In response to my commentary on the FBI and Uranium One, reader Jerry J. brought up the name Marc Rich, the notorious financier and fugitive from justice who was pardoned for serious white-collar crimes (some involving Iran during the Iran hostage crisis) by then-President Bill Clinton on his way out the White House door.  Jerry thought there had been some connection between Rich and the Uranium One deal, that, in fact, he might have been a partner in one of the companies involved.  Carter Page, he said, had mentioned this in an interview with Sean Hannity –- and, yes, I, too, find Carter Page quite believable.  A little research turned up this magnificent article from 2017, which helps answers the question.  And, yes, there was a connection.

TOP STORY:  FBI: stop investigating high school yearbooks and start declassifying Uranium One

By Mike Huckabee

The FBI has been in the news a lot lately, mostly over the activities it will and will not be performing in an additional, week-long background check on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.  (That’s Background Check #7 for those keeping track.)  Not that there is corroboration for any of the allegations against him, but thanks to Sen. Jeff Flake, we’ve had to extend this national nightmare until the alarm clock goes off on Friday to wake us up.  Senate Democrats are going to keep trying to hit the snooze alarm, but that can’t be allowed to happen.  This bad dream needs to be over, and Kavanaugh needs to be seated on the Court.  Sen. Lindsay Graham is right --- this outright destruction of the confirmation process by Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee is the worst threat to our system of government that we’ve ever witnessed.

 Most everyone has expressed confidence in the FBI’s ability to do a good, time-efficient background check that’s untainted by political motivation, since most of the “bad apples” at the top are gone now and the vast majority of agents are assumed to be above-board.  But it’s hard to say; the FBI is a long way from fully redeeming itself in the eyes of those who now have good reason to distrust it.  The Bureau may do a very professional, unbiased job of checking out the decades-old claims against Kavanaugh, but it should be noted that the same old problems are occurring when it comes to obtaining FBI documents through the Freedom Of Information Act.  I refer specifically to one case that hasn’t been in the news much lately –- which is understandable at a time when our constitutional protections of presumed innocence and due process face existential threat –- but that mustn’t be forgotten:  Uranium One.



This could be a potential real "bombshell" story for a change:

By Mike Huckabee

This could be a potential real "bombshell" story for a change: Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s former boyfriend of seven years has written a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, contradicting several things she said under oath, and Chairman Grassley is demanding an explanation. The man, who asked that his name not be released (and good luck with that) claims that Ford never mentioned Kavanaugh or being assaulted to him; that she flew with him, including on a prop plane tour of Hawaii, without ever mentioning a fear of flying; that he found her a place to live that was 500 square feet with only one door, and she never mentioned a fear of small spaces or a need to have two doors; and most damaging of all, that he watched her coaching a friend on how to take a polygraph for a government job, despite claiming ignorance of how polygraphs works and denying she’d ever given anyone tips or advice on how to take a polygraph. 

Many wondered why prosecutor Rachel Mitchell asked that last question of her.  Now, there’s speculation that maybe she knew of this letter in advance.  If so, then Republicans who thought she was asking pointless questions might owe her a big apology.


Broaddrick says no

By Mike Huckabee

It’s becoming harder to swallow the cliche that people with incendiary claims that could harm President Trump’s Administration are so brave to stand up when there’s nothing for them to gain – especially since we’ve seen for decades that making a high-profile accusation against a Republican is a virtual guarantee of lucrative job offers, TV deals, speaking fees and book contracts.  Lately, add to that the shower of money collected from gullible individual liberals via Internet fundraising sites such as GoFundMe, where even former FBI agents who were fired after their own inspector general found they’d betrayed the public trust can snooker the public out of hundreds of thousands of dollars for “legal bills” or other expenses they may never actually accrue.

In light of that, hats off to Juanita Broaddrick, who has been trying to get hypocritical "believe all women" Democrats to listen to her accusation of violent rape against Bill Clinton for decades.  Someone set up a GoFundMe account to raise money for her, and she asked that it be discontinued.  She notes that it might be well-meaning, but “I won’t take money for what I am doing,” adding in all-caps, “DO NOT GIVE TO ANY GOFUNDME ACCOUNT FOR ME. THANKS.”

The linked story has more information about Mrs. Broaddrick’s refusal of money for her story and how other people have taken a very difference stance.

When Republicans Go Low, Democrats Go High, Part 1

By Mike Huckabee

Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign office in Houston was evacuated and two staffers sent to the hospital after an envelope in the mail was found to contain a mysterious white powder.  It was later deemed harmless and appears to be a hoax.  The only toxic substance was the sender’s political views.


“Progressive” Political Debate, Part 2:

By Mike Huckabee

A 42-year-old man in Rockford, Illinois, was arrested for allegedly vandalizing the Republican Party headquarters with anti-Brett Kavanaugh spray paint graffiti, reading “Shame” and “Rape.”  To his credit, Democratic Mayor Tom McNamara ordered public works officials to clean off the paint and posted on Facebook, “This type of behavior is unacceptable and certainly does not live up to our community’s values. We all have differences, but we must learn to disagree on policy without attacking people.”  With an attitude like that, he might be bound for national office someday.  But he might have to switch parties because he sure doesn’t fit in with the direction the national Democrats are moving.

    I would really like to see the FBI investigate to connection between Finestein’s husband an Blasey Ford. He is on the board of reagents at Palo Alto college where she teaches and was probably involved in the letter leak. I doubt Sessions will ever explore the link. Maybe President Trump or other REAL Republican representatives can get the FBI engaged
