Before the week is up, just about everyone will know how to pronounce the name “Peter Strzok,” because it seems that over and over, almost hour by hour, that unusual name appears in the news, with one more drip-drip of information attached to it.

Peter Strzok is the member of Robert Mueller’s independent counsel team who was taken off the “Trump/Russia” investigation because of strong anti-Trump and pro-Hillary sentiments he expressed in tweets to his mistress, also an employee at the FBI.  This happened last July but was hidden till now.  At this writing, we still don’t know what was in the tweets, but it apparently was enough to concern Mueller that his investigation might start appearing partisan (!) if he allowed Strzok to remain.  Of course, if Mueller were seriously worried about appearing partisan, he wouldn’t have stacked his investigative team with Obama/Hillary donors in the first place, so I imagine he’s still sleeping well at night.


Commentary continues below advertisement


But concerning Strzok, it gets worse:  As the #2 investigator in the counterintelligence division and a top expert on Russia, Strzok was the one who signed the document opening the investigation into Trump’s campaign.  So he was very highly placed, not just someone on the team.  (Incidentally, he was also one of the FBI officials who received the infamous and largely fictional Trump dossier, which may have served to “justify” the investigation; the FBI hasn’t confirmed or denied that.)  To have someone who was so politically anti-Trump opening the investigation into Trump...well, “unseemly” isn’t strong enough a word.

And it gets worse:  We now know that Strzok also led the investigation into Hillary’s private email server.

Still worse:  He interrogated her during her single FBI interview in July of 2016, without swearing her in and with no notes taken.  He was one of the interrogators for Michael Flynn, too, before he pleaded guilty to lying, something Hillary is guilty of many, many, many times over.  It's curious why Flynn was even interrogated, other than to try to trap him in a lie, because they already had his "intercepted" conversations with the Russan ambassador, after his name had been illegally unmasked.


Commentary continues below advertisement


Worse yet:  We’ve just learned that Strzok is the one who specifically changed the wording in the allegations about Hillary in Comey’s original draft from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.”  Never mind that handling classified material with extreme carelessness IS, legally speaking, grossly negligent; the change was obviously made to soften it for public consumption, making Hillary’s “mistakes” (mm-hmm) sound less serious to the voting public than they really were.  Kind of like turning an investigation into a “matter,” isn’t it?

So we have a pro-Hillary person, Peter Strzok, leading the FBI investigation into Hillary, and an anti-Trump person, Peter Strzok, leading the special counsel investigation into Trump.  That would explain a lot:  why Hillary could break the law and change her story countless times while Trump associates risk prison for any lapse of memory or inaccuracy, even about something that’s legal; why “no reasonable prosecutor” would indict Hillary when many would have jumped at the chance; and so much more.

Oh, and I’ve just learned how to pronounce “Strzok.”  It rhymes with “luck.”  As in, good luck for Hillary, bad luck for Trump.

    Probe the probers, end this 7M fantasy game & fire his support team, then Mueller cant Prosecute or Pardon those found guilty & see Team vanish & use Attory Weissman to prosecute Hillary after "change of heart" or remove him too.
    Pardon LT Gen Flynn.
    Pardon others & see Dems with egg on faces.
    Make them look Lame & stupid for once.

    The crooked FBI agents being allowed to do this investigation, makes me want to throw up....not to mention the money they are throwing away, when we are paying the bill for all this hooey....and I'm struggling to live on Social Security...Congressmen paying off their victims out of taxpayer funds, who made up the rules?? Oh, yeah, they did. I think any one of them caught in these activities should lose all the benefits they've received for being there...that is not why they were sent to Washington...The amount of money they throw away is mind boggling, not to mention, sinful. The FBI ought to wipe the slate clean and start over...who can trust them now?? Thank you Mike for being as incensed as we are. We appreciate the truth you report to us, more than you can know.

    In the military squadronI was a part of, had a saying about a monster we called, "Dumb A**". When a person did something really stupid, we would say that "they had gotten ate up by a Dumb A**". Which implied that they were then were excreted as waste matter, and then took on the characteristics of the monster, which explained their actions.

    I believe that the reason nothing is ever done about political wrongdoing is that nearly all of our so-called representatives are part of the swamp including most of the Republicans and probably all of the Democrats. They are not interested in making America great again or representing the people of their state. They care only about preserving their political careers, raking in money from their lobbyists who they really represent, and retiring with a big fat pension. This is why nearly everyone in Congress hates President Trump. He’s non-political and can’t be bought. We, the people, are really the only ones who can drain the swamp, and we need to demand term limits.

    Thank you, Mike H. and keep up the voice of reason and TRUTH. We have a swamp of evil that are swinging hard to defeat what is right for us to do.
    The President's bank accounts are not as important as B. Obama's college records. Where are they? They ignore that he entered Columbia as a foreign student so he could get funds. If you want to go after an evil person, go after him.
    Thanks for all you do. Keep it up.

    We all know where this will end, at least in the United States... it goes to the top, and to Obama. And when the buck stops at his desk, I guarantee you we will not be able to find him. We are just "peeling back the onion" to get there. But something that really bugs me, because to me it is the real story, is why...why are the other media NOT reporting the real story (stories)behind all of this swamp draining? These are HUGE stories, and yet, other networks have thrown integrity, and journalism to the wind. WHY? "Ideology" cannot completely explain it. That is because, networks make money off advertising, and advertisers select the media based on ratings. The network that is growing in ratings is FOX, an indication that many people are discovering the other networks "fake news" . This switch translates to a drop in ratings, thus a drop in ad dollars at these other networks that have become little more than panderers for sensationally starved viewers. . Major networks cannot survive without money, so where is their money coming from, if not their advertising? I suspect someone, or a consortium of wealthy "someones" is subsidizing these networks that have sold their soul for lies. This, to me, is the REAL story, and I have not heard this topic broached anywhere. Perhaps it is time for a reporter somewhere, to start following the money at these other networks.

    I believe the whole "Russia thing" is a witch hunt designed to bring Trump down at all costs! I also think Meuller is the "wolf in the hen house" and should be investigated for his own illegal activities! I'm glad to see we have you to try to uncover the corruption and bring truth to light, although all the treasonous activity by Hillary and Obama can be proven nothing is ever done. The law should have to apply to all not to just the Trump administration! THe corruption in government is a deep and wide swamp. God bless you and the people of our nation.

    I Just have to wonder is this maybe about one of the seven head beast the Bible is referring to ? It seems like it. I just have to say Jesus is just crying over these actions of the people he died for. It all makes me so sad that our children may have to hear learn about this someday in History. I would like to take the time to PRAY. On another positive note: THANK YOU JESUS for the action of Trump making Jerusalem a Capital City. Love it!!!!!!

    My view of all that is being said and done is in the same tone with you, Mr Huckabee and your followers. It is very obvious that our President Trump has been trapped by a lynch posse and we all know why. What I am not able to understand is why our loyal GOP and Conservatives are not willing and able to debunk the Leftist masquerade and put a soon and permanent end to it. To me it is a disgrace and shameful lack of justice on all of you who have a voice up on the Hill. Please, do not allow the evil team to crucify an true and loyal selfless citizen for lack of other's fear and courage. I am a 82 year of age woman with no means to fight this, but, if only I could fight for our President with my voice and my wits, I certainly would. Stand up America for truth and justice !!

    Governor, the swamp is deeper than even we know, faster than quick sand and I pray that God continues to bring all their evil schemes to light. Although we may never see true justice, one day Bill, Hill, Barack and many others will give account to Almighty God for their deception, greed and deviseness. In the meantime, I'll continue to pray that God give you wisdom and insight to see and state the truth of their lack of ethics and their lust to control. God is God and we are not. His will be done. May God diminish the evil that lurks within their complacency of job security. Government is to serve the people and not to be personally served, which is best served when terms are limited. Again, thank you for caring and giving your all to help us hear the truth what is happening.

    I haven't heard anyone ask about what this individual may have done regarding his position in the collusion investigation. Perhaps I'm wrong, but shouldn't everything he did during his time working the investigation be reviewed by someone other than his boss, who in my humble opinion holds the same bias towards our President. And here's the kicker, anything he may have input be considered part of a "poisoned tree" and discarded.

    How long is this going to go on? After months of trying to find something on President Trump and finding nothing. Who has the power to put a stop to it? Hillary Clinton should be in jail for all the lies and colluding she has done.
    Martha Stewart went to jail for a lot less. They (the Clinton's) seem to think they are above the law and so far it seems they are right, no one wants to do anything to them.

My real concern is that they will concoct a falsehood against President Trump which will cause a revolution in this country. We won't stand for their partisan, phoney investigations, and sacrificing Strzok to prove they are upright and honest just doesn't cut it!

Trump is also having trouble with a bunch of so called Republican politicians because they are jealous they couldn't win the election.

    HI Mike,
    Thanks so much for your newsletter. You find news stories that I would never find! The FBI has definitely lost their credibility for me. They are supposed be an honored and respected government entity, honestly investigating crime, but I'm afraid they are partisan deceivers who have a biased agenda. It's very discouraging.

    I believe in prayer. You believe in prayer. We know that the Lord worked miracles for this nation to be established as a place of freedom for oppressed people throughout the world. Where would Europe and each one of us be today if it were not for the United States of America?

    What do you think about all people of faith uniting in prayer for President Trump and for justice, according to the government established by our Constitution?

    I feel our nation is in great crisis! This decision that the Supreme Court will make this week will have huge repercussions throughout our nation. To negate the first amendment is wrong, wrong, wrong! This unrelenting pursuing of Donald Trump, while ignoring evidence of crime like Uranium One and money laundering through the Perkins law firm and Fusion, just to name two, shows evidence of a biased FBI with a pointed agenda. These people are trying to destroy the Constitution and rewrite our nation's government.

    How do you feel about leading a day of prayer for our nation? In our home we pray for our nation and our leaders. If everyone did, we will see miracles. (We already have! President's Trump visit to Utah yesterday was a miracle!) The Lord set up this nation, He will not let it fall unless we, the people, turn our backs on Him. President Obama mockingly said that people in small towns cling to their religion and their guns. I believe we know something that he doesn't. And that is that the Lord lives and He hears and answers prayers! I believe that He will intervene and save our nation if we ask!

    You are doing a great job, Mike. I appreciate your voice! Thank you!

    Merry Christmas!
    Tisha Chipman

    Candidate Trump had to be convinced to commit to the Republican party. Was there written or oral agreement? You KNOW they thought he'd lose the Primaries. Urban America loved HRC. So, apparently, does the Government. The General Election was an uphill battle against the media BUT Candidate Trump had the will of America's lifeguards behind him. Now Democrats and Republicans are blocking President Trump's progress i.e. OUR progress. Republicans are starting to retire from Government. Democrats appear to be overwhelmed. I read that Trey Gowdy's security privileges have been changed by President Trump. He's a know-it-all now, God bless us! The swamp will rock and roll in 2018.

    Seemingly Strzok has in his "work" within the FBI committed what may be interpreted as treasonous activities. He has managed to alter the course of US history & the FBI as an investigative unit which has suffered thru Hoover, Mueller & especially Comey is best disbanded, rendered extinct with perhaps a better far less political agency with not quite so far reaching powers be created.
    Congress has the power, simply defund the agency.

    I cannot believe that Sessions is keeping so quiet about all this. Don't you think an investigation into the FBI is warranted? Is he that weak or is there a reason that nothing is being done at the Justice Department? I think this whole investigation from Mueller is tainted as is the whole election on the democratic side. I wish they would leave Trump alone and let him do his job. Guess the MSM is quiet about all this, right?

  • James Johnson

    12/05/2017 02:14 PM

    I almost feel like I shouldn't leave a comment because the FBI might get hold of it and prosecute me. How can this country be in such a mess? Haven't we been born the "Land of the Great"? Were we not given a guiding Constitution to help us along the way? Are we not people of "Mostly" the same mind? Where did this Continental Divide come from?

    We used to have enough "Common" sense to know that we have differences, but after the election we have to shake hands, go back to work, raise the kids and work to make this country great. Personally, I believe there is something very sinister at the bottom of all of this trouble that is being hidden by all of the media coverage. We need to come back together as a country and start concentrating on the future and forget the election and all of the anxiety it produced. On both sides.

    All of these investigations can go both ways and President Trump should know that and use that. Investigate Mueller. Investigate Clinton again. Give "them" a barrage of investigations that will keep them busy and then he can dig in and start to get things done.

    12/05/2017 02:01 PM

    I think all of us should be deeply concerned over what appears to be an effort on the part of the "insiders" at the FBI to take down Trump. The appointment of a former head of the FBI as Special Counsel, who in turn appointed a gaggle of (so we're told) Trump haters who are allowed to scour the country for what is now called "obstruction of justice" is unacceptable. The attorney general should take hold of this situation and take whatever steps are necessary to bring this witch hunt to a conclusion. The reputation of the FBI has been forever tainted and it will take years for the skepticism surrounding the FBI to be erased from the minds of the American people.

    It might not hurt to burn DC to the ground like the Brits did once upon a time. Maybe they were on to something. Then, we should start over and place the capital in Des Moines or some other fly over location where there might be a couple of hundred honest people to run the govt. DC has in fact become a swamp and is beyond being drained. Those inhabitants have lost complete touch with honesty, integrity, common sense or any other concept of decency that is required for a Republic to survive. We now elect the most corrupt individuals to be our representatives. How can a sane person vote for Obama, Two Clintons, Pelosi, Waters, Lee, Durbin, Schumer, Feinstein, Boxer, Conyers, Franken, Bernie S, E Warren, H Reid, Flake, McCain, Corker, Ellison (sworn in on the Koran) or any of the other numbskulls inhabiting DC and expect any other o outcome? jack

    It is very apparent that, our own Government has become political and, in most cases, political for financial & power gains. Hillary Clinton should have been indicted, tried and sent to jail for committing crimes against the United States of America. If they truly investigate the corruption in DC, they will most likely find that Barrack O'Bama committed crimes as well. The liberal bias against everything good that this country stands for is sickening to most of us Americans. They have done nothing but obstruct the agenda that the American people voted for. If they impeach our President there will be civil war again in this country again!
