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz and her IT staffer. She gave an interview. Either I think it was the South Florida Sun-Sentinel or the Orlando… It’s a south Florida newspaper, and the way this reads, she went out of her way to keep this guy on the staff, and she goes so far as to say, “I really felt that he was becoming a victim of anti-Muslim bias.”
RUSH: The Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz thing is interesting. Your overall question, is she gonna get away with it? Traditionally Democrats do get away. Hillary has gotten away with whatever she did with her emails. And Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch appear to get away with what should have been an illegal meeting on her airport on the tarmac in Phoenix while a supposed investigation of her emails was being conducted by the FBI. All of these various nefarious activities never seem to be called upon.
Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz finally broke her silence on this staffer of hers that was arrested, Imran Awan. She says that she has no regrets about keeping him on the payroll after he was blocked from working on Capitol Hill. This guy and his brothers may actually have stolen and hacked all kinds of data from the DNC servers. They are Pakistani. They wired $236,000 back to Pakistan. They were allowed to keep it. Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz said, “I did the right thing keeping him on, and I would do it again. It would have been easier for me to just fire him.”
But she says she kept him on because she felt that he was being discriminated against because of his Islamic or Muslim religion. Now, folks, this guy was a thief. This guy had stolen, hacked, who knows what — part of the IT firm that they had hired to protect their data. I mean, it’s a royal mess. And this guy was attempting to flee the country when he was caught and arrested, and Debbie Schultz is saying, “I woulda kept him on, I don’t care.” There’s something between these two beyond the work relationship, because this doesn’t make any sense. Whether she gets away with this or not? I don’t see any evidence that she won’t.

LIMBAUGH: Trump should fire Robert Mueller and pardon everyone he’s investigating in order to end probe
- One way to end Robert Mueller probe is just pardon everybody that Mueller is investigating
- Trump could also shut it down by firing Mueller
- The firing of James Comey is what has led here to a special counsel. But there’s no crime. And I am not making this up. With no underlying crime, there’s really no reason for a special counsel. But, as we know, Mueller is already an eager beaver. He’s at it. He’s hiring all these liberal Democrat lawyers and investigators.
Mueller’s out-of-control investigation that is obviously a political opposition research program underway with all the liberal Democrats supporting Obama and had Hillary that Mueller has hired. And the no parameters and the wide open playing field, they go anywhere back in time to any point they want. There’s no limits on them.
And one way Trump could shut it down, there’s speculation, why don’t you just fire Mueller? And our good buddies at National Review Online, which, for the most part, are Never Trumpers, are now wagering on the odds that Trump will fire Mueller. And some of them are saying it’s a hundred percent, others say 70%, some say 50%.
One way to end this is just pardon everybody that Mueller is investigating. Right now. Just pardon them. It would shut down the investigation. If there’s not going to be any punishment, whatever charges are brought eventually, if allegations are made, they’ve been prepardoned here. It’d be one way of shutting it down.
If Trump were to fire Mueller — and believe me, the conventional wisdom is that he’s going to at some point because — one thing, Mr. Snerdley, we’d all have to agree here. Trump ran for president for a whole bunch of reasons, but I think it’s probably safe to say that the one thing Trump did not want to happen is because he wins the presidency, there now begins an open-ended investigation of his entire business life.
There is no way that Donald Trump is gonna sit here and put up with that. That’s not why he did this. And that’s why learned experts are engaging in taking odds on how long it is before Mueller gets fired. And there are ways, folks, of getting there before that kind of drastic step, either firing Mueller or pardoning everybody that might be involved.
President Trump and Rush Limbaugh had similar, weird experience with Morning Joe hosts/couple Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.
- Trump to Rush last March 23 at the White House: “Those two ( Joe and Mika ) are weird.” And I just sat there. He said, “Yeah, New Year’s Eve, they call, they begged to come to Mar-a-Lago. They want to be around me. They come to Mar-a-Lago. I said, ‘I gotta let ’em in, I’m president-elect, they want to come.’ I didn’t want them there, but they wanted to come. And they hang out for all three days, and I kind of felt obligated to have ’em.”
- Rush: ‘In 2012, Joe and Mika asked to come by and they were here for about an hour, gave them an engraved EIB iPad. It was about three weeks later that they started trashing me like I have never been trashed.
Rush Limbaugh: It was 2012. ..I get a note that Mika Brzezinski and Scarborough are in town. There’s something going on in town that they’re here, they’re here making an appearance… And they asked to come by. I met Scarborough a long, long time ago. He was a member of the freshman class in 1994. I had never met Mika Brzezinski. They came by here and they were here for about an hour.
Could not have been nicer. And I asked Mika, you know, her dad was Zbig, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and I asked her what it was like growing up with her dad national security adviser to Jimmy Carter. She said, “Oh, we went everywhere. Every foreign trip he packed everybody up, we went as a family.”
I heard some fascinating stories. Scarborough was talking about his rock band and playing the guitar.
And I ended up giving each of them an engraved EIB iPad. Do you remember? And they were thrilled, they were happy, and they walked out of here with them after about an hour.
And Mika even used her EIB iPad on MSNBC. I have a picture of her using it, showing, flashing it. It was about three weeks later that they started trashing me like I have never been trashed. I don’t even remember what about. And I didn’t hear it ’cause I don’t watch MSNBC. I was told about it.I had no clue. “What did you do to them?” I didn’t do anything. I gave them an iPad.
They came down here unannounced. I brought ’em in here for an hour, and they sat here and talked. And then this I haven’t told you.
Kathryn and I had dinner at the White House on March 23rd. It was a Thursday night. It was the night before what was going to be the first vote in the House on repealing Obamacare. It did not happen.
We got there right at five o’clock, right as Trump was meeting with the Tuesday group, a group of Republican House members. There were 17 “no” votes. We watched the whole thing, right off Oval Office. He converted 16 of those votes to “yes” votes. At dinner — I’m down to 30 seconds here. I have to go through this faster than I want to. At dinner, I don’t know how it came up, he asked me if I knew Scarborough and I said, “Yeah, I’ve met him.”
He said, “Those two are weird.” And I just sat there. He said, “Yeah, New Year’s Eve, they call, they begged to come to Mar-a-Lago. They want to be around me. They come to Mar-a-Lago. I said, ‘I gotta let ’em in, I’m president-elect, they want to come.’ I didn’t want them there, but they wanted to come. And they hang out for all three days, and I kind of felt obligated to have ’em.” I read this tweet today, and apparently he’s been bugged by that ever since it happened. I mean, just told me, told us out of the blue about it.

The Democrats and fake news media expected six-foot-eight giant James Comey to slay Trump at Senate hearing yesterday, what they got was a ‘precious snowflake’ instead.
RUSH CALLER: I am watching this guy. He reminds me of a Millennial. I’ve never seen any six foot eight 56-year-old man act like this. He’s whiny. He uses Millennial-like phrases like, “I was stunned. It got awkward. I was uncomfortable. I don’t want to be in a room alone with him.”
RUSH: Right. He says to Sessions, “Don’t leave me in a room alone with him!” Oh, my God, what’s he gonna do? What’s he gonna do!? It’s Donald Trump! “Don’t leave me in a room. Oh, no!” And then don’t forget the story where he’s trying to hide in the curtains in the Blue Room. Remember that? The guy’s six-eight, towering over everybody, and he’s trying to hide in the curtains so Trump doesn’t see him. (sigh)

Hacker Kim Dotcom told Rush Limbaugh Wikileaks source DNC staffer Seth Rich was murdered by hired killers. Another Clinton body bag? Kim DotCom, admitted on Saturday that he was part of an operation along with Seth Rich to get stolen DNC emails to Wikileaks. It’s reported that DNC, esp. John Podesta, are in complete panic after Kim Dotcom promise to expose evidence regarding Seth Rich involvement with Wikileaks.
Kim Dotcom update! Major information tomorrow at Kim.com .
Rush Limbaugh: This story is now starting to get legs that Seth Rich was murdered. It was a contract hire killing because he was leaking to Wikileaks. He was the one. The only colluding and rigging here folks is the Democrat primary election… There is a massive lawsuit against the DNC by Bernie supporters, for him getting shafted… Kim DotCom, the noted hacker, has now come forward and said he was working with Seth Rich to get the documents to Wikileaks. That link is at The Drudge Report today… Back in March Kim DotCom tweeted me. He said, “Dear Rush Limbaugh one day I will tell you on your show what really happened. It will be a very entertaining hour .”
Rush Limbaugh: Make book: At 5:30 every day there’s now a new bombshell. It’s at 5:30, just in time for the evening news, but too late for the Trump team to mount any kind of defense before the evening news. There’s gonna be one today at 5:30. No idea what it is. But that’s the formula now: A Trump bombshell, a Trump blockbuster, Trump breaking news at five to 5:30.
Limbaugh to Pence: ‘What Is the Point of Voting Republican If the Democrats Are Going to Continue to Win?’…GOP WIMPS NEED BACKBONE!
Great question by El Rushbo to low self-esteem GOP who tend to crumble whenever bullied by their nasty Democrat comrades: ‘What Is the Point of Voting Republican If the Democrats Are Going to Continue to Win?
Limbaugh asked the vice president what the “point” was of voting for Republicans if they were going to continue to give Democrats victories.
Partial transcript as follows:
LIMBAUGH: We welcome back to the program the vice president of the United States, Mike Pence. Welcome back, sir. Great to have you here with us today.
PENCE: Rush Limbaugh, it is an honor to be with you always. Thanks for having me on.
LIMBAUGH: If this is what happens, Mr. Vice President, why vote Republican? What is the point of voting Republican if the Democrats are gonna continue to win practically 95% of their objectives, such as in this last budget deal?
PENCE: Well, look, respectfully, Rush, I actually think this was, as the president said a little a while ago, I think this was actually a clear win for the American people. Look, you’ve had Washington, D.C., that has been, you know, paralyzed by gridlock and partisan infighting for many years, and in this new president you have someone who was able to bring people together and make a $21 billion increase in defense spending at a time of great challenge for America’s interests around the world. And that’s a — you know, he spoke about that today, surrounded by a lot of great members of the United States Air Force. And it was also a piece for years, Democrats in Washington insisted that any increase in defense spending would be matched with an increase in domestic spending.
So you gotta grow government at home if you’re gonna, you know, invest in our national defense. This ended that. I mean, in a very real sense this was a game-changer because we’re just back to putting the safety, security, and the national defense of the American people first, and I think it sends, having just traveled around the Asian-Pacific representing the president over the last couple of weeks, I think this sends a decisive message to the world that under President Trump’s leadership we’re gonna make the strongest military in history even stronger.
LIMBAUGH: If I’m the Democrats, $21 billion, 15 billion for defense that was not originally authorized, that’s a small price to pay for continuing to fund refugee resettlement, continuing to fund Planned Parenthood, continuing to fund sanctuary cities, continuing to fund the EPA, and not build the wall. The Democrats clearly think this is a big win, and they’re confident they can block Trump’s agenda after this spending bill for the rest of Trump’s term. There isn’t anything of the president’s agenda in this budget, and people are beginning to ask, when’s that gonna happen? If you’re gonna shut it down in September, why not now?
LIMBAUGH: If you complain about 60 votes today, why not go budget reconciliation for 51 votes and smoke ’em?
PENCE: Rush, Rush —
PENCE: Rush, let me be real clear. The number one priority of President Trump is to rebuild our military, to restore the arsenal of democracy. And I gotta tell you, to get Democrats in Washington, D.C., to agree to a $21 billion increase in a short-term budget bill — and, you know, the president’s calling for the largest increase in military spending since the Reagan administration in the upcoming budget, I think is no small — it’s no small accomplishment.
