Rush Limbaugh: ‘When Did Barack Obama Know’ About Michael Flynn’s Ties to Russia?
Rush Limbaugh has questions.
During his radio show yesterday, the conservative firebrand reacted to the resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn by claiming the mainstream media is missing the real story — what was Barack Obama’s role in all of this?
“The question is, what did Barack Obama know and when did he know it and what has he engineered here?” Limbaugh asked.
Highlighting that the calls between Flynn and the Russian ambassador that led to his ouster occurred back in December, Limbaugh explained that he doesn’t see what the “big deal” was.
“Even if, even if Flynn, as the incoming national security director, had called the Russian ambassador to talk, so what?” Rush queried. “That’s not hard to imagine. That’s not a big deal. It really isn’t a big deal.”
Limbaugh said it was fine for Flynn to “get out of the way” if he lied to Vice President Mike Pence, he still didn’t understand why the media was asking what Trump knew about Flynn’s calls and when he knew it.
This segued into the conservative radio host then tying Flynn to the Obama Administration due to Flynn being the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency under Obama and saying that this was a “political assassination” set up by the former administration. He also explained that the media was part of this strategy.
“The media’s gonna try as hard as they can not to let go of this, because now they’ve got their scalp,” he bellowed. “They think they have blood in the water, they’ve got a scalp and they think they can get another and then another and then another and then another until finally they get Trump.”
