In THE RIGHT STUFF, a terrific movie about test pilots and their role in the race for space in the middle of the last century, there’s one character that no one else in the story ever wants to see. He’s an old man, a solitary figure dressed in black, and just the thought of seeing him trudging slowly up one’s walk is enough to give anybody the shakes. For when he shows up at your door and removes his hat, it means that tragedy has struck and the worst has come. A plane has crashed, someone’s life is over, and the lives of his loved ones are changed forever.

The man in black takes his official duties very seriously. He’s always somber, like the Grim Reaper, yet somehow despite his sad face he gives the impression that he enjoys his work, perhaps a little too much. After all, his reason for existence is his lonely job, that long trudge up the walk and then the funeral to follow. He lives for death.

He’s tall and lanky, with straight gray hair and a long, craggy face.

He looks a lot like special counsel Robert Mueller.

I’m reminded of Mueller not just because of the physical resemblance, but because he’s in a position essentially to end people’s lives and careers and you get the impression he wants to. (Of course, he gets a lot of help from his longtime friends at the FBI and a huge team of legal attack dogs working at taxpayer expense.) Former Trump campaign communications advisor Michael Caputo has gone public to say he’s having to sell his house and move his family out of their small town because of the staggering cost of simply complying with Mueller’s investigation –- when he’s not a target or even a subject, only a witness. He and his family have also suffered verbal attacks and death threats, I suppose just for being "outed" for helping Donald Trump become President. Caputo has been so intimidated, he says he won’t work on any more Republican campaigns.

Michael Flynn lost his house, too, because of legal costs stemming from an interview he agreed to, not to mention his new job as National Security Advisor. Having nothing to hide, he talked to the FBI without a lawyer. Bad idea –- he had no idea he’d been caught in FISA phone surveillance and unmasked (this was before his name was illegally leaked) and may have gotten some detail wrong. But the two agents who questioned him have said they thought he was truthful. Didn’t matter; the fiction was maintained that he lied to the FBI, and because he was broke and unable to continue the legal fight, he pleaded guilty to something he doesn’t seem to have even done.

Those are just two victims; we all can name more. Of course, the big prize is the President himself –- that’s what this is about. And it doesn’t matter how big a legal mess has to be created, how much of the Constitution has to be stomped on, how many legal precedents have to be disregarded, how many false narratives need to be created, how many leaks and fake stories have to be planted, how many blatant conflicts of interest have to be ignored, how many subpoenas and FISA requests have to go unanswered, and how many obviously guilty people have to be let off when anybody else would get three hots and a cot.

Commentary continues below advertisement

Judge T. S. Ellis figured out this was Mueller’s game, and during a hearing last week about Paul Manafort’s case made it clear that he wasn’t going to be a party to it. He accused them of going after Manafort –- on allegations from years before Trump ran for office –- to get the man to “sing” (maybe “compose”) and target a sitting President, “for impeachment or whatever.” And he’s right. This is how far our “justice” system has sunk.

We’ve talked a lot in recent months, very specifically, about the strategies being used to bring down the President. Sunday’s edition (May 6) of Mark Levin’s new FOX News show, LIFE, LIBERTY & LEVIN, brings numerous aspects of the discussion together to show just how wrong it all is. One-time independent counsel and former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova –- who would have been on Trump’s legal team if another client at his firm hadn’t posed a conflict of interest –- and former Secret Service special agent Dan Bongino join Levin to address the serious Constitutional problems with what’s happening. The show covers a lot of ground and is a must-see.

But Mueller doesn’t care; he is unfazed. In fact, he just hired yet another attorney. And Trump’s political enemies still dream of him trudging slowly, slowly up the walk to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, ringing the bell and removing his hat, to break the news that the President has crashed and burned.

    Dear God have mercy! What an evil "Mueller" mess. For once we the American people VOTED in a man who is far from perfect (neither am I), who is NOT a politician, but has made more positive changes for our America in record time. My husband and I keep him and Vice President Pence in our prayers daily! Plus their families as they too are walking through this firestorm that the liberals, and their cronies have started even before President Trump said "I Do" to the Presidency. May the Lord have His way in all of this. Even if you do or do not believe, it is fact. God is in control. Let's keep lifting up our leaders especially our President in prayer.

    I think any other individual, president or otherwise, would have been consumed, chewed up, spit out, and beaten by Satan's right hand man, Mueller, by now. Thankfully, we have a President Trump in office who is strong enough, wise enough, and street smart enough to be able to carry on the immense task of running the country, negotiating the denuclearization of North Korea/Iran, and standing up for himself. The evil urging Mueller on, and the rise of the evil Socialist agenda urging Democrats on, is frightening. If there is nothing to stop these Gestapo tactics, we ALL lose our freedoms. Lest we forget - No country, no society is guaranteed perpetuity. We destroy ourselves from within when our Constitution is maligned, and who knows? We may go down in history as an interesting experiment that its people simply could not handle.
    God Bless, President Trump and his family. God Bless America.

    Are the people trying to impeach and remove Trump under the delusion that Hillary would then take the White House? Are they eager to see President Pence? Also, I can only see 5 comments; clicking the "next" button takes me to the article and the same first 5 comments.

    Good comparison of Mueller with "the Grim Reaper." But, I've thought about another comparison. After the Gestapo-like tactics being used against people associated with President Trump (like 5:00 am crash-through-the-door searches), I am reminded of Major Hochstetter in the TV sitcom "Hogan's Heroes." Okay, they don't look anything alike (physically), but you have to admit Mueller does look like a good Aryan, and he'd look real comfortable in one of those snappy black & white SS uniforms. I can just see it now, Hochstetter (uh, Mueller) storming into the Oval Office, shouting, "Who is this man, and why is he here?!" (speaking of Trump, naturally). But, it seemed Hochstetter, in spite of all his efforts, never got anywhere - just like Mueller!

    Good morning Governor Huckabee, we live in Arkansas and voted for you. Thank you for being an American who stands with GOD and the Constitution. Thank you for speaking out on the truth. We pray for you, our leaders, your daughter and your whole family. We pray for GOD to show up, in a big way, in America. HE did that in the 2016 elections and we pray that HE does that again, over Mueller and the liberals messs. I love the way you wrote this article.

    I fear for our country. I am hearing people talk about civil war if the deep state manages to drive Trump out of office. These are not people I read online- they are people I meet in real life. I thinnk we are in deep trouble as a nation. I also think I am helpless to do anything about it.

    Your description of the man in black in The Right Stuff and Mueller is very accurate. I can't believe this farce of an investigation is continuing, wasting time and taxpayers' money. I also can't believe that the Republicans who have a majority in Congress are not constantly demanding that this witch hunt be shut down immediately. Except for our brave Freedom Caucus, most Republicans, especially the leadership, are gutless and obviously don't want the President to succeed. They are a disgrace and in some way worse than the Democrats. For years they were saying build the wall, repeal Obamacare, stop illegal immigration, defund Planned Parenthood, stop raising the debt. So what do they do about all these promises if they had a majority - nothing. Schumer and Pelosi couldn't have done better themselves. I am disgusted with so many Republicans.

  • Mike Spears

    Gov Huckabee: The Mueller investigation is off the rails and as Mr. di Genova says, it is a "bad faith" investigation. Problem: The left always plays "hardball" and gets away with it and the right usually continues to play "softball." That's how the left keeps gaining ground. We need Congress to go full bore with Impeachment proceedings against Rosenstein. They need to go THERMO NUCLEAR with him. He is at the very least permitting Mueller to go rogue, and it is quite possible that he is encouraging it. If Congress goes "full bore" after Rosenstein, that will take some political heat off the President. This should send a strong message to Rosenstein. We need to make Mueller and his Democrat THUGS not only back off, but also show all their cards. Have they got a real "Russia Collusion" or not? Make them put up or shut up. It is also important to note that Mueller and most of his thugs have a highly dubious checkered past with use of Gestapo tactics and over zealousness as prosecutors in other venues. Finally, they are allowed to operate in secrecy. That also needs to stop. Glad to see that Rudy Guliani is going on the offensive and starting to make more information public to take away some of the cloak of secrecy. Of course this involves risk. In America, no one is supposed to be allowed to have UNFETTERED POWER like Rosenstein and Mueller have. This has to stop.

    I watched the Mark Levine Program of 5/6/2018. It was the best program I have ever seen to date on TV, exposing the root illegalities being propagated by the entire U.S. Government (Deep State Cabal) anti-Trump anarchists, their twisted perversions and their resistance to the "rule of law", since the Civil War. The Special Prosecutor's Office, under Mueller, and established by DOJ incumbents, is nothing but a diabolical "evil" scheme, designed to protect and keep Barrack Obama, his administration and the supporting incumbent "Deep State" bureaucrats from being exposed for what they truly are, and are illegally imposing their will on the citizens of this country. These anarchist, the most devastating political incumbents ever, within the history of the U.S.A., are attempting to retain their ever increasing status of power, stemming since the end of WWII, while implementing their continued illegal control over the United States of America. These anarchists must be rooted out, held accountable for their illegal actions and prosecuted to the full extent of the law of the U.S.. Failure of the current AG to take charge, regain control of the DOJ and bring this anarchist cabal to heel, is a National disgrace. If this diabolical "Deep State" organization is allowed to continue to flourish within its current established bureaucracy, it will divide this country into convoluted mini-states and destroy our guaranteed Constitutional freedoms. If this evil scheme is not stopped, then God help this Nation!

    More people than you realize are wondering,"Where is the tar, feathers, rail and tree?" You will never clean the swamp through peaceful methods as long as the Swamp Creatures are making the rules. Jefferson warned of this as did others. That's why we have the second amendment. The longest running democracy in the history of the world is teetering on the edge and most probably will not be saved through the legal process. Sixteen-year-olds voting will only speed our demise. I fear for my grandchildren because of the nation's inability to take the aggressive action necessary to reign in legalized tyranny.
    Thanks for keeping the info coming, although it is dis-heartening.

    Mueller needs to crash and burn and sooner rather than later.

  • Linda Elrod

    05/07/2018 05:19 PM

    It's my understanding that Mueller's level of power does not supersede the Presidents and that the President cannot be indicted.
    So, if this is true, how does this stone-faced grim reaper get away with his aggressive pursuit that has absolutely no basis for
    investigation. It's been proven at every turn; who's in charge of ending this foolish mockery and ridiculous sham so our President
    can peacefull run our country without so much consternation? I'm READY for it to be OVER!
    I feel sorry for President Trump! He's doing a fantastic job despite the duress he's under. Give me a break! Who does this "jackass" Mueller think he is! I selfishly wish President Trump would fire him so he couldn't hurt anyone else. His day's coming, mark it down--- what goes around comes around my Mom used to say, and invariably it's true. Just look what happened to "Brother Comey" and he was in up to his eyeballs with Mueller's DOJ hierarchy. I can't wait to see their fake house of cards tumble down around them.
    Keep up the good work Gov. Huckabee, I know you're fighting hard for President Trump and Democracy's sake, and I truly appreciate all
    that You do.

  • William Schlumpf

    05/07/2018 04:31 PM

    If Mueller were not ethically challenged he
    would have recused himself in all matters pertaining to his friend Comey (the guy who is fixated on height, hand size and tie length). The purported questions to Trump are interesting in that they query Trump's thought process in a quest of discovering a crime and sidestep a crime which was committed when the FBI set up the President of the United States by informing him of a fictional dossier and withholding pertinent information about its source - when the President asked him to investigate who the source was. Someone at that meeting leaked its subject matter to the press whereby the dossier, already known for months by the press but not considered credible to report became reportable because it was the subject matter in the conversation between the President and the FBI Director. This smells like an intentional setup by Comey to get the contents of the dossier released by the media. I am half seriously wondering if Mueller and Comey are meeting at a secret underground parking garage and colluding. Actually if that were the case it would be called conspiracy. Think the parking garage where Woodward and Feldstein met is no longer.

    The reason I enjoy reading your newsletters is because you are keeping us informed about the degree of corruption in our Justice System. I cannot understand how Sessions, Rosenstein and Mueller get away with their absolute disregard for the citizens and laws of the US and they make their rules as they go. Who is Sessions afraid of? He can't defend or just stand behind the President of the US who unfortunately put him in that position. President is up against the most corrupt criminals in US history. I don't doubt that Obama and gang are strongly supporting Mueller and Rosenstein and are as involved in taking down the President.

    I agree with others, and they are many, that this is a witch hunt and I also feel angry that Mueller is playing us all for fools. I can hardly wait for the tables to turn on him and they will because God is watching and he will be his judge, boy is he in big trouble. Would not want to be him.

    I have to say this even though God says pray for your enemy it is hard but I have been asking God to change the people of gov.and the FBI of the democratic party to change their hearts and become Christians of love to our Father in heaven and let our dully elected President do his job. I just cannot understand anyone voting for anyone in the democratic party, new ones or the old timers that have been in Washington gov. offices for to many years.

    05/07/2018 03:26 PM

    When Hillary Clinton called Trump supporters a bunch of "deplorables," she was letting it slip what socialist democrats like her and the Obama team really thought of us. We stand between them and their vision of total control over every person in the country and that is deplorable. Only they know what is best for the common good (common meaning them) and Trump and his supporters are the ones left in the land that see through their plan. They have as you have said, found the Grim Reaper in Mueller and somehow he has been granted the power to politically, economically, and personally destroy innocent people and their families to take one giant step, taking down the president, to neutralize and marginalize us deplorables. They are succeeding as indicated by the treatment of Michael Caputo and Michael Flynn. When anyone that has a desire to get involved in supporting a republican, conservative or Christian, all they have to do is view the swamp and count the corpses that have become alligator food.

    I know God intervened and saw that Trump was elected in spite of all odds. I also know He can deliver our president and country but it depends upon us "deplorables" clinging to our faith in God, praying for our leaders and country, and maybe our guns before it ends!

  • Emmitt Luttrell

    05/07/2018 03:25 PM

    I have read that Flynn agreed that he lied to save his son who was getting too close to some major pedophiles. I also think Muller is afraid if Trump stays in as President, he will be tied to Uranium One, for taking the sample to Russia and not trying to stop the sale. COME ON JUSTICE.

The certain individuals in the FBI that has sunken to the lowest levels of depravity and that has put a huge black mark on the entire organization. Then there is the Attorney General1s office. Enough said about him. All because the wanton criminal, Hillary Clinton, was not elected President. The only honest news agency is FOX news

    I believe it is time for Trump to fire Mueller because regardless of whether he does or doesnt, the media and Democrats will continue to lie, cheat, or anything else to try to take down Trump.

    It doesnt matter that there has been absolutely zero evidence of collusion between Russia and Trump campaign, Mueller and his team of liberal Trump haters continue to rape the American people as we pay for this unconstitutional witch hunt. If Mueller wants to earn his pay, he should follow the evidence produced which shows involvement by Obama, his justice department (FBI Director and Attorney General), the DNC, and the HilLIARy campaign. We the People hired the absolute best candidate for our country at this time, and we plan to re-elect him in 2020 to finish draining the swamp. God Bless President Trump and our country.

    Why won't Congress (the House) assume its constitutionally-assigned duty to protect the US Constitution & bring Mueller before it, for having overstepped his authority and gone beyond the Constitution? Are there no real leaders there of integrity & honor, to do it? Should we be encouraging our own Congressmen/women to be acting?
