‘All roads in the effort to get rid of Trump lead right back to the top’
(WND) – It’s abundantly clear now that the Obama administration tried to torpedo Donald Trump, first as a candidate and then as president-elect, using a Democratic Party-funded “dossier” of Russian propaganda to obtain warrants to spy on Trump’s campaign.
But talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh says the Obama administration went even further, by planting “moles” throughout the federal bureaucracy to undermine Trump.
He noted Tuesday that Barack Obama grew the National Security Council staff from about 100 employees to well over 200.
Trump didn’t immediately fire the extraneous workers when he took office.
Among Obama’s hires were the Vindman brothers, one of whom testified against Trump in the House impeachment investigation. Another was Eric Ciaramella, the reported whistleblower whose hearsay claim triggered the Democrats’ impeachment campaign. And there was Sean Misko, who was heard plotting with Ciaramella to bring down Trump just weeks after the inauguration. Misko then went to work for the lead impeachment manager, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.
“And then you remember how Obama multiplied the number of federal agencies who had access to classified data? I think what this actually was… I think as Obama was leaving office, he expanded the National Security Council staff and then enlarged the number of agencies that had access to whatever classified data they did. He planted moles,” Limbaugh said.
“This is where they planted the moles. This is where they planted the moles all over the NSC. The Vindman twins, Fiona Hill, the whistleblower, Abigail Grace (who left the NSC shortly after the Trump phone call). She went to work for Schiff. So did Sean Misko. Every one of these people is an Obama holdover. I remember asking, ‘Why in the hell are they still there? Why didn’t Trump clean house and reduce this number back down to 75 to a hundred people who are working for him?’ I don’t know the answer.
“But my guess would be that he had people advising him not to do it,” he said.
“But I think that’s where all of this came from. I think it’s where the Trump-Russia collusion and all of this came from, the FBI and that element of it, too. But the inside Trump administration moles, the turncoats, whatever you want to call ’em. They are Obama appointees that had jobs expanded as Obama was leaving office for the express purpose of protecting Obama’s achievements and sabotaging whoever was to come next — in this case, Trump,” he said.
He said the “garbage coming out of these NSC people and the leaks” was possibly the most damaging to Trump.
“Obama holdovers in the National Security Council. I mean, all roads in the effort to get rid of Trump lead right back to the top of the Obama administration. I don’t think there’s any question about it.”
