Radio host Rush Limbaugh excoriated the media on Monday for “incalculable” damage to the nation in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report ending.

The man behind “the golden EIB microphone” said it was a travesty that hundreds-of-thousands of articles were dedicated to a “hoax,” given that no evidence was found that President Trump’s 2016 campaign “conspired or coordinated” with Russia.

“I mean, it’s incalculable the damage that has been done to this country, to the American election system,” Mr. Limbaugh said. “The damage the media has done to itself is also incalculable, but they are never going to acknowledge it. They’re trying to cover up and, in fact, justify things they have been engaging in for over two and a half years.”

“I have suspected and known that it was a hoax since it began,” he continued. “There was a silent coup being run to get rid of Donald Trump, and it is still in operation! It has not been put to bed. It has not subsided. It has not gone dark. It is still right out in the open. You can see it every day on CNN. You can watch this coup take place every day on MSNBC. You can read about the coup every day in the New York Times and the Washington Post. It is ongoing”

The conservative said pundits and politicians will not relent regarding claims that Mr. Trump obstructed justice.

“It will continue now because Mueller left them an opening that he couldn’t actually exonerate Trump on obstruction,” Mr. Limbaugh said. “Vampires need blood, so they bite your neck. These people need to be fed. … That’s why CNN and MSNBC, the New York Times, Washington Post are all struggling mightily here to keep this alive with this claim that Mueller has alleged that Trump may have obstructed justice.”
