|Trump Tweets Limbaugh’s Takedown of FBI Spying
President Donald Trump on Thursday went straight to the voice of expertise when it comes to law enforcement, tweeting out Rush Limbaugh’s take challenging Rep. Trey Gowdy’s assertions from a day before.
Paraphrasing Limbaugh from his Wednesday radio show, Trump tweeted: “If the FBI was so concerned, and if they weren’t targeting Trump, they should have told Trump. If they were really concerned about the Russians infiltrating a campaign (hoax), then why not try to stop it? Why not tell Trump? Because they were pushing this scam.”
Gowdy on Wednesday said the FBI acted properly after he had reviewed Department of Justice documents detailing the agency’s activity in Trump’s presidential campaign.
For Trump — who agreed wholeheartedly with Gowdy’s other assessment that Attorney General Jeff Sessions should have informed Trump about his intention to recuse himself from the Russia investigation much sooner — that was a bridge too far.
As it was for Limbaugh, during his Wednesday show.
“Look, folks, the Trey Gowdy situation. I don’t mind admitting this bothers me greatly,” Limbaugh said. After asserting that the FBI was “running this whole story,” Limbaugh said, “Don’t forget, the FBI knew that the Hillary campaign had paid for that dossier…
“If after all of that, they still think the Russians actually have infiltrated, then why not put a similar spy in the Hillary campaign? Because, look, everybody thought Hillary was gonna win. At this stage and up to election night, everybody thought Hillary was gonna win,” Limbaugh said.
