The real message being delivered to President Donald Trump during Monday’s House Intelligence Committee hearing was that if Trump keeps trying to “draining the swamp” of Washington he is risking his presidency, according to talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

Limbaugh said the hearings are one part of a carefully constructed narrative trying to tell the American people that Trump’s presidency is “illegitimate and unjust.”
Limbaugh said that claims of Russian interference are just a cover for the real game being played.
“[T]he purpose of this is to further the narrative that Trump is illegitimate, that he should not be president, that his election was the result of tampering by the Russians,” Limbaugh said.
“So the objective is that Trump either stops this reform business he’s got, stops this drain-the-swamp stuff, and starts letting the Washington Republicans run the town again, or they’re gonna impeach him,” he said.
Limbaugh said that both sides of the aisle are digging in their heels to rein in Trump.
“[A]ll of this is can be explained simply by saying, ‘Look at how terrified they are in the Washington-New York establishment, of Donald Trump and draining the swamp.’ The Never Trumpers on both sides of the aisle. There are conservative Never Trumpers today celebrating over the fact that Comey made it official that there’s an investigation of Trump and colluding with the Russians,” he said.
The hearings are aimed at Trump, he said.
“That’s the message being sent today: ‘You either straighten up and fly right or you’re gone,’” Limbaugh said. “‘We’re coming for you, is the message of these hearings today.”
Limbaugh noted that not one shred of evidence supports the contention that Russia impacted the election, but that it has served a political purpose.
“[T]he Democrats and the media have so stoked this story that their base believes it. And the Democrats on this committee and the Democrats in the Senate, the Democrats everywhere, are literally scared to death of the day when it will be officially announced that there was no collusion, when this Comey investigation ends and they can’t prove any collusion between Trump and the Russians,” he said.
Limbaugh voiced his disgust with Capitol Hill.
“James Comey says the Russians are trying to undermine faith in our elections. Maybe. But I’ll tell you what’s happening today on Capitol Hill is doing more to undermine faith in our elections than anything the Russians have done,” he said.
