One of the benefits of being a subscriber to the Huckabee newsletter is that from time to time we offer you practical advice you can really use. And today is your lucky day –- this is one of those times.
So, here’s what we recommend: If some morning at 6AM, a group of FBI agents knock on your door with a warrant to search your home and confiscate any electronic devices on the premises, just let them in and invite them to make themselves at home while they raid it. Offer them a refreshing beverage to enjoy as they look through all your personal things. When they encounter a phone, laptop, hard drive or any electronic device and ask you if it belongs to you, tell them, “No, it belongs to Hunter Biden.”
They will immediately turn away from it and ignore it, leaving it exactly as they found it. Then, when they encounter the next electronic device and ask you whose it is, tell them, “Oh, that one belongs to Hunter Biden as well.” They will ignore it and keep looking. Guaranteed.
You might even offer it to them, and assure them that it has evidence of President Biden committing various crimes with his son, Hunter.
Trust us, they’ll react as if the device were radioactive. Not only will they not take it, they won’t even bother to take a peek at what’s on it.
At this point, you might just save everybody’s time by saying to the agents, “Come to think of it, every piece of electronic equipment in the area covered by your warrant happens to belong to Hunter Biden.” The agents will immediately head for the door. “Sorry we bothered you,” the lead agent will say. “Thanks for the delicious beverage,” the last one will say as he politely closes your front door on the way out.
Don’t believe me? Rudy Giuliani would.
Little did he know that when FBI agents raided his residence on Wednesday and were told that three hard drives found there belonged to Hunter Biden --- and they did --- the FBI would have no interest in them whatsoever. What they were after were all of Giuliani’s devices, which, according to his attorney, are “replete” with communications protected by attorney-client privilege.
NEWSMAX cites a source close to Giuliani who says, “For two years, Rudy was [Trump’s] personal attorney, knew his whole legal defense in these probes, and also was the point man on all the election stuff. They used this warrant to get information on Trump. This is about the weaponization of the Justice Department for political purposes.”
We have speculated that the “election stuff” is at least part of what they want to see. Victoria Toensing, who had her phone confiscated by the FBI on Wednesday as well, has some ties to Ukraine but also has been working on Giuliani’s team to uncover election fraud.
The probe into Giuliani is widely reported to be focusing on his activities in Ukraine, involving allegations that he failed to register as a foreign agent with the Foreign Agents Registration Act, or FARA, when he advocated for the dismissal of the U.S. ambassador in Kiev. But he maintains that he was acting not on behalf of foreign nationals but in the interest of his client, President Trump.
As Tucker Carlson pointed out on Thursday night, Giuliani is at least the third attorney to have his personal communications with President Trump seized by the “Justice” Department. The former NYC mayor was a guest on his show. It’s a must-see interview.
What I want to see now are the circumstances surrounding this warrant: who applied for it, who approved it and with what justification. This is very serious; we’ve got a DOJ that obviously is on a search-and-destroy mission, one that operates under two completely different standards of “justice.”
In the meantime, if FBI agents show up at your door with a warrant to take your electronic devices, you know what to tell them.
