LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
By Eric Lieberman
Citing an exclusive report by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s investigative group, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh voiced frustration that Democrats are sidestepping media attention due to potential improprieties.
FBI agents recently seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator, according to sources. The Pakistani-born longtime IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman who resigned in disgrace has since tried to retrieve the hard drives. Limbaugh noted and lamented that many of the popular news outlets have hardly touched the story.
“Here we got leaks, and here we’ve got ‘sources with knowledge of the investigation’ talking about Democrats,” Limbaugh said. “Well, The Daily Caller’s been the only ones on it. I mean, they’re the ones who did that story two weeks ago. They revived it a bit today. But nobody’s picking up on this. It makes sense. This is the exact kind of story the Democrats and the Drive-By Media would want to ignore.”

Limbaugh notes how much of the clamoring over allegations of misconduct is centered on Republicans, specifically the Trump administration, even though, to him, there appears to be a lot of conjecturing and little evidence.
“Exactly what they’re claiming happened with Trump and Russia and all this, it actually did happen with the Democrats!” the political personality said. “Their server was hacked; they wouldn’t turn the servers and any of the network equipment over to the FBI for forensic analysis. Instead, the IT aide aide to Debbie ‘Blabbermouth’ Schultz and three of his family members were working on IT for a number of Democrats in the House, and the FBI has seized computer hard drives from this guy.”
Limbaugh admits that, while there are no clear indications of what could be on the aforementioned hard drives (at least yet), it could be fairly damning not only because the IT worker desperately wants them back, but also because there was overt evidence of the DNC rigging the 2016 election against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“I think this is what Trump was talking about when he sends out that tweet wondering why Republicans and his ‘beleaguered’ attorney general are not investigating all of this,” said Limbaugh.
“Because whereas there’s probably nothing to find in terms of what’s being alleged about Trump,” Limbaugh concluded, “there’s a gold mine to be found among the Democrats, particularly over at the Democratic National Committee.”
