After two years of special counsel nonsense and the sinking feeling that justice will never prevail, we’re finally seeing some of Robert Mueller’s targets and witnesses fighting back, vigorously.  By far the most heartening of these is the President of the United States himself, who is starting to talk tough.

This travesty of “justice” has been going on for so long, with seemingly no limitations, that I know many of my readers have thrown up their hands and given up thinking there will ever be anything but a two-tiered system of justice.  “Why doesn’t the President DO something??” is the common lament.  “I have no hope that Hillary will ever pay for anything she’s done,” is another.  Some are so disgusted (or confused, or bored) that they don’t even want to think about it any more.


And that is just what the left wants to hear from Trump supporters.  They’d love to see us give up or be distracted by something else –- anything else –- and tune them out while they continue working feverishly to get Trump out of office, no matter what they have to do.  (Never mind that this would leave them with a President Pence; they hate Trump so much that I’m not sure they’ve thought that far ahead.)  Democrats in the House intend to investigate Trump’s potential business conflicts of interest, his tax returns, his family, any past dealings with Russia, and anything else he ever said or did in his entire life, if that’s what it takes.

But Trump, in an exclusive 36-minute interview on Wednesday in the Oval Office with New York Post reporters Marisa Schultz and Nikki Schwab, made it clear that he has had enough of being harassed and is ready to fight back.  In anticipation of Democrats’ taking control of the House –- and the House committees –- in January and launching one investigation after another, he warned that they would pay a heavy price for doing so.  In fact, he said that if they started harassing him, it would be the best thing that ever happened to him.


“I’m a counter-puncher and I will hit them so hard, they’d never been hit like that,” he said.


He’s armed for bear, with plenty of unredacted material that he could declassify at any time, including the FISA applications and other materials from the Mueller investigation.  He said this information would show that the FBI, the Justice Department and the Hillary Clinton campaign were working together to set him up to be investigated on allegations of “collusion” with Russia.  This is what we who’ve “connected the dots” have thought for a long time, and he says he’s got the evidence to prove it.


Of course, Democrats are still trying to use intimidation to keep him from doing this, saying that it would be obstruction of justice, but that strategy suddenly doesn’t seem to be working so well.  With witnesses such as Jerome Corsi and Paul Manafort very vocally refusing to be “flipped” by the special counsel if it means lying –-- even if they have to spend the rest of their lives in prison –- there’s a change in the air.  More people are seeing how Democrats will try to RUIN anyone whose destruction is useful to them; I think they started paying more attention to this after the inexcusable tactics used during Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation process.  They don’t want to see an America in which anyone standing in the way of what one side wants is viewed as collateral damage.


For a time, Trump’s opposition was able to skew things so thoroughly that he couldn’t bring honesty and transparency to the table without being accused of OBSTRUCTING justice.  In an odd twist, it seemed his hands were tied.  He couldn’t even fire people who badly needed firing and whom he had the constitutional authority to fire.  His lawyers surely had advised him to do nothing and let the process play out.


But I’m sensing maybe that has changed, too.


“I think that would help my campaign,” Trump said of Democrats’ plans to harass him.  “If they want to play tough, I will do it.  They will see how devastating those pages are.” 


Trump was called on in September by his allies in the House to declassify numerous DOJ documents, such as the FISA warrant application and renewals to spy on Carter Page (their gateway into the whole Trump campaign) and memos concerning Bruce Ohr’s interactions with “dossier” creator Christopher Steele.  There are also the unredacted emails and texts from former FBI officials James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.  Trump initially said he’d declassify them, and then...he didn’t, citing concern by U.S. allies (assumed to be mostly Great Britain and Australia, home to some of the key characters in this charade).  But now it seems he considers these documents to be part of his arsenal against the Democrats.

During the interview, he said his lawyer Emmet Flood had advised him that it would be best, from a political standpoint, to hold on to the material for now.  He added that “if we had done it already, it would already be yesterday’s news.”  So It seems he plans to save the big unveiling for just the right moment.  I can see how that might be kind of fun.


It’s frustrating, though, to us onlookers, who would prefer to see the special counsel shut down NOW and who want more than anything to see some real justice done.  The country has important issues to deal with, and this is one crack-up we need to be looking at in our rear-view mirror.  If Trump has evidence that could lead to Hillary being perp-walked to Cell Block A, he should declassify it without delay.  If he can show us everything the FBI was doing back in 2016 to let her off the hook, it’s time to expose that scheme.  And if Trump has evidence to show the DOJ and FBI “colluded” in an attempt to defeat and/or depose him, it should be made public, no matter how high the plot goes (and I suspect this is a plot that goes EXTREMELY high, if you know what I mean).


Are we going to have to wait for it to appear as the “October surprise” in 2020?


And what if Trump’s threat is enough, and the Democrats back off without his having to release all that devastating material?  He addressed that question in the interview, and after hearing his answer, I hope he’ll change his mind, because he said that maybe we shouldn’t ever see it.  “Some things maybe the public shouldn’t see because they are so bad,” he said.  “Maybe it’s better that the public not see what’s been going on with this country.”


Of course, Trump changes his mind all the time, and in this case, he definitely should.  True, he's seen what’s in those documents and for that reason perhaps is in a better position to say, but I still think we as Americans deserve to know every last bit of “what’s been going on with this country,” no matter what it is or who is implicated.  Make that sooner rather than later.

    Governor, you're a breath of fresh air on the political scene....and on the spiritual scene as well.
    We need you back in public life (if you can afford the drop in income, I guess) at whatever level
    you select. I feel certain that Mr. Trump could find just the right slot for your honest Christian
    outlook of how our world needs to confront all of the evil now extant.....and sadly way too often
    in our own formerly Judeo-Christian ethically-based country.

    I hope at some point we as americans can see justice for the common citizens as it would be for us. If any one of them is convicted we should take back all tax payer funds and perks.

    Hillary said if she goes down she's taking a lot of people with her and I believe what she is saying is true. There has been too many people gotten involved with her dirty deals for the money and now she is black mailing them. I would put Jeff Sessions and James Comey, at the head of her list.

    I am a forever President Trump voter in 2020 and after if he would be allowed a third term which I, myself, think should happen. It is deplorable what the Demorats and Leftists, LGBT, and others are doing to him. He is the best President we have had in many years and he is treated like crap by the media too. Even with all that against him he loves America and we, the people, and he shows that everyday in every way. No one ever praises him for all that he has accomplished in such a short time while being poked and gouged by the haters. It's disgraceful.

    Gov. Huckabee, please convene our President to Declassify all documents, we deserve to know the truth behind our government. Also, to show the people that the committee's that have worked so hard to expose the truth are vindicate and to show what party was telling the truth.
    God Bless you for your continued support of our President.

    Respectfully, Pres. Trump needs to release all of these documents. Clearly this whole debacle has touched him and his family every day for the past, what, 3 years? But it has also touched every American for the same time. I believe we must see for ourselves just what has happened. I fear that there are still too many in this country who watch no news or only the CNN variety, therefore they would never know, or even care to know, the real truth. If the truth does not come out, how will “history” remain the great educator?There will never be any real closure until the truth prevails and the really bad guys get their just rewards.

    Thank you so much for writing this article. I hope the President releases this information when it is strategically right. The Democrats need to be exposed!

    I get lost in all the news and the names on the news. But one thing I do know is fish is frying somewhere. I have to just Trump to hold his card in his sleeve till it's he thinks it's time to play it. I, like everybody else want it to all end and find out all the dirty secrets but the President is a smart man and has known for a long time what's been going on.
    Another thing I've been angry about for a long time and it has nothing to do with the Russian stuff , it's old news. When Bergdol was traded for the 4 terrorist why had Obama made a "surprise visit" to the troops in Afganistan the week before? And why wasn't there any coverage on the news about it? It won't leave me alone even after so much time and everything Obama's done since then.

    Isaiah 40:31 has been my favorite verse since I was a young girl. Sometimes the wait is difficult and we do not understand why it takes so long to get an answer to a prayer. Born again believers have been praying for this country a long time and God saw fit to put Trump in as our President in answer to those prayers. Personally I wanted justice when he first took office and have been frustrated because nothing has happened. But I still believe that God has a purpose and a plan and because His timing is perfect justice will come at His appointed time. I continue to pray for Trump, his family and his administration and for God to reveal, expose and flush out all those in our government who are a part of the deep state.

    We The People elected President Trump to be Honest, to clean house to give the Country back to The People not to engage in becoming a politician. SHOW We The People the Truth. Do Not become them.

    I'm with you. President Trump needs to bring the entire corrupt Obama and Clinton crime spree to a halt. They should ALL be in Gitmo with Soros!

    I like many others who are Christians am so utterly thankful for you Mr. Huckabee and President Trump! I actually feel hopeful now about the future of our great nation! God is working through all of you for what I believe to be a cleansing of the corruption in our government! We need God back in leadership before it's too late! Many Christians are praying for this great day! I believe it will be done and Thank you for your integrity in keeping us all informed! And tell your daughter she's a wonderful example of what a strong, honest woman should be! God Bless

    If President Trump says the people should not see what he has then that is the exact reason WHY we should see it. We the people are the government and the ultimate end for any decision. Keep security secret, ok, keep military action secret, ok, but to keep criminal activity secret, No! So spill it President Trump, let we the people decide, most of us can handle it.

    I too believe we the people should know the whole truth regardless if how bad it is! Our goverment is supposed to be of the people for the people!


    11/30/2018 12:22 PM

    Governor Huckabee, considering the position of the far left democrats and the deep state, it is necessary to declassify these emails, documents, inter-office notes between top agents of the FBI, CIA and DHS and any other office that holds Deep State agents, and yes even the Obama's Executive correspondence about these matters. I assume the President can demand these things. We have to get the Deep State trash out for everyone to see or this country is going to a disgusting end that neither I nor you want to see. I see this as part of the President's swarn duties to protect this nation. Mueller was appointed by these Deep State agents to disrupt the Executive Branch and find anything, true or forced false, it discredit Trump, his family and confidants. AND PLEASE FIRE THESE OBAMA TRAITOR IMPLANTS IN GOVERNMENT AGENCIES.
