RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): Anyway, the other big news of the day, there's a Washington Post story. And it has another famous anonymous source. We don't know who the source is.
And the story says that the attorney general, William Barr, has told quote-unquote "associates" that he disagrees with [Michael] Horowitz's conclusion -- that's the inspector general report coming a week from yesterday, December 9 -- that he, Barr, disagrees with Horowitz's conclusion that the FBI had enough information in July 2016 to justify launching the investigation into the Trump campaign.
So the story is that Barr disagrees. He doesn't think they had enough information to start the investigation, he thinks it was a spy operation. Now we don't know if this is true or not, it's The Washington Post. They and The New York Times literally made up things, they literally created sources, made them anonymous out of thin air in order to have their own opinions reported as news. And make no mistake, that is what has happened, that is what's become of mainstream media.
The inspector general is so limited in what he can do. He can't really even compel testimony, the people he talks to are given two weeks to look at the report and lobby for changes and edits. And the inspector general is a deep stater, he's one of them, he's a swampist.
