Here’s some fascinating weekend reading for you: from the Daily Caller News Foundation, testimony that provides the first real link so far between a Presidential campaign and a foreign government. The foreign government is Ukraine, and the Presidential candidate is...Hillary Clinton.

According to former Fusion GPS contractor Nellie Ohr (married, of course, to Bruce Ohr of the Justice Department), who testified in a closed-door session before Congress last fall, Serhiy Leshchenko was providing source material to Fusion GPS.

Ohr’s testimony left many unanswered questions. Predictably, Fusion GPS did not reply to a list of questions about this Ukrainian source. But Ohr did make it clear that Leshchenko was providing the campaign information on Paul Manafort, including his “black ledger” that purported to show he had received millions in illicit payments from the then-President of Ukraine. Importantly, Leshchenko had sought to portray Donald Trump as a “pro-Russian candidate,” which fit in nicely with the narrative Fusion GPS was creating with the Steele dossier. The report of the ledger is what got Manafort fired from the Trump campaign, but according to the DCNF, the ledger itself has yet to be verified.

At a time when the Trump campaign remains accused of “colluding” with Russia, here’s some irony for you: A court in Kyiv, Ukraine, found in late 2018 that Leshchenko’s release of information about Manafort “led to interference in the electoral process of the United States in 2016 and harmed the interests of Ukraine as a state.” Leshchenko was working to defeat Trump and elect Hillary. It’s not known whether he pocketed any of Hillary’s campaign money to do this, but her law firm and Fusion GPS certainly did.

    I am a real tax paying American citizen from Fort Worth, Tx. I demand that we the people be told the complete and unvarnished truth about everything. I demand that the laws of the land be upheld to the letter. The Clintons are the absolute worst criminals in the history of this great nation. They have committed willful and premeditated acts of Treason, Sedition, and espionage against our Constitutional Republic. It is way past time that they and all of there associates pay for there most heinous crimes against us. Somebody, please help us to get real Justice once and for all.

    What has been apparent to anyone watching, listening the whole Russian "collusion' thing was a farce from the start and the Special Council was an attempt to 'Find a CRIME to prosecute'. Now the onion is slowly being pealed but the BIG Question is " SO WHAT?" no one will pay for the Crimes against the Constitution under our two tiered system of Justice. One of the benefits of being in ' the Elite Circle' is the most corrupt lawyers that money can buy will all be collecting MILLIONS to keep the Criminals, THE REAL CRIMINALS, out of Jail. Because loss of reputation in the SWamp is actually a Badge of Honor.

    Mr Huckaby - our question is this: There has been supposedly evidence on crime the Clintin’s, Obama’s, as well as the FBI but no one seems to have the authority to make an arrest and put them in jail. Has there been more laws to protect them placed on the books? Surely there is someone of integrity in Washington to stop this circus and get behind our President for the American people.

    So now will Mueller investigate her? IMHO he will ignore the evidence and keep trying to manufacture false evidence against Trump. Open an investigation into Mueller's witch hunt.

    I am so disgusted with the swamp in Washington and all the crimes that Hillary, Obama and the rest of their crew committed and yet they are still walking around free, instead of locked up in prison cells where they belong! I have no faith in our justice system anymore! Why aren’t they paying for their crimes? I hope Attorney General Barr will do something to finally bring them to justice! Jeff Sessions was useless! Something needs to be done....and soon. Our country is suffering for all the nonsense the Dems have been up to! We need to see these criminals be brought to justice, so we can once again have faith in our justice system!

    Does not surprise me at all!!! However, WHEN does our current government put these people in an 'answer to these charges' situation. It seems to NEVER happen!

    These hypocrites all belong behind bars. They should also have to pay back the $$'s spent by Americans to fund this witch hunt. It's time to fire Mueller so that President Trump can finally put this behind him. Hillary, etc. all belong behind bars. How can these folks sleep at night? They probably don't believe this but, "God is watching". Thank you again, Governor, for another informative commentary. God bless you and your family.

    The black ledger like every thing else in this debacle will not be verified because it is a hoax. The whole thing is based on the assumption that no one is going to verify anything and take everything at face value. Of course all the people who are NOT libs like you and have a book out didn't take anything at face value. All it takes is a few people like John Solomon and Sarah Carter to ask a whole ton of pointed questions and red flags go up every where. Did the libs think all these people including Comey would be testifying before congress?. Nope. The blatantness Of the lies and half truths is amazing. (just made up a word) And sadly at the same time is hardly surprising, knowing the utter dishonesty of the democratic-communist party. When people start doing real journalism the entire Russian thing unravels. Goad you are not the ONLY one exposing this scandal. Although the word now is treasonous act.

    I predict nothing will happen, sure there’s a new AG but he won’t do anything but go after law abiding firearm owners. SSDD in Washington.

    Ukraine is at war with Russia which is led by Putin - - - - - - -

    Ukraine used to be a member of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) which wasn't led by Putin - - - - - - -

    is the US media aware of this or does it think that Ukraine is part of Russia ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

    If there is proof that Hillary had a connection with Russia why has the Special committee not gone after her to prosecute her? What is the Muller investigation only focusing on Republicans & not the Democrats?
    The wall is needed now. Most of the violent crime is committed be Illeagals. I support the wall & most guard presence there.

    Not really a comment so much as a question: WHEN is ANYONE going to be held to account for this, or do Democrats and their minions get to slide? Any ordinary person would already be in jail but, Hillary & Co are just riding out the clock. Is it "not guilty by reason of political connectedness" or is it because "she knows where they live"? I can barely watch, read or listen to news anymore because EVERY SINGLE DAY more information about Clinton & Co corruption is revealed and EVERY SINGLE DAY they remain unindicted.

    Keep informing us on the diabolical actions of Hellery...people must know how corrupt she really is and has been. Keep trying to find a way to get the word out to all the people who have dug in and no matter what will defend Hellery...eventually they must open their eyes or they too will fall off the cliff...Thank you for what you do in exposing the REAL TRUTH.

    This is all old news we the People know Killary made millions off of her act of treason in selling our Uranium to a Russian entity. We also know she broke many American laws when Comey outlined every one she broke and then re-wrote the statute to say she had no "intent" which was nowhere in the statute. She is still free and no investigation is being done into her or Barry. We aren't stupid anymore and things like gun running to our enemies, disregarding Federal immigration laws and using the Federal agencies as a means to end the 1rst & Second Amendments are very evident to us if not to the politicians who are suppose to actually work for the people and not the other way around like it obviously is today. Oh and how about the ineptness Killary showed in the entire Bengazi incident by allowing an Embassador to stay in a Diplomatic Compound with inadequate protection and an un defensible compound. She killed 4 Americans and never batted an eye just to protect the re-Election of her moslem president and her own power trip. She is guilty of breaking so many laws over her career it would take an hour to write them all down so for now lets just say our Justice system is broken and if not fixed soon so will our country be.

    But Mike, nothing is ever done about it. Isnt there more than enough information that shows Hillary and the democrats were involved with Russia. You post article after article concerning this but nothing ever happens. Are they truly above the law?

  • Robert McFate

    02/16/2019 12:51 PM

    It is starting to make sense why foreign government do not want Trump to release those document. Shows they were very involved in US politic to defeat him and feed the bogus investigation that has been going on!

    So WHY don't you rinos DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT instead of flapping you gums to feed your huge ego!!!

    Can you explain WHY there have been exactly 0 arrests on the Democratic side and even further WHY is Manafort in solitary confinement for “white-collar crimes”? Americans are truly losing faith in any judicial processes because so many apparent criminals are walking free and gaining millions writing books-they have no shame on what they have done, NOT ONE OF THEM!

    when will Hillary be arraigned ?

    This whole mess, from the beginning of Pres Trump's election, was to blame all of the criminal activities of the Clinton's and the entire swamp, in anticipation of the her win, on President Trump. After placing blame, and having him investigated until the cows come home, they decided to fabricate and perjure themselves ~ one after the other, in living color without remorse or penalty. They are a bunch of sick, immoral, power hungry people.

    I hope new Attorney General Barr will start to drain the swamp; all Jeff Sessions did was paddle around in it. There need to be investigations and indictments of Comey, Brennan, McCabe, Rosenstein and Hillary Clinton. They all need to be serving time behind bars!
