So, we’ve been told by the establishment media that the only reason President Donald Trump wanted to investigate the strange and sordid history of Ukrainian corruption is because he wanted dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
Radio host Rush Limbaugh has another theory, though — he thinks the president is looking for the genesis of the Mueller investigation.
Confused? Well, according to the conservative talk icon, the giveaway is the fact that Trump mentioned a company called CrowdStrike during the call.
CrowdStrike, for those of you who have forgotten the Democratic National Committee email hack, was the private cybersecurity firm that the DNC brought in to evaluate its servers after the hack. They’re the ones who determined that the hack came from Russia.
During the call, Trump spent a fair chunk of time talking about the firm.
“I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say CrowdStrike … I guess you have one of your wealthy people … The server, they say Ukraine has it,” Trump said, according to the transcript.
“I would like to have the attorney general call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine.”
That, to Rush, was a tipoff that Trump’s talk with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky wasn’t necessarily Biden-centric. As he pointed out, when it came to the DNC hack, “everybody has just assumed that the Russians were the guilty party only because the firm hired by the Democrats [CrowdStrike] said so.”
“But CrowdStrike is alleged to have gotten something big wrong about Ukraine,” the radio host said on his show Wednesday, according to t0 a transcript on RushLimbaugh.com.
