In July 2017 Conservative talk show host legend, Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves vigorously defending President Trump against special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
They don’t have any limits. There are no parameters. The Justice Department has not limited the scope of Mueller’s investigation at all. So here’s what this also is. As it stands now, the Mueller investigation is probably going to be the biggest, most massive opposition research operation ever conducted in American politics. With this investigation having no bounds and no limits, this team can go anywhere to find any dirt whatsoever. In fact, for the presidential election in 2020, this is a godsend. A team of Obama-Hillary donors investigating every aspect of a sitting president that they detest.
An opposition research festival that has been sanctioned by law, an opposition research investigation that can go anywhere as deep as it wants to dredge up anything they can find on a sitting president and to heck with what comes of the investigation. The data being produced here, I mean as much as things leaked now, it wouldn’t be a challenge at all to have some of whatever they find end up in the presidential campaign of 2020. An investigation certified by the president’s own Justice Department to investigate him! A free pass with an unlimited budget! There has never been an opposition research examination or investigation or operation that even gets close to this!”
Rush was right!
On Tuesday the Special Counsel Robert Mueller ordered the FBI to raid the home and business of Trump Attorney Michael Cohen.
Not only was this an assault on client-attorney privilege – it also allowed the Mueller Special Counsel and the New York District attorneys to examine the Republican Party finance records.
Michael Cohen is the deputy finance Chairman of the RNC.
So these partisan Democrats who have no respect US law have in their possession the RNC finance records.
But you can trust dirty cop Mueller. He certainly will not do anything illegal or unethical with the records, right?
The raid, which incensed President Trump to the point that he declined to rule out firing Mueller, not only shined the spotlight on yet another Trump associate who is possibly under investigation, but, also puts it, indirectly at least, on the Republican National Committee. Cohen is also the deputy finance chairman of the RNC, which is responsible for the bulk of its fundraising operations – and is the third member of the committee, including the former chairmen – to have come under severe scrutiny in nearly as many months.
In January, casino mogul Steve Wynn, who was then chairmen of the committee, announced his resignation after the Wall Street Journal published an explosive report detailing decades worth of sexual misconduct allegations, including a $7.5 million settlement between Wynn and a former manicurist at one of his properties, who said he had forced her to have sex with him.
And in March, the New York Times reported that Elliot Broidy, who, like Cohen, serves as Deputy Finance Chairman of the RNC, is under scrutiny for using his access to Trump to advocate for softer policies towards Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in an order to procure lucrative contracts for his contracting company. The Times also reported that month that Broidy used his access to Trump as marketing fodder for his clients, offering favors like a trip to the President’s Mar-A-Lago resort and tickets to V.I.P inauguration events.
