The House Republicans who until now headed committees whose investigations are now shut down will “not go gentle into that good night.”

Democrats made it clear well before Nancy Pelosi clutched the gavel that they would be terminating all non-Trump-related investigations, saying their only purpose was to deflect attention from the Mueller probe.  (Have you noticed that EVERY perfectly legitimate attempt to look into what Democrats have done is called “an attempt to deflect attention from the Mueller probe”?  That phrase must have tested off-the-chart in Democrat focus groups.)  Knowing this would happen, outgoing Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina released a seven-page letter disclosing their findings regarding the “investigation” (ha) into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified material.


The letter summarizes their findings and calls for a special counsel to look into decisions made in the Clinton investigation and the “Trump/Russia” probe, particularly the “disparate way these two investigations were seemingly conducted.”  (“Seemingly”??  I guess that word is obligatory, like the word “alleged” to describe a deed we know happened but that the jury technically is still deliberating.)  Addressed to acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, it contains “significant new details,” which, according to FOX News’ Catherine Herridge, do not cast former FBI Director James Comey in a good light.

Recall that it’s Comey, by overstepping his authority at the FBI and announcing that “no reasonable prosecutor” would take the Hillary case, who preserved her 2016 presidential candidacy.  Comey told reporters on two separate occasions that the decision not to pursue her case was “unanimous,” but this letter shows that House investigators found evidence to the contrary.  According to then-FBI General Counsel James Baker (meaning their top lawyer) and multiple other witnesses, they had the evidence needed to go forward and were not unanimous in their decision to drop it.

Who are you gonna believe –- multiple witnesses at the FBI who were concerned about the way Hillary’s case was being handled, or James Comey?

Oh, and were you aware that one of the three attorneys advising him during his House testimony, Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman, is the very person Comey has testified he supplied with notes from his conversation with President Trump (DOJ property, and arguably classified) to get the ball rolling on a special counsel?  And now Richman and Comey enjoy attorney-client privilege.  (What is this person doing as Comey’s attorney?  It’s as crazy as Cheryl Mills acting as both Hillary’s attorney and a potential witness in her case.  Or Rod Rosenstein supervising Robert Mueller when he was a potential witness in the “Trump/Russia” case.  Oh, wait, those things happened, too.)

Speaking of Rosenstein, the House letter also includes references to witness testimony regarding his comments about wearing a wire to record the president and possibly invoking the 25th Amendment to unseat him.  The committees tried for many months to get Rosenstein to testify, but he managed to run out the clock.  “The questions deserve to be asked,” the letter reads, “and the DAG deserves his chance to respond.”

But Lindsay Graham now heads the Senate Judiciary Committee, so we can be sure he’s on it.  Good thing, too, because unless a special counsel is appointed, it’s up to the Senate now to get to the truth.

    I am curious to know why alot of these people have not been brought up on "Treason" charges. The Democratic Senator Menendez who publicly told the people of the United States yesterday " NOT" to believe anything our President says. Or The Muslim lady who curse him(unprofessionally) I might add. Or the, actors and politicians whom have all made references to assassination attempts on our Presidents life!!! Pelosi & Schumer who have made many references against our President to persuade the people from listening to or supporting President Trump would that not be considered Treason?

    I pray for our President, our Country, Gods Will daily! I know that the Holy Spirit is with our President. I know God is working in the spirit realm on our behalf. I walk by faith and not by sight! Thank you for sharing with us. We will continue to keep all of you lifted up in prayer. Let your beautiful daughter know that God is very pleased with her. Thank you for your time. They may think they have the last word but My Jesus still sits on the Throne!

    Mike, you are going to kill your golden goose with all the advertisements and feel goody snippets—and Dick ..the same ‘sell to the highest bidder’ Morris who spun lies so thick for Bill Clinton that spiders couldn’t get in or out of D.C.? What are you drinking?!

    I am glad to see this reach a point were everything against them and a chance for the rule of law (hopefully) to proceed. Hillary and her support team have been untouchable for too long.

    You'd think that after all this time of the Mueller investigation not turning up anything, the Democrats would realize that there's nothing to investigate--except they already know that. The purpose of the Mueller investigation is to convince as many voters as possible that President Trump 'colluded' with the Russians, and to keep everyone busy so they don't have time to investigate the true villains. They'll drag this out until the 2020 elections.

    I hate losing Gowdy, esp. because I'm from SC, and he represented us well ..but we can understand his wanting out of the cesspool in Congress, and get back to life. I hope and pray someone can take the ball and run with it, but I'll have to see it to believe it....So think back to Hillary on the debate stage assuring America she would accept the results of the election, then, fast forward to Trump's Inauguration, when the Dems refused to attend. That was a cheap rejection of his position, and Hillary's unbelievable defeat (to her). She is behind this hate Trump attitude... I do, however, think Trump is putting himself in jeopardy with this shutdown. The Dems are not going to capitulate, and anyone out there who can't live without a paycheck, is not going to be wearing their MAGA hats for long. They're looking for any reason to impeach, and he must be careful not to give them one, plus hold on to his base. We have a very bad group in the House, now, he's got to outsmart them to win this battle. I hope he can. Love you and Sarah for all you do. Thank you.

    Hi Mike,
    I've always liked Trey Gowdy and I guess I still do BUT....

    He supported Mueller (possibly still does). He supported Comey (for awhile).

    What was that about? Lawyers sticking together? Not too smart in my opinion. Bark worse than his bite?

    I had high hopes for Trey but I'm disappointed. Particularly on Barry, Hil and Benghazi and on the emails. They need to be in prison for Treason to erase the shame on our nation and others with them. I hope Trump will not let us and the nation down.

    Sotero was raised in an Islamic nation and there are 57 Member nations in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation founded in 1969. That is what is embedded in his brain whereas an American brain is embedded with 50 States in the USA - Hawaii being No. 50. Barry is NOT a US citizen. Therefore logic and common sense will tell you that we did not have a 44th President - eight years of Treason is what we had.

    Remember his infamous comment during campaign about visiting "57 states"?

    Warm regards,
    Rose Howell

    Well, the clock just keeps running out and nothing will ever happen. I am so tired of the Dog, and Pony show, do you really think anything will ever come to fruition with these people or will this go down as the most inept investigation of known felonies to ever become just an Oh well we tried???

    I served 12 years in the Navy. Not to have a group of politicians above the law. Nor to have another group of politicians, supposedly from opposing sides look like incompetent buffoons in trying to find out the truth. I know this is not what the founding fathers had in mind when they established 'checks and balances'. It is beyond belief that our 'justice' system is that malevolent. Someone has to grow a pair and put some people in prison. Otherwise 2019/2020 is going to be a very sad day for the former republic and current third world banana republic. It just makes me sick to my very core to think I would have sacrificed my life for this shit.

    Good, yes, but why hasn't anything been done???? My only hope is Lindsey Graham. I am scared of what might happen in the next two years. I can't believe what I have heard and read in the last couple of days with the Democrats taking over the House. God Bless our President and his family. He is the best thing that ever happened in DC.

    To much corruption , For Hillary to be brought to justice. List to long.
    An investigation I would like is when and how did Congress get 100% salary retirement pay when they leave office. Regardless of age???
    Does not the constitution say All Laws passed by congress will be subject to all citizens including congress members?
    When was this hanged??!

    Mr. Huckabee I'm still trying to understand how it came to be that after Loretta Lynch recuse herself was it proper for Comey who is in the investigative arm of Justice to be the one to determined not to bring charges against mrs. Clinton should that not have fallen to the second-in-charge under Lynch would have I believed at the time Been Abrams who was eventually fired and who may or may not have brought charges but should that not have been the person to make that determination? In any case that should not have been comey's purvey to make that determination. and if that is the case then that means that no determination was lawfully made and Justice could still go back and look at that again. What say you sir?

    It’s hard to understand how the Republicans allowed the investigation to slip away while they were on the majority. Incompetence or part of the “deep swamp”?
    Clinton & co. escape again, murder inc. get away again.
    I have 0 hope the Republicans will ever succeed in bring to light the sins of Clinton, Comey, Rosenstein, et. al.
    Disappointed to saw the least.

    Laughable is the timing of the release of the "investigative" conclusions from Gowdy and Goodlatte. They would not go quietly into the night? No, they simply went into irrelevance. For over two years now, just about every person in America knew of the Clinton Uranium One "deal." Everyone knew of the 30,000 plus e-mails on her personal server that went missing. The smashed cell phones, the "bleached" hard drives. Everyone knew of the tarmac meeting between Lynch and Bill Clinton. Everyone knew Comey and his Gestapo cronies had colluded with the Clintons and the DNC to shut down Trump. Even a common moron could see what was happening here. The evidence was that blatant. However, the constant "hearings" and "evidence" gathering went on without conclusion, indictments or arrests. Millions of dollars spent. Hundreds of hours of testimony given. What did the American people get from all of this? Nothing. Nor will we. Let's put it all on the table! IF this "investigation" had yielded even one indictment, the repercussions would have been so massive, that over half our elected officials in Washington would have been arrested and been bought to justice. Not to mention the entire top echelon of the DNC and quite possibly, those at the top of the GOP and many elected Republicans. Our nation's political system has become so corrupt, that the corruption is now accepted as being "normal." We actually shrug our shoulders when we hear of the rare "indictment' for fraud and abuse of office. We turn our heads when a $170,000 a year "freshman" politician, who may have just been elected to office, leaves office with a net worth in the tens of Millions of dollars. Not many American Citizens even question how that could be possible. In the second paragraph in the Declaration of Independence, reads the following: And accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while the evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they have become accustomed. At this point in our nation's history? With regard to the CORRUPT GOVERNMENT we have allowed to fester? We are doing just that.

    Hi Mike: I'm so glad you can keep us Christian Conservative's informed. I listen to you and Fox News for the Truth about whats going on. I think your Spot On. Most of us just want the truth then we can be done with this whole thing...right. I want the Wall and so do my Friends, even my Hispanic Friends. We all want to be safe. I live in Clovis California and I know all to well how the Liberal Democrats have made such a mess of our beautiful State. Heaven help us for the next 4 years. Thank you Mike... Kathy Hunt.

    Look at past history. Dems make a lot of threats and noise and we conservatives always back down and crawl to our corner. Baffles me why we do this. I have always fought for what I believed in and I won’t start a fight but will darn well finish it. The time is now to start fighting back. Civil war is coming and it will make the last one look like a picnic which is why my sister and I are leaving California as soon as possible.

    Once again Republicans fail to get anything done while controlling both houses. Maybe no one in either house really wants to change anything and are using smoke a mirrors to stir up and distract the general public. Brings to mind teats on a boar hog. Remove them all.
