'None of It's Real': Rush Limbaugh Blasts 'Fake, Trumped-Up' Russia Probe
Rush Limbaugh on Monday called Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation "fake" and a setup.
The conservative radio host said that former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos was "entrapped" by the FBI by being told that the Russians had thousands of Hillary Clinton's emails.
"Papadopoulos did not independently know this. He was fed this information," he said.
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) agreed on "America's Newsroom" that the probe is being done "for political purposes."
"This is the scandal of our lifetime," he said.
Biggs said that the investigation has gone far beyond its original intentions, and he called it a "conspiracy" and "corruption."
He also agreed with Limbaugh's sentiments that the investigation was a setup, originally stemming just from Papadopoulos.
“We need to, in Congress, continue to subpoena people in ... We need to make sure that there's prosecutions done for people who have been corrupt,” he added.

Biggs also criticized Mueller, saying that he's now going after President Trump and trying to find crimes.
"That's not the American way," he said.
