August 23, 2018

One very common question sent to me by readers is this:  “WHY hasn’t President Trump fired the whole bunch –- Sessions, Rosenstein and Mueller???”  (I’m including plenty of punctuation because those comments typically have that.)  And yes, readers, you are right about about all those people needing to go.  Sessions, by recusing himself from anything “Russia” --- and, it seems, just about everything else in his job description --- has rendered himself worthless in his position as attorney general.  Rosenstein has apparently given Mueller unlimited power to investigate anyone for anything using any tactics.  He actually signed off on the last renewal of the warrant application that misled the FISA judges who granted permission for the FBI to spy on Trump associates.  And he’s in the untenable position of being a potential witness in a case that he himself is supervising.  As for Mueller, he’s obviously on a highly partisan fishing expedition that will destroy as many lives as necessary to catch the big fish.

There are two ways Mueller, with no evidence of crimes, can still land his fish.  One way is through the courts –- even going after people for activities that AREN’T CRIMES –- to be followed by the report he’ll write to offer some pretense for impeachment.  The other way hasn’t been talked about much but needs to be, and that’s for Mueller to use himself as bait.  Let me explain...

I had a slap-to-the-forehead moment after seeing a headline on The Drudge Report that said, “Dems worried Mueller getting fired” and going to the story.  The link took me to the NBC News website and a story called “In Case Of Mueller Firing, Break Glass:  Democrats prep an emergency plan.”  But this story isn’t about Democrats being worried that Trump will fire Mueller.  On the contrary, I got the impression that the Democrats are hoping and praying (the ones who pray) that Trump will fire Mueller, or Rosenstein, or pardon key witnesses.  In fact, they’ve worked up a detailed plan ready to go the minute he does it.

The authors of the piece interviewed nearly a dozen lawmakers, congressional aides, Democratic operatives and attorneys who were involved in the planning.  The first step, to be accomplished immediately, would be to prevent any special counsel documents from being destroyed or the team disbanded.  Senate Democrats would immediately demand a floor bill to protect Mueller and his materials.  Rank-and-file Democrats in both the House and Senate would immediately contact everyone on a list they’ve already put together of Republicans they consider to be sympathetic, some of whom, according to this article, have said privately they would act if Trump interfered in the investigation. has already organized and is ready to mobilize 933 rallies in predetermined locations, from big cities like Los Angeles to smaller towns like Bismark, North Dakota.  They’ve even got sponsors!  More than 350,000 people have already RSVP’d to attend.  They’ve planned this down to the hour; if Mueller is fired by 2PM on a given day, the rallies will take place at 5PM the same day.

Commentary continues below advertisement

Democrats are hoping that Republicans will be caught up in the protest and see that Mueller’s firing is so egregious that they’ll go along.  (Um, this is where they’re wrong.  Millions of Americans would cheer if Trump started firing these people, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t cause huge problems for this White House.)

Documents have been drawn up for every contingency the Democrats could think of, including Trump's pardoning of Manafort and/or Cohen and the possibility of a Nixon-style “Saturday Night Massacre.”

Trump’s decision to revoke ex-CIA Director John Brennan’s top-secret security clearance has apparently signaled to Democrats that they can’t predict what he might do and so must be ready for anything at a moment’s notice.

If Trump fires Mueller or Rosenstein, the Democrats will take to the floor of both Senate and House and demand obstruction of justice hearings and a special Senate committee, similar to the Senate Watergate Committee, to pick up where Mueller left off.  Democratic groups are prepared to demand that the Senate shut down until there’s a resolution.  Some will call for impeachment proceedings.

Letters have already been drafted from House Democratic leaders demanding hearings (Mueller would be called to testify right away), IG investigations, and information from White House counsel Don McGahn and the DOJ about any communications they’d had with the President before the firing.  Demands and more demands, all ready to go.

This has all been in the works for more than a year.  A “Friday group” of Democrats meets weekly to discuss the “Russia” investigation and keep the impeachment dream alive, and another weekly meeting includes groups such as MoveOn, Public Citizen, Indivisible, Common Cause, and People For The American Way.  “Different Democrats have laid out different red lines for what actions by Trump would trigger a full-blown crisis response,” the article states.

OUR TOP STORY: Manafort and Cohen: what does it mean?

The Democrats obviously don’t care if they wreck America to bring down Trump.  It’s for love of country that Trump must not fire Mueller, Rosenstein or Sessions, no matter how much they deserve to go.  I’m reminded of a recent tweet from sleazy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti (who’s probably getting money from some of these same groups):  “We. Are. Coming.  We are going to end this dumpster fire of a presidency one way or another.”  It’s their plan that sounds like the real dumpster fire, and potentially much worse.

    The media and Hilary were so confidant that would win the election, they just can not accept defeat. Shame on them.
    I do hope christians will continue to pray for our country and our president daily as one comment said "we have something they do not have."

    Mike...My question is...what can those of us who support the president do to stop this insanity? 63 million Americans (hopefully legal US Citizens who were registered to vote) voted for Trump to save this country from these criminal left Democrats, resistors, RINOS. The man was legally elected as the President of the United States. What do we do when the FBI and the US Justice Department is corrupt and trying to investigate and prosecute a crime that doesn't exist? Something must be done before these horribly selfish people destroy this country! The only thing I know for sure is that GOD is in charge and his will...will be done in the end. But it is extremely frustrating in the interim. Any suggestions?

    Is there something about a last name starting with "M"? ie Mueller, McCarthy, McCain. How did the witch hunt end then? Let's stop it now.

    It is so heartening to read the comments and to realize that there are still many real Americans who love our country and have the same thoughts as me. I often send in a comment and then read comments from others that echo mine almost to the letter. Gives me some hope, but I'm afraid the idiots are multiplying with the aid of our education system and media. jack

    Mike, I am so upset by what the Dems/Liberals are doing and have done. I can hardly be around some of my friends that i know are Dems. All this mess has effected friendships. Disappointed in FOX News too. Can't stand Shepherd S. and Juan. Trump's no angel. He likes sex but what he did before he became president has nothing to do with what he is doing for this country. We are in better shape since Ronald R. Please please tell me how to contact the FOX news commentators. I don't do Twitter and I can't seem to get emails through. Robin Lightner PF: Sarah is great!!

    Nice detailed research and article. However, unless or until President Trump actually fires the Witch Hunter Brigade the democrat plans are just that, plans. Trump is smarter than Sessions, Mueller, Rosenstein, the MSM (low bar) and the democrat hater groups (even lower bar). I believe Trumps innocent and is smart enough to allow the Witch Hunt continue to make themselves look more foolish with their complete lack of results. At some point I also believe Mueller will have to give up.

    This is a strong reminder of how fragile Freedom is. I pray for great wisdom for our President and members of congress who work in such a hostile environment. I pray that we as citizens will have the fear of God in our hearts to be humble, truthful, just, and merciful. We cannot expect our leaders to act on a higher standard than we are willing to live. May God help us all to be the kind of citizens who can continue to effect change by electing worthy leaders. May we never forget that we are "One nation under God", and continually seek to honor His holy standards so that He is inclined to continue His blessings upon our nation.

    You know the US has been spending billions every year on black budget items, and some of the sightings that have been seen indicate we have awesome weapons ready to go. Particle weapons, lasers, rail guns, atomic powered vehicles that create plasmas that somehow counteract gravity. Extremely accurate orbital rail guns that can pinpoint and place on earth with inactive kinetic ‘telephone poles’ warheads whose energy is already imparted by consequence of its elevation. When it hits earth it will be traveling at enormous speed, capable of taking out cities.

    Hypersonic aircraft that turn on a dime. ‘Swarms’ of tiny drones that overwhelm an enemy in numbers. And our stuff works. Also one wonders if our ability to neutralize a full throated ICBM attack isn’t already in place? It seems likely the new Trump Space Defense Agency was a not-so-veiled communication to The Chinese and Russians we have been busy all these years. And we have outspent everyone combined for years.

    THE QUESTION: Given the tension and ongoing negotiations with PRNK and Iran, China, Iran if you were Trump would you be willing to expose at least partially these marvels to them to demonstrate the futility of conflict or is it still better to maintain what must be a scary uncertainty for our ‘enemies’? No one wants war. Remember the premise of Strangelove. Why have a doomsday device if you don’t tell anyone about it? My guess is that Trump, the master negotiator, is going to be scaring the pants off these guys and probably pretty soon, as the Chinese are pissed about trade policy and are dragging their heels with lil’ Kim.

    I feel like I live in a third world country, where it is acceptable to try and overthrow a president you do not like! I was not a fan of President Trump, but I voted for him, because the alternative was unacceptable. He is doing a great job as President! I am 67 years old, and throughout every administration in my lifetime, I have never heard a President be subjected to such threats, name-calling, and truly despicable acts to try to bring him down! Every true American, no matter the party, should stand firmly against this kind of behavior. It will set a precedent for years to come, where violent protests and acts against the party in power, are the accepted behavior! Be Warned!

    Thanks for the explanation of why President Trump won't fire those traitors. Declassifying the FBI documents would not cause the same uproar, would it? He would be opening up the truth for everyone to see. They certainly can't say he's hiding something then. Christians, if we pray diligently God will save us from Satan's plan to destroy us. I'm not kidding, that's exactly what's happening here.

    Are the democrats not concerned at all that if they impeach Trump, they will then have to deal with Mike Pence. Trump is more middle of the road then Mike Pence. I like both of them and have been extremely impressed with what the president has achieved so far, especially with all of the roadblocks put in his way by both sides of the aisle ( It concerns me when people in his own party try to stop him,makes them seem just a little shady)
    Mike do you think that we will ever be able to get term limits or age limits put into place so that someone who is on the high side of their 70's or 80 will need to step down?

    I have "game theoried" this scenario to death and the best thing Trump can do is ride out the storm and play defense. Dems and Media are swinging wildly and they will punch themselves out. Their only hope is to provoke Trump into doing something impeachable. He should have fired that lying snake Comey on day 1 but that ship has sailed. The longer these partisan attacks continue, the higher Trump's numbers will go, as long as the economy stays strong he's golden.

    I think you are absolutely correct and it makes me sick. I hope that if this happens, the conservatives rise up, stand together and protect our country. We saw it happen at the election and it can certainly happen again. I pray every day that God keeps his hand on our President and protects him with a shield that cannot be breached. This is a fight of good versus evil and I hope that every conservative remembers that we have one weapon at our disposal that the majority of liberals do not believe in - prayer. With that, anything is possible.

    SOOoooo scary. Many of us saw the handwriting on the wall the day after the election. As distasteful as Trump was to me, I disliked and distrusted Hillary Clinton more. Are we witnessing what I call "Hillary's Retribution" play out in her "entitled" supporters? Pray constantly for America.

    I believe you are spot on. The dems have been forming think tanks for decades for all the contingencies that could arise as a result of their global totalitarian agenda. This world has become a scary place for God's people. Praying all the time.

    Governor Mike,
    I'm partially disabled and my wife and I are too old to "take to the streets" if all of this comes down. Right now, I feel the frustration for something that is happening and if all their plans pan out and Trump is removed, America we love is GONE.
    Also, it is apparent to me that Muslims are definitely becoming more active in their Jihad in USA.
    America is strong and I feel GOD is watching. Our Society is doing abominable things, i.e. aborting babies, Gay Pride, turning from God, hating on a level I've never seen before and lots more ungodly things.
    Your Newsletters are the most informative of all. God bless you and Sarah. Julie and Roger, we're praying for a miracle from God.

I'm frankly sick of having to take up for POTUS daily but then I remember he never seems to tire fighting for us..So I remain stead fast and loyal Trump Supporter and Pray daily for him and our country.... I want the Muller probe over but for political issues I leave to POTUS for other things I can not change I give to God.... God Bless you and yours ...Suzi

    Mr. Huckabee, I was raised in the Nazarene Church. I assume you are familiar? We were taught that adultery and lying were absolutely wrong. A forgivable sin - but none the less, wrong. My sincere question to you is this: How can you support Trump when he lies daily and treats women (and wives) with such disrespect? How can you defend his actions? Every time I see your daughter, struggling at the press conferences, I can tell she is really not comfortable with the lies she's been told to repeat to the press corp. That is because she was brought up like I was, in a Christian home where we honored the ten commandments and the Beatitudes. Do you not feel the pain your daughter is feeling, having to lie for the world to see? She's a smart, young woman and does not need that job as there would be many other jobs available for her. How can you let trump and his group disrespect your daughter? These questions are not to be argumentative or mean, I am asking because you do profess to be a born again Christian and I am sincerely curious about your support for trump. Thank you in advance for any insight you can give me in a response.
