RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): And so, because [Attorney General Jeff Sessions] had rubbed elbows with [Russian diplomat] Sergey Lavrov, he felt it necessary to recuse himself from the Russia investigation. Because there was also an allegation that, as a surrogate, spokesman, a supporter of Trump's on the campaign trail, that somehow him ending up as attorney general overseeing anything with the Russians would be illegal. It would have a sense of impropriety. So Sessions, who is just overflowing with honor and decency, recused himself before talking to [President Donald] Trump about it. Trump was livid. I was livid! there was no need for Sessions to recuse himself. And because he did, we now have [special counsel Robert] Mueller. Well not because he -- I don't want to lay that off on Attorney General Sessions -- but the point is his recusal was totally unnecessary because it was done on the basis of made-up B.S. I so want to use the words that B.S. stand for. I just, I -- but I'm not going to because of a sense of honor and propriety here. But I'm telling you, this, this is so beyond the pale. So Jeff Sessions has no business being recused. If anything -- if anything -- President Trump has now more justification than ever for firing Mueller. Mueller was in on this as the previous director of the FBI before [James] Comey. During the Obama administration.

[Mueller] has been investigating no crime, with no limits on money or on investigators, on the basis of something that is entirely made up: the Trump dossier.
