Pencil Neck Hijacks Senate: We Can’t Trust the Ballot Box Because of Rus...


RUSH : Folks, in a normal and sane world, Adam Schiff would have just stepped in it. We got the sound bite coming. I got a note saying that Schiff just said -- and he's doing his opening argument here as House manager number 1. He said, "We cannot trust the ballot box." Now, where do you start with this?

Well, you start with Russia and these people still trying to convince people that Trump colluded with Russia and stole the 2016 election and is already working with Putin via Ukraine to steal the 2020 election. This is their case. That’s why Trump's gotta go now. Trump's gotta go now even before they convict him. They made a play in the last couple days to get Trump thrown out of office now even before any conviction because he's threatening the 2020 election.

So Schiff just said, "We cannot trust the ballot box." Ladies and gentlemen, there is not a shred of evidence that the election in 2016 was tampered with in any way, shape, manner, or form by Russia.

In all of the indictments that Robert Mueller handed down -- listen to me on this. People have forgotten, it's so long ago and it's such a crowded, crowded news arena now -- when Robert Mueller announced the indictments of the 11 Russian cyber troll farmers for doing, you know, chicanery on Facebook and all this other stuff, in the announcement of that indictment, Rosenstein, very last thing he said so that nobody would hear it, "There's nothing in these indictments that shows one vote was changed because of the actions of the accused. There is nothing in these indictments that suggests the outcome all of a single election was changed because of the actions of those indicted in this indictment.”

They went out of their way to make everybody understand the Russians had no impact on votes, vote counting, vote tabulation, nothing. And yet the Democrat Party persists in lying to the American people. I told you that these people ought to be held accountable. They have done more to corrupt the honor and integrity of American elections than anything the Russians could have done had they succeeded.

The Democrats have made sure everybody doubts every election result they lose. When they lose, the Russians did it, Trump did it, what have you. They’re already accusing Trump of tampering with the 2020 election. Tell me, how would that happen? I don't even want to go there. It's patently absurd.

Schiff is lying through his teeth and now telling people -- if I'm a Republican senator and I'm listening to this stuff I want to throw this guy out, somebody pound the gavel, say, “Why are we sitting here listening to this tripe?” We can't trust the ballot box because of a phone call with Ukraine? I mean, it's even ridiculous to assess this in specificity like this: "We can't trust the ballot box." Good Lord. There are a lot of uninformed people out there that are gonna be when they hear this. My God. Folks, this is the height of irresponsibility.

And why is it happening? These are the people that tell us how unhealthy it is to hate, how damaging it is to hate people, how unproductive. They have nothing but hate. They have hate for Trump, and it's irrational, compounded. It's impossible to properly categorize it for people. I'll tell you something else Schiff did. Everything that these Democrats are saying can be refuted with fact. And here is another one.

Schiff was talking at some point in the last 20 minutes about how important the aid Trump withheld from Ukraine is. It was deplorable. It was horrible. It was mean. It was risky what Trump did. Because Ukraine needs that aid to protect itself from Russia. But, of course, Trump, being in the back pocket of Russia, doesn't want Ukraine to be able to protect itself. This is what Schiff is saying and implying. Talking about how important the aid to Ukraine was and how mean and how inexcusable it was of Trump to delay it.

Okay. Let's go to back to Ukraine before Trump. Let's go to back to Ukraine during the eight years of Barack Obama. The reason Ukraine does not have a significant military apparatus is because we forced them to get rid of it, the Obama administration. And in exchange for Ukraine doing that, we signed a pact or a treaty pledging to come to their defense should they be attacked and unable to defend themselves.

You know what? They were attacked. Russia attacked Crimea, part of Ukraine, and literally took it. Russia came in, Vladimir Putin, while Obama was president, and annexed, took, Ukraine. We offer not one shred of help. We didn't offer any assistance. We didn't abide by the treaty or the pact that we had signed. And here's this lying little scum ball telling everybody how endangered Ukraine was because of Trump.

Who gave them the aid? They got the military aid that Trump promised and they ended up getting more than we had promised to give them. It was withheld for a matter of days, but they got it. They did not get any aid from Obama or Adam Schiff or the Democrats during the Obama eight years. They didn't get any assistance. We didn't follow through on a commitment we had made.

Barack Obama practically made sure that Vladimir Putin could come in and take part of Ukraine. And these people have the gall to go to the floor of the United States Senate today and claim that Donald Trump, by delaying aid, endangered our good buddy and ally, Ukraine, and put them at great risk. They got their aid. They got more than they were planning on getting.

We have a new relationship with Ukraine. Ukraine has always been a corrupt place, Eastern Bloc, communist related. It's corruption. It's communism. Got a reform president. Trump wants to make sure that they're not gonna continue the same kind of corruption before giving the money. None of this is anything but smart.

Our foreign policy with Ukraine, the way Trump handled it, is nothing but smart if you consider the United States as good guys. But besides that, Adam Schiff knows full well we sold out Ukraine during Obama, that we let Putin take Crimea. And yet here he is trying to tell people how important the aid that Trump denied was to the security of Ukraine.

It's Adam Schiff and Barack Obama and the Democrat Party which did not step up, did not step forward and help Ukraine at all, didn't even lift a finger when Russia and Putin came and annexed Crimea.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Here's the Schiff sound bites, audio sound bite number 23. And this is during his opening argument. Let's go ahead and listen to this and see if it's exactly as it was told to me.

SCHIFF: An attempt to use the powers of the presidency to cheat in an election for precisely this reason, the president's misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won.

RUSH: He actually said it. The son of a... actually said it. “An attempt to use the powers of the presidency to cheat in an election for precisely this reason, the president's misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box.” Meaning we can't wait for the American people to decide because you people don't know enough to throw the guy out. The Democrats have to be in charge of this. Your vote doesn't count anymore.

I'm telling you, folks -- do not doubt me -- they are digging a grave. I know it's tough to see it that way because the Drive-By Media heralds them and makes 'em look like heroes.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Listen to this again, July 13th, 2018, after 11 Russians had been indicted by Mueller.

ROSENSTEIN: There's no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime. There's no allegation that the conspiracy changed the vote count or affected any election result.

RUSH: That after the indictment of 12 Russians for hacking the Democrat National Committee. Schiff is so full of it, folks, the guy could probably float. I don't know.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: This is great. Schiff is now playing sound bites of Trump during the impeachment trial like we would play them on this program. He just played a sound bite of Trump trying to illustrate that Trump is trying to corrupt our politics by urging China to investigate the Bidens the way Ukraine is. I mean, there's some corruption that happened over there, China ought to investigate him too.

And of course these guys act like, “Give me the vapors, give me the vapors, Trump is trying to interfere in the elections, now he's trying to interfere in the Chinese elections. Trump is horrible.” This is so pathetic, these people are so damn pathetic, it's alternately painful and comical to watch.

We’re gonna start at number 8 in order, but before that number 27 because I referenced this, or earlier I talked about one of the things that Schiff -- Schiff was just wring his hands, talking about how Trump had imperiled our great friends in Ukraine, he refused to give them aid and made them very, very vulnerable to evils in Russia and so forth. When in fact it was the Obama administration that let Russia take Crimea. Here is Schiff making that point.

SCHIFF: President Trump undermined the integrity of our free and fair elections by pressing a foreign power to influence our most sacred right as citizens. Our right to freely choose our leaders. And he threatened our national security by withholding critical aid from a partner on the front lines of war with Russia, an aggressor that has threatened peace and stability on an entire continent. In so doing the president sacrificed not only the security of our European allies, but also our nation's core national security interests.

RUSH: I mean, folks, “President Trump undermined the integrity of our free and fair elections by pressing a foreign power to influence our most sacred right as citizens.” Let me present to you the other option. Let's say that we have a president who actually loves his country. Donald Trump loves America, cares about it, believes in it as the good guys and one of the agents of good for the world.

Donald Trump, folks, has been the most investigated president in my lifetime. He may in fact be the cleanest, in terms of genuine scandal or corruption politician in our lifetimes in Washington. I'm not saying this to stir anybody up. There's nobody more investigated, and they haven't found him -- you could go after the way he talks or the way he cracks jokes, he's he's just so out of bounds -- "Hey, Russia, could you find Hillary's emails?"

But in terms of legitimate scandals, corruption, crime, they don't have anything. Here's Trump, and he knows that Biden -- folks, if it ever comes out how corrupt -- and Biden's just one of countless lifetime Washingtonians. Joe Biden doesn't have any money. Joe Biden has never made any money other than a senator's salary. But here's his brother getting $54 million in guaranteed loans. Here's his son making $83 million here, $34 million over there. How? He's not alone. It's typical.

So the guy's running for president on the Democrat side. What if he's corrupt as the day is long? He's asking Zelensky to find out about it, to announce an investigation. What if Biden is ultimately blackmailable by some of these unsavory people in Ukraine or in Europe, wouldn't that be something that would be worth knowing?

No, these people look at Trump as he must really be afraid of Biden trying to get Ukraine to take Biden out. It's never been what this was about. It was about trying to find out what role Ukraine played in helping sabotage the Trump campaign. So here comes Schiff: “President Trump undermining the integrity of our free and fair elections.” Here, grab sound bite number 24 again. This is Rod Rosenstein. Here it is, July 13th, 2018.

ROSENSTEIN: There's no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime. There's no allegation that the conspiracy changed the vote count or affected any election result.

RUSH: That the indictment of Russians in the Russia investigation. No allegation in the indictment that any American citizen committed a crime. Trump's an American citizen. No allegation that this conspiracy, whatever these clowns were doing on Facebook, changed the vote count or affected any election result. And yet here is Schiff: Trump undermined the integrity of our free and fair elections by pressing a foreign power to influence our most sacred right as citizens.

That's what Schiff is doing. Schiff is attempting to influence your most sacred right, i.e., to vote. “Threatened our national security, withholding critical aid from a partner on the front lines in the war with Russia.” No, Schiff. You and Obama did that. Ukraine got their aide, and they got more than they bargained for.
