If you haven’t checked the news since early yesterday evening, then that explosion you heard in the distance last night was the “Trump Russian collusion” narrative blowing up in the faces of a lot of Democrats and media people. Hillary Clinton (who has been on her “Making You Glad You Voted For Trump” world tour for the past couple of weeks) had barely managed to brush off the growing collusion/cover-up scandal over the Russian purchase of one-fifth of our uranium supply as a lot of discredited baloney when the Spam hit the fan.

That well-known right-wing media mouthpiece, the Washington Post, reported that the notorious “Russian dossier” on Donald Trump – the one compiled by a shady oppo research firm and whose genuine USDA Grade A baloney reportedly was the basis for the Obama Administration wiretapping the Trump campaign and for Robert Mueller’s investigation – was actually paid for by the DNC and a lawyer from Hillary’s own campaign. Last week, the representatives of that firm, Fusion GPS, took the Fifth to keep from telling Congress who had paid them to compile it.

Commentary continues below advertisement

Reactions to the bombshell news ranged ranged from dead silence to denials of any direct knowledge to claims that oppo research is just standard operating procedure in DC. But trying to bring down a presidency by howling for an investigation based on questionable oppo research you secretly paid for yourself is just about as unethical as, say, heading an investigation into a scandal in which you had prior involvement you never revealed or for which your protégé is your chief witness. Or accusing your opponent of colluding with Russia while you were signing off on a business deal with Russia that endangered the world while Russian sources poured over $100 million into your family’s foundation. Or…well, if I keep listing breathtakingly unethical things we’ve seen out of Washington over the past few years, we’ll be here all day.

Better we should spend today watching the latest news to see what more revelations await. It promises to be an interesting day, as prominent figures scurry to cover their rumps and media hounds who have been baying up the Trump collusion tree for the past year try to explain how they completely missed the scent of the sewer that was right under their own feet.

    How can they smell the suer if they have the same smell as the suer?

    Gov Huckabee
    Patience brings rewards. For over a year, Americans have been assaulted with this fake news, now we are freed. It is amazing that the LEFT thinks that this story is believable. The Media and DemoRAT operatives tried real hard to get this believed but Hillary's actions during the campaign -- rigging the primary, voter registration irregularities and obtaining the Presidential Debate questions BEFORE the DEBATE, made this story questionable. Oh, and then there are her 25 Major Scandals over the past 30+ years that America has been dragged through. Hillary has cleverly never faced prosecution for her many illegal acts and has wasted millions if not billions of taxpayer money on investigations etc. I sure hope that this time, she is sent to jail or to the gallows.

    President Trump is doing an outstanding job, and your terrific daughter Sarah is helping to clear the mist off the swamp. You are also serving the nation with your commentaries and TV show. Praying that the swamp is cleared within a few years.

    Ain't NOTHING gonna come of it, Mr. Huckabee. It's smoke and mirrors, more distraction from what is really going on; i.e. forcing us into one worldism. It's gonna happen.

    I think Mueller should have to reimburse the Amount and taxpayers every penny that his budget has spent on this witch hunt against President Trump.
    Hillary Clinton and anyone else that profited from ALL of their illegal activities, crimes, pay for play, etc., should have to forfeit their gains, monetary or otherwise to our national debt. They should not be allowed to continue living off blood money, bribes, payoffs, etc. Their money should be confiscated NOW. They sold something that belonged to America, not something that they had ownership to.
    Then they ALL need to go to jail!!

    The collusion was real between Hillary & the Dems. Anything they accuse our President of doing the libs are guilty of doing. I hope they will be held accountable for their actions. We rejected their globalist agenda to ruin our country and they continue to attempt to ruin our Country with lies and media bias.

    I am going to speculate on the soon to be talking point in Clinton's and Obama's defense that will be parroted 24/7 by the MSM. The Uranium One deal is going to be spun as a means to reduce the global proliferation of nuclear weapons. Putin and Russia are in full compliance with all nuclear proliferation Treaties and thus are the safest place for the worlds supply of nuclear material since they can be trusted to not develop more nuclear weapons ( I smell a nobel peace prize for Hillary ). Yes since President Trump has stated he will upgrade Americas nuclear arsenal this deal was the best means to assure global peace and eliminate the threat of nuclear war. MARK MY WORDS

    Until we completely drain the swamp, this will continue to happen! Keep up the good work keeping us informed.

    So, people from Fusion get to take the fifth--and are there any consequences for that? Hopefully more significant consequences than what obama officials have faced. Just as a matter of curiosity, I wonder if the clinton campaign lawyer is one of the elite lawyers chosen by mueller for his special investigation? I have wondered for some time why the witch hunt for Trump goes on. But, really, something is getting done. Every week or so, it seems that whatever fictitious lead about Trump they go after, the result is another revelation of democrats doing what they try to prove anyone remotely connected with Trump is doing. Ooops, that lead didn't get the results they were looking for, let's find something else!!! Over and over.

    When will the Mueller investigation be dropped? It has to be... If not, then it has to be canceled by whoever has the power to do it. It is now a farce, but Pelosi and Schumer will go right on with it, if allowed to do it.

    Folks are in a hurry but let's get this done correctly. This is a country of laws. I want political criminals, a.k.a. swamp monsters, put in jail. I want every one of my family and friends to see the ugly side of the deep state. I want exposure of illegal voting, payoffs, racketeering, cronyism, etc. Mueller and his bunch will be easy to find. They are in a group.

    All parties need to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law so this type of thing does not continue to perpetuate. Also, the DNC and the Clintons should be made to pay the Americans taxpayers back for this investigation into Trump and Russian collusion, since it is based on the dossier. They can start by seizing the bank accounts of the Clinton Foundation.

  • Denise Johnston

    It seems to me that not only are things unethical but also illegal. When are we going to see these people held accountable? And why are they allowed to continue (ie Mueller’s investigations) when there is obvious conflict of interest? To say that it is up to Mueller to recuse himself is like saying it is up to a thief to decide his own guilt or innocence. It makes no sense. I want to see the political arena held to the same standards as the rest of the people. No one should be above the law. Investigations by Congress are all well and good, but to what end?

    Hi Gov Mike, I just wanted to shout out and let you know that I love what you and your daughter are doing for My President. As a veteran of 2 different eras almost 2 decades apart having served under the Carter/Reagan and GWB/ Obama years, a husband and father of 3 daughters I have always liked your honestly and what you say and how you say it and it shows in your daughter. You did a fine job sir, well done! Keep up the great work supporting our President Trump. I sustained some injuries in Iraq in 08 but just because I am no longer in The military doesn't mean I am not looking out for him as well. We need to make sure he and VP Pence and their families are all protected ands that they get 2 terms to try and fix all the wrongs of Obamination. If you're ever in Tampa, FL look us up. 719-499-0018. We moved here via Colorado 3 years ago. God Bless.

    Facts are stubborn, Inconvenient Truths. The liberal Democrats have no desire to see/hear/febate the truth. Truth has no effect on them. Only their truth is truth. How do you discuss the issues without using facts - TRUE FACTS. They don't want to hear the truth. Difficult position to be in.

    You are so right Governor! What I want to know is will they ever get these criminals, Obama, Clinton and crowd to testify, and will they ever be indicted? We cannot let this go!!!

    Will Hillary and any of her cronies ever be held accountable or will they weasel out of it and have someone else take the fall for their corruption?

  • Katherine Hanson

    10/26/2017 06:48 AM

    Mike it greatly saddens me that we have such corruption with our politicians and the mainstream media. They should be our watch dogs and not the mouth piece of one party or the other. They have just turned into any other talk show.
    I do hope that those who have been involved in the corruption over the last eight years are charged and held accountable .

    Yes but will they ever do anything to them?? I'm tired of watching them get away with everything!

  • Kirby Winter

    10/26/2017 06:36 AM

    Spot on! I just pray this time that the Clintons (both of them) actually are held accountable for their crimes against the American people. The treatment of "high class" people that always seem to get away with a slap on the wrist needs to end. That goes for Obama, Comey, Lynch and the rest of "The Swamp"!!!
    Will be interesting to see what GOO "Swamp Rats" are involved too!!

    Hillary Clinton’s crimes are finally coming out. She’s dirtier than we thought. A shameless crook. No wonder they spent millions for that fake dossier. She and Obama had so much to hide so they had to make sure Hillary wins the election. Thank God she lost. What’s in it for Obama though? Money? He was already the president, it couldn’t be for power. Democrats are corrupt and morally bankrupt.

  • Julie Contreras

    I truly believe that the American people were so desperately anxious to prevent Hillary Clinton from becoming president that many who always turned to God and many who seldom turned to God, fell to their knees before the Almighty and asked Him to keep her out of the White House. And I believe those people are STILL praying for our President and his Administration. Those prayers bring results people. I believe the prayers said during the campaign are having a residual effect and those being said now are having tremendous influence over the events taking place in our country and the world today. As a Catholic I know the Bishops of this country consecrated the United States to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I don't believe any country consecrated to God's most Beloved Mother will ever come to ruin. That Little Lady can wrap God around her little finger and can obtain from Him anything she wants. I thank God for His Mother's influence. I know many Christians don't accept that belief but the proof is in the pudding.

    When will that evil beast and her cohorts see justice? The American people are suffering, as we watch our President being attacked from every conceivable direction and usually over a bunch of twisted lies posing as facts. President Trump gets investigated for not correctly folding his socks, but the "deep state" just keeps protecting the real criminals.
    It seems to me that Obama's 8 years were spent planting his minions deeply into our government and in positions that allow his twisted vision for this country to persist. The DOJ, State Dept., and DHS need to be gutted. It's like our entire country is infested with roaches. They need to be (figuratively) exterminated. I don't understand why that's not happening!
    My husband and I very much enjoy your insight into our current events. You have a wonderful way of getting to the upshot of the matter, and it's comforting to hear an honest assessment of things.
    Sarah's a rock star. You must be so proud of her!

  • Judy Kelchner

    Will these people ever be brought to justice? Seems like everything points to their wrong doing but nothing seems to be happening to hold these people accountable.

    Please know how much your voice is appreciated. During these highly unethical days, within the media and political arenas, it's nearly impossible to know what's up and what's down. You, your amazing daughter who I idolize for her strength and intelligence, Newt Gingrich and even Rush Limbaugh give Conservatives hope that the truth will prevail and good will ultimately triumph. God Bless.

    I’m worried that the investigators are no match for corruption on this scale.
    By the way, we are from Chicago. The Dems are good and organized at covering up corruption.

    The size of this network of players is astonishing, and to consider so many are complicit with it all is staggering...what a mess! polticians; media; hollywood, all involved and where the Clinton cartel drives and with the Obama Admin turning our Institutes of Government like the FBI, DOJ, NSA, IRS into a political weapon to secure "the Plan". Lie, Cheat, Kill...whatever it takes. Be careful with this wicked army.
    The current DOJ with Jeff Sessions at the helm must rise to the great cries of fowl in regards to justice and pursue all paths till justice is satisfied. If he can't do it, then he needs to step down and allow someone in who can. This is the log blocking the water.

    God Bless America!

    Hillary, Obama, and their evil minions must be brought to justice and incarcerated. Mueller and Sessions had better bring this to fruition ASAP. THIS IS TREASON.

  • John R Willis

    10/26/2017 01:28 AM

    Thank you Sir. You kept telling us all along. It hurts to think our own Government would do this. That Hillary will still go unpunished. Normal citizens try to plead the 5th, yet they somehow end up in jail anyway. We need JUSTICE !

    Mr. Huckabee, I have a question for you. I would like to know if there is any truth in some posts talking about the Niger attack being covered up by the Trump administration? Someone called Mike Burgess has posted that LaDavid Johnson was left behind from the rescue. Also Maxine Waters suggested that this Niger incident would be President Trump' 's Benghazzi. I am a supporter of President Trump and am concerned.

    The truth that is coming out is slow because corruption is widespread. People who are involved one way or the other have to protect their skin; creating fake news, obstructions, denials and efforts to impeach our President.

  • Laura Kim Compton

    10/26/2017 01:10 AM

    That's is God using what the enemy meant to harm gets turned around and used for Good. The Swamp thinks everyone is as corrupt as themselves, that's why they can't believe they lost!..but Trump is God's choice!

  • Nicole Converse!

    10/26/2017 01:03 AM

    Man I hope this time they get charged for their crimes. This Hollywood/liberal mentality that they can do what they want and say what they want just because has got to stop! Arrests need to be made to them and anyone talking about harming the president. Then maybe they will see they aren’t untouchable.

    I wish I could say I was surprised but I can’t. It’s really hard to fathom the amount of wasted taxpayer money spent on a phony, “trumped”up collusion investigation. Why HAS it taken so long for someone to connect the dots and see who paid for this whole thing? Everything has pointed to Clinton and the Democrats before the election ever took place yet Mueller continues to waste our money. By now he should be able to see the writing on the wall and realize he won’t find any collusion evidence by Trump because it doesn’t exist. Unfortunately, he will continue this path to appease the screaming liberals who will stop at nothing to make up something to invalidate Trump before the American people. Thankfully there are people Iike you who continue to fight to expose the truth to the American people. Now, if you could only get those liberals to listen too we’d be eternally grateful

    This is news to for those who are blinded by their hatred for the President. The rest of us figured this out months ago. Just like always with Hillary, when her mouth is moving you can bank on the opposite of what she claims being the truth. She had rather climb a tree to tell a firbeedink than stand flat footed on the ground and tell the truth.
