As it turns out, the explosive New York Times article about “Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign, appeared just prior to the release (at last) of Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report, and that is no accident. What looked like a blockbuster expose was nothing of the kind –- it was obviously intended as a way to help those top-level players at the FBI stay ahead of some potentially catastrophic revelations. Stunning news about “national security letters” used to put a spy (or spies) undercover and surveil multiple members of the campaign was casually buried deep within the 4,100-word article. Their hope is that when you and I finally see the IG report --- a few weeks from now, I’m sorry to say, as the DOJ gets to have a look first and respond --- the worst of it will have blown over.

Nice try, New York Times, but it won’t work. This is not going away.

As I mentioned when first talking about the article, Andrew C. McCarthy came up with a sharp observation about the sneaky thing the FBI did: Since they wanted to investigate where there was no underlying crime, they opened a counterintelligence, rather than a criminal, investigation, in the hope of UNCOVERING a crime. McCarthy has an insightful new column in which he builds on this idea. He sees it as the most important point to be made.

According to McCarthy, using counterintelligence powers, such as spying and electronic surveillance, to conduct a criminal investigation is an abuse of power. And that’s just what they did.

The "Blue Wave" begins to break

By Mike Huckabee

This is why the "blue wave" already seems to be breaking on the shores of reality. I told you that generic “unnamed Democrat or Republican” polls are useless because no race ever involves generic, unnamed candidates. And the race can easily be lost in the primaries.

At the moment, the most fired-up, Trump-hating, pro-socialist radicals are insuring that the Democratic Party will be stuck in November with a slate of candidates who…(now, let me see if I can make up something so far-out it couldn’t possibly be true. Oh, I know!)…who think it’s a bad thing that America won the Revolutionary War because if we were still subjects of the British crown, we could get in on that sweet government medical care that’s recently made news for killing babies while blocking their parents from doing anything to save them.

A response to your comments, questions on FBI misconduct

By Mike Huckabee

Some of the comments and questions I received on yesterday’s newsletter story about information gleaned from the Strzok-Page texts were incredibly insightful –- you know I always read them –- and I wish I could offer quick answers to them all. Many of them fall into a few overall themes: the obvious double standard in Washington and the media, with the lack of “justice for all”; the apparent worthlessness of Attorney General Jeff Sessions (among others); the hesitance of President Trump to use his constitutional authority to fire government officials and declassify documents that still haven’t been released or have been mostly blacked out; the frustration that Robert Mueller will never end his investigation; and fear for democracy itself.

There’s no easy end to this, but every day brings more evidence that it’s unraveling. The scandal within the FBI and DOJ seems now to be centered on the cast of characters we’ve come to know all too well: former FBI Director James Comey, acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, demoted FBI official Peter Strzok (who seems to be in the thick of it all and is still, unbelievably, employed at the Bureau), and former McCabe legal assistant Lisa Page. Then-CIA Director John Brennan (now a contributor at MSNBC, where he fits in well) seems to have been in on the get-Trump scheme from the very start; in fact, he launched it. And don’t forget former CIA Director James Clapper. It’s all coming out; the FBI/DOJ can delay delay delay, and officials can go before Congress and lie lie lie, but they’re not going to keep their misdeeds under wraps forever. That would have been possible only if Hillary had been elected.



A Huck's Hero salute to Mark Dixon

By Mike Huckabee

A giant salute today to a four-star Huck’s Hero, school resource officer Mark Dallas of Dixon, Illinois. Students at Dixon High School were gathering near the gym at 8 a.m. for a graduation ceremony rehearsal when a 19-year-old male pulled out a gun and started shooting. While the students ran for cover, Officer Dallas (unlike some other officers I could name) ran toward the gunfire. The suspect fled, and Dallas gave chase. The suspect fired at Dallas several times. He returned fire and wounded the suspect. When police arrived, the suspect was arrested and is recovering from non-life-threatening injuries.

Officer Dallas is being rightly hailed as a hero for saving countless lives. Without him, think of how much time would have passed between the first shot and the police arriving, time during which the shooter would have been unimpeded in a target-rich environment. What could have been a tragedy on a mass scale was stopped in its tracks with no injuries to any students because there was an armed officer on duty – a “good guy with a gun” and the courage to run toward danger and to use a firearm as it was intended, the way law-abiding gun owners use them up to 100,000 times per year: to prevent crimes and protect innocent lives.



Narrative-busting in the Middle East

By Mike Huckabee

In their efforts to paint Israel as a violent aggressor and to somehow blame President Trump’s decision to keep America’s promise to move our Embassy to Jerusalem for the deaths of Palestinians who violently protested it, some Western media outlets were willing to air anything that promoted the narrative. Among them were claims that the Hamas-backed protesters were unarmed and engaging in such peaceful activities as flying kites when they were brutally attacked by Israeli troops.
