From JohnnyE:

The question begging to be asked is why Trump is making such great effort to impede the investigation about Russia messing with our election.

He's been firing investigators, FBI officials, prosecutors; subverting the House Intelligence Committee when Republicans were in charge; he's been threatening witnesses and judges on Twitter; and he and his cohorts have been lying about their extensive contacts with Russian officials and intelligence agents before and after the election. Numerous people close to Trump have been indicted or admitted guilt to crimes.

But this isn't just a white collar crime where strict rules of admissible evidence are needed. This is also a counterespionage investigation where numerous indications point to Russian meddling. The FBI and all the other intelligence agencies would be negligent if they didn't follow every lead no matter what Donald and FOX News pundits thought.

From the Gov:

Thanks for writing, JohnnyE. But I have to tell you, no one is saying that Russians did not try to interfere in our election (they always have and always will) or that we shouldn’t find out what they were doing. The problem is that the counterintelligence investigation opened by the FBI, which included a fraudulently-obtained warrant to surveil a member of Trump’s campaign, was based almost entirely on material created by an oppo research company, Fusion GPS, for his opponent’s campaign. The FBI ran with it and essentially accused an American citizen, Carter Page, of being a Russian agent. That’s not “following every lead,” that’s creating one.

If the primary intention of the FBI was to get to the bottom of Russian “meddling,” and they genuinely thought Russia was infiltrating Trump’s campaign, the thing to do would have been to go to the campaign, warn them, and work with them to catch the spies. But they didn’t. Wow, did they handle it wrong. And there is a great deal of evidence suggesting that they hated Trump and were really after HIM. If that’s true, we have as much to fear from our own federal bureaucracy as we have from Russia, maybe more.

They also failed to look into Bill and Hillary’s big-time Russian connections, which would normally raise eyebrows. Mueller’s investigation did not cover this territory, either.

It seems to me that Trump has done an admirable job of leaving the investigation alone. Robert Mueller has gone about his business unimpeded. Trump fired Comey (gosh, we’ve been all through this so many times) for good reason; people on both sides of the aisle wanted him gone. He finally –- finally –- accepted Jeff Sessions’ resignation, but with his “Russia” recusal Sessions was never a fully-functioning AG. Other firings were done internally, not by Trump, and those people needed to go. Rod Rosenstein is only now leaving, even with his serious conflicts of interest all this time. As for the tweets, we all wish Trump wouldn’t tweet, but that’s just him venting; he’s not DOING anything to stop Mueller.

Michael Cohen certainly lied about the timing of his discussions with Russia; maybe in the hearings this week he’ll address why he did that, as there was nothing illegal about the discussions themselves. I have a feeling that, being Michael Cohen, he just lies reflexively. Other indictments of “cohorts” had nothing to do with Russia; they were for process crimes or other illegalities unrelated to any conspiracy between Trump and Moscow.

Hope this clears a few things up for you. Mueller will be done with his investigation soon, though you’ll still get to enjoy never-ending investigations from House Democrats. For the sake of your health, I recommend cutting down on CNN and MSNBC.

    Thank you, Mike. After reading this, I am reminded why I love Gov. Mike Huckabee! You present your case fluently, but most importantly, truthfully. I have been a subscriber to your Newsletter, I believe, since you got started. I can always depend on you for accurate commentary along with an appreciated dose of humor. Please keep it up!

    It's pathetic what happened to the Grand Old Party. Listening to Cohen's testimony it's obvious the party is participating in the coverup instead of trying to find out what's really going on. They spent all their efforts to kill the messenger instead of actually mentioning trump himself and investigating all the suspicious activities he was involved with. [by the way, the Fusion GPS story just confirmed info they already had from other foreign intelligence agencies]

    The Clown Show by Cummings is entertaining, but more importantly distracting to the REAL problems addressing America. One of several lessons that my Dad passed on to me BEFORE I joined the navy in 1957, was TRUTH is sometimes Hard but necessary to have Character. Son, You will cross paths with many people in Life but the ultimate Judgement your REQUIRED to have is Integrity and Liars and Thieves have neither.

    Thank you for clarifying about these latest interrogations. It sounded like everyone was doing illegal things.
    Instead of watching TV, I should have just read your explanations.

    Also, it seems unreal that anyone could ever think it would be appropriate to kill a live baby.
    People who don't read Scripture need to be taught that unmarried girls are not to be intimate before marriage.
    Married women have access to items which prevent pregnancies. If an accident occurs, love the child and protect
    your child's life with your own.

    Hello Mike:
    I appreciate the reply, but I think we are missing major points: The Mueller investigation is all about covering up what the Obama administration did to weaponize the DOJ, FBI, and Intelligence Agencies and the insurance policy that Hilary's supporters concocted. Not any of the crimes that Trump's cronies committed have anything to do with Russia. If you want to find out who was doing business with the Russians, look no further than the Clintons and Uranium One. If you want to know who was interfering with FBI and the DOJ, look no further than Comey taking on the role as Prosecutor and Jury above his sanctioned role in the FBI as the investigator. I don't like what Trump's cronies did in "past lives", nor the fact that Trump is an apparent adulterer, but his group's petty misdeeds don't even rate in the same universe as attempting to nullify a Presidential election. Please tell these folks to ask the question as to why Clapper, Comey, Clinton, Lerner et al aren't in prison for lying to Congress about substantial misdeeds, but Cohen is.

    Thanks Governor Huckabee for all you do ( and your daughter ). Love your comments. I have just one thing to add that I have not been able to understand in this whole Russian interference/ colution/ obstruction investigation. Besides the dosier coming from the Democrats, they were allowed to conduct their on investigation on hacking of their computers and the FBI accepted their findings and they didn't even take these computers. Is this not a conflict of interest, to use the dosier and the hacking report both generated by th Democrats-- the opposing party in the race? How is this a fair investigation? I know,it's not. Wish more people like Johnny E could see that.

    I can understand a reply like this bc their news sources are fake. The fake news channels do a good job of making their news seem real and right. I’ve watched CNN and MSNBC and they leave important facts out all the time. It’s pure deceit and manipulation. Try One AMerica News OAN if you don’t like Fox. The videos only lie if you don’t show all of it.

    Future historians will look back on this spectacle and wonder how DNC-Russian collaborators conspired to tamper with an election by removing a duly elected American president using trumped-up, manufactured "evidence" as the basis for a baseless term-long "collusion" claim, and did not themselves receive the full deserved reward of impartial justice.

    Thank you Mr Huckabee, that was so true. But I bet it went over that guys head. None of the democrats will accept the truth, just like they refuse to accept an election that is over the halfway mark. Lord help us in the next election. Again thank you for your insight

    Thanks Mike for showing the errors to this person who believed the fake news. The only problem is he still believez the president of the United States colluded with the Russian. Even though the evidence showes just the opposite.

    Hi Mike. I hear, nearly every day on our local news, that Pres. Trump's state of emergency declaration (for wall building purposes) will certainly take money from the DOD & our military. This really irritates me each time I hear it stated this way as I'm fairly certain that the money taken from DOD would not be the money that is designated for our military functions. Maybe I'm wrong on this, but having worked for a few years in a not for profit research organization, I saw research grant monies from DOD coming in on a monthly basis for programs to research the effects of military training activities on the surrounding flora & fauna & I feel pretty sure that was (is) not the only facility in the USA to receive money from DOD for this type of thing. The research, essentially, is to determine whether or not threatened and/or endangered/protected species could survive and/or thrive in the types of conditions that our military might be creating in these training facilities. It wasn't just a small amount of money either. I'm all for preserving natural habitats and nature in general, but sometimes priorities change and protection of our own citizens needs to be first. Wouldn't the DOD money that is pulled to help build this wall be more likely to come from a program such as this, rather than actual military activity monies? If I'm correct on this, isn't there a way we can let the general public know that not all DOD money goes directly to the military and that the wall money would, most likely, not be taken directly from military funds? People hear reports such as the ones I keep hearing & I can't help but think that the majority will believe wholeheartedly that President Trump is pulling dollars from our military protection in order to build wall protection... this kind of reporting really gets me fired up!! (Can't we make it stop?)

    PS- Keep up your enlightening reports (& comments, though sometimes I wish I could give an LOL or thumbs up response to some of your comments).
