The scandal runs as deep as in 1972 (UPDATED)

February 23, 2018 |

ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN was on Turner Classic Movies a few days ago, and just thinking about that film brings back all the intrigue of the Watergate scandal.

Secret surveillance of political enemies. Corruption high up within the Justice Department. Rank-and-file government employees hesitant to talk. Young reporters making names for themselves by holding onto their story like a dog with a bone.

It all took place in 1972-73, but in some ways it sounds very much like what we’re seeing in 2018. It wouldn’t surprise me if Sara A. Carter had her own version of “Deep Throat” --- call him DeepThroat 2.0 --- providing clues in a deserted parking garage. That’s how dark and undercover it all seems.

The latest development concerns an associate of John McCain’s, a former State Department official named David Kramer, who, according to court documents, traveled to London in 2016 to meet with Christopher Steele at McCain’s request and view “the pre-election memoranda on a confidential basis.” He came back to the United States and passed copies of the now-infamous “dossier” –- prepared for “opposition research” firm Fusion GPS and paid for by the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign –- to McCain, and later to James Comey at the FBI, who used it as the basis for FISA applications. After all that jetting around, it turns out that Steele had already given copies to the FBI, in installments starting in July 2016 (note the timing). It seems to have been very important to these people to pass this collection of unverified allegations, largely viewed today as a work of highly imaginative fiction, to the FBI, even to the point of duplicating their efforts.

Devin Nunes wanted Kramer to testify before the House Intelligence Committee as far back as last December. Reportedly, Kramer said in an interview last month that he had information regarding the Russian sources for Steele’s dossier but wouldn’t go into detail. And he doesn’t plan to, either; we’ve just learned that since receiving a subpoena from Nunes, he has invoked the Fifth Amendment to avoid having to testify. Perhaps it’s because the so-called sources don't really exist. (Sara Carter also speculates that he doesn’t want to answer any questions about leaking the dossier to Buzzfeed.)

Kramer is the current senior director of the nonprofit McCain institute.

It’s becoming clearer every day how the FBI got its FISA warrants to spy on and unmask Trump associates, try to damage Trump politically, and after his stunning election find something with which to take him down. As we confirm more and more of what we’ve suspected, it’s almost inconceivable that strings weren’t being pulled from the very top. In that respect, it’s looking more and more like Watergate, but utilizing the most modern surveillance technology that makes a simple “break-in” seem primitive by comparison.


Commentary continues below advertisement


Of course, the thing that made Watergate such a scandal was that the break-in was just the tip of the iceberg. The “deep state” had been operating under its own rules for some time. Remember what “Deep Throat” (Hal Holbrook) finally tells Bob Woodward (Robert Redford), making it clear that it had to be the work of many people inside the government: “They bugged offices, they followed people, planted false press leaks, passed fake letters...investigated private lives, they planted spies, they stole documents...”

Reading that quote (I looked it up), it’s hard to know whether the speaker is talking about 1972 or 2018. But thanks to a few intrepid reporters, lawyers and judges who refuse to be deterred, and perhaps also to an Inspector General who’ll be releasing a report soon, we’ll eventually get to the bottom of it once again.

PLEASE LEAVE ME A COMMENT BELOW. I READ THEM.

UPDATE:  

Thanks for writing Robert Henderson! A master at obtaining political power by-hook-or-by-crook, LBJ must certainly have used every tactic available to him in his day. Indeed, "Deep Throat" made it clear that the corruption had been long-standing, so I assume he was saying it predated Nixon. The reason Nixon is used as the example here is that we happen to be talking about Watergate, and there were definitely some bad actors who compare to Comey, Lynch and the rest.

A few key differences, though: the corruption in 2018 relates to an administration that is now out of power (at least at the very top) and a Presidential candidate who did not (thank God!!) get into office. Also, something from 1972 that seems strange today --- newspapers that hesitated to run a negative story on Republicans. How quaint!

    I also watched that movie, and was also struck by the similarities and the deeply rooted corruption of Washington. It is a shame that the Washington Post no longer seems to have reporters capable of logical thought and investigative reporting independent of the war against Trump. Or perhaps, the prevailing atmosphere is so strong now that the editors won't budge no matter what evidence is placed on their desks. It is a shame. I understand also that the laws against media monopoly put into place by Reagan have been removed, putting small independent newspapers in jeopardy of being absorbed by the media giants. That would be absolutely the end of honest journalism, IMHO.

    Thank you Governor Huckabee for your honest information. I love reading your articles. It so good to finally get the truth out about the "swamp" in Washington DC . They all need to go. I think this whole mess started with Obama and his cronies. I pray for President Trump and his commitment to the American people. PS: You were my nominee for President but things happen for a reason. God bless you and your family! Love your daughter Sarah.....awesome press secretary!

    Thank you Gov. Huckabee for your honesty and integrity, I know that I can believe you (which is not true for most people). What I cannot understand is that NO ONE ever gets punished for their wrongdoings nowadays . At least in 1972 people were held accountable for their actions. In the present, it is brought to light, lots of people are talking about how awful it was but Congress nor the DOJ pursues it. Keep up the good work of making sure we are informed.

    Dear Mr. Huckabee,
    Indeed, when looking back to the administration of LBJ , you find already corruption and 'leaks' to the Press.It gets worse, after one year in Nixon's administration, in 1971, when Nixon gets desperate of all the leaks and starts his famous "Plumbers' which became overzealous and in the end the downfall of Nixon.I would strongly recommend to you and all of your readers to read Conrad Black's book:"NIXON"
    Excellent book ,also for the many similarities in " Deep Throat" and " Swamp" and whatever government corruption we witness...The advantage Mr.Trump has over Nixon, is the fact that he is financially independent.

    You may want to copy and keep this. Chandler was getting gov. help after he is out of school, but the condition after this year will be that he gets the chip implanted in him! We are not accepting the "help!" Without the chip they refuse to help him! Pack your suitcase! We are going home!

    NO CHIP FOR ME ---- I WANT TO BE FREE !

    Did you know that Big Brother wants to put a universal ID micro-chip inside of you ?
    Your unique personal identification number will make available to the System any database with your number and as such will reveal your medical history, driving history, legal profile, your social security number, credit rating, and your up-to-the minute-banking transactions...and anything else that the System wants to know about your personal life. It will keep track of you instantaneously, and keep all this data in a global database center.
    Do you think it is right to make your personal information available to others ?

    Information is power. The more information the System has on you, the more power they have over you.
    The business world will use this information about you to manipulate your choices. They may use this to exclude you from health plans, and from other life-options, that we have always taken for granted. The more power the System has, the more CONTROL they have over you.

    Do you want to be controlled, manipulated and dominated ? Of course not.
    Did our forefathers and all our soldiers die in vain, so that we would someday give away our liberty ? No.
    Just say "NO" to the implanted micro-chip that is being marketed as an advantage.
    It is not an advantage. It is a terrible disadvantage.
    Privacy is something to be cherished. You are a unique individual. You are accountable only to yourself and God, and to those whom God ordains in a general way.

    The System does not believe in a free will. This is what it says about the coming leader:
    "He causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond,
    to receive a mark IN their right hand, or IN their foreheads:
    And that no man might buy or sell save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is 666." Revelation / Apocalypse 13:16-18
    POSITIVE ID / Verichip http://hopetotheend.com/chipindex.html

    God believes in your free will. You have a choice...
    "And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice,
    "If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark IN his forehead, or IN his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
    and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up forever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name." Rev / Apocalypse 14:9-11

    "I have set before you life and death...therefore choose ( eternal ) life." Deuteronomy 30:19
    "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death."

    Mike,
    I am of the opinion that Obama was and still is an anti-Christ. He is most certainly an American traitor.
    I am an Aussie and have been following your Newsletter for quite a while, now, and I have never seen
    a president who so blatantly worked AGAINST American interests as Obama. Down here, we call him
    "Obamanation"!
    Kind Regards,

    As many of you have stated its hard to no who to believe, It does seem though that for some reason it does bother the President that

    I have a sense of the lies, it come from my soul. I know the shackles put on America by the ungrateful citizens who have no respect for their home but live in her privilege. I am a born again Christian and I am the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ. Born again Saved by Grace through faith , the Holy Bible is Father God’s word to this world for instruction. America has been a missionary country of faith ,hope and Charity the greatest of these Charity, I was raise in a community where the name of Jesus was on every lip and family and neighbors shared Biblical instruction . Rev. Billy Graham crusades were on every TV and our family grandparent , parents and children set in the same room and watched them, your eternal life is worth more than your work, your physical health or your electronic devises. Your family and friends need salvation that comes only through Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit gives the soul decrement.

    I too pray every day, thank God we kept Clinton out! I pray everyday that President Trump keeps to his agenda and keeps moving forward and upward! I pray for you and yours and our First Lady and our Vice President and Second Lady and families. I mostly pray for this great America and will do my best to talk up the conservative centered movement. My thoughts are now that this goes as far back as 1962 when we were told not to produce a family quota higher then 2 1/2 and that prayer does not belong in our schools. I regret that in my youth I was not more proactive or more educated in the workings of our government. God Bless you and yours, I continue to pray, God Bless America.

    It doesn't surprise me because Soros and McCain are friends and Soros is the one who is the king of the swamp! His foundation has taken tax payer dollars during the Obama administration for his Open Society Foundation and used it illegally to try to effect elections and governments in other countries, like Macedonia and Albania. In fact the U.S. Agency for International Development worked alongside the Open Society Foundation to impose left leaning policies in countries, such as Macedonia. Soros' association with the State Department of Albania goes back to 2011; Soros urged Secretary of State Clinton to take action in Albania over demonstrations and within days Clinton sent an envoy that Soros recommended to Albania. Records show that Obama's ambassador to Macedonia, Jess L. Baily, worked behind the scenes with Soros' Open Society Foundation to funnel large sums of tax dollars to destabilize the democratically elected, center - right government of Macedonia (causing an interference of the U.S. Ambassador in domestic political affairs in violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations). One of Soros' groups translated "Rules for Radicals" into Macedonian. It is reported that McCain and Soros became friends after the Senator was a member of the "Keating Five". It is also reported that the experience scarred McCain that he became a vigorous advocate for campaign finance reform and in the process reportedly became friends with Soros. Soros and Clinton - linked Teneo Among donors to the McCain Institute for International Leadership, which is associated with Arizona State University. This information can be found on Judicial Watch's website and the Daily Caller. Judicial Watch has the emails and documents to prove this was and probably still is going on until the swamp is totally drained.

    Thank you for your reporting. I must say I am loosing trust with the political process. Between folks who will use any measure to get their way (both republicans and democrats), to fake news... who does the American people believe? Other than knowing our elected candidates personally, it is hard for the average person to know if they are true and honest people in office. If they are trust worthy how do they get their message out to the people without "the opposition" telling lies of contradiction. Who do we believe?

    It seems that everything the Democrats (and some so-called Republicans) have accused the President of is exactly what they have done! Thank you, Mr. Huckabee, for continuing to report the truth since we'll never see or hear it from the main stream media. God bless you and God bless the United States of America. We will be great again, God willing.

  • Joseph Behrendt

    02/23/2018 01:11 PM

    The part I don't understand is that both sides had been bugging each other for years and this time it was a Republican President who took the fall. As I remember from the testimony of I believe it was Gordon Liddy, he stated that they had already been in and out clean and were instructed to go back in and that's when they were caught. Now to me that reeks of a set-up. With all that is happening today in the Democratic Party I would suspect foul play in every scandal. All one has to do is look at the alligations an then look to the person making them . It usually is that person or one of their own staff committing the crime an not the other party that they say it is.

I pray that God will work with men such as you to continue to uncover the dirty deeds committed by those who were elected for the betterment of the people of this nation instead of seeking power and wealth on the backs of those very people they were supposed to serve!

    Hillary Clinton, the Democrats, the deep state people, that are 100% dedicated to supporting the liberals, socialists, Communists, and atheists in their goal of transforming America into a socialistic/Communist country will NOT suffer any consequences of all this crime. There are two sets of laws........ one for the liberals and the Democrats, and one for the Republicans, conservatives, and Christians!!! And with 80 percent of the mainstream news media on their side, all the mainstream newspapers, all the mainstream national magazines, all the "planted" judges in place, all the "deep state" appointees, all the Hollywood trash, all the college professors, all the mainstream liberal networks; ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, and NPR, all the RINOs in our own party, all the Democrat plants in our own party; Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Jeff Flake, etc, and all the atheists in America, and all their other supporters looking out for them, distorting the truth for them, deceiving and misleading people for them, lying for them, and protecting and defending them....... THEY WILL NEVER HAVE TO FACE CRIMINAL CHARGES!!! Clinton and the DNC paid for the fake dossier, James Comey and his cohorts used it against her political opponents, and the NSA and CIA used their liberal deep state cohorts to spy on her political opponents, Clinton lied about Benghazi, deleted classified and subpoenaed emails, keep a server with classified emails and other documents on it in a private unsecured location, and used her position for monetary gain from other countries, and so many other things that were illegal and criminal in nature...............YET SHE WILL NEVER FACE A DAY IN COURT, OR SERVE ANY TIME FOR HER WRONG DOINGS, OR PAY ANY FINES FOR HER CRIMES!!!!

    AND YET EVERYTIME A REPUBLICAN JAY WALKS OR SPITS ON THE SIDEWALK, THEY ARE INVESTIGATED AND PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW ALLOWED........... AND SOMETIMES NOT ALLOWED!!!!

    We are almost to the point of our laws and state departments and news media being used just like they are used in a Communist country!!!

    IT MAKES ME AND THE MILLIONS OF COMMON-SENSE, PATRIOTIC, GOD-FEARING AMERICANS SO MAD WE CAN'T STAND IT!!! OUR HANDS ARE TIED, AND NOTHING WE DO MAKES ANY DIFFERENCE!!! THANK GOD FOR TRUMP, BUT SO MANY FORCES ARE TRYING THEIR BEST TO DESTROY HIM...... COMING AT HIM FROM EVERY ANGLE....... FOR A CORRUPT, LYING, FAKE NEWS LIBERAL MEDIA, TO COLLEGE PROFESSORS, TO THE HOLLYWOOD TRASH.......... AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IT SEEMS THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WE CAN DO!!! GOD WILL BE THE ONLY ONE WHO WILL SAVE AMERICA IF HE SEES FIT! BUT AFTER WATCHING FOR 30 OR 40 YEARS, "GOOD CHRISTIAN PEOPLE" VOTING FOR TRASH LIKE BILL CLINTON AND OBAMA, AND OTHER DEMOCRATS THAT ARE TOTALLY AGAINST WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES AND AGAINST CHRISTIANS AND CHRISTIANITY, I BELIEVE THE LORD IS GOING TO LET AMERICA FALL...... FURTHER THAN WHAT IT HAS ALREADY FALLEN.

    I BELIVE THE LORD IS GOING TO BRING JUDGMENT ON AMERICA. ONE MAN TOLD ME I SHOULDN'T BE WORRIED ABOUT THE CONDITION OF AMERICA, BECAUSE THE LORD WAS IN CHARGE AND HE WOULD TAKE CARE OF IT. I TOLD HIM THAT IS PRECISELY WHAT I AM WORRIED ABOUT...... BECAUSE I KNOW THE LORD IS IN CHARGE AND I BELIEVE HE IS GOING TO BRING JUDGEMENT ON AMERICA FOR AMERICA, AND CHRISTIANS IN GENERAL, TURNING THEIR BACKS ON HIM AND SUPPORTING POLITICIANS THAT MAKE LAWS AGAINST BIBLICAL MORALS AND VALUES!

    But thank you for everything you do. I really enjoy your emails and articles and your TV show.
    Thank you for everything, and may God clean up this corruption and immorality in America and

When will anybody finally stop yapping about it and start sinking some teeth into the heart of the matter and take action against these criminal acts? Enough already! Us common people would have already been nailed to the tree for far lesser deeds. Patience is running thin!

    Hi Mike,
    I appreciate all you do.
    Lately, I have been thinking alot about today's kids and young adults. Why would we expect them to honor and obey the law when we have people in government who have been breaking the law for years and not held accountable. Why is it that working people can get arrested quicker for lesser crimes? I think if we want a change in the way today's kids and young adults act, we need for everyone to be held accountable and subject to the same rule of law. God is no respecter of persons, so the law should not be either.
    Thank you,
    One righteously indignant american!

    Hi Mike, I voted for you in the primary the first time you ran for president. Too bad more people didn't feel the way you and I did. I know you are for the FairTax as I am too, but I now think we may need a modified version. Call it Phase 2. Make the current personal income tax permanent, delay the prebate but eliminate payroll taxes and fund social security and welfare with a consumption tax like the FairTax espouses. When everyone sees how well it works, then we can go to Phase 3 and totally eliminate income taxes and the IRS.
    That will be the fastest way to drain the SWAMP...

    Dear Governor Huckabee,
    I have felt, since all this garbage began leaking in early 2017, that this is too similar to Watergate! I pray that ALL of the info comes out in the wash, including info about crooked Hillary and the closet Muslim Obama. Oh, include closet Nazi Soros in this too. I pray it all come out soon, and we can put folks behind bars, clear out the FBI so they can do the job they are supposed to do.

    Thank you Mike. It's so hard to trust any information we get anymore. Yours I can always count on to be the truth!

    Gov. Huckabee, I have a few thoughts on our political system. I keeping hearing it is the Democrats vs the Republicans. But I am now convinced it is the people vs congress. And President trump stands in the gap. A few things I think would help are; 1) term limits - this would find men willing to serve, not create a career. It would probably find mostly men who have succeeded in the private sector and were ready to lend their expertise to the nation. 2) I think that the states should pay their own representatives. Each state could pay as they please without concern for other states. This would cause a rip in the party unity that causes the two parties to never work together. 3) I think that no money from a foreign source should be allowed in campaign funds. Why should foreigners have an opportunity to affect our elections. 4) Hold a convention of states to sort out the problems we have.

    I am no expert, but these are a few of my thoughts.

    I keep telling you "Nothing will happen to ANY of these people". The Reps are are anxious to get rid of Trump as the Dems, swamp, liberals, progressives, establishment, media, and on and on. Hell, there isn't even an investigation, and what would "Shaky Sessions" do anyway?
