The conservative media, including radio host Rush Limbaugh, is pushing back, trying to discredit special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and the indictments announced on Monday.

“None of this is real,” Limbaugh told his radio on Monday, according to a report by NPR.

When a listener suggested Mueller had “gone rogue” and might be aiming to sink Trump, Limbaugh responded: “This is the coup. If Hillary had been elected, none of this would be happening, other than they still put Trump in jail as a message to the outsider: Don’t dare try this.”

Conservative media outlets have echoed Limbaugh’s sentiments and tried to focus on Hillary Clinton and the need to investigate her.

George Papadopoulos, a former foreign policy adviser to President Trump, is the first campaign aide to plead guilty as part of the special counsel’s widening investigation into possible collusion between the president’s associates and the Russian government.

Papadopoulos, 30, who admitted to lying to FBI agents, is also the first aide reach a plea agreement in exchange for cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

The young Greek-American, whom Trump called an “excellent guy” in a March 2016 interview with the Washington Post, was part of a plot to secure a meeting between the future president and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Guardian reports

In April 2016, Papadopoulos met with a mysterious London professor who claimed to have “dirt” on Hillary Clinton in the form of “thousands of emails.”

The potentially game-changing development was announced on the same day Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort and adviser Rick Gates surrendered to the FBI and were indicted on numerous charges, including conspiracy, money-laundering and foreign lobbying violations.
