RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): Now that Trump has named John Durham -- Look, he's not called a special counsel but he may as well be one. And let me reiterate, this guy's experience is investigating the FBI, investigating informants and their use, investigating the corruption in the FBI, and don't forget: He found that Robert Mueller kept four people -- innocent people -- in jail for years to protect the informant status of Whitey Bulger. And those people ended up suing, their families. Two of them died in jail, by the way. Two of them got out, once this was discovered.

Previously:

Sean Hannity’s effort to tie Robert Mueller to Whitey Bulger was bullshit

Rush Limbaugh is already attacking the redacted Mueller report: "No matter what it says, we're going to be lied to" 

The many times Trump lawyers and propagandists demanded Mueller be removed
