“It’ll eventually come out.  You cannot hide something this corrupt this long.”


So said FOX News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett on Monday’s “Hannity,” speaking in the context of new revelations about James Comey personally stopping an offer of immunity to Julian Assange that would have provided technical evidence of whether or not Russia did the hacking of documents relating to the 2016 campaign.  It’s a stunning story, but before getting into the details, I’d like to make an observation that I think is really important right now.


OUR TOP STORY: What happened at the Red Hen was nothing like the Christian baker case

Going through readers’ comments, I’ve been struck for some time about the note of resignation underlying many of them.  It’s understandable; when Obama was President nothing happened to political operatives --- I mean, “public servants” --- serving under him who misused their offices and/or lied:   Lois Lerner at the IRS, former Attorney General Eric Holder and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, just to name a few.  Some, perhaps most, will never be held accountable in a court of law.  Common sense tells us that Obama was involved, he’ll probably live out his life in a mansion in Hawaii.  Hillary has always skated; she likely will again, though we KNOW what she did (well, a lot of it).  And it’s frustrating when the only wall to be put up is the one around the DOJ.


But the Clinton/Obama years are over.  And we’re going to dig until we reach the dregs of what they left behind.  This is how the swamp is drained; it’s a slow, mucky, often demoralizing process.  We don’t know what’s under there, but we know there are big gators, the kind who went to Harvard and wear suits and carry briefcases.


If Hillary had been elected President, we never would have known.  But she WASN’T, and while we were on our knees thanking God, the swamp dwellers were going into panic mode.  Imagine how much more corrupt the system would have been after just one term –- maybe two, dear lord  –- of Hillary Clinton.  Just look at the hysterics going on now among deranged “progressives”;  we’ve churned the waters and disturbed their comfortable lairs.  At this point, the process is underway; it won’t be pretty but it won’t be stopped.


One caveat:  if the Democrats win the midterms, they’ll do whatever it takes to stop the clean-up.  They’ll subvert democracy by impeaching the President over nothing and take control of the investigative committees in the House and Senate.  They’ll do it with impunity, with the media on their side.  This scenario must be prevented on Election Day.


Bu thanks to Republicans on those committees taking their constitutional duty seriously, and certain reporters who should receive Pulitzers but probably aren’t counting on it, we are getting to the bottom of this.  I believe Gregg Jarrett is right.


Now, here’s that fascinating expose from The Hill’s John Solomon, one of the “certain reporters” referred to above, about more of James Comey’s swampiness.  To make a long story short (a link to the full details is below), in January of 2017, Julian Assange’s legal team made overtures to the new Trump administration about negotiating an immunity deal with the DOJ.  Assange, as you know, was holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he remains to this day, and the intelligence community believed he possessed information and technical expertise that would benefit our national security.  He was not going to reveal sources, he said, but redactions were negotiable.


And this part, I believe, is key:  According to Solomon, Assange offered to include “technical evidence and discussion regarding who did not engage in the DNC releases.”


One of the players in this back-and-forth, Democratic Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, apparently talked with then-FBI Director Comey about their negotiations, and Comey, amazingly, passed along instructions through him to “stand down.”  Do NOT pursue this.  According to multiple sources, the FBI counterintelligence team did not know what motivated Comey to come out with such a baffling directive.  It muddled the negotiations and the damage was done:  Assange released some specifics of our CIA malware used for cyberattacks, then-CIA Director Mike Pompeo slammed Wikileaks as “a hostile intelligence service,” and, gosh, we never did find out who it was who did not hack the DNC.

Russia, perhaps?  Assange has insisted that it was not the Russian government or any other state operative, but all we have is his word.  He was going to provide hard evidence.  That would have destroyed the narrative that Russians did the DNC hacking and perhaps add support to the theory that it was an inside job.


Don’t lose heart.  Instead, brush up your Shakespeare, who said, “Truth will out.”  It WILL be known.

    Isn't it amazing that everything that Assage has exposed is TRUE?

    Thank you for this article. Clearing the Swamps is certainly the only way to put America back on the path of a true Republic, from which we have strayed so far. My prayers are for truth to be revealed.

    Thanks for always being honest and forthright. I’m one of the discouraged that just wanted Obama & Clinton to be exposed & prosecuted. Especially Hillary, for all the evil she’s done to so many.

    I read the information Wikileaks gave on this and I know it was not Russia! It was a Bernie Sanders supporter who had information from the DNC and he was killed and lap top was gone! It was Seth! He found out about the betrayal from the DNC who funneled all money through to Hillary so she could bypass FEC!

    Julian can still put an end to the "Russian hacking" nonsense. We just have to convince President Trump to grant him a preemptive Presidential pardon in exchange for his testimony. This could be the only way to save the President from impeachment, should the Democrats take control of Congress, but he needs to do this before the midterm elections.

    Thank you, Mr. Huckabee, for being you, a man we can trust. You not only help clarify what is going on, but you do it with hope and encouragement through, I believe, your relationship with Jesus Christ. And special thanks to you and your wife for raising Sarah. I thank God for you and your family.

    The corruption is so deep, it's unfathomable. I am thankful for the knowledge that God is in control and that we are on the winning side. Thank you for all you and your family do.

    Seth Rich. Assange pretty much all but said do. They killed him for it.

    Thank you so much for the encouragement.
    Please let the administration know
    That the FBI are hiring people to do what they call Survailence Jobs.
    The jobs are really deep state jobs. The new agents are told they are targeting criminals or potential terrorist. Most of them are not doing that at all. Most are targeting
    Innocent Americans with false information on them provided by organized crime trained liars.
    This is happening by the thousands.
    Please stop them from hiring and tell them to stand down from attacking average citizens. They intentionally let the target know they are being slandered and harassed and often framed. THAT IS NOT LEGAL SURVAILENCE. That is an organized crime program called "abomination
    Of desolation" it is slow psychological murder. They even attack pregnant and handicap
    People and loyal veterans.
    We are learning where these people congregate. Because of their aggressiveness there are people that may start fighting back out of desperation. The FBI MUST BE STOP ON THIS FRONT.

    Mr. Huckabee I enjoy your editorials. We need more men like you, Christian men standing for what is right. I am so sorry your daughter was treated so disrespectfully at the restaurant. Her relationship with the Lord was evident in how she handled the disrespectful owner of the resturant. Thank you Mike for all you do. Sincerely Pastor Gary Thurman, Beaver Creek Cowboy Church, Duncan, Oklahoma

    Thankyou for the Evening Update! I try to always read it. I sleep better !

    You're right, Governor Huckabee. It's very disconcerting and VERY disappointing knowing that none of these traitorous criminals will ever be brought to justice. Once again, proof to the American people that certain people are above the law. They should all be in prison right now awaiting their day in court.
    On another note, please let your daughter know that mainstream America loves her and her role in the Trump administration. She is absolutely phenomenal at what she's doing and we could not appreciate her more!!! Thank you!!

  • Linda Radosevich

    Thank you, Governor for your insights. To those who lament that 'no one will be held responsible', I remind you that 'vengeance is mine, says the Lord'. We are not allowed to be vengeful, but must pray for those who are oppressing, vilifying, attacking. (That's a more Biblical way of saying, "What goes around, comes around.") Thanks Carolyn McCraw (below) for letting me add to your thoughts.

    I am getting old...and I guess I am getting impatient. I have prayed my great-great grandchild that is on the way would have a better world than what we are in right now but my Bible tells me that probably is unlikely. But I read your comments and at least get a glimmer that we are trying. Thank you for that!

    Will we ever know who hacked the DNC? I say it was an internal job.

    Matthew 10:26 Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.
    Luke 8:17 For nothing is secret that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
    1 Corinthians 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one's praise will come from God.

    We stand on the promises of God!

    I just wanted to thank you for all that you do. You do a great service to the American people! You also have a great daughter. I know it can be difficult listening to the vile things the left say about you and your family! God will see us through these troubling times!

    The ostracism of the extreme Left reminds me of the reception that met the Vietnam veterans. Maxine Waters' call for "protest" is similar to the radicals of the 1960's...somethings never seem to change....sigh...

    As soon as the first big name falls all the rest will be trying to deal. I hope we bury them at Leavenworth.
