Even after the release of a 568-page report documenting example after example of the stunning partisanship infecting our federal bureaucracy, new clues suggest we’re still just seeing the tip of the dirty old iceberg.  Inspector General Michael Horowitz has now turned his attention to the “Trump/Russia” investigation, and with any luck, maybe it won’t take another year and a half to complete.  Rep. Mark Meadows, chairman of the Freedom Caucus, said during his questioning of Horowitz that there is “growing evidence” that some of the FBI reports known as 302s have been changed.  If this happened during the Hillary email investigation, it is the same as evidence tampering.


 OUR TOP STORY TODAY: Hillary intended to break the law, FBI intended to absolve her


Another compelling revelation is that it looks as though more spying was done than we knew about, this time by a different spy, and that the spying started in May rather than July, the “official” start of the FBI investigation.  Someone with a long history of working as an FBI informant apparently approached both Michael Caputo and Roger Stone.

 

Michael Caputo, who had worked as an advisor to the Trump campaign, made news when he went public weeks ago to talk about the financial burden placed on those who were cooperating with the Mueller team.  Even though he wasn’t a target or subject of the investigation, he said, the cost of compliance was high, as he had to have legal representation just to participate as a witness.  To make money to pay his legal bills, he was thinking he’d have to sell his house in upstate New York and, regretfully, move his family to a big ciy where he could earn a bigger paycheck.  It would have drastically changed their lives.

 

But he set up a GoFundMe page, and apparently it did well, because he raised enough to pay his lawyers and also to hire some investigators to look into one part of his experience with the special counsel that was really bothering him.  In May of 2016, he had been approached by a man who identified himself as “Henry Greenberg” but who didn’t sound American.  The man had wanted $2 million in exchange for damaging information on Hillary Clinton.  Caputo’s investigators found that “Greenberg” had worked as an FBI informant for 17 years, so Caputo thinks the encounter may have been an attempt to spy on him and set a trap.

This person’s real name turns out to be Gennady Vasilievich Vostretsov, which sounds, um, extremely Russian.  Caputo’s investigtors discovered that the 59-year-old Russian citizen has worked under several aliases and has a long history of criminal behavior –- some of it violent –- in both the United States and Russia.  According to the “Greenberg Dossier” put together by Caputo and his team, Vostretsov spent years in prison in both Russia and America.  He admitted under oath that he has been a longtime FBI informant.  He is in this country, perhaps avoiding deportation because of his ties to the government.

 

Caputo was forthcoming about the encounter when he was called in to testify before the special counsel on May 2, and he got the impression from his questioner’s conduct that they already knew more about it than he did.  Thus he suspected that their questions about it were intended as a perjury trap.  The interviewer’s angry reaction to his transparency about the meeting with “Greenberg” also suggested that they had unsuccessfully set him up to trap him.  That’s what raised his curiosity about the real purpose of the initial contact and caused him to hire detectives to find out what was really going on.

 

It appears that Caputo definitely got his money’s worth from his investigators; check out the full “dossier” at his website (link below).  Again, we don’t yet have all the dots connected, but this story strongly suggests that more spying was taking place than we have confirmed at this point.  If it is what it appears to have been, that means it was yet another “collusion” with foreign spies –- this one Russian –- to help not Donald Trump, but Hillary Clinton.

Speaking of 302s, Sara A.Carter has conducted a fantastic interview with a former senior FBI official that reveals how interrogations and 302s are supposed to work.  It sheds a lot of light on what might have happened with Michael Flynn.  Extremely informative –- check it out.

    Dear Governor Huckabee, This is not pertinent to this article, but it is information I've wanted to get to you for quite some time. The U of A, Fayetteville, recognizes a veteran at every home basketball game. He/she is escorted to center court, presented a $500 gift card, and always receives a standing ovation. I appreciate that and thought you'd like to know some of the good things happening in your home state.
    Keep up your good work and your daily posts.

We never looked past you or Trump . You were the top two on our list . Tell her not to give up . She is the best spokes person this country has ever had and she is loved dearly . And not to let the few get her down . Just let it make her stronger . They are trying to run her off .

    Thank you Sara Carter for the excellent reporting.

    On another issue, In regard to what happened to Sarah Huckabee Sanders with the Red Hen Restaurant when they refused to serve her and her family. They have every right to deny service, but they should have posted a sign saying we do not allow conservatives or President Trump supporters to eat here and we will definitely stay away - my family will not spend a dime in RED HEN or any other restaurants that treat people differently because of their political views - I am sure there are plenty of restaurants that will take my family"s money. By the way, I would not have to take the restaurant to court like the liberals do to understand my money is no good with them.

    I have no doubt that when this web leads right up to obama and i would not be surprised, Hillary herself, obama and hillary will claim they were conducting an investigation to protect Trump and his family, especially the young'ns and democracy, the flag, etc. from those bad russians. I remember way back when we had here in new jersey that fine, esteemed, distinguished (we've been blessed with alot of 'em) Senator Harrison Williams. The FBI attempted to bribe the distinguished senator with cold cash posing as Arab influençistas but Senator Williams, beyond reproach that he was, stuffed his pockets with the cash, fully intending to conduct his own secret investigation into the influence peddling. Alas, the fine senator never got around to getting his secret Harrison Williams Bureau of Investigation off the ground. Perhaps Obama, Hillary, Stzork, comey, et al. (Perhaps even Mueller himself) were conducting an equally altruistic investigation on behalf of freedom, liberty, and the American way. That would explain all the cash the clinton foundation is swimming in.

    Do the republicans think that the democrats won’t use the nuclear option as soon as they need it? Why do they not enact it and pass the President’s agenda? Please do not publish my name

    I believe the average American knows or suspects just how corrupt Washington, DC's Federal Dept.'s are where the bosses are housed plus much more. Add the entire US Congress. You darn sure know as you were a politician. Look at Phil Bredesen running for Senate. Do you believe that the Houston NFL franchise just came to Nashville for a stadium? How about Nissan and Tyson Chicken. Look at the large Federal/DOD contractors plus the likes of Wall Street and Goldman Sachs. I think you know who runs who and how. Lockheed, Boeing, Booz, Hamilton etc.

    DC is full of TRASH. Generals are not Generals anymore as no man I served with would ever allow DADT or COED BCT that Bill Clinton pushed on all services in 1993 and 1986. My fellow combat troopers who survived retired by 1986. I would not serve in today's military.

    Hi, Mike. This is my 5th attempt to reach you! I need to speak to you privately, not on a social media. If you would let me know how to do this, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you, Jim Hager 909 379-9370

    It's absolutely awesome that, finally, the truth is getting exposed and some "swamp foxes" won't out-swim the hounds! The never-ending dishonesty, so plain to see, always seems to have some "back door" out of which to slither and it's absolutely infuriating! Coupled with the "do-nothing" congress, it is a very depressing state of the union.
    [Color me racist, which I am not] I know there were no Muslims involved in the writing of our basic national documents but, somehow, all the other religions have steadily and stealthily embedded themselves to the almost extinction of christianity. It makes me sick. I, for one, will NEVER bow to allah or anyone but God Almighty!

    Qanon and Corsi have been proven correct when they said this thing is deeper that we knew or imagined. Patience is required to dig through this septic tank. I’m thankful for and I pray often for those Patriots still left in our government. May the evil ones get justice speedily in our day.

    I have not heard anyone offer s reason why Peter Stroyk was moved to HR . My opinion is this: what better person to mine and remove data related to the spies hired by the FBI? Please adk this of someone who can investigate

    Good morning Mr. Huckabee,
    I'm just a bible thumping, gun carrying deplorable from a "fly over" state. While I don't consider myself "ignorant" I do consider myself realistic. You and I both know that no matter WHAT "evidence" is found, who was spying on who, who was trying to stop President Trump from being elected etc.....we know that no one will EVER see the inside of a jail cell and look forward to their "3 hots and a cot"! I don't wear rose colored glasses and while my husband often says to me "you're being righteous again" all my indignation and sense of fairness isn't going to change the fact that there is no longer any justice in this country (unless you are a left leaning Democrat). Lady Justice is no longer "blind"!

    I actually am tired of reading about how much they "have" on the Democrats from Hillary all the way down the line. Why doesn't President Trump act and get rid of Session, he's totally useless. Why doesn't he get rid of Rosenstein? The optics really don't matter do they. It doesn't matter what this President does he will never be accepted or respected. So, he might just as well get someone in the DOJ that is actually going to do their darn job! This circus should of been over long ago, it actually should of never gotten started.

    The hate and the animus in this country is beyond belief. But, there is a quiet rumble just under the surface and if you listen carefully you can hear it. It's coming and I have a feeling it "ain't gonna be pretty". The American's that voted President Trump into office have just about reached their breaking point. We are sick and tired of being lied to at every turn of the television channel. We are sick and tired of being "lectured" by those on the West coast that don't have a CLUE what this country is all about and frankly don't really care. We are sick and tired of our own government lying to us and NOT doing the job we sent them to Washington to do. We are just sick and tired.

    There will be a wave of new Representatives in Washington this Fall as we are going to systematically get rid of the "dead wood". They had their chance and they lied to us, took advantage of us and ignored us. They will not have the opportunity to do so again.

    I love your articles Gov. Huckabee ... keep 'em comin'!
    You may want to update some things sooner, though. E.G., (if I can paste my snapshot below -- nope this won't take it) ... the snapshot shows that today 6/22 your front page is still showing "Krauthammer Bad News" when it should show that he died a day or two ago! The other article is also older. Maybe your editors can keep those current rather than letting them run for many days?
    We're with you in all that you're trying to do for America. How the USA has changed in our lifetime! (We're now in our 70's). Bless ya!
