RUSH: Last week — late last week, Thursday and Friday — there appears in various media stories about how one, two, and then three prominent Democrats expressed the need for the Democrat Party to start walking back all this talk of impeachment. First, it was just one, and then another one. It ended up being three people. I don’t remember their names right off the bat; doesn’t matter. And it caught my attention, obviously.
Why walk back this notion of impeachment? And there were two reasons. One reason is, there is not a crime here. Despite all of this irresponsible reporting, there isn’t a crime, and there isn’t any collusion. Second thing is just that. There are people who have, over the course of the last three weeks, on the Democrat side, tiptoed into the water and said, “We haven’t any evidence.” Dianne Feinstein to Wolf Blitzer twice, for example. There was another Democrat on Grassley’s committee that said, “Yeah, no, we don’t have any evidence. We haven’t seen any evidence yet.” Former CIA director for Obama, Michael Morell, about two weeks ago was on MSNBC.
He said there isn’t any evidence of any collusion.
So they’ve been tiptoeing around this. You put that together with the talk by the Democrats that they need to walk back impeachment, and what do you have? You have, I think, a potentially explosive and destructive thing awaiting the Democrats. What have they done? Let’s go back to the campaign. Why did everybody think that Hillary Clinton was gonna win in a landslide, particularly her supporters and her and her campaign? They were so confident, they didn’t even campaign in states they thought were a lock. They were arrogant, overly confident. And why? Because they believed their own media.
