Justice Department officials’ reported discussions about using the 25th Amendment to oust President Donald Trump was “a silent coup,” radio host Rush Limbaugh said Sunday.
In a interview on “Fox News Sunday,” the conservative Trump ally railed at the explosive remarks by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in a "60 Minutes" interview set to air Sunday.
Limbaugh said the intent of the reported discussions was clear — and that those involved ought to be jailed.
“People unelected, simply because they don't … like where he came from… decide …the American people's decision was invalid and began a systematic process to get him thrown out of office. This is a silent coup,” he said.
“These guys, if you ask me, ought to be the ones in jail. They are to be the ones under investigation. What they have done working with agents in the Obama intelligence agencies is simply unprecedented."
Limbaugh also railed at political attempts by “both parties” to dump the president.
“Both parties have people that are still trying to get rid of Donald Trump,” he said, saying even legislative efforts regarding illegal immigrants carry a message to voters that “electing Trump was pointless, worthless, he can't protect you, you can't stop us, he can't do what he said he was going to do because we hate him so much were not going to allow him to do that.”
