Robert Mueller’s goal is to take down President Trump.
But he isn’t going about it in the way everyone thinks.
Rush Limbaugh exposed the secret trap the special counsel is laying for Trump.
Mueller was appointed to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election.
That led him to pursue the collusion angle.
It turned out to be a bust.
Pundits then speculated that Mueller’s real goal was to build a case that Trump obstructed justice when he fired FBI Director James Comey.
But Rush Limbaugh sees something else.
The king of conservative talk radio speculates that Mueller is actually trying to financially ruin Trump.
Limbaugh reacted to reports that Mueller was subpoenaing records from the Trump organization and believes this is an attempt to “nullify” the $900 million dollar loss Trump took on his 1995 tax return – which was illegally leaked to the press during the campaign – and force him to pay it back.
“Limbaugh accused Mueller of seeking to “nullify” Trump’s 1995 IRS claim of approximately $900 million in operational losses in order to pursue a reclamation of the money with added penalties and accrued interest:
And these requests, the subpoena for documents from the Trump Organization, I ask you again, what has that to do with the campaign and with collusion and with the Russians? They’ve already been looking into Trump business in Russia with the Miss, what is it, USA, whatever his pageant is.
Do you all remember during the early days of the campaign there was news that Trump, in a tax return something like 20 years ago, took a $900 million deduction that was granted and survived an audit by the IRS? Now, I forget the details. It had to do with losses that he had incurred in that year in building things. It was around 900 or $920 million deduction. I’ll never forget when it was reported because most people will never come close to ever having that in a lifetime, and to have a guy personally write that much off?
Anyway, I think Mueller wants that $920 million back. I think Mueller wants to prove that that was a faulty deduction. I think that they want to go back, they want to get Trump’s tax returns because they want to nullify that $900 million deduction, and then they want to collect 20 years of interest and penalties and wipe Trump out.”
Limbaugh has long suggested that it isn’t enough for Mueller and the swamp to take down Trump.
Their goal is to send a message to any political outsider who wishes to challenge the status quo—and that message is not only will they face investigations if they win, but they will also be ruined financially.
Do you think this is Mueller’s plan?
