Rush Limbaugh predicted that this week’s public hearings in the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry will bear some predictable similarities to the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The conservative radio talk show host warned President Trump’s supporters during “The Rush Limbaugh Show” on Monday that Democrats will employ the same “strategy” used during Kavanaugh’s contentious hearings last year as multiple witnesses joined a “never-ending parade” to take down the nominee and ruin his reputation.
“It’s gonna be a big, big challenging week out there, because what we’re faced with, the Democrats are going for everything this week. They’re moving too fast here. They’re going for everything this week. They’re not gonna be able to contain themselves,” Limbaugh said as he began his radio show Monday.
“And what we’re gonna get is a repeat of the Kavanaugh strategy. As every effort they make blows up, they’re gonna have another one right in line behind it,” Limbaugh predicted. “We are gonna be overwhelmed with people stepping forward claiming Trump has been a bad actor since day one. It’s gonna be oppressive.”
The radio host and political commentator warned that Kavanaugh’s nomination hearing would be the “model” that Democrats use in this week’s pubic hearings in the impeachment inquiry of President Trump, which was sparked by his July phone call with the Ukraine president.
Trump has insisted that the call was “perfect” and has slammed House Democrats for their sham investigation amid a whistleblower complaint alleging he would withhold US aid unless Ukraine conducted an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.
Limbaugh likened the current Democrat frenzy to the way they handled Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings which were tied up in multiple last-minute allegations such as the accusations of sexual assault by California college professor, Christine Blasey Ford.
“I mean, if you recall, here comes Christine Blasey Ford, she has her charge, and what were we told? She didn’t want to come forward. She was so scared, so psychologically affected, something that happened 40 years ago, she couldn’t remember where, she couldn’t remember how she got home,” Limbaugh said.
“And then it didn’t have the impact they wanted, so here came Avenatti,” he continued, referring to attorney Michael Avenatti.
“It was a never-ending parade for about a week and a half. As every person they brought forth to try to destroy Kavanaugh failed, there was another one waiting in the wings,” Limbaugh added. “I will guarantee you that it is the same strategy they’re gonna employ here this week, getting started with public impeachment hearings.”
He recounted the number of testimonies so far that have amounted to little if anything in the ongoing inquiry.
“The whistleblower was the original weapon. The whistleblower was going to be the star of the show,” Limbaugh told his listeners. “Then Trump releases a transcript, and the whistleblower is rendered irrelevant. They tried to keep him alive in the media as a relevant factor. But he hasn’t been ever since the transcript.”
“They’re gonna screw this up like they screwed up the Kavanaugh thing. They’re gonna mess it up,” he said of the Democrats.
“They want it too much, and because they want it too much, they are making tactical and strategic mistakes,” Limbaugh explained.
“One of the biggest mistakes that they’re making is moving too fast,” he added. “Impeachment, real impeachment is a much more serious thing than the ‘slam bam thank you, ma’am,’ thing that they’re trying to run here.”
