A while back, when everyone was caught up in the debate over whether President Trump should sit down for questioning from Robert Mueller, I suggested a list of questions that Mueller should be asked by Trump. Now that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is about to sit for questioning by congressional committees, I thought I’d be similarly helpful with a list for Congress to use. Devin Nunes surely doesn’t need my help on this, but, just for fun, here goes...

Peter Strzok

By Mike Huckabee

Peter Strzok, the FBI agent whose opposition to Trump and support for Hillary were revealed in his text messages to his like-minded mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, pulled a surprise move over the weekend. His attorney sent a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, saying that Strzok is willing to testify without immunity or invoking the Fifth Amendment and answer any questions. The attorney writes, “Pete is central to this story. We should let the American people see who he really is.” (I think the text messages gave us a pretty good idea of who he is, as did the transparent attempts to hide them for so long.) Continuing: “He thinks that his position, character and actions have all been misrepresented and caricatured, and he wants an opportunity to remedy that.”

I assume we will hear more of the claim that those texts represented his personal, private political views and never influenced his professional decisions in any way. We might also hear another excuse that’s been floated: that the anti-Trump texts were merely cover for the affair, so if his wife saw them, it would appear that he and Page were just talking politics. Or that he was just saying those things to comfort his distraught girlfriend. In other words, despite the obvious bend-over-backwards-to-exonerate-Hillary investigation and the bend-any-rule-to-ensnare-Trump investigation, we can believe that he was a completely honest professional of good character because the evidence that he wasn’t was a lie concocted either to cover up the affair he was having behind his wife’s back or to keep his mistress in a good mood. That may require more bending than even the most flexible minds can handle without snapping.


Misunderstood question

By Mike Huckabee

President Trump said he wouldn’t sign the compromise version of a House immigration reform plan, which threw GOP leaders for a loop after they put in a lot of effort to create a bill that would draw enough support to pass. But the White House walked that back, with an unnamed senior official saying that Trump just misunderstood the question. A statement was issued saying that Trump will sign either bill, both of which contain funding for a border wall.


Open Arms

By Mike Huckabee

If you listen to certain prominent news sources (or get all your news from social media in the form of Democratic Underground memes), you might believe that America is a horrible place, filled with violent, narrow-minded, Republican-voting bigots who hate immigrants, which is loosely defined as everyone who is here and wasn’t born here, whether they followed the law and actually became an immigrant or just came across the border illegally. It’s no wonder all the more tolerant, welcoming countries like Germany and France lecture us so much about our shortcomings.

If any of that sounds true to you, then prepare to have your mind blown by reality. According to the Pew Research Center, America has taken in more refugees than any other nation on Earth: about 3 million since 1980. In fact, that’s more than all the other nations combined. And there were no cutbacks or biases during Republican Administrations; during a 10-year period beginning under Bush in 2002, there was an increase in the number of immigrants granted refuge from African and Middle Eastern nations.

SNL cast member speaks up

By Mike Huckabee

It was no surprise when “Saturday Night Live” was blasted and abandoned by Republicans because of its unfunny, relentlessly anti-Trump sketches. But then, even liberal media outlets such as started to complaint that it wasn’t comedy anymore, just propaganda. Former cast members, including Rob Schneider and Joe Piscopo, also weighed in on how the show had let its obvious bias kill the humor. But its defenders dismissed all that criticism and scoffed that the older cast members were just out of touch.

Well, try this: the show has become so biased and predictable that even one of the current cast members has spoken up in hopes of changing it. And that cast member Leslie Jones is female and African-American, so if "SNL's" writers try to dismiss this criticism as “white male privilege,” it will be funniest thing they’ve come up with since the 2016 election.


Comment of the Day

“I'm hoping to wake up some morning, and find US Marshalls conducted pre-dawn raids at the homes of Rosenstein, Mueller, Comey and others in this cabal, and that TV cameras recorded events as they did the perp walk to black SUVs, where they were taken 'downtown' and booked. (It's sort of a senior citizen version of the daydream where Audrey Hepburn smiles at you). Maybe when Jeanine Pirro is AG, and Jeff Sessions is home in Alabama drinking sweet tea.” – Lawrence F.
