Limbaugh: Fox News Playing Into Mainstream Media’s Narrative Regarding Investigation into Trump

Rush Limbaugh contended on his program Monday that Fox News appears to be giving fuel to the mainstream media’s narrative by perpetuating talk that special counsel Robert Mueller may yet investigate President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice.

“There isn’t any obstruction,” Limbaugh said. “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.”

He continued, “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,” Limbaugh stated.

Limbaugh pointed out that ABC News has also been emphasizing that no decision has yet been made about whether to investigate the president.

“So we have two instances here also in the Drive-Bys — well, Fox News, arguably, depending on when you hear it could be considered Drive-By Media. I mean, I hate to say it, but in certain places Fox News does have people that would qualify,” said the radio host.

In the segment, Limbaugh also argued that “everything Trump’s done has been constitutional.”

“You know, Alan Dershowitz is about pulling his hair out on TV over this claiming that the left and everybody is trying to criticize, impeach, hound out of office a president who’s done nothing but exercise constitutional authority,” Limbaugh said.

Liberal Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz contended on CNN’s New Day on Monday, “The president of the United States should not be subject to criminal prosecution for merely exercising his constitutional authority.”

“In the absence of any statute to the contrary, the president has the authority fire the director of the FBI, and the president has the power tell the director of the FBI who to investigate, who not to investigate,” he added.

Dershowitz explained, “This is not the Nixon case. This is the Bush case,” he said, referring to President George H.W. Bush’s pardon of former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger from any potential wrongdoing in the Iran-Contra affair.

“Nobody suggested obstruction of justice” in that case, Dershowitz said.

According to Trump’s private attorney Jay Sekulow, the president was mocking a Washington Post story when he tweeted on Friday that he was being investigated.

“According to the Washington Post theory,” Sekulow said. “(Trump) is under investigation for taking the action (in firing Comey) that the Department of Justice told him to take … If you lay the case out like that, there is nothing to investigate.”

Limbaugh argued that the Trump administration must nevertheless be on guard.

He observed that the media has lionized Mueller in such a way that “(h)e 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,” Limbaugh added.

“When you get prosecutors involved, prosecutors have one objective, and that’s to get guilty pleas or verdicts,” he stated. “I can’t recall a special counsel, independent prosecutor, ever announcing, ‘Sorry. We’ve unturned every stone. We’ve done everything. We can’t find a crime. We can’t find any guilty party. So nothing to see here.’ Never happens. Never seen it.”
