The House voted 420-0 for Robert Mueller’s final report to be released publicly (four Republicans voted “present.”)

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler declared, “It is important that Congress stand up for the principle of full transparency.” That, of course, is pure, USDA Grade-A baloney. House Democrats have little use for transparency about their own offices, taxes or finances. They just want anything that might prove damaging or embarrassing to President Trump waved around in public like a giant foam finger. As for their claims that the report must be made public to “clear up any questions,” that’s also a load of cheap luncheon loaf. Before even seeing the report, Adam Schiff has already declared that he won’t accept it and will keep launching more investigations anyway.

For their part, Republicans are betting the Mueller probe will have labored mightily, expensively and at great length and found zero “Russian collusion.” But if the report remains secret, as the law requires, Democrats would keep flailing that dead horse forever.

Besides, what’s the point in even trying to keep it secret? Does anyone seriously believe that some Democratic committee member wouldn’t leak it to the New York Times or CNN faster than it would take the town gossip to blab about your Aunt Gertie’s hysterectomy? I’m amused that they even bothered to include the part about redacting classified information. If any classified information reflects badly on Trump, that would be the first thing leaked. They’d either rush over to Rachel Maddow’s TV studio or put it on Hillary’s email server, whichever spreads classified information faster.

Worth noting: this is a “nonbinding resolution.” So maybe it won’t be released, because Congress members are absolutely bound first and foremost to their duty to observe the law and not their desire to harm their political opponents.

Anyone buy that? If so, I have some lovely oceanfront property in South Dakota I’d like to sell you.

    The classification system was intended to protect the secrets of the government in the affairs of state and with regard to the military. Instead, what has become is the tool used by the bureaucracy to hide all the information that might jeopardize the unelected members of our shadow government government.
    We need to rethink and revise the ability of anyone in government being allowed to bury information under layers of classifications that insure it won't see daylight until long after they are outside the government.
    Lift the veil and make the running of this country as close to transparent as it can possibly be. Secrets create mistrust and promote clandestine operations.

    All well & good to release the Muller report , but what about investigating the Clintons, Obama& other Democrats that have done secretive & Illeagals things. Open up the cans of worms that the Democrats have been hoping that an investigation would not come any where near them. Lynch is another one! See if you can get that rolling.

    If you really want to understand what is going on in Washington, take a step back in time, look at history from the 1920's in Europe. look at how Hitler took over Germany, how Mussolini took over Italy, how the socialist took over Russia. This is all in history witch is not taught in our schools today. If you look at it all, then what is happening in our country today with many of the young in our schools and collages today, this country is on much the same path. Not good, scary, take a look at the new Democrat freshmen that were voted in this last election. The Democrat party no longer exists. It is the socialist party. The 2020 election is going to be the nastiest in the history of the country. Stuffed ballot boxes coming out of the wood work.

    Thank you, Governor, for telling it like it is, and for making me laugh at the same time! That humor is refreshing!

    C'mon. Don't they have anything better to do? Obviously NOT! Protecting Americans is a biggy that they got out of doing now. We don't need 2/3 of them.

    Amen. Perfect. I don't know much about Doug Collins but I must say he is standing up for millions of frustrated Americans. God bless him and God speed.

    I agree with Senator Graham that this investigation is "insurance" to get President Trump out of office and the investigators need to be investigated. This Russian collusion smear has been corrupt from the start. Whoever started this illegally should be investigated, put out of their position as this is treason.

    Full transparency is crucial.?
    Then WHY did Congress vote NOT to be transparent when asked for a list of CONGRESSPERSONS who utilized the secret sexual assault slush fund so we could vote accordingly? Calling BS on this incredibly bogus hypocrisy!

  • Gary Son

    Yeah, I want to see what this jerk has been wasting our tax dollars on for the last two years. And he needs to be investigated for destroying evidence.


    03/15/2019 05:56 PM

    I wish they'd use their own money when they do their witch hunts and not our tax dollars. I love President Trump and have never prayed so hard for one of our presidents.

    I am praying and hoping God had influence on the report and it is all about the Obama and Hillary corruption and emphasizes major jail time. I guess we can only leave this in God's hand, but something is telling me this is what the report will include. Hopefully thinking I hope not, if Mueller does tell the truth this will be so funny because of the 420-0 vote. Wow that would be a major slap in the face, egg on the face and give us hope again.

    This Witch Hunt is "purposely never" to end! It's All Out War Against President Trump! It will continue all through his first & second term. Darkness HATES the Light! Mob-Boss Hillary will Reap what the Clinton Crime family has Sowed! All the Wicked will! America needs revival! Repentance! Cry out to the Lord Jesus Christ!

    Gov Huckaby, thanks so much for your insights. Many of us have seen through the farce that is the cover up of the corruption that happened in the 2016 election. I can only hope and pray that the Republicans will finally come to their senses and demand that the Clintons, the Obama's, loretta lynch, Eric Holder and the rest of the criminals are brought to justice. I would gladly support a protest if it were organized. Being retired, I have the time. There are enough of out here we could perhaps make a statement that would be listened to. I just wish I could win a big lottery so that I could help finance. Please keep up your excellent work.
    Best regards,

    I'll see your Ocean Front property in South Dakota and raise you my Mountain top home in Nebraska! I do believe we are all sick and tired of these meaningless Congressional time wasters, I find this childish behavior ridiculous.

    Is it not true there are 435 members of the house? What happened to 11? I agree the Mueller report should be released as we know, those of us who have a brain, that it proves zero collusion except with hilary. H-m-m sounds fishy to me.

    How does the "House" have 420 votes? I thought it was 335 reps in the house and 100 in the Senate? Am I wrong?

  • Robert McFate

    There great at grandstanding but lousy at getting anything real done!

  • Nathan Paris

    03/15/2019 01:04 PM

    Of course Adam Schiff will continue investigating after Mueller has concluded. Investigating and making claims that he (Schiff) can't back up with facts is all he knows how to do! Educate voters. Make Responsible Voters Great Again!

    I read that President Trump says he does not want the Mueller report released. I can't think of a better way to get it released.

    Hey Gov- You are at your BEST today! You ARE FUNNY! I feel, though, someone should warn you about saying things like "grade A bologna" around Jerry Nadler, because if he THINKS you might have any ON YOU, he'll be ON YOU like a pickpocket on STEROIDS! As soon as I saw the NUMBERS I figured there HAD TO BE something SORDID in there about Trump! I think it's time for one of those SNAP ELECTIONS that these clowns try to force on OTHER countries right here in the good old USA. There will be TWO choices. 1- OK, LET THEM STAY, and 2- HANG THE BASTARDS! Judging by the comments from your readers, I think #2 could be the BIGGEST LANDSLIDE OF ALL TIME! And now that President Trump has legalized industrial hemp, we have ROPE by the TON! Tar and feathers is WAY TOO GOOD for this bunch. We don't need 420 Big Birds walking around Washington with signs saying UNEMPLOYED and HOMELESS, and we KNOW the crime rate in DC would SPIKE with that many KNOWN CRIMINALS set loose on a not so unsuspecting public. ANYBODY that hasn't come to the realization that these "people" and I use that word GENEROUSLY are a bunch of CROOKS is in Never Never Land. Say HI to Peter and Captain Hook for me! I HOPE AND PRAY that SOMEDAY, WE GOOD AMERICANS have the OPPORTUNITY to be REPRESENTED by people of TRUE CHARACTER, HONESTY AND DECENCY. I know you said on your show that the chance of you running for president was about the same as you becoming transgendered. You know, THERE ARE some DRESSES that would be very flattering on YOU. JUST SAYIN'! Anyway, THANKS for the good laugh today. It helps get over the PAIN of what we, in times of TOTAL JEST, call the NEWS! TW
