Suppose you were a member of, say, the House Intelligence Committee, trying to exercise your due diligence and conduct oversight as mandated by the Constitution, and you’d been kept waiting an ungodly length of time for thousands documents from the DOJ and FBI. How would you feel when you finally got some –- after many months or even over a year –- and you still couldn’t get the full story or even, in some cases, make heads or tails of them because large portions had been blacked out, ostensibly for reasons of national security. The official term for this: “redacted.” We’ve taken for granted these redactions were necessary.

Sometimes entire pages are blacked out. For all practical purposes, a blacked-out page may as well be non-compliance, especially considering that lately, when communications were finally un-redacted, the parts formerly withheld turned out to have nothing to do with national security –- only with covering the FBI’s collective butt, particularly on its disgraceful treatment of former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

Who actually performs these redactions? Gosh, I don’t know, but it’s easy to imagine some Winston Smith character sitting in a locked-down, dreary, fluorescent-lit basement room within the Ministry Of Truth –- I mean, Department of Justice –- with a green eyeshade and a big black Magic Marker, which he uses so much that he risks being overcome by the fumes in his cubicle. Instead of dropping papers down the memory hole, he runs his eyes over them and blacks out whatever he anticipates might be damaging or even incriminating to the DOJ or to colleagues at the FBI and State. “Winston” has done this for years and assumed until November of 2016 that once Hillary was safely in office, he’d be able to continue unchallenged.

Mark my word: while President Trump is being accused of “obstructing justice,” the real obstruction has been occurring among those trying to get rid of him. Many assume that this is an attempt to impeach Trump, convict him and remove him from office. But Mark Levin has a different theory: that since it would be impossible to get a two-thirds vote in the Senate to convict, Mueller’s goal is to get Trump indicted on SOMETHING, forced into the legal fight of his life and induced to resign. No sitting President has ever been indicted, forced before a federal grand jury or removed from office through impeachment and conviction. But in this case, removal wouldn’t be accomplished by that process, but by one determined prosecutor, Captain Ahab (I mean Mueller). According to Levin –- and there’s no better constitutional scholar –- the framers never in their wildest dreams imagined that this subversion of democracy would be happening today.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions could bring this travesty to a halt. But where is he? He recused himself on the Russia investigation, but surely there’s ample cause to stop this that has nothing to do with Russia. Try all the stunning conflict of interest that permeates the whole steaming mess.

At least we can see that despite the redactions and delays, evidence of the plan is emerging and being pieced together by patriots (call ‘em Huck’s Heroes) who will not be deterred. For example, although FISA requests are slow-walked like a camel through quicksand, Judicial Watch has obtained new evidence that on advice from the FBI, former FBI Director James Comey met with special counsel Robert Mueller and his team before testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee about leaking his notes on meetings with Trump to his professor “friend” (actually someone he had on the FBI payroll, though he didn’t disclose that) with the goal of getting them to the New York Times and having a special counsel appointed. It’s astounding that he would have chosen what seems to be a very inappropriate way to prepare for that testimony. What was going to come out in his testimony before the Senate that he had to coordinate with Mueller first?

According to Kim Strassel in the Wall Street Journal, Rep. Devin Nunes has finally been allowed by the Justice Department to see classified information about someone described as a “sensitive, longtime intelligence source for the CIA and FBI.” The DOJ and FBI had refused to provide congressional investigators with information on this person, “a U.S. citizen who has aided the special counsel investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 campaign.” The argument, once again, was that revealing this information to Nunes would somehow threaten national security, even risk loss of life. Sure, right –- just like those other redactions. What seems increasingly apparent to Strassel is that this person, amazingly, was an informant (spy) for the FBI inside the Trump campaign.

What, intercepting their phone calls wasn’t enough? Strassel even thinks she knows who the spy was but needs confirmation before she can say. She suggests that Trump use his authority as President to declassify as much as possible himself. How ironic if his attempt to reveal all that the FBI and DOJ have been trying to hide were to be labeled “obstruction.”

    Might sound crazy but, what if the FBI & Jeff Sessions DOJ we’re actually protecting Trump from some obscure detail that, if revealed, could throw the presidency into chaos? What better way to keep your political opponents at bay than to keep them believing Special Council and the deep state was working on there behalf!

    I think it is past time that Nunes, Gowdy and Grassley came into first the DOJ then the FBI with TR's big stick and start swinging and don't stop until they get what they want. We NEED some bruised shins, knees and maybe a few heads to get these people moving. "What do they have to hide?" A lot they are ashamed of. They are caught in the act and they KNOW it. Corruption is so rampant I am about ready to advocate a full scale rebellion by those who are career and are not part of this sinister plot. Rosenstein, is SO corrupt, he needs to proceed directly to federal prison and await the same trial given Manifort, Flynn, and the others whose lives have been destroyed.

    You know, when I was a boy I can remember people saying to me and my peers that if we wanted to be President of the U.S. all we had to do was work hard enough and we could be President. Today, Washington, D.C. has become so corrupt that I believe that unless you are among those of the corrupt and willing to sell your soul to them you will be relentlessly attacked and discredited to the point of having your whole reputation destroyed. I don't like everything President Trump has done and I guess that could be said for any sitting President, but I sure can tell you I admire the man for putting up with a bunch of fools that, every time he opens his mouth attacks him, even if they said the same thing a couple of years ago. I believe they have no idea how disgraceful they actually are. They should be ashamed of themselves.

    I love you articles -- you are right on. I pray for President Trump everyday and I pray that truth and righteousness will prevail. I pray for him for wisdom, protection, and that he would truly know Jesus. One thing - I miss your articles being on facebook. And by the was - your daughter, Sarah, is amazing, just like her Dad.

    I hope the GOP retains control of the House because if they don’t these investigations will be scrapped by the Dems. Imagine if Gowdy had been able to get all the documents on Benghazi. I hate to see him go!
    The DOJ and FBI’s past actions need to be exposed. Look what they did to Flynn. Inexcusable! The government needs to reimburse him for all his expenses fighting this debacle.

    Governor Huckabee,
    Thank you for your clarity and boldness to just simply reveal the truth. Our son was one of the pastors at First Nazarene in Little Rock and had the privilege of meeting you. All of your work is a joy to people like me here in Lawrence, Kansas.

    End the slow walk & bureaucractic slow down alone, Purge the damn files.
    Subopena AG, Dep AG & etc ALL involved.
    No exceptions.
    Even lowly clerks if any involved in DOJ & FBI.
    Move this forward

    For 8 years I watched Elija Cummings lead a group of Democrats on the Oversight and Benghazi investigations to obscure, delay, and otherwise prevent the American citizen from ever finding out the truth about IRS Targeting, Fast and Furious, etc. They were obviously aided and abetted by Deep State operatives in the DOJ, FBI, and State Departments. Unfortunately, they were successful.
    Fast forward to the Russian Collusion Investigation by the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. In the House we have Adam (Very Shifty) Schiff and his sidekick Eric (The Weasel Gun Grabber) Swalwell doing everything they can to keep us from the truth. They went to the ends of the earth to keep anyone from finding out the Hillary and the DNC paid for the Dossier. They continue to act like trial attorneys inventing and connecting imaginary dots along with rumor, innuendo, anonymous sources to maintain the suspicion that Trump colluded!
    I would like to know who these guys work for. We pay them but someone else owns them. Who?

    The redactions make them suspect for more crimes committed. What are they hiding? Why are they not putting all the smelly fish on the table? Does not look good for them. Clean out the swamp. Let's clean out the lawlessness running rampant in our government officials. This includes the politicians in California and a few other states.
