Lisa Page:  [Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right?  Right?!

Peter Strzok:  No.  No he won’t.  We’ll stop it.

 

Set aside --- for the moment --- the Inspector General’s perplexing minimization of the role played by political bias in the FBI’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s email case.  (And perhaps you’ll want to take the opportunity to swallow some Pepto-Bismol to fight the waves of nausea.)  This exchange of text messages in August of 2016, which for some reason wasn’t even discovered until last month, may speak more eloquently than the entire 568-page report about the political climate at the FBI.

 

Strzok and Page weren’t rank-and-file staffers at the FBI.  Strzok was a top-level player, central to both the Hillary and Trump/Russia probes (he was even on the Mueller team till some of his anti-Trump text messages emerged), and, unbelievably, he's remained employed at the FBI with his security clearance intact.  Lisa Page was the legal assistant to deputy Director Andrew McCabe –- surely the “Andy” referred to in another anti-Trump exchange with Strzok about the “insurance policy.”  And these two weren’t the only ones; the IG report includes other anti-Trump texters.  (No anti-Hillary or pro-Trump texts were to be found.)  The report shows an FBI clearly infected with anti-Trump bias.

Confusion reigns within America's universities

By Mike Huckabee

Those of you who never miss my TBN TV show “Huckabee” (and if you have missed it, you can see past episodes here, so there’s really no excuse:  https://www.tbn.org/programs/huckabee/episodes) will remember my April 28th interview with Cabot Phillips of CampusReform.org.  He’s the young man who bravely ventures out into America’s university campuses armed only with camera and microphone and asks students questions guaranteed to trigger them into running for the nearest Play Doh-equipped safe space.  Well, he has a new video up, and it’s a must-see.

In this one, he interviews George Washington University students about the Supreme Court decision in favor of Colorado Christian baker Jack Phillips.  The question: should a Christian baker be forced to take a job making a same-sex wedding cake if it violates his religious beliefs?

Memory Lane

By Mike Huckabee

With jobless claims at a 44-year low, retail sales strong and consumer confidence at an 18-year high, the Atlanta Federal Reserve has raised its second quarter GDP growth estimate from 4.6% to 4.8%.

With Democrats hoping to take over Congress again in November, let’s take a stroll down Memory Lane, to when Donald Trump said in a debate with Hillary Clinton that his policies could bring growth up from 1% to 4% or even higher. Obama scoffed that Trump had no “magic wand” to make better trade deals, raise growth or bring jobs back. And the Washington Post offered this lengthy, detailed, carefully researched and achingly condescending lecture to the simpleton Trump for why robust growth like that in India or China was simply not possible anymore in the US. And this analysis had to be correct. After all, it quotes a Harvard professor!

Hillary investigation in one sentence

By Mike Huckabee

500+-page IG report on FBI’s Hillary investigation summarized in one sentence: The FBI interviewed her without recording her or taking notes; let her delete her emails, scrub the hard drives & smash the devices; then the IG concluded there's no evidence of wrongdoing.

Report reveals bribery

By Mike Huckabee

One of the little-reported details in the Inspector General’s report is that “numerous FBI employees, at all levels of the organization and with no official reason to be in contact with the media…were nevertheless in frequent contact with reporters.” And these contacts (i.e., “leaks”) extended to “improperly receiving benefits from reporters, including tickets to sporting events, golfing outings, drinks and meals, and admittance to nonpublic social events.”

Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit, himself a law professor, had the best take on this, noting that it is prosecutable as bribery “because...it’s bribery.”

Comment of the Day

“I'm hoping to wake up some morning, and find US Marshalls conducted pre-dawn raids at the homes of Rosenstein, Mueller, Comey and others in this cabal, and that TV cameras recorded events as they did the perp walk to black SUVs, where they were taken 'downtown' and booked. (It's sort of a senior citizen version of the daydream where Audrey Hepburn smiles at you). Maybe when Jeanine Pirro is AG, and Jeff Sessions is home in Alabama drinking sweet tea.” – Lawrence F.

    The IG report is like putting lipstick on the wrong end of the pic

    Governor, Respectfully request your interpretation of the research I've done and an answer to my proposed question.
    Thank you for your newsletters and keeping us informed. (A concerned, confused, angry and important citizen.
    My question is whether (legally), those mentioned in the DOJ report, can be charged with Treason. I've read the Articles "in our Constitution and their arguments; and from what I'm understanding, there is room there to be charged with Treason, as long as Congress deems it so.

    1.
    Political Crimes:

    Other scholars claim that "high crimes and misdemeanors" has a well-defined meaning--it refers to so-called "political crimes" (an old legal term). A crime is "political" when it involves the misuse of a politician's official powers. (Is that not what the FBI did)

    2.
    Federalist No. 65 (Alexander Hamilton) says that impeachable offenses "proceed from the misconduct of public men ... from the abuse or violation of some public trust." (impeached changed to Treasonous Acts)
    3.
    "High" crimes:

    "high crimes and misdemeanors" refers to "crimes against the state." A crime is against the state when it attacks the very core of the state's apparatus--treason is against the state
    4.
    There is a linguistic argument that "treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors" implies that high crimes and misdemeanors must be equal in seriousness to treason and bribery. So the inclusion of "other" suggests that the second half of the phrase ("high crimes and misdemeanors") is comparable in seriousness to the first half (treason and bribery).
    There is undeniable proof, the high-ranking agents in the FBI committed those acts. If Congress were seriously doing their job, Should not this interpretation be implied. Were they not subversive, in attempting to form a coup to abolish this President, not only before his election, but even afterwards as Trump was a legally elected president.
    They also accepted bribes from the media who were also in illegal cahoots with these (technically politicians) FBI agents.
    Thank you for your sincere preponderance of this question

    Mike, with regards to all of these things that these Big People Do, who are most often attorneys knowing the law, all other citizens know that if we broke the law in any degree like they knowingly have done, we would be carted off to jail. I just wonder when the day will come that they are put in jail...all this is so sickening. This double standard of the law, when will it end? When will those Big People see the Law Applied to them for their Illegal Actions? Mike, Please keep up posting these things. Is there such a thing as "Citizens Arrest" for the stuff these have done? Perhaps a group of Citizens should start Arresting them? Could they?
