Clinton crimes "20 times bigger than Watergate"

November 16, 2017

If you’re frustrated about the double standard that’s always been applied to the Clintons and to Democrats in general, join the club --- and listen with interest to a former assistant FBI director who gladly would be president of that club.

James Kallstrom, who retired from the FBI in 1998, appeared on FOX News’ “Varney & Company” to accuse members of the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party --- in particular, Hillary Clinton --- of crimes “20 times bigger than Watergate.”


Commentary continues below advertisement


And, yes, the double standard is still in force, thanks in large part to current Deputy FBI Director Rod Rosenstein, put in place at the Justice Department by Democrats and in charge of investigating “all things Russia” after Director Jeff Sessions’ recusal. It was Rosenstein who appointed the highly problematic Robert Mueller as special counsel.

I’d like to add that the Mueller scenario should warn Republicans who want a special counsel power to investigate Hillary: be careful what you wish for. You don’t know who will get the appointment and what his or her priorities will turn out to be. That’s especially true if Sessions has to pass the choice to Rosenstein. A special counsel would have the power to drag his feet on the investigation or wildly misdirect it, and to bury any findings for years.

PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT BELOW.  I READ THEM!

    I don't understand, why nothing is ever said about Hillary's and Obama's top aides having connections with Iran. I read Mrs. Wiener's, Mother, has a seat in the government and Valery Jerwett (sp?) was in the Iranian military. Or was that fake news that I read on the internet? If it was not fake news, they should be look at for spying.

    It seems that nothing will be done regarding Hillary Clinton. Too many people in power that will prevent that from happening. It is unfortunate that so many republicans are against President Trump keeping him fro getting anything done. Obama care, tax relief, etc. Those republicans that continuously oppose him should be voted out of office, which would mean that democrats get in. Those republicans should pay for their actions. It is only because of President Trump and his espousal of Christian beliefs that all this is happening!

    Mr. Huckabee, NO special counsel. Special counsels are like Forest Gump said about a box of chocolates, "you never know what you're going to get."

    Hi Mike, so glad to be able to write to you! I love your commentaries as well as your sense of humor! I’ll probably sound like a conspiracy theorist but here goes! I believe that Rosenstein advised Sessions to recuse himself knowing that he could not possibly help President Trump and it was also Rosenstein I recollect who gave the A OK to Trump to fire Comey. I feel this was planned and deliberate on the part of Rosenstein to isolate Trump and leave him vulnerable! Rosenstein had to know that if Comey was fired it would be the start of an investigation! The Deep State hoped that Trump would play into their hand. If Rosenstein really cared about Trump’s administration he never would have given such horrible advise to both Trump and Session!

    I am very tired and frustrated with the government and their handling of the Clinton crimes!! She needs to be held accountable as do those who worked with her in committal of these crimes!! The American people are tired of the double standard that continues to ruin our faith in the government. President Trump needs to continue to drain the swamp and to make sure those who have committed crimes are held accountable!!! Thank you for your newsletter, as I enjoy having the facts because the mainstream media has forgotten how to legitimately report the news and what consists of news that the American people want to read about! God bless!

    Mike,
    I am a follower of yours for a long time. All this comment appears to get us nowhere. This out and out corruption is so blatantly obvious and disgusting and the people seem powerless to correct it. How is it that we cannot make a difference? It seems that everywhere we look someone else is to blame or responsible for doing something about it and that someone passes the buck on to someone else. I listened to a part of the responses from Sessions the other day and it made me so angry I had to turn off the television. The BS coming from both sides was like listening to a bad Three Stooges comedy series. All we needed was someone hitting someone else over the head with a shoe. The system is so very badly out of control of anyone. We have the entire group of unelected bureaucrats running the country and selling off their political positions to promote themselves and their political advocates. The public is being hammered and the party of the conservatives has vanished. How do we fix it without getting out the guns and starting a civil war?

    Greetings from Mississippi, Mike. My comments are likely the same as other conservatives, which is why are they getting away with all these acts of treason? I am deeply disappointed and deeply concerned about our country’s future. We voted President Trump in to change things, but the Congress and courts won’t let him do anything. It’s so perverse that I just want to scream. The left is destroying our history, our morals, our freedoms we used to have, and worst of all they are destroying our Constitution! Being a Christian is now labeled a hate group! All I can do is pray and hope God will help us take back our beloved country. Thank you for your program and for standing up for the people who truly loveliving in the United States of America.

    I would also join the club. When we compromise our values in one area, we are self deceived, and soon we can no longer distinguish between right and wrong in other areas as well. As this spreads throughout the culture, we do not call others (especially our political friends) to account for wrongs that we also commit. The "swamp" is not only in Washington, it permeates our nation. What we see in Washington is a systemic problem. Until we have brave men and women who will live and lead by example in truth, personal sacrifice, personal generosity, and purity, we cannot expect to prosper as a nation. A true leader is a servant leader. Unfortunately, too much of the public "service" in America is actually a power trip for the benefit of oneself and his/her friends. I pray for the exceptional leaders who are working to bring peace, prosperity, and justice to all Americans. Mr. Huckabee, you at the top of that distinguished list. Thank you for your true leadership and service.

    Please lend your stature to the call to return the DoJ and FBI to legitimacy. Without the hard work to reset the DoJ and FBI we cannot begin
    to regain trust in the "rule of law". Those who think this reset is a bridge too far are conceding that we are finished.

    I join the chorus of others who comment, "I am so tired of the Clinton impact on our country." Why won't anyone do anything about the massive corruption they represent and bring them to justice or is it like my husband says, "There is no justice in our justice system."??? Even Harry Truman believed ex-presidents should not capitalize on their position once they leave office. Harry is rolling around in his grave, I'm sure, along with a few other ex-presidents.

  • Daniel T Winfield

    Mike, I understand the great value of exposing the sins of the Clintons and the Democrat Party, by reporting them publicly, but--is there no hope of legal action against them? Must we just see it and swallow it? With no hope for Justice? It surely seems that way. The Clintons know that so long as all we do is yell about it, they are safe. They can just say it's politics and go right on. So can the Dems. Therefore I am praying this way--"Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, Lord. Let the light of God reveal to America the cancerous evil that is destroying her. Let those destroying our nation be revealed to the nation for what they truly are. Let Thy Justice reign over us all. Amen."

    I wasn't aware that we could get another special prosecutor who would be as corrupt and blue as Mueller. And can't Trump or Sessions get rid of the traitors, i.,e. Mueller, Rosenstein, and clean out the Justice Department. Speaking of Sessions he needs to put on his big boy pants and do what he was appointed to do, clean the swamp! Mike Huckabee, we need more of you, genuine, truthful patriots.

    The so called "Russian Collusion" never made any sense from the start.
    Why would the Russians try to elect a candidate (Trump) whom they couldn't control? For the Russians, Trump would be a loose cannon... whereas the Russians could easily influence & control the Clintons with a supply of cute Russian hookers to Bill ... and/or a couple of secret Swiss accounts for Hillary & Chelsea?
    The Russians aren't stupid.

    no articles of impeachment should be filed. Trump has done nothing wrong. they should have been filed against oblamer when he was in office. he tried his best to destroy America. and would have done so if left in office another term. God bless America. and God bless Trump.

In your opinion is there anyone to can bring justice to Swamp and hold EVERYONE accountable to the crimes that they have committed including the Clintons? I don't have much faith in AG Sessions he just seems like "Mort Meek" in this role...I think we need a real AG that is a pit bull...Just my humble opinion...

    Good Morning Governor, I just want to start off telling you what a pleasure it is to hear you talk every time you're on a program. I know I'll hear truth, honesty, & patriotism. BTW I love Sarah!!! Just very frustrated not only with those cronies in WA but extremely with Sessions lack, disconcern, & No comments about the blatant evidence of corruption uncovered on key lying players i.e. HRC, Barry, Lynch, Holder, Mueller, Comey, Rosenstein. What's going on or why isn't anything done??? Maybe you can explain this lack of action to We the People. I think We need to hear some kind of explanation from our elected officials. We're very frustrated!!
    Sincerely, Marta Cibotti

    I like your comments Mike but you never answer when ask this question what about term limits being put into place. That would end the grid lock once and for all. Maybe President Trump could sign it into law that would start the drain of the swamp.. We are slowly falling further down rather than going up as long as the old heads are in office. It is so mired up around Washington that it is a surprise that all the wild hogs in American have not made it their home as they love swamps. My father was a minister and a Democrat he would turn over In his grave to see what has happened to that party today. I pray I am wrong but I see another war with in the U.S. if something is not done and very soon. Is this what you and others want to leave to our grand children I know I do not. I think you are a good person but don't let your foot get mired in the mud where you live with in the Washington circle. Have a great day.

    The minute Hillary threw her hat in the ring I literally got on my knees and prayed that God would not allow her to win. Prayers answered. After the election, it was clear that evil was running rampant as evidenced by the horrifying behaviors of her followers. I prayed that she would step in and sincerely appeal to these people to accept the election results in a grown up manner. For whatever reason, this prayer went unanswered.
    For as long as I've been aware of her presence, I've known she was insincere, self serving and just pure evil. And yet nothing is done. No, the powers that be choose to manufacture charges against the one president who really has our best interests at heart. When will it end? Why is she allowed to walk the streets when so many who have done so much less are incarcerated... or dead?
    BTW, your daughter is doing an amazing job. I know you are so proud of her.

I know, he has done a great Job so far, And with God's Help, he will clean out the rest of the slime, God gave us this country, stands by it and governs it. The rest of the world can't see that through there rose colored glasses. I will keep praying for results, and for God to Continue to show President Trump the way, continue give him insight, and to continue to give him strength. Too bad the non-Believers Haven't looked at Kim Clement's 2007 Prohpecy youtube about President Trump, Non-blievers might figure out, they are dealing with someone higher and bigger than they are, and more powerful than the Clintons!

So how does Rosenstein have that much power? Power above the President of The United States? Power above the Law??? Has the President been stripped of his power, is he now just a puppet? Is the FBI more powerful than him???????? ALL THIS EVIL IN THE DEMOCRATS CONTROL.........ARE THEY ALL ABOVE THE LAW AND NOW UNTOUCHABLE???? PLEASE HELP ME UNDERSTAND AND HOW THIS HAPPENED???? Is America NOW A LAWLESS COUNTRY, NO MATTER WHO IS IN THE WHITE HOUSE??? Has a "COUP" happened??? Has George Soros taken over America????

    President made a serious mistake appointing Mr. Sessions. He needs to remove sessions and every other Obama hold over to even begin to drain the swamp. Sessions should have instigated criminal proceeding against Comey, both Clintons and everybody at the IRS from the top down and every intelligence service who probably are the criminals behind the whole Russian BS and half of Congress and Senate who have been selling the country down the river for their private interests. They really need to impose term limits although private interest would probably corrupt a newly elected congressmen or Senator before their pants got warm from taking their oath and getting seated.

I am so sick of Obama & Hiliary & SO-O-O- sick of seeing their photos! I'm also tired of the Republicans who are trying to undermine President Trump.

    Your comments support my serious concerns about asking for a special counsel to investigate HRC. Folks seem to forget that Congress has the power and I believe the duty to coduct such investigations. Continually giving away Congressional power to so-called "independent" experts has proven to be a mistake before and with the Clintons likely even more so. I would rather find a few members of Congress with backbone backed up by strong character to do the job. Hopefully the Speaker could find his way to publicly supporting the effort. Plus politically, if well done, it will place the Democrats in the very prominent position of being reduced to cover-up artists as they run to cover from the facts which will involve many of them. Follow the money !!!

    you should be the president....you are a kind, generous, wonderful gentlemen for whom I have the greatest person
    respect. The RNC is hell bent on re=election of its current congress and should be, but NOT at the expense
    of "breach of promise", "failure to meet promises" and the current tax reform is both of those by my
    CALCULATION......my wife and I, upper mid class Americans will have a major INCREASE IN TAXES , due to
    loss of state and local tax and property tax itemized deductions....that is NOT what we voted for. We
    are very "displeased" and "concerned" as we believe the proposed tax reform will give "windfall profit"
    to corps to pass on in the form of exec comp pkgs...and will NOT flow down to the mid-class.
    It is a "hurry up",, better than nothing" plan that is WORSE than nothing. Your are a great person.
