Our esteemed intelligence community got it spectacularly wrong. So it appears that we have one of two possible explanations:

1) The top people at the DOJ (Loretta Lynch), CIA (John Brennan) and FBI (Andrew McCabe, James Comey and that crowd) were unwitting dupes, easily “played” by Hillary’s henchmen at Fusion GPS because they hated Trump so much. They truly believed that Donald Trump was selling America down the river for Vladimir Putin.

2) The top people at the DOJ (Lynch), CIA (Brennan) and FBI (that crowd) were willing accomplices, knowingly “playing along” with Hillary’s henchmen at Fusion GPS because they hated Trump so much? They deliberately pushed the false narrative that Donald Trump was selling America down the river for Vladimir Putin.

Commentary continues below advertisement

It’s one or the other, and neither is good. Stunningly incompetent or thoroughly corrupt. As they’re generally sticking to their story instead of sighing with relief after the special counsel found no basis for allegations of Russian conspiracy, I lean strongly towards the second explanation. If they truly had been played, they would be falling all over themselves to apologize to the American people for the last two years of chaos that resulted from their incompetence. They would celebrate the fact that the highest office in the land hadn’t been compromised by Putin. And they would sincerely apologize to Trump for repeatedly attaching the word “TRAITOR” to his name. 

John Brennan did try lamely to say he might have had some “bad intelligence.” Not buying it –- not in the context of everything we know. When you go on TV as the former head of the CIA and accuse the President of TREASON, you’d better be 100 percent sure of your intelligence. His accusations last August (long after we knew about the serious problems with bias at the FBI) were so outrageous that even Chuck Todd at NBC called him on it: “A lot of people hear the former CIA director accusing the sitting President of the United States of treason –- that’s monumental, that’s a monumental accusation.” Brennan doubled down, said he regretted nothing, and defended himself by citing his training as an “intelligence professional.” Even now, he can’t come out and apologize humbly for his terrible accusations against the President.

Former FBI officials were tossing out similar accusations as recently as a few weeks ago. Hear any apologies coming from them now? And Adam Schiff, who, sadly, chairs the House Intelligence Committee, is doubling down as well. As William McGurn writes for THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, he sounds like O.J. Simpson resolving to find the real killer.

These people speak from positions --- or former positions --- of high authority. That is one big reason why, as of Sunday (after the release of the Mueller report and the announcement that no indictments were called for), according to a FOX News poll, 44 percent of Americans still believe the Trump campaign was compromised by Russia. The Democrats can keep this going as long as they keep calling for “the full report!!” That is a sham; they know that grand jury testimony and material that violates the rights of the innocent cannot be released.

And as long as they maintain their charade, acting as if the report hasn’t even been released, that 44 percent will double down as well. Folks, believing doesn’t make it true. It must take a lot of hate to maintain that fiction. After all, even the most partisan among us should celebrate that we don’t have a President who is beholden to the Kremlin.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/mueller-exposes-spy-chiefs-11553555713

As for members of the media, who likewise aren’t rushing to microphones to apologize to the President or the public for getting it wrong, John Steele Gordon, author of AN EMPIRE OF WEALTH, has some choice words for them. He gets it exactly right.

    Mike, super summary of the most destructive political scandal in American history! Why "destructive?" A no-brainer, because this TRUE collusion is now exposed to the entire world, and our enemies are salivating over it. Unfortunately, many of those "enemies" are thriving within our own borders - and in our own government! My lifetime will have been realized when I see this coterie of treasonous "public servants' have to unload their own pallet of orange jumpsuits, and don them. How far should a true and ethical probe go? Right to the top, because it defies logic and common sense that all of these subterranean activities could have been planned and executed without the knowledge of Barack Obama.

    The Dems continue to say there is no border crisis/emergency which we all know is another lie. For those of us in border states another issue has come into play. Both Texas & AZ have huge border issues & AZ has another huge issue... the Dems are already hard @ Martha McSally w/lots of $ flowing in from George Soros or whomever. So, the RNC needs to be front & center NOW, not just later & someone needs to put a cork in Trump re: McCain as there are still many older, loyal GOP'ers in AZ who may not agree w/Trumps rhetoric so, let's not cause unnecessary voting issues. Also, AZ like TX is still getting many CA's moving in who may still vote as if in CA. McSally needs support NOW! AZ has gone from Red to Purple & could easily, it seems, go Blue. We've lived here 37 years & based on my memory it's been RED... let's not change that now! Thank you. Always appreciate your commentary, we also watch your program on TBN weekly.

    Sir, ever since the Kremlin assassinated Paul I before his son Alexander, the "intelligence" goons are abounding. Rabbi NachmaN saved our collective posteriors by writing a holy note on the Jewish calendar date 5566 28 7 which allowed NelsoN to defeat both the French and Spanish fleets on NapoleoN in one single day. Almost as if Samson got revenge for his second eye (the private eye?). These two armies (French/Spanish) were pro-slavery and anti-Gd (Haitians now served the British King (a secret fan of Napoleon) as free men). President Trump will have the power to fight the scourge of mankind (the "intelligence" community) if he successfully brings the second son of Rachel (R. Nachman). There will be no greater accomplishment in history than fulfilling the promise to Josef, "Pakod Pakodeti" this is the "circumbcision from above".
    As a serious man of Gd you have the credentials to explain this to him. He has just received the real estate that puts the holy of holy in his jurisdiction. Moses carried the bones alone until age 120 exactly!

    You know, it seems to me I remember either Brennan or Clapper ( or maybe both ) testifying to Congress before they had the Mueller investigation that they could find no evidence of President Trump colluding with Russia. The Mueller says the same thing. Why don't these people throw down the shovel? They haven't dug a deep enough hole for themselves?

    Don't hold your breath expecting any of these to apologize. It will not happen. They will be defending their illegal actions as they are marched off to prison. I do think that once a person leaves public service ie FBI directors, DOJ officers, CIA investigators and directors they should be stripped of their security clearance. I thought that already happened. I know when I left my position with the state of Texas, I turned in my keys and no longer had computer access to any information. You walk away and start over at a new job leaving the trappings of the old one behind. These guys and gals want to walk away and hang onto to their access to secret information securing their feelings of power and control. Time for that to end in this age of electronics and serious breaches of national security.

    The demonrats will never admit to any of this because they all knew everything was a lie! Mueller was a plant by the demonrats he delivered the Uranium 1 sample to the Russians for the traitor Clinton! Tom Fitton and Judicisl Watch and their relentless pursuit of truth led to allowing us to see the real criminals behind the scenes! This entire charade of deceit and lies was perpetrated by the muslim spy that usurped our presidency for 8 years, then appointing the traitor clinton as Secretary of State to try and finish our country off by handing us to the Chinese and Russians! The spy guaranteed her the presidency in 2016 that was the final pursuit of the destruction of our nation, but they didn’t see Our Holy Father decide to heal our land and install President Trump to restore justice and the rule of law equally for all Americans!! The muslim spy usurped our presidency as a foreign exchange student thus he was a foreign operative, constituting that he was a military spy because he was Commander In Chief! He and Soros as leaders of the Deep State are the ones behind the semis tee coup attempt against our President and our Nation! He allowed and concurred for Clinton to start this witch hunt sessions was a traitor to the president and recused himself purposely to allow the muslim spy’s minions to appoint mueller and allow Clinton to start the false dossier!! All need to be tried in military courts and capital punishment initiated for the final cleansing of our nation!

    There will be no apologies, because they knew the accusations were false and did not care! They were using the false accusations to try to win the election by making Trump look like a traitor.
    Then when Trump won the election, they tried to use the false accusations and the investigations to get rid of him expecting Muller to find something on his fishing expedition, to use for grounds for impeachment.
    Now it is proven that Trump is innocent, and they are still claiming he is guilty and they are going to keep investigating him.
    The Democrats are so crooked that, even knowing Trump did not do anything wrong, they will keep spreading lies and accusations hoping to win in 2020, but the American people are not that stupid and it will cost the Democrats many seats in congress. Hopefully, even costing them the house!
    But Apologies? No we will not be seeing any of them apologize.

    Mr. Governor Mike, may I suggest following the $money$ for the determination. When you do a particular company named Glencore will stand out like a beacon. This is the Marc Rich endeavor. Same company that has a long established history with Iran, North Korea, Qatar & South Africa during the apartheid years.
    You will notice the Clinton fortunes among others are wrapped around Glencore along with a few other surprising individuals which may explain a few fascinating developments in the past & a suggestion is Clinton Foundation donors into the Canada enterprise.

    Dear Gov. Huckabee, Now you well know there will be NO apology. For a number of reasons: 1- President Donald J. Trump is a Republican and Republicans no longer get apologies from opposing parties. 2- It is now a 2 tier Justice System, different laws/rules apply to Democrats vs. Republicans. 3-Apologizing is an admission of being wrong or guilty? None of which can collide in the same sentence with a Democrat.

    We were sold down the river exactly as you describe but it was during the Clinton years.

    Of course DemoRATS don't care about that. I remember a caller telling Rush that "We know he is a skunk, but that's OK because we are winning.
    What a patriot! But a perfect example of a "No principle,"
    "Win at any cost," "Destroy anyone in our way" party.

    No more.
    Make a large Group example then.
    Force Schiff to resign, etc.
    Name names on this fiasco.
    Get Clapper & Brennan.

The Democrats can keep this going as long as they keep calling for “the full report!!” That is a sham; they know that grand jury testimony and material that violates the rights of the innocent cannot be released.

And as long as they maintain their charade, acting as if the report hasn’t even been released, that 44 percent will double down as well. Folks, believing doesn’t make it true. It must take a lot of hate to maintain that fiction. After all, even the most partisan among us should celebrate that we don’t have a President who is beholden to the Kremlin.

As for members of the media, who likewise aren’t rushing to microphones to apologize to the President or the public for getting it wrong, John Steele Gordon, author of AN EMPIRE OF WEALTH, has some choice words for them. He gets it exactly right.

    Mike, super summary of the most destructive political scandal in American history! Why "destructive?" A no-brainer, because this TRUE collusion is now exposed to the entire world, and our enemies are salivating over it. Unfortunately, many of those "enemies" are thriving within our own borders - and in our own government! My lifetime will have been realized when I see this coterie of treasonous "public servants' have to unload their own pallet of orange jumpsuits, and don them. How far should a true and ethical probe go? Right to the top, because it defies logic and common sense that all of these subterranean activities could have been planned and executed without the knowledge of Barack Obama.

    The Dems continue to say there is no border crisis/emergency which we all know is another lie. For those of us in border states another issue has come into play. Both Texas & AZ have huge border issues & AZ has another huge issue... the Dems are already hard @ Martha McSally w/lots of $ flowing in from George Soros or whomever. So, the RNC needs to be front & center NOW, not just later & someone needs to put a cork in Trump re: McCain as there are still many older, loyal GOP'ers in AZ who may not agree w/Trumps rhetoric so, let's not cause unnecessary voting issues. Also, AZ like TX is still getting many CA's moving in who may still vote as if in CA. McSally needs support NOW! AZ has gone from Red to Purple & could easily, it seems, go Blue. We've lived here 37 years & based on my memory it's been RED... let's not change that now! Thank you. Always appreciate your commentary, we also watch your program on TBN weekly.

    They are so tied up in their lie that they can't let it go even if it ends up destroying their party or the country. All they want is power which is the LAST thing they deserve!

    Sir, ever since the Kremlin assassinated Paul I before his son Alexander, the "intelligence" goons are abounding. Rabbi NachmaN saved our collective posteriors by writing a holy note on the Jewish calendar date 5566 28 7 which allowed NelsoN to defeat both the French and Spanish fleets on NapoleoN in one single day. Almost as if Samson got revenge for his second eye (the private eye?). These two armies (French/Spanish) were pro-slavery and anti-Gd (Haitians now served the British King (a secret fan of Napoleon) as free men). President Trump will have the power to fight the scourge of mankind (the "intelligence" community) if he successfully brings the second son of Rachel (R. Nachman). There will be no greater accomplishment in history than fulfilling the promise to Josef, "Pakod Pakodeti" this is the "circumbcision from above".
    As a serious man of Gd you have the credentials to explain this to him. He has just received the real estate that puts the holy of holy in his jurisdiction. Moses carried the bones alone until age 120 exactly!

    You know, it seems to me I remember either Brennan or Clapper ( or maybe both ) testifying to Congress before they had the Mueller investigation that they could find no evidence of President Trump colluding with Russia. The Mueller says the same thing. Why don't these people throw down the shovel? They haven't dug a deep enough hole for themselves?

    It is even more scary than their comments, is the fact, that if a Democrat wins the next election, we will be back to the “swamp”——deeper than ever.

    I know that if I keep diligently searching I will someday find a way to donate to Mike's work. But, you could make things a lot easier if you placed a link to a donation form in a conspicuous place. Thanks.

    Don't hold your breath expecting any of these to apologize. It will not happen. They will be defending their illegal actions as they are marched off to prison. I do think that once a person leaves public service ie FBI directors, DOJ officers, CIA investigators and directors they should be stripped of their security clearance. I thought that already happened. I know when I left my position with the state of Texas, I turned in my keys and no longer had computer access to any information. You walk away and start over at a new job leaving the trappings of the old one behind. These guys and gals want to walk away and hang onto to their access to secret information securing their feelings of power and control. Time for that to end in this age of electronics and serious breaches of national security.

    The demonrats will never admit to any of this because they all knew everything was a lie! Mueller was a plant by the demonrats he delivered the Uranium 1 sample to the Russians for the traitor Clinton! Tom Fitton and Judicisl Watch and their relentless pursuit of truth led to allowing us to see the real criminals behind the scenes! This entire charade of deceit and lies was perpetrated by the muslim spy that usurped our presidency for 8 years, then appointing the traitor clinton as Secretary of State to try and finish our country off by handing us to the Chinese and Russians! The spy guaranteed her the presidency in 2016 that was the final pursuit of the destruction of our nation, but they didn’t see Our Holy Father decide to heal our land and install President Trump to restore justice and the rule of law equally for all Americans!! The muslim spy usurped our presidency as a foreign exchange student thus he was a foreign operative, constituting that he was a military spy because he was Commander In Chief! He and Soros as leaders of the Deep State are the ones behind the semis tee coup attempt against our President and our Nation! He allowed and concurred for Clinton to start this witch hunt sessions was a traitor to the president and recused himself purposely to allow the muslim spy’s minions to appoint mueller and allow Clinton to start the false dossier!! All need to be tried in military courts and capital punishment initiated for the final cleansing of our nation!

    There will be no apologies, because they knew the accusations were false and did not care! They were using the false accusations to try to win the election by making Trump look like a traitor.
    Then when Trump won the election, they tried to use the false accusations and the investigations to get rid of him expecting Muller to find something on his fishing expedition, to use for grounds for impeachment.
    Now it is proven that Trump is innocent, and they are still claiming he is guilty and they are going to keep investigating him.
    The Democrats are so crooked that, even knowing Trump did not do anything wrong, they will keep spreading lies and accusations hoping to win in 2020, but the American people are not that stupid and it will cost the Democrats many seats in congress. Hopefully, even costing them the house!
    But Apologies? No we will not be seeing any of them apologize.

    Mr. Governor Mike, may I suggest following the $money$ for the determination. When you do a particular company named Glencore will stand out like a beacon. This is the Marc Rich endeavor. Same company that has a long established history with Iran, North Korea, Qatar & South Africa during the apartheid years.
    You will notice the Clinton fortunes among others are wrapped around Glencore along with a few other surprising individuals which may explain a few fascinating developments in the past & a suggestion is Clinton Foundation donors into the Canada enterprise.

    Apologies be damned; where is the repayment of the $20mil to our treasury? Don't give me any of that immunity stuff as there is no immunity where gross negligence is involved from the start!!

  • Nathan Paris

    Dear Gov. Huckabee, Now you well know there will be NO apology. For a number of reasons: 1- President Donald J. Trump is a Republican and Republicans no longer get apologies from opposing parties. 2- It is now a 2 tier Justice System, different laws/rules apply to Democrats vs. Republicans. 3-Apologizing is an admission of being wrong or guilty? None of which can collide in the same sentence with a Democrat.

    Still waiting for the WAPO to take a full page ad out that apologizes to the American people. All the staff writers can sign it, along with all the CNN and MSNBC staff..............Still waiting.......

    I will feel better only when Hillary and Obama are put in jail for what they have done to America. I thank God every night that Donald Trump is our president, as I cannot imagine what would have happened to us if Hillary won the election. God was certainly with us two years ago!

    We were sold down the river exactly as you describe but it was during the Clinton years.
    I remember Rush talking about Johnny ?? Showing up at Clinton functions with suitcases full of money. After the election there were a number of things that mysteriously went China's way.
    Of course DemoRATS don't care about that. I remember a caller telling Rush that "We know he is a skunk, but that's OK because we are winning.
    What a patriot! But a perfect example of a "No principle,"
    "Win at any cost," "Destroy anyone in our way" party.
    That is how they think and how they act.
