Imagine what the Mueller special counsel investigation might be like now if Peter Strzok and Lisa Page had refrained from texting each other on their official FBI phones.

Strzok and Page would still, of course, have the same hatred for Trump –- we just wouldn’t be aware of it.  It would be a SECRET.  It would be something they shared privately during five-hour lunches, and we wouldn’t be talking about it now.  Presumably, Strzok would still be working with the special counsel team to bring down the President, right alongside the other fervently pro-Hillary attorneys and pit-bull investigators appointed by the “non-partisan” prosecutor Robert Mueller.

 YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE:  Yes, Lisa Page had FBI counsel, but actually answered questions!

Although her boss, then-deputy FBI Director Andrew “Andy’s office” McCabe, might still be gone --- he was sent packing and faces legal jeopardy after lying to investigators about media leaks --- Page would either be on Mueller’s team along with Strzok or would have chosen to stay at the FBI in a high-level position.  Both she and Strzok would still maintain their top-secret security clearances and could pretty much find out anything about anyone, as we’ve seen how good they are at getting FISA warrants.  They’d still be working together behind the scenes to ensnare Trump associates and get them to implicate the President in a “collusion” that never was.  We would never have known about any “insurance policy.”

On this subject, John Solomon outdoes himself in his latest column, pointing to one Strzok-Page text that leaps out in a particularly chilling way.  Sent by Strzok to Page just two days after Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel, it’s the one that says “there’s no big there there.” Until Page testified before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees last Friday and Monday, congressional investigators couldn’t say for sure that he was talking about the Trump/Russia case, but according to several eyewitnesses at her closed-door session, she “confirmed in the most pained and contorted way that the message in fact referred to the quality of the Russia case.”


Let’s take a moment for her confirmation to sink in.

This just tops everything.  If you have steam coming out of your ears right now, you should see mine!  Good grief, look at what our country has been put through over this fake investigation into Trump “colluding” with Russia to win the election.  After all this time --- all this finger-pointing, all this distraction from the country’s real problems that Trump is actually trying to FIX --- we still don’t have any evidence that Trump was working with the Russians in any way.  And to top it off, now we learn that FROM THE OUTSET, the FBI’s lead investigator in the Trump/Russia probe was saying “there’s no big there there.”


If we didn’t have Strzok’s text, we would never have known this.  But the investigators would still be trying to come up with whatever they could on the President, going so far as putting his former campaign people in solitary confinement if necessary to get him to testify.  Testify to what, exactly?

Solomon points out that by the time of Mueller’s appointment, the FBI’s best counterintelligence agents had been digging for some time.  They had used an unverified “dossier” paid for by the Hillary campaign in a FISA application to get a warrant to spy.  They really didn’t have anything, and Strzok admitted as much.  Yet Rod Rosenstein signed the authorization for a special counsel and appointed Mueller to the job.

Commentary continues below advertisement

To put the Strzok text in context, he and Page were debating whether to continue their rise at the FBI or to join the special counsel team –- “an investigation leading to impeachment?” Strzok mused.  Page, who seems from these texts and her testimony to be the more grounded of the two, said, “We should stop having this conversation here,” and later referred to “the different realistic outcomes of this case.”


If I understand correctly, Strzok’s and Page’s personal phones have not been turned over.  I wonder if that’s where they went for conversations that more fully indulged their impeachment fantasies, or if those were saved for the five-hour lunches.

    Mr. Huckabee I love the way you totally report what's truly important to those of us who love our dear country. The USA may not be perfect but it is and will hopefully always be a country we can be proud of to call home. Your delivery of the news both in print and on tv always has a slice of "Got Cha" in it. For me that is wonderful.. I'm so tired of seeing so many Republican leaders rolling over and playing dead and you always come in to cast pure hope to us all.
    Thank you so much for being a beacon and voice for all us red blooded Americans who want to live according to the constitution.

    I don't know how much more I can get angry about this but my blood pressure is rising. This whole thing is just wrong and if I had one wish it would be that Muhlar and his minnons would be exposed for all of these lies against our president. How shameful all this crap is, I have never seen so much corruption in my life.

    I just confirmed that the wife of Rod Rosenstein is an attorney whose actions certainly need to be looked into! The names of those she has represented and how information about her cases have been hidden, etc.
    I am just amazed at the high levels of corruption - and it seems that ONLY CONSERVATIVES seem to care!! What has happened to my country??? THANK GOD, I know that HE is SOVEREIGN - and nothing escapes His attention! I PRAY that HE will continue to expose all the corruption, greed, illegal actions, and lies!!!

    It's downright scary what out government can do, even to us everyday people! They have the power to take over a complete government as they are trying to do with the Trump Russian collusion case, what stops them from making all of us into government robots after they destroy our county?

    Mike, we have government in crisis as you have pointed out. Is there any wonder that the left is in a panic as the Trump team closes in. 9/11 was a national emergency. President Trump is currently flanked by two US Marine Generals. What do you think the left will do if we have another "national emergency" and Marine Helicopters come in and scoop up the DOJ and FBI archives unredacted with a Constitutional Judiciary in place? President Trump is a long term planner who believes in the rule of law. These guys have broken the law in every way including Sunday! I anticipate a massive house cleaning that will be unrivaled in history short of what was ochestrated by God Himself. Comments, please.

    The mood in the country is as tho we are waiting for the calamity to come at any moment,when it has already happened. Everywhere you look ,there seems to be some group wanting to destroy old history and conseal any new evidence that could expose this vile sort of attack on the american people. To know that you have been fighting verbally and spiritually with portions of your own government for so long is a path that most decent people do not even want to think about. When you read the oath taken by all who serve,that line to preserve and protect from all enemies foreign and domestic......cause me to wonder just how bad is this going to get ?

    Please Gov Huckabee for the good of our nation please call for the immediate resignation or if not firing of AG Sessions. He has not done the job and recusal be dammed these FBI people need prosecuted to the full extent. Mueller has wasted millions of our $$$. Trump will not act as he is scared of Hillary and the deep state. They put JFK in Arlington in 1963 and they are just as active today and Trump knows it. Please lead the conservative call for only you and Hannity are not bought and paid for. Our President looks so bad, they have broken him with the constant barrage of liberal hate a la Whoopie Goldberg and Maxine Waters. God demands a Christian accounting of this lawlessness. I feel you are the one to lead His revolt against the tyranny of the left. For the sake of Sarah and all you hold dear. God and Country forever. Prayerfully Dan Archer

    It's so evil and beyond anything a normal person could ever conceive. The depth of all of this hatred & disrespect for human rights & lives. I'm even having trouble understanding so much chaos over the Trump/Putin summit. President Trump did everything he should do. First they all claim he will never be able to deal with foreign policy & diplomacy. As far as I'm concerned he handled it well. Why in the world would he want to call Putin out publicly at the press conference & ruin the opportunity to build a better relationship with Russia?? It's not like any of the heathens that are trying to destroy the President could have done better. We all know how many previous Presidents failed miserably. Trey Gowdy's opinion surprised me. I gave him more credit than that. I'd like to hear from you about this.

    strzok and page *might* have gone to their personal phones, but i'll bet they went to Yet Another channel instead, so that they could point to their personal phones and the government phones and say, "golly, that's all there is; we're unhappy that trump was elected, but we didn't do anything." i'm betting that the "insurance policy" is documented elsewhere, unless the tracks have already been erased. hammers, anybody?

    "After all this time --- all this finger-pointing, all this distraction from the country’s real problems that Trump is actually trying to FIX --- we still don’t have any evidence that Trump was working with the Russians in any way." And, to make matters worse, this "impartial" special counsel is collecting how many millions of tax payers dollars to "investigate" a fairy tale? And, just ignoring any liberal duplicity in anything. When are the real culprits including obama, hilary (and bill,) comey, brennan and all those others actually going to have their feet be held to the fire? When is whomever needs to--send the troops in to collect documents, hard drives, phones, etc etc etc of all those involved--and in offices, hotel rooms, all homes, homes of mistresses, etc etc etc before the culprits have a chance to pull a hilary and destroy most of it?

    I am sick and tired of all of this what will it take other than trumps head on a platter as has already been portrayed by Griffith to end this how is strzuk still employed how is rosenstein? Where is sessions? And will Mitch McConnell let kavaugh get borked? And Jim Jordan are they going to allow him to go the way of judge Roy Moore? Actually Jim Jordan is still alive most that come after the Clinton’s are no longer with us I don’t know how much more trump can endure I pray for him and his family but really at the end of the day is it to quote hrc what does it matter Maxine waters needs to go what about Lewis and sharp tin don’t they owe back taxes and let they still serve I am sick of all of the corruption and apparently no one has the ability to do anything about it

    What about the thought that the “insurance policy” is Strzok’s wife bc she works in a capacity, and is able, and in fact is keeping a lid on the FISA warrant issue?

    Also- and comment on whether JFKjr and Seth Rich could actually be alive?

    I follow you on Twitter, too. You are hilarious! I love your commentaries and writings! No wonder SHS is such a pro! She’s her father’s daughter!

    I will always believe that this began with the Clintons and their scheming dirty behaviour. After reading several books about them its very clear to me that their dirty hands are all over this mess. It's all a distraction from their illegal activity. They have corruption running deep in their veins. Only God knows about the murders they have had commuted to shut people up. I now worry about that FBI Agent, Lisa Paige. So much corruption from the halls of our beautiful America it literally makes me sick at heart. Satan at his best here. I know Trump is no saint, but I hope he can sincerely do something to clean up our country. Thanks and God bless you and our Great Nation.????

    All of the emails between Strozk and Page are unbelievable. Strozk should have been fired instead of being downgraded to Human Resources. Talk about treason--these two FBI people should be tried and sentenced. It sickens me to see what has happened to the FBI and the Justice Department. Jeff Sessions should be fired along with Rosenstein. Sessions has abdicated his responsibility and Rosenstein is as guilty as the rest of these crooks. If Wray doesn't want to get his department straightened out, then he should go, too. If Trump doesn't want to get these departments straightened out, I would be happy to do it for him. This country deserves honest people in the FBI and Justice Department. I believe that Obama had his hand in this as it sounds like something that this ex-president would have had his hands in to destroy Trump. Someone needs to tell Mueller either to produce his evidence or quit. I deplore it that my tax dollars are going toward this type of organized crime.

    When is someone going to investigate Robert Mueller, he is probably dirtier than any of them. Talk about Russia collusion, isn't he the one that took the uranium sample to Russia? What about Strzok growing up in Iran and Arabia. How in the hell did he get a top secret clearance. I've had one and they are not easy to get. Also, when whatever project you are working on is over, so is the clearance.

    Wow then why doesn' t this Trump/Russian investigation just end here and now? It is a ridiculous waste of our taxpayer dollars. I, for one, am tired of my taxpayer dollars going to frivolous investigations that were designed solely for the purpose of benefiting a particular political party. It will soon be time to have all political parties be disbanded and candidates run on the merit of what they can do for America instead of what they can do for their political party.

    Truth, without the “Special” investigation we wouldn’t know a lot of this, nor would we know about the Dem involvement in setting up this coverup for their corruption. I say let it be.

  • Jerry Waechter

    07/22/2018 04:08 PM

    Just a question--since the Democrats are shocked and appalled by their belief that Trump doesn't believe in the intelligence community, why haven't they called for an end to the Mueller Investigation since the statement clearly said "no Americans were involved"?

    Gov Huckabee: What if the Strzok / Page alleged affair, was exactly that, alleged and a cover for an internal communications back-channel, between the higher levels of the FBI (Deputy Director McCabe, Assistant Director Page, the Legal Advisor for the office of the Deputy Director and the #2 in the FBI Counter Intelligence Office). Since Page had continual communications access to both McCabe and Strzok, Page becomes the linch-pin between the Deputy Director (who we know was already compromised and in the bag for Clinton) and Strzok, the senior level egoistic and biased driving force behind two ongoing counterintelligence investigations. The affair (alleged or real) was the ideal office cover for back-channel communications between the two ongoing counterintelligence investigations and FBI top management, without having to use the official office channel procedure for normal internal FBI communications. Where Director Comey fits into all of this back-channel communications, is yet to be known. However, I have never seen any top level management organization yet, where the #1 and the #2 were not communicating on "all communications cylinders" between each other, especially a high level government agency like the FBI. What if?

    This was/is an attempted coup. The highest form of treason. Everyone involved from start to finish should be charged with trying to remove a duly-elected President of the United States and given stiff jail terms. These are domestic enemies who have put the country thru 2 yrs. of hell. Can you imagine what Pres. Trump could have accomplished if this hadn't been done to him? The FBI, the CIA and NSA should all be revamped with all new leadership. More congressional oversight on a weekly/monthly basis should be done so this never happens again. Communists like Brennan should never have been confirmed in the first place. What was Congress doing during his confirmation hearings, sleeping? I am appalled this whole mess was EVER allowed to happen.

    Hi there Mike! Our pastor spoke on Nehemiah 2:9-20 today. Nehemiah was able to complete in 52 days what others couldn’t do in 95 years to rebuild the wall. He talked about Kingdom Accomplishers and how they are willing to work under official sanctions. They understand there will be multiple layers of opposition and they understand the need to work with discretion. Gosh, I wish you would take 30 minutes to listen to it. I saw our government all over this teaching....God is still on His throne and we continue to pray for this country, your family, especially for strength for you and Sarah and the President. As chaotic as this all seems in this nation, unity can result. The devil is the father of lies and a deceiver and a defeated foe and so are all these screaming voices from foolish people. Take a few minutes for this Godly council. God Bless You, Anne

    Four comments. 1) This is the work of God, He exposed them and the whole disgusting despicable effort of the Obama admin to undermine the election and destroy country. 2) Justice MUST be served, this was nothing short of treason and the top leadership in the Obama admin (all the way up to BHO) were all complicit and are guilty. 3) The deep state is still engaged, left there by the likes of Brennan, Comey, Holder, Lynch, Kerry, Clinton, Obama and many others to undermine the country. 4) A day of reckoning is coming.

    i don't understand why Strozk hasn't been fired. He is still getting a salary. Mr. Wray hasn't gotten rid of him? What is wrong? I know Strozk is in Human Resources, but he shouldn't be there,period.

    Now that we have all this evidence against two members of the FBI , a supposedly neutral organization, and we also know that at least one of these individuals was involved in the Mueller investigation and the Clinton investigation, why can't this lack of spine Government of ours get warrants and search these crooked cowards homes, offices, and any other place the crawl into?

    Thee are holocust deniers, and climate change deinrs, and governor, I must confess, I remain, at best, highly skeptical about Mueller's "evidence" against the Russians alleged to have hacked the DNC. for starters, the DNC did not allow the FBI to examine their server after the data was lost. The FBI did examine some ser ves, including the one from John "Consiglieri of the Clinton Cartel" Podesta, and learned that the speed with which the data was downloaded could not have been achieved from a remote hacking, but was the result of either a CD or thumb-drive being attache, and the data downloaded directly to that media. In other words, it as not the Russians, but Awan the Pakistani "IT Tech", Seth Rich, or some other person with authorized access who downloade the information eventually leaked to Guccifer2.

    After the election, when I think Trump will have a majority allowing him to confirm anyone he wants, I think Jeff Sessions needs to go, and we'll have a new AG who will sweep the entire DOJ and FBI clean.

    Until then, I hope the dems keep their guns sighted on their feet, and their selector levers on full auto, a la Hillary.
