RUSH:  We keep hearing how “qualified” Hillary Clinton is to be president.  I think it’s kind of like if somebody has to deny they’re a prostitute, then there must be some doubt about it.  If you have to keep telling us that Hillary Clinton’s uber-qualified, there must be some doubt about it.  It must not be self-evident.  It must not be apparent.  And the reason it is not apparent and self-evident is because it isn’t true.  The woman is no more qualified to be president than anybody else.

She’s certainly not more qualified than George Washington or Abraham Lincoln or anybody else, which is how they are promoting her. We keep hearing how qualified she is.  She’s well prepared to be president, more exposure to the president than anybody else.  Hillary Clinton is the most prepared to be impeached in advance of any presidential candidate this country has ever had!  Hillary Clinton will be elected to be impeached.  Yeah, we continue to learn about the Justice Department and this email case. 

By the way, I’m not being glib.  If elected, Hillary Clinton could be impeached based on what we already know, and there’s plenty more yet to be discovered.  Emails and other documents that could be used in impeachment proceedings are waiting to be found like Easter eggs laid out for 3-year-olds.  That’s why they destroyed the laptops.  Don’t think it’s ’cause they get rid of evidence like narcotics.  They got rid of those laptops to get rid of any evidence that we don’t know about yet.


RUSH: Chino Hills in California.  Alessandro.  Hi.  Great to have you with us.

CALLER:  Hi.  How are you?

RUSH:  I’m good.  Really good.  Oh, you’re 13 years old.  I just saw that, too.

CALLER:  Yes, sir.

RUSH:  Well, it’s great to have you here with us.

CALLER:  Thank you.  My question is, I play soccer, and in the games, there are referees, right?  So my question is, why doesn’t Hillary follow the rules of the FBI, and why doesn’t the FBI catch what she does such as private emails and those things?

RUSH:  You know, you have asked a perfect question.  It’s a question that somebody like you, at your age, looking at this, would be at the front of your mind.  How can she get away with not pay.  You just mentioned your soccer refs.  You have to listen to ’em; what they say goes, right?

CALLER:  Right.

RUSH:  Whether they’re right or wrong, they’re the authority on the field, and you have to do what they say. You have to play the rules of the game as they interpret them and all that.  Well, the answer to your question, Alessandro, is the reason that she doesn’t have to follow the rules of the FBI is because the FBI is not enforcing rules on her.

CALLER:  I see.

RUSH:  It’s no more complicated than that.  It’s as if you’re playing soccer and the referees are for the other team.  That’s what’s happening here.

CALLER:  Yeah?

RUSH:   The FBI’s part of the Department of Justice, and that’s part of the executive branch, which means President Obama is the boss.  He appoints the leader of the Department of Justice, the cabinet position and the FBI, and they serve at his pleasure.  Now, in the past those people have been pretty much independent and tried to remain unaffected by the political wishes of the president.  There have been examples in the past where that hasn’t worked, but this… It is clear that the FBI, as the referee or the enforcement of the rules, the laws, is not applying them to her.

Now, you might say, “Well, why?” and that’s the $64,000 question.  That, we can only guess.  I can tell you what my guess is, Alessandro.  I think the reason that the FBI’s doing what it’s doing is because the FBI — the people there, the director — does not want to be the person who took action that damaged the nominated candidate of the Democrat Party for president.  I think that’s something that the man does not want to live with the rest of his life, doesn’t want it on his resume. You know, let the American people decide.

The Democrat Party nominated her and I think he just doesn’t want to take the steps to cause her problems in that regard.  As such, the rules don’t apply.  I mean, they’ve had to invent this new thing for her that she’s not guilty of any of this because they couldn’t find any intent.  She intended to break the rules, which, Alessandro. That’s clearly not true.  And it doesn’t matter, you know, ignorance is no excuse if you break the law.  You know, you can say, “I didn’t know I couldn’t steal those Skittles from the 7-Eleven!”  It doesn’t matter.  They’re still gonna get you for stealing the Skittles.  Well, they’re telling us that Mrs. Clinton didn’t intend to break any of these laws, and so there’s really nothing we can do.  It’s real flimsy.  So people have lost a lot of confidence in the referee here.

CALLER:  Right.

RUSH:  Doesn’t seem right, does?  I mean, you’ve got your soccer matches; you’ve got the referees enforcing the rules on both teams; and here’s — and that’s nothing compared to the FBI.  The FBI, that’s serious stuff.  People running for pre, that’s serious stuff.  And for them to be excused from following the rules, it doesn’t seem right, does it?

CALLER:  No, it doesn’t.

RUSH:  Well, obviously, ’cause you called and asked about it.  So what do you think needs to happen to people like this, or in situations like this? What do you think needs to happen to fix it?

CALLER:  Well, the FBI needs to try to stop these type of things and that’s what I think.

RUSH:  Yeah.  Makes sense to me.  Well, look, Alessandro, I’m glad you called.  I mean, it’s great to hear from you, and I’m flattered that you are in the audience.

CALLER:  Thank you.

RUSH:  Thank you very much.
