The Swamp Has Trump Outnumbered — But He’s Still Standing
RUSH: This is Harry next, Valparaiso, Indiana. Welcome, sir.
CALLER: Hey, thank you very much, Rush. Hey, the reason I wanted to call — it’s a very serious question, not facetious at all. And that is, Trump won the election. We voted for him. We control both the House, the Senate. Trump at the head of the Department of Justice. And yet after all of this we look up and Trump’s lawyer’s office is getting raided. Not the Clinton Foundation. Not Perkins Coie. And I don’t understand that. Is there a reason that can be easily explained?
RUSH: I’m like you. Your question is utterly dripping with common sense. We won the election. It was a duly constituted and fair election. We won the presidency. We have the House of Representatives and the Senate. Therefore Trump’s people theoretically staff the president’s cabinet and the American bureaucracy. And by all rights, all of the criminality engaged in by the Clintons and by the Democrats ought to be under investigation.
It defies common sense. Trump wins and he’s under investigation? And now we learn on an entirely bogus premise, and nobody can end it. And, meanwhile, the collusion and the actual rigging of elections is now widely known and accepted to have been all on the Democrat side.
The Washington establishment is a very, very powerful, exclusive and august club, and their power resides not in who wins and loses elections. And that is their great strength. They remain in power and run that town whether Democrats or Republicans win the presidency and the House and Senate. Now, it’s not quite that simple, but I’m giving you an overview here. You think that answer doesn’t fully explain this, and I’m telling you it does.
That’s why the midterms, I think, are kind of important. So is 2020 with the presidential race, if Trump’s on the ballot, it doesn’t matter. When I say it doesn’t, the Washington establishment’s power exists regardless who wins elections; that’s true. But one of the reasons it works is because Republicans are so used to rolling over and not really fighting back because that’s what they’ve been always had to do to stay free, if you will, within the swamp or within the establishment.
Anyway, I know it’s frustrating. You just have to keep plugging away at it each and every day. And, you know, elections matter, and public opinion does matter. A lot of people think that it doesn’t. But it does.
