Radio host Rush Limbaugh on Thursday sounded the alarm on the Russia investigation and its origins, saying the "stakes for the country" have "never been higher in my life."

In his daily radio show, Limbaugh decried the "political effort to destroy" President Donald Trump that was the impetus for special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

And with its conclusion ramping up talk about impeachment, "now, it is an existential war," he said.

"And the stakes? I cannot tell you how high they are for our country," he said. "I think the stakes, without question, are the highest they have ever been in my life. The stakes for the country, what kind of country we're going to be going forward, have never been higher in my life."

"And if we let the people running this coup off, then we will have lost the republic to the deep state. These people must not get away with this," he added.

"I'm 68 years old. I don't know how this would compare to Civil War," Limbaugh commented. "Obviously, it would pale in many ways to the divisions in the Civil War. But that was then, and this is now. And I am telling you that the stakes for the country are the greatest, the highest they've ever been in my life."

Limbaugh said most concerning is the idea of "criminalizing political differences."

"But in our system, the presumption of innocence and the demand and the requirement for proof beyond a reasonable doubt is what separates us," he said. "And if these people get away with reordering that, they will have succeeded in getting away with politicizing, criminalizing political differences."
