Another take on Mueller, affirming ours

May 30, 2019 |

I said in my first-take on Robert Mueller’s appalling public statement that I was not a legal expert, so it was just my research on this subject and my experience in dealing with ruthless political hacks that led me to conclude it was a shameless and desperate attempt to throw red meat to the impeachment-crazed Democrats on his way out the door and muddy the waters to take the focus off the corruption in his own agency.

 

Well, as expected, Jerry Nadler and other Democrats scurried straight to the nearest TV cameras to rail about this new proof of Trump’s many (but still unnamed) “crimes.” They conveniently ignored the comments already appearing from people who do have legal and prosecutorial backgrounds, slamming Mueller’s last minute Hail Mary bomb throw.

 

There are many such articles appearing, and I’ll point to more later, but for now, let's start with Sean Davis’ piece at the Federalist.  He lays out the myriad ways in which Mueller’s statement violated both laws of conduct for prosecutors and his own agency’s regulations, contradicted his own report, and turned the basic American right of presumption of innocence on its head.  In case you think he’s just being a Trump partisan, he describes Mueller as having become a Mini-Me clone of James Comey, who pulled the same unethical abuse of power on Hillary Clinton by declining to prosecute while still leaving a big cloud of suspicion over her head.

You see, in America, it's not up to the target of an investigation to prove that he or she did not commit a crime, nor is it the place of a prosecutor to publicly imply that someone should have been charged with a crime even though the investigation unearthed no evidence.  Presumption of innocence means that if the investigator can't find enough evidence to take to a grand jury, get an indictment and convince a jury to convict, then he folds his tent, shuts up and goes away, and that person is considered innocent.  The prosecutor doesn't call a press conference to declare that person is "probably guilty, but we just couldn't quite prove it" or "would've been found guilty if only I had brought charges." 

 

Davis' conclusion: "Mueller’s performance made it clear for all to see that what he ran for the last two years wasn’t an independent investigation pursuant to the rule of law so much as an inquisition motivated by political animus."  And - oh goody! - now it will be probably used as the basis of impeachment hearings in the House that are exactly the same thing.

 

Davis also includes comments from former FBI supervisors and federal prosecutors who immediately began flooding him with outraged calls and emails.  One ex-prosecutor said that if he had ever pulled anything like what Mueller just did, he would have been “crucified.” 

 

Read the full piece at the link below and brace yourself.  The impeachment-mad Democrats think they’ve tasted blood and are howling for more.  They’ve yet to realize that if they give in to their ugly partisan impulses, the political bleeding they cause will be their own.

    There was proof from the beginning of the "supposed" investigation that Mueller was not independent because he hired attorneys who were supporters and donors to Hillary Clinton. Therefore, we will never accept a one-sided report filled with information spread by the liberal media and unproven information from a dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC. Also, since the Democrats never turned over their computers for verification, where is the proof of who actually transferred the information from their computers, was it really Russians - Democrats had questionable people working for them so could it have been an inside job as there is a question of the speed with which it was transferred. DIane Feinstein and Debbie Wasserman Schultz had criminals working for them, So many questions????

    Governor, I read your column every day. It seems like you've covered everything very well. I am ready to begin seeing some indictments concerning all those who have illegally put false information together against our president. Do you know if there is any time frame for this to start happening? Maybe then, some of those who have falsely accused our president will have something else to occupy their time.

    Since Mueller’s comments were nothing more than an exact duplicate of his written report, how did he get authorization to stand before the media to open his mouth with the Department of Justice behind him? It would seem that he would have been legally bound from speaking by the Director of DOJ!

    Or was he trying to protect his buddy Comey who is likely heading for jail if Barr and the federal pardoners their job.

    Thank you Mike Huckabee for giving clarity to this terrible abuse of power by Mueller and his team - a regular lynch mob! Your wisdom, your common sense, your smile and humor, all are such a HUGE contribution to all of us!!! You and Sarah both must be a great encouragement to our President. The Lord bless you in all your endeavors, and THANKS A MILLION!

    What is his crime - being rude? Using Twitter? Beating entrenched politicians at their own game? Don't think those qualify.
    Stop being such sore losers & get on with your jobs already.

    I have to vent on 3 topics. #1 How is what Elizabeth Warren did much different than what the celebrities did to gain unfair advantage to gain a position desired by more deserving.? #2 How is it a that Stormy and Avenatti didn't commit Breach of contract for Thousands of dollars and then tried extortion not a problem? and #3 How is it that of all the people who join the FBI we end up with inept, corrupt, losers like Hoover, Mueller and Comey. That is quite a tradition to live up to. I don't see Mr Wray as much of an improvement. jm

    I have mentioned a month ago how I felt about Mueller, as long as he is in the public view he demonstrates what a dishonorable person looks like and how it acts. I also mentioned how our congressional pukes recognized Mueller as a man of honor and that he is worthy of respect. That has been proven wrong for he seeks revenge and used the position he was given to carry out a hoax to frame the President of the United States for a "crime" that does not exist. Respect an entity like that is not responseable what has the Congress finished? What is responseable? The Congress is a sham, disgraceful, garbage filled entity a few people try and bring dignity to it but the Congress is a dumping ground for low life people that can not build or create useful projects that make America Stronger and meaningful assets for its citizens. Congress is a destructive entity that has become anti American and the people should start thinking how to dismantle it and create a honorable institution that will help the American Citizen. What we have now is not working when one person can get in front of our media and try to destroy America, (we already have countries trying to that) we have a huge problem I do not want to pay for a person to destroy me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! An American Citizen......... Its time to reorganize the rules or enforce the oath of office to only investigate is not your only job our country is being overrun on the border Healthcare needs attention our highways need renovation need more tax reform and immigration reform does anyone see the picture here???????????????????? Is anybody listening? A little long winded I had to ask.

    I like your show and look forward to it. How is it so easy for these crooks to do so much damage and the others act like oh well!!!!!

I just can't understand how so many people, that now what is going on but wonlt say a thing. What is happening to our country

    An “Old West” analysis and summary of Mueller report and Congress’ efforts in one sentence:


    "While we recognize that the subject did not actually steal any horses, he is obviously guilty of trying to resist being hanged for it."

    I totally agree. These are corrupt politicians whether for greed or thirst for power are destroying our country. We must take a stand for truth and justice or we will loose our nation.

    Who pays for this? Thinking that if people had to put up their own finances to fund this blame game, and not be absorbed - funded - paid for - by government, ummm taxpayer money unless a fair trial was had and conviction was served...a lot of this total nonsense would stop! I don't know...but I know I am so sick of this! Oh the mess we are handing off to our grandkids!

  • Marilyn DeMarco

    I am so Sick of this, so sick of it! Please let it stop! I would NEVER vote even one of these democrats into office for this very reason, they have not given this country one minutes peace since our elected President has taken office. They will NEVER get my vote and I am NOT alone. They need to stop degrading our President and this country, but they won’t they are babies who cannot accept the results of the election and support the office of this President and this country, they make this country look divided and weak!

    I wondered about this. And I noticed that Mueller stumbled through his speech as if he had just been handed it. I know he is a partisan, a DemonRat to the nth degree. Could he have been following the dictates of his party leaders to put a new bee into the bonnet of the Never Trumper DemonRats to stir up their mindless followers? Why did he give this speech and why did he change his mind about appearing before the House committee? The tangles and warp and weave of the Washington swamp is a big mystery to most of us.

    Thanks Mike. You seem to be one of the few in public domain who has any common sense left. Carry on my friend!

    With this Mueller press release, the Socialist Democrats think that they have gotten away with all of their treasonous corruption, and they probably think that we're not paying attention, and to me it sheds the light on the darkness, the Socialist Democrats

    The democrats just continue to dig uselessly. Reminds me of the old adage: when you find yourself in a hole, maybe it's time to stop digging.

    The Democrats are running so scared that they are going to try to use anything to keep them selves out of the public light until after the 2020 election‘s. But it’s not going to work because even Democrats throughout the nation and see what’s going on they don’t want to believe it but they’re losing Ground every moment

    My thought is that if he had been able to recommend charges against President Trump he would have done it in his report to the DOJ. He didn’t because he knew there was nothing there! This is a Hail Mary to say his name and the Democrats faces, he stated the words were carefully chosen (meaning that we crafted the report in way to give the democrats a chance to impeach and nothing else). It is all bullsh*t from the start and I hope Barr nails all these bast**ds.

    All he did was give the DemonRATs a chance to crucify themselves which look like they are climbing on the stack to do!
