Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh just slammed Democrat Congressman Jerry Nadler for not showing up at the House Rules Committee hearing Tuesday, adding that the inspector general report has now “exposed” Nadler as a liar.
‘The IG report has totally exposed Nadler as a full-fledged, 100% liar’
“The IG report has totally exposed Nadler as a full-fledged, 100% liar,” Limbaugh said on his program Tuesday. “This is great. I’ve continued to dig into the IG report.”
Limbaugh said the Democrats on the Rules Committee are “continuing to lie through their teeth about the supposed misconduct of Donald Trump.”
Since Nadler was unavailable, reportedly due to a family emergency, Democratic Congressman Jamie Raskin took his place.

Rush said Raskin continued to use two repeated lies during Tuesday’s hearing.
“Well, I can give an example,” Rush said. “Nadler cannot be at the Rules Committee hearing today because there’s some sort of family emergency in New York. I don’t know what it is. Doesn’t matter. So Jamie Raskin, a Democrat from Maryland, is taking his place. And these people are just lying through their teeth. They are continuing to lie through their teeth.”
‘They know they’re lying about this!’
Limbaugh continued, “This guy said the president has abused his office, engaged in misconduct, and they give the quote where the president said, ‘Look at Article II. I can do anything I want.’ They know they’re lying about this! He didn’t say he can do anything he wants.”
“It was in the context of an interview two different times,” Rush insisted. “One with George Stephanopoulos in which he’s saying Article II gave him the power to fire Robert Mueller if he wanted to, could do anything he wants regarding Mueller.”
“They know they’re taking that out of context,” El Rushbo continued. “They know that they’re lying about this.”
‘If they’re lying about one thing, you have to assume they’ll be lying about a lot of things’
“And if they’re lying about one thing, you have to assume they’ll be lying about a lot of things,” Limbaugh said. “The one thing that is unmistakable in all of this, they don’t even have a crime. They do not have an impeachable offense. The second thing that Raskin did, they’re still repeating the Trump joke, that Trump asks Russia to go find 30,000 Hillary emails and five hours later, the Russians hacked the server.”
“That’s not possible,” Rush said. “When Trump cracked that joke, the DNC server had already been hacked, it had already been shut down. We still don’t know who really did it. But it was out of the way.”
“Trump’s cracking a joke and making fun of the media and making fun of the Democrats, and these clowns throw it in their articles of impeachment,” Limbaugh added. “They’re just lying through their teeth. And it’s over and over and over again, and the media, of course, enables it, trying to make it look like it’s real, and none of it is.”
Earlier this month, Limbaugh told Fox News that the Democrats were only hurting themselves with their “pure, raw hatred” for President Trump.
