Who is John Huber?

Who is John Huber?

U.S. Attorney John Huber of Utah is the latest to be brought in to “investigate the investigators” at the FBI and Justice Department, in lieu of what many had concluded was the only way to get to the bottom of misconduct there: a special counsel.

Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions has been under fire for some time from congressional Republicans and also from President Trump (and also from me and, I’ll bet, you) for not appointing a second special counsel. Obviously, the conflicts of interest at the Justice Department are so thickly layered and involve so many current and former employees that it can’t possibly be trusted to investigate itself. Sessions has announced in a letter to congressional leaders that he’s decided, at least for now, not to appoint a special counsel, but he assures us that Huber is already digging.

The appointment of Huber appears to be a compromise: On one hand, he’s “of Utah,” not “of Washington,” and that’s got to be good. He has more power than the IG, in that he’s a prosecutor with subpoena power and can file criminal charges. In addition to the alleged misconduct at the FBI and Justice relating to the FISA court and government surveillance, he’ll also be investigating how well they looked into then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s ties to the Uranium One deal, so, again, good.

On the other hand, Huber won’t be as independent as a special counsel in that his job falls under the supervision of Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, and that situation represents what seems to be a virtually insurmountable conflict. Rosenstein himself is one of the players in the drama unfolding at Justice; he reportedly even signed off on one of the FISA applications based on Christopher Steele’s fictional “dossier.” And, for what it’s worth (maybe a lot), Rosenstein is also the one who gave us special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Russian “meddling” and allegations of “collusion” between Russia and the Trump campaign and who appears to be giving tacit approval for Mueller to cast his net wherever he likes.

So, how does this work? Is Huber going to investigate his own boss?


Commentary continues below advertisement


Huber was appointed U.S. Attorney in 2015 by Obama, but he had the strong support of Senators Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee, so it’s hard to ascribe any partisan bias either way. Perhaps that’s one reason he was chosen for the job. He’s been quietly going about his business since November.

Democrats believe (and some “fact-checkers” imply) that they consider these allegations to have been dreamed up by wild-eyed conservative conspiracy theorists in tinfoil hats trying to “distract” from the Trump/Russia probe. But we already KNOW officials have lied under oath, omitted pertinent facts from applications to spy on Americans and expressed their fervent desire to keep Trump out of office, going so far as to refer to an “insurance policy.” And that’s just for starters. They’ve dragged their feet to the point of non-compliance with FOIA requests and subpoenas. They’ve redacted large portions of documents that turned out to have nothing to do with national security but appear to have had plenty to do with covering their behinds. And they sent around a draft memo of Hillary’s “exoneration” for various staff members to fine-tune before she and other witnesses had even been interviewed.

Sessions says he’s already receiving regular updates from Huber. I wonder how much collaboration there will be with Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who has already interviewed many witnesses and accumulated thousands and thousands of documents. Anything to speed the process would be great, because the crimes that have been alleged come with statutes of limitations, some of which have already expired or will be expiring soon. If there’s one thing lawyers know, it's the art of the strategic delay.

    Great to be able to comment! To me, the evil side of all this at the upper levels including lying, extreme bias, media propaganda, hatred against bible believers, and conservatives to the point of murder is to gain control so they can run things the way they want. They are willing to do any manner of criminal things to gain their ends. They have
    obtained the money, often by questionable means, for all manner of payoffs and support of schemes to win their battle. It's a battle of the ages. And, they don't wish to be incarcerated. That's why we are stalled at every move to correct the crimes already committed. Are they too big to fall? Maybe so. I could imagine that any Official, even
    previously, apparently committed to justice, stumbling, at an offer of immense payoff for falling in line. Or worse yet, easing off on the suggestion he or she may lose some progeny, like grandchildren if prosecution continued. In some cases where an autopsy might shed light, who's going to ask for one if the person is dead and the family is threatened? Rationalization is that he is dead already, we don't need more of that, and killings are not being solved anyway. Those possibilities could answer the question of why some with the power to do so, do not
    appoint special counsels, or shift the investigations to the right areas which most Americans would like to see
    happen. Great minds with wrong morals work against us. I pray that the truth will out and that God wills that
    justice will prevail. That is our hope.

    Tell me please Gov.Huckabee, is there anything we can do to fight against the lies and dishonesty in our government. And we just sent a check in the mail in support of you. Sorry we didn't send it sooner!
    My husband and I (we are both 71) do pray and we know prayer is powerful - we pray for the lies
    to be revealed and yes they have, so very much, and we do thank God for the many
    people like yourself, Judicial Watch, and Sara Carter, Fox News who are on top of so many stories and letting us
    know what is going on. What is going on in Washington is off the charts. it is scary!
    We thank you for your service to our country...you are well respected and trusted and speak with grace, wisdom, and knowledge, we are very grateful for you and you daughter, truly!
    We are bible believing christians, we know how it will all end and we trust in God Almighty! He is our strength in all things!!!!!! We would like to know if you have any advice on being so frustrated with the deceit and lies that come out of the mouths of so many in Washington and what we could do as people who care!

    Respectfully,

    Rosenstein should be facing criminal charges along with Comey and McCabe and he is going to determine if any of his cronies are guilty? That is unbelievable and Jeff Sessions has to know that. Who is Jeff Sessions afraid of because he is protecting Hillary just like Comey and everyone else involved? Do you think Jeff Sessions was already in the swamp? I think it is unfair to let Jeff Sessions continue his role as AG because he is unable to make decisions or fair ones. Do you think Rosenstein picked Huber? So much injustice in this country.

    Hello Mike! Love your newsletters! Have a comment/concern about the article you posted on Pope Francis however. I'm a devout Catholic (not a huge fan of the way Pope Francis makes comments off the cuff that lead all sorts of erroneous interpretations), but in THIS case the article written by the atheist smacks of complete fraud. Pope Francis has recently spoken of the existence of hell (see the links from the following article)
    https://aleteia.org/2018/03/30/3-times-pope-francis-warned-about-hell/

    If he had actually said the things that the atheist reporter -who refuses to record conversations, and admits he reconstructs "from memory" - then he would have been directly contradicting things he said on other occasions. In spite of the fact that I'm not thrilled with Pope Francis, I find this very VERY hard to believe.

    Second, I wonder if you saw this article in the BBC? https://www.theguardian.com/membership/2017/dec/03/how-scotland-reduced-knife-deaths-among-young-people

    They have strict access to guns, and lower gun deaths but higher knife deaths. London just surpassed the murder rate of NY City for this year (but with knife violence.) https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/london-murder-rate-new-york-overtakes-stabbing-a8283866.html

    The Scotland approach to reducing the violent tendencies of the INDIVIDUAL are working! And this is the ONLY approach that I believe will work. We can take away the guns, but those who wish to do violence will use knives, or trucks, or bombs, or flame throwers, or whatever they can get their hands on. The problems we face lie in the human heart and mind, and only there will they be solved.

    Thanks for all you do!!

    All over but the shouting, folks. All this will drag out, with hundreds of lawyers making huge bucks for no or little effort, until the Statutes of Limitation have run their course, and then all the rats get away with their millions of payoff money plus hefty pensions to enjoy retirement in the lap of luxury while the peons count pennies for extra groceries, rant and rave about dirty politicians and then vote for the same ones thanks to name recognition. Gotta admit the libtards and their MSM have played it well. They might consider remaining behind their walls because millions of citizens will not be happy when the truth finally hits them.

    Perhaps a better question might be "Who is Jeff Sessions?" I've been a long time fan of Sen. Sessions, I suppose because I Iive in the Florida Panhandle just a stone's throw from the Alabama state line and considered him a neighbor. It took me a while to get use to Sen. Sessions amid his long rambling talks in Congressional committee meetings, but if one listened long enough he'd come away with the impression that Jeff Session was an honest, decent man who believed strongly in the rule of law. So, what happened to that man? Why has he failed to grab the reins as the Attorney General in charge of the Justice Department? It was known by everybody that Hillary Clinton was as crooked a my dog's hind leg. So, why didn't he ensure that every document the Congress had asked for, in fact, subpoenaed, wasn't handled quickly by the FBI as it regarded Hillary's email boondoggle. Instead, Sessions was missing in action ever since he recused himself from the Russia-collusion question. I'm hugely disappointed in AG Sessions and this apparent failure to appoint a second Special Counsel to investigate ALL the facts surrounding Hillary and the FISC summary that allowed the Obama team to spy on Trump's campaign.

    DOJ and FBI are rotten from the top and not to be trusted. Same for John Brennan and James Clapper. These two will never be touched or condemned. The Clinton Foundation should NEVER have been allowed. With so many charitable foundations, why would one inclined to make a charitable act need a new one with so many foundations available. A private foundation connected to a politician is just and invitation to corruption, as we have seen. NO ONE gives to Government without expecting something in return. The bigger and more powerful the government, the more corruption and payoffs. How did we ever get to the point of believing we needed BIG Government. Certainly the Founders realized it to be the path to lost freedom. They also advise to rotate the bums through thinking they would do so on principle. Very few in Government today have any principles except their own self-interest. Time for Term Limits, including for judges. No one should make a career of government. I used to think only Chicago had crooked government. Would like to see an organization chart of both DOJ, and FBI, with names of those known to have been involved in corruption listed in the respective boss and immediate supervisors indicated. Top levels of so-caled 7th floor of DOJ, etc ., should all be changed with new administration. Phone Senate filibuster ended. Senate proving to be worthless. Everything being by whose votes can be bought by handing out Government money taken by under-represented taxpayers few in number. (Frederic Bastiat, 1850). Rod Silverstein and Wray should be removed from office as should Sessions. We are no longer a republic, or a democracy, but an oligarchy. Needs to change. Need to stop the undermining of our country by the Deep State bureaucrat establishment.

    I am so disgusted with Jeff Sessions, I could scream. He made a colossal mistake in recusing himself from the Russian investigation and leaving his president to be handled by a democrat who has shown his partiality toward those opposed to our president. He has all sorts of conflicts of interest (Rosenstein), yet refuses to step down or recuse himself. All reports go directly to him, and HE decides what will be given to Congress and what will be withheld from them. I even heard he was one of the people who talked Sessions into recusing himself. Either Sessions is a closet Trump hater, is not the brightest crayon in the box, or is going about this in such a manner as to leave the impression he isn't to be trusted. He has turned on his own party time and time again over the requests for a second special counsel. There is no way he doesn't understand the necessity for staying ahead of the statue of limitations which have already expired on some of Obama's cabinet and key players in this debacle. Since Huber has to give his reports to Rosenstein, his boss....how can his investigation not be found lacking when his own boss is at the center of so much that needs to be investigated. Rosenstein has shown me, he has no character and is not to be trusted by not stepping down when he should have. I have little faith anyone will be held accountable at the very top.

    My suggestion for taking care of our children in the schools is to lock down the schools, so that persons who are bent on evil are locked out. Then begin a process of building security fences around the properties with security cameras, and an armed security guard monitoring the system. We cannot continue believing everything is alright in our society, and pretending that evil does not exist. I wonder if the deep state is not promoting these shootings to accomplish their agenda. Where is the adult leadership in Washington D. C.? I know that there are some who are attempting to lead, but forget the tweets, and just do your job. Fire Sessions and put someone in charge who will get the job done. We must pray for our elected officials, because our great nation is in serious trouble, and powerless to do anything about it.

    I have apprehension and almost disdain towards special counsels because they drag things on and on; they cost a lot and they seem wild to me. That being said, this is one time that anything short of a special counsel is inadequate. The swamp is deep; it has been operating for a long time and there is corruption that needs the expertise and resources that a special counsel can pull together in order to expose, root out and shine the light of justice on. I don't know why Americans have to be at the mercy of Attorney Jeff Sessions' frustrating decision. We have been victims of the deceptive and controlling Deep State for long enough.

First he recused himself when he didn't have to (and uses the wrong statute to do so) He drags his feet and becomes more an obstructionist than a help to his (our) party. He appoints the IG and a Utah attorney instead of a 2nd Special counsel Etc. If he waits any longer the Statute of limitations will have passed for all the DOJ, FBI, and Democrat (including "crooked Hillary) criminals to be tried!!!! Sessions will then be "aiding and abetting" criminals. When will Justice evfer be done?

    Henry David Thoreau wrote in his "Civil Disobedience", warning of the the danger of a permanent Federal Government. In short, he warned of a few men gaining control and writing laws which would give them power as well as protection. In essence we would become a fake Republic and a sham Democracy. One of the country's fore-fathers, I don't remember which, wrote, considering the second amendment, that one of the purposes was for the common man to be able to defend himself, not only against others, but also a government which would usurp the democracy. He went on to say that the common man not only had the right to defend his way of life , but he has the "OBLIGATION" to do so against a tyrannical government.
    To counter this "Right", laws were passed saying anyone planning or taking action against Federal Government would be charged with Treason and punishable by death. The federal government quickly protected itself against citizen action.
    The situation today further demonstrates Thoreau's point.
    A second independent counsel could subpoena anyone to exact information. Frightening to the "Swampers". So we have 15 un-named Republicans calling for an investigation into the Fisa, Clinton, etc. complex. Firstly, why un-named? Probably because they do not want their electorate to know what they are doing. Their action smacks of the Swamp taking care of their own, as the Inspector General, as I understand it, can deal only with those employed by the Federal Government, and all the big fish no longer, or never, work(ed) for the Fed. So this is a joke investigation.
    Whereas a Special Counsel could go anywhere he wished, example, Mueller.
    The "Insiders" are protected so deep with conflicting laws and processes it will be impossible to wade through to the truth.
    A simple fast way to the truth would to be to take a page out of history, when our country was simple and open. Take a rope, a horse and a stout tree. There are plenty of people who would hold the rope, hold the horse and find the tree. Then just ask for everything they know when asked a question. The country was and is more important than any individual person or group.

    In finality, there was one more warning by the Fore-fathers. They said the Democracy could last only until the common Masses realized they had the power to control through the election process( and men realized they could tap into the Mass mind set).

    We have reached the point where the uneducated and inexperienced far out-weigh the educated, life experienced voters. Thus the end which was prophesied could be nearing fruition.

    The Obama administration is the most corrupted in American history. It hurts me to know that most of their crimes are unpunished because of the statue of limitations, which is the result of negligence on the part of the A.G. Jeff Sessions, and not for ignorance but, for omission. This is one of the reasons I don't trust Jeff Sessions as A.G. of the USA. He said there is no motive to appoint a second counselor to investigate FISA abuses. I take it as a personal implication, that there was motive to appoint Mueller to investigate Trump administration.

    It would seem the "deep state" is deeper than deep. Based on what I have seen to date, the only individual who has a good chance of prosecution is Trump. I don't believe Trump is guilty of any offense mind you, but given what has been discovered about the FBI, DOJ, Clinton, and the Obama administration without any prosecutions are shocking. What's even more shocking is Sessions seems to be more concerned about the opioid war and sanctuary cities than in saving our Republic. The man should be fired immediately and replaced with Trey Gowdy or someone with similar traits.

    I just wonder if Sessions is stalling. The statute of limitations could run out before these things get going. He has to know by know if he has the evidence or not. Have heard people say if we want to really save this republic they need to do something now. I think President Trump wants to do things right and not intervere but do you think it is time he should take military into the FBI and investigate everything. He would not have to do Marshall law to do it. He has the legal right to do it. Unless Sessions came out with it very soon, clintons, obama, and the ones guilty will get away with it.

  • Shelley Riley

    03/30/2018 02:25 PM

    I am so torn by everything that is going on in our government right now. The corruption is so evident and wide spread, even to the most ill-informed individual, that you would have to be deaf, dumb and blind (or liberal) not to see it. Millions of people, myself included, are crying out for justice. What little we see being done on the side of justice is so non-existent on the surface. However, the highly publicized activity seems to all be against President Trump, his family and staff. Nothing of any consequence appears to be happening against the actual criminals. It is incredibly frustrating and many of us are reaching our breaking points.

    We have President Trump assuring us that everything is okay, that he has a "plan" and there are many things going on that we don't know about, to remain vigilant and patient and to trust him....on and on. And, as an avid Twitter user, I see bits and pieces supposedly from "Q" (who most are convinced is DJT) and the conspiracy theorists that keep referring to this big investigation with hundreds of indictments, videos to be released that will put HRC away for life, and where everyone involved will be prosecuted.

    Then, we have Jeff Sessions. The man who was supposed to bring justice in so many areas. I don't need to tell you how I and millions of others are disappointed and even disgusted with his apparent total failure to perform his job. President Trump occasionally indicates his displeasure and frustration with him, but fails to replace him. Is this an indication of his actual trust, that something truly is going on behind the scenes that Sessions is part of, that they are playing some sort of covert scenario until the "plan" can be revealed?

    We now have Jeff Sessions appointing John Huber to investigate Rod Rosenstein, his own boss and report back to his boss with any findings of wrongdoing. That goes beyond bizarre. Is this an indication that Sessions is part of the Deep State corruption or is he part of Trump's big plan that has yet to be revealed?

    Of course, none of this touches on Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and the Omnibus. Based on the size of the bill (2,000 + pages) they had to have been working on that for months. We all know Trump wanted funding for the military. Did this bill have his approval and foreknowledge? Was he truly betrayed by Ryan and McConnell? Will he be able to get the Wall built with that money? So many questions there.

    At times, I feel like I have too much information and this whole situation reads like some crazy spy novel that just never ends. I've actually read books like this in the past that were so bizarre, with so many twists and turns, that I eventually just stopped reading them. It was just too mentally taxing to keep up with it all and I was relieved when I closed the book early and walked away from it. If it weren't for the need to stay united and get us through the mid-terms and 2020 elections with the GOP on top, I would most likely close this book and walk away too. We have a lot at stake. I just hope I and many others have the mental and emotional stamina to keep fighting.

    Thank you for all that YOU do to keep us enlightened, informed and for the humor you bring to our lives. It is always a joy to hear from you.

    God Bless,
    Shelley

    Mike, I read your comments and agree with them. another point is the DOJ's handling of the Philadelphia refinery's bankruptcy and the apparent misuse of RIN's and RFS standards. Corn and Soybean growers want the RFS to be followed as Congress past it,and the RIN's not to be capped as the Big Oil lawyers want.. The lively hood of all farmers and agriculture employees can be affected if "Big Oil" can manipulate the Court systems. I know that this is not related to Huber, but will show how our courts can be corrupted. Thanks, Chuck

    Why is Sessions still employed? He has done nothing but cater to the democrats and does nothing that Trump or the republicans ask him to do. Leaves everything up to Rosenstein who is one of the biggest crooks in Washington DC. Trump should fire both Sssions and Rosenstein.

    Do you believe that we will finally see some justice or is the Swamp just too deep?

    Thank you for your newsletter and accepting comments. I'm so sickened by this whole situation. I know Trump fears backlash if he fires Sessions, but if anyone needs to go, it is him! He's not doing his job. Supposedly this started in November and here we are months later. We have a special council appointed when there's been no crime, yet we can't get a special council when there are numerous crimes committed. Are we just waiting for the statute of limitation to run out on these criminals? Clapper is already off the hook. How many more are we going to turn a blind eye to? Is this all to protect Obama and the Clinton's? Really disgusting to see there are two sets of legal standards in this country - one for the ruling elite and one for the rest of us. I've tried everything I can do to help fix this and it's not working. I'm getting very discouraged as are many people I know.

    I am not sure how to view this? I for one and am not alone by any means feel that we need to have a special counsel to investigate the FBI. I am not a Jeff Session fan and feel that the President should release him and put someone, maybe Trey Gowdy? in the Attorney General Seat. To me Sessions is part of the swamp at this point. It takes him forever to make a decision, seems he fights President Trump on a lot of issues. He lost me when he excluded himself at the beginning of all this! Thank you for all you do Mike!!!

    Gov. Huckabee, I still think a separate Independent Council should be appointed by AG Sessions! Here's something new. You know about the Clinton Foundation. I received an email about lunch bag Joe Hidden and John Kerry's sons setting an organization up to do what seems like the Clinton's did. Its called Rosemont or something similar to that. That away the two sons could get the money for the parents. Why don't you look into this. If you email me I can find the article and forward it to you. Just give me email where to send it. Thanks

    Getting very frustrated why nothing is being done. The evidence is overwhelming against Hillary et al and it seems nothing happens. Time to get rid of Mueller and get on with the real investigation against the real criminals.

    I don't trust Sessions' judgement. The red flags I see in this appointment is that his background is in violent crime and drug enforcement. The potential crimes in this investigation are related to elections, classified information and FISA procedures. Why didn't Sessions appoint someone who was intimately familiar with the FISA process? Classified information? Or the election process? Someone who couldn't be outwitted by those being investigated? Something doesn't smell right.
