Rush to Trump Lawyers: 'Where's the Beef'?
America's conservative icon derides the lack of massive voter fraud evidence.
On his radio program Monday, conservative icon Rush Limbaugh observed the failure of President Donald Trump’s legal team to present any hard evidence to back up last week’s bombshell claims on massive election fraud.
“You call a gigantic press conference like that — one that lasts [over] an hour — and you announce massive bombshells, then you better have some bombshells,” Limbaugh stated. “There better be something at that press conference other than what we got. … I talked to so many people who were blown away by it, by the very nature of the press conference. [Trump’s team] promised blockbuster stuff and then nothing happened, and that’s just — it’s not good.” He then added, “If you’re gonna do a press conference like that with the promise of blockbusters, then there has to be something more than what that press conference delivered.”
We all know the evidence awaits the court, not the press conference, but still — time is running out.
It’s important to note that this cogent observation comes from Rush Limbaugh, a man who profoundly loves this country and who has dedicated his life to promoting and protecting the American ideal of Liberty while exposing the anti-constitutional schemes of Democrats and the Left. Furthermore, Limbaugh was one of the earliest conservatives to support Trump’s run for the presidency and has steadfastly stood up for the president at every turn. That fact was recognized this past February, when Trump, in unprecedented fashion, awarded America’s Anchorman with the Medal of Freedom during his State of the Union Address. All of which is to highlight the fact that Rush is no turncoat. Rather, he’s a straight shooter, which is why millions of Americans love him.
Limbaugh is simply asking for actual evidence, not mere hearsay and accusations. Should Rush now be canceled for daring to state the obvious?
While Trump has clearly not given up the legal fight, it appears that he at least tacitly agrees with Limbaugh’s assessment of the situation. That point was brought home by two things: His legal team tellingly distanced itself from Sidney Powell, and the president directed General Services Administrator Emily Murphy to initiate the presidential transition process.
“I want to thank Emily Murphy at GSA for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our Country,” Trump stated. “She has been harassed, threatened, and abused — and I do not want to see this happen to her, her family, or employees of GSA.” The president emphasized that this is no concession, however. “Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail!” Trump said. “Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country, I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same.”
Murphy, for her part, made it clear that Trump never pressured her to delay initiating the transition process. As she stated in a letter to Joe Biden, “I have dedicated much of my adult life to public service, and I have always strived to do what is right. Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and available facts. I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any Executive Branch official — including those who work at the White House or GSA — with regard to the substance or timing of me decision.”
Finally, Michigan’s election board voted to certify the state’s vote totals, reflecting a win for Biden, by a 3-0 vote, with one Republican abstaining. In Pennsylvania, meanwhile, Trump’s legal team failed to convince Judge Matthew Brann of massive fraud, as he rejected its request that he discard millions of legal votes. Brann pointedly noted that Trump’s team failed to provide “factual proof of rampant corruption.” He wrote that its “strained legal arguments” were “without merit,” and its “speculative accusations” were “unsupported by evidence.”
The fact of the matter is, unless some major evidence of massive voter fraud is suddenly presented, there appear to be few available avenues to turn the election to Trump.
