September 1, 2018

Friday night, I went on Sean Hannity’s show with guest host Jason Chaffetz to talk about malfeasance at the FBI regarding the Bruce Ohr testimony and the fraudulent FISA warrant applications --- all the things we’ve been talking about here.  I described the situation as “the three C’s”:  corruption, conspiracy and cover-up.”  We might also add the word “clouds,” because just when a big dose of sunshine might be the best disinfectant with which to attack the disease, the media are doing all they can to cloud the facts.  One of the most disgraceful and disheartening things of all is the utter lack of interest that most in the media have in addressing the problem.

Lindsay Graham has now come out and said what we’ve been observing for some time:  that if the situation were reversed –- if Republicans had pulled the same kind of underhanded and unconstitutional tricks to spy on Hillary’s campaign, investigate her when she’d done nothing wrong (hard to imagine her doing nothing wrong, but we’re talking hypothetically here), and keep her out of power –- the media would be screaming bloody murder about it.  Can you even imagine the collective rage that would clog the airwaves and editorial pages?  But since this was done to Donald Trump, we haven’t been able to trust the mainstream media to expose any of it.  They dismiss it as a "distraction."  If it weren’t for a relative handful of undeterred reporters and analysts such as Sara A. Carter, John Solomon, Gregg Jarrett, Catherine Herridge and watchdogs such as Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, we wouldn’t have ever found out what we sadly know to be true.

Commentary continues below advertisement

And that is this:  At the highest levels of the FBI and the Justice Department, there was an intentional effort to stage what we see now was no less than a coup against the elected President.  They were using our own taxpayer dollars to do it.  These were the people who were supposed to be upholding the law, not using it for their own shameful purposes, and we ought to see them arrested and frog-marched across federal property right into the slammer for what they have done.

It’s unbelievable that such a level of corruption exists among this many people at the top.

In their minds, the mere fact that the unconventional Donald Trump got elected –- when he wasn’t “supposed” to –- excuses them for anything they do.  Say anything, lie to a court, violate official policy, create fake evidence, drop legitimate investigations and create illegitimate ones, leak to the media, ruin people and consider them collateral damage, offer immunity and plea deals to the real lawbreakers, hide and redact documents, even (yes) “collude” with Russians.

Jason asked me what Trump needs to do now; I answered that he’s simply got to have an attorney general who, if he or she can’t depend on people in Washington to root out the corruption, will go out to the field offices and bring a team together that will fearlessly investigate.  Force DOJ and FBI personnel to turn over all documents, unredacted, to the congressional oversight committees.

This is not about politics –- not about whether or not somebody likes or doesn’t like President Trump.  This is about the preservation of our system of government that elects people and empowers them.  It’s also about whether or not we can trust law enforcement.  If we have this kind of corruption in our law enforcement agencies, then we have something that truly does take us to the end of our republic.  That’s how much this matters.

As I told Jason, when people have the power to take your liberty away –- which law enforcement does; they can put you in jail, ruin your life –- and those same people become corrupt, then your whole system utterly breaks down, and I think we’re on the verge of that right now.

I would tell Democrats who want to be honest brokers that they need to step up and do that.  Democrats used to care about equal justice under the law, treating the poor and politically unconnected in exactly the same way as the rich and powerful.  That is not happening now, and consequently we’re becoming a nation of cynics.  (Remember what I just wrote about cynicism after the revelations about Bruce Ohr, with a link to Kurt Schlichter’s very cynical rant?)  We can’t afford to have that kind of environment in a constitutional republic.  We have to have confidence that the Constitution actually means what it's supposed to mean.

Right now, Robert Mueller’s special counsel team continues undeterred, despite being exposed as the spawn of a top-level hoax.  I realize how blunt that sounds, but we have evidence now that it’s true beyond a reasonable doubt.  The FBI has tried to keep this from us for a long time, by ignoring subpoenas, slow-walking documents and redacting them heavily, but by now we get the picture.  In fact, members of Trump’s own legal team, including Rudy Giuliani, Jay Sekulow and Marty Raskin, are putting together a report of their own, a “counter-report” that will seek to delegitimize Mueller’s investigation.

Giuliani told The Daily Beast that the report will have two sections, one of which will allege conflicts of interest within federal law enforcement agencies.  That one currently runs 58 pages.  (My guess is that Rod Rosenstein, James Comey and Mueller himself figure prominently in that section.)  The second part, still of indeterminate length, will deal with allegations against the President:  the so-called “collusion” with Russians to sway the 2016 election, for which there is no evidence, and the “obstruction” stemming from incidents such as Trump’s firing of then-FBI Director Comey, which was actually well within his authority as President.  If the report goes over 100 pages, it will also require an executive summary.  According to Giuliani, most of the information to be included has already been made public, as opposed to secret grand jury information or new interview material.  It will no doubt be familiar to us, as we’ve been closely following the revelations day by day for a long time.

The team may include an additional section to deal with revelations surrounding former Trump attorney Michael Cohen.  I would imagine that one would address the guilty plea Cohen copped that curiously includes two counts of campaign finance violations that weren’t actually violations, as they involved Trump’s legal use of his own personal funds to handle a personal matter.

They started working on the report in July and should have it ready in two or three weeks, perhaps sooner.  Depending on what happens with the Mueller investigation, they may or may not use it.  But I’d say they have a solid argument that the whole thing was illegitimate from the get-go and that anything the special counsel is pursuing now is “fruit of the poisonous tree.”

    I believe it's going to take a period of time to root out all the politicians and hangers-on who have systematically destroyed a portion of our constitutional Republic! The good news is we have the man for the job thanks be to God!

    Jesus is the only real hope in this world and Father God is the sole source of real love. In this tawdry world my faith gives me hope; my belief in living eternally with Christ and the saints in Beulah Land is what carries me through the trials and tribulations of the refiner's fire.
    God turned Israel into a desert when it was so full of apostasy that He could not bear to look upon it. Is not the current corruption in the United States as well as globally just as bad as things were then. Nevertheless God's arm is not shortened nor is His ear heavy. He hears our groans now as then and He will act IN HIS TIME which is kind of an oxymoron because He lives outside of time. So I praise Him in the Morning and the Evening and I thank Him for saving me and giving me a sound mind and the Holy Spirit.

    It is hard to fathom, that Sessions and Trump don't even talk...on a secure phone or face-to-face, and resolve, that Trump is either guilty enough that Sessions wants to distance himself from Trump, or that he(Sessions) feels his office is above that of The President, and that he is staying mute, for the benefit of the People(and Congress) until Mueller exonerates or crucifies Trump!!
    One of the most salacious, crooked, and lackie AG's, was Eric Holder, who should have been fired by Obama, but, knowing he would be pardoned, he was given the choice to resign....undisgraced!! And here is Ohr running around using the DOJ office ( and Sessions) to go after Trump, unfettered, and unanswerable to either Mueller or Sessions! The CRIMINAL CORRUPTION SWAMP RUNS DEEP, and it is intent
    on cutting short a Presidency....that may in fact save this Country from calling out the law breakers! Any other country, the act of "sedition", is met with the swift justice of a firing squad!! A great deterrent.....once the first shot is fired!!!

    This wording sounds like the "anti-Trumpers": ["...putting together a report of their own, a “counter-report” that will seek to delegitimize Mueller’s investigation."] in your "How Dow We fight..." article. Perhaps it would be better to say "EXPOSE as illegitimate..." to show that we are trying to show the TRUTH, not cause confusion (the way MSM does).

    Do NOT post my comment. At a recent Trump rally, there was a sign "I am Q" Who is Qanon. Trump acknowledged them.

    Thank you Mike for your clear concise evaluation of the poisonous fruit that has infected the top level of doj and FBI employees! I am so glad to hear that President Trump and his team are putting together a counter to all of this crap that is being late on us by those two agencies and MSM! For the life of me I can't understand why there isn't gratitude for what president Trump and his team are doing for our country. I would like to say it makes me sick but even worse it makes me very angry that this can happen in our country by the people that can determine whether we can be prosecuted, indicted, described which can ruin somebody's life! The good news is President Donald J Trump doesn't need these people he doesn't have to be be holding to them and I'm surprised he hasn't given them the universal symbol of the number one! I can't believe the restraint he has shown and I'm so proud of him and his family and his cabinet in sticking to the game plan and helping our country at every turn! I hope this wines that way through the courts and the people involved including HRC and BHO get exactly what they deserve. I hope we don't have to wait until judgement day for this to be settled. It has galvanized groups and with the left talking about ruining people's lives if they happen to work for the administration I've never seen anything like it in my short 68 years of life on this planet! Thank you for your clear-headed non judgemental analysis of what's going on! It's really scary Mike and I'm glad you're here for us.

    Governor, I agree that what the media, democrats and republicans, law enforcement, academia, and business have all become suspect. Since the top leaders of the country have been dishonest so long, lying, cheating, taking down your opponent and ruining people's lives unfortunately IS our culture today. AND the American people like myself have taken it and allowed it to become as corrupt as it is. I am a real cynic of about everything I hear or read, except the Bible. I am not sure the culture is capable of recognizing and presenting absolute truth. Everything is relative and "my truth" is as good as yours and your truth is as good as mine.

    Our only salvation is if we obey God's formula for healing: "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
    2 Chronicles 7:14

    Gov Huckabee~ I certainly wish I could send this article to our local paper in order to try and open some blind eyes in our community.

    Insightful and true.
    Thank you very much & We Bless God for you and your commitment to bring truth to light.

    The only way the Progressive Libturds can make themselves look just a little respectable is to bury the truth of what they are really up to. They have one major problem, WE THE PEOPLE have wised up to just how much they are outright liers and have tuned them out and have when searching for the truth outside their propaganda bubble! That's why they are screaming so loud about Fox News because they ain't playing the propaganda game the Progressives are pushing so hard!

    Yes Sir, you have summed up the current situation nicely. It is time that this moves forward in the public eye, so we have to kill a mockingbird, which I believe is mostly writhing in agony on the concrete now. Thank you for you and your families service in these tough times.

    I would hope they let you edit their report to make it easier to follow. And retell. Good job Sir.

    Is it possible that these conspirators, i.e. Mueller, Comey, et al, could have been bought, by say someone like George Soros? And that they are being threatened, or at least feel at risk if they don't carry out this assignment to destroy Trump and our country. Surely some accountability within the ranks of the FBI AND DOJ would otherwise have surfaced by now. This whole dog and pony show is unbelievable!!! Again i ask, what can we do about it?

    To fight corrupt system: Name names, meet in Public, Challenge in public, follow,
    Change rules, policies, Go Outside system, see ex employees about System, ID those stonewalling system.
    Or nothing gets done.
    Purge the DC Estd elite ( those attended McCain funearl as sample) Or nothing changes.
    Link to Country Clubs, Bars, Pvt clubs, etc for DC NY CA crowd.
