On Wednesday night’s “Ingraham Angle,” there was a magnificent discussion about the sham Trump investigation with Rudy Giuliani, Joe diGenova and former Whitewater independent counsel Robert Ray that absolutely must not be missed, and I say that not because I was subbing for Laura Ingraham at the time.

 

After being on defense –- with his hands legally tied –- for the first two years of his Presidency, President Trump is finally able to go on offense, as he can no longer be accused of “interfering with the Russia investigation.” But something else is afoot as well, according to deGenova, and here is the tremendous breaking news: The FISA court has been looking into abuses of the FISA system and has communicated with the Justice Department about its findings. Their chief judge has already determined that for more than four years before the election of Donald Trump, there was an illegal spying operation (yes, SPYING –- and, yes, ILLEGAL) going on by four FBI contractors to break the law to steal personal electronic information about American citizens and to use it against the Republican Party.

It might be good to go back and read that last sentence again, slowly, and let it sink in.

 

The people heading up the Justice Department at that time --- including AG Sally Yates and assistant AG John Carlin –- apparently knew about it and lied to the FISA court. It seems that by the time they withheld the political origins of Christopher Steele’s Trump “dossier” to the court, it was already business as usual to deceive those judges, who no doubt have steam coming out of their ears.

 

There will be grand juries and indictments, according to diGenova, who knows how this works because he happens to have been one of the original lawyers on the FISA court. He said, “John Brennan isn’t going to need one lawyer –- he’s going to need five.”

 

So, if the Obama FBI was conducting these kinds of abuses all that time, we’ve got a serious violation of civil liberties on our hands. As I pointed out on the show, this revelation brings home what Jared Kushner was saying the other day about the investigation into Trump causing more damage than the Russians did. Civil libertarians should be enraged. “I think the investigation is going to end up being very, very intense,” Giuliani said, adding, “I agree that Attorney General Barr is exactly the right guy to do it; he’s got a great sense of justice...What they did with this court is an outrage, and it’s got to be corrected because we all can be invaded like this.”

 

DiGenova said that in addition to IG Michael Horowitz’s report, which is expected out in May or early June, there’s another big one scheduled to drop in two weeks: the one just on James Comey. This one will be “a bombshell,” he said (and, unlike the hacks at CNN and MSNBC, he doesn’t throw that word around lightly). “It’s going to open up the investigation on a very high note, and there will be criminal referrals in it.”

 

Keep in mind, the misuse of the FISA court is central to this entire governmental abuse of power. It can be weaponized to go after political enemies, as happened with Trump, and it can also be used to gather information on you and me. This investigation could lead far beyond the uncovering of political hanky-panky, although that is tremendously important. It could lead to an entire refiguring of the FISA process, maybe even an end to the FISA court.

Giuliani made the point that the FISA applications have to be taken very seriously, as they can’t be contested by the other side. “You just don’t sign those things cavalierly,” he said. The information in them must be verified. But he said it’s obvious in just the first couple of pages that the Steele “dossier” is just a pile of garbage and that Comey could have easily checked to see if there was truth to its major claims, such as that Michael Cohen went to Prague. Comey didn’t even bother to call the passport office. Because the “dossier” suited their purposes, they obviously didn’t care whether it was true or not. “We call that being ‘grossly negligent,’” Giuliani said. “You could not have read that as a trained professional and not become extremely suspicious. It reads like a lurid, silly novel.”

 

Aside: Something occurred to me, hearing about these findings. We’ve all read commentaries in which it was said that these people high up in the government “love” Hillary. Not just that they supported her, but that they literally love her. I didn’t doubt this, but it always made me think, “WHY would they love her? Most people just can’t warm up to her; that’s the main reason she just couldn’t pull it off in 2016. So, why on earth would they love her?” And now we know. The corruption we’re seeing at work in our bureaucracy is exactly the kind of nefarious activity that has accompanied Hillary her whole political life. Are you old enough to remember Craig Livingstone and the FBI files she had in the White House when Bill was President? Would Hillary think twice before spying on anyone who stood in her way? Heck, no. She’s cut from the same cloth as these people, and that’s why they love her.

 

Anyway, diGenova went on to acknowledge a hero in this story --- the one individual involved who is NOT a lawyer --- and that is Admiral Mike Rogers. As head of the National Security Agency, he was the one who discovered the illegal spying. He personally briefed the chief FISA judge about it and worked with her for months, diGenova said, to find out who was involved in committing fraud on the court. Thanks to the actions of Rogers, this has moved forward; in fact, Bill Barr has already been given the information about who lied to them.

 

I know a lot of people are getting “scandal fatigue” and don’t want to keep hearing about investigations. But what happened here in the Obama Justice Department is likely the biggest abuse of power we’ve seen in our lifetimes, and if allowed to continue, could change the very concept of what it means to be an American. If the highest levels of government can trample the constitutional process by which we elect a President, and step all over the President once that person is elected, imagine what it can do to YOU. Really, if the President of the United States can be steamrollered by powers within the government, then you’re not safe, either. You are in Big Brother world. That’s the world Hillary would have loved to be in charge of.

DiGenova wrote a great piece that delves into the machinations of Brennan, Clapper and (especially) Comey. It seems that many –- dare I say “countless”? –- FBI agents thought little of Comey; in fact, they called him “the Cardinal” because of his arrogance and moral pomposity. Here’s the link…

    Missing from the commentary is the ENABLING media ( print & video). Since they believed thier own internal polling and were more than 98% WRONG admitting that We made a mistake is not in thier DNA. The alternative was to double down and become Enablers to the false narrative knowing they have/had the POWER to hide or confuse the issue to the point of claiming 'plausible deniability' when the full deck is displayed for all to see. Even then some will continue to Hate the POTUS because that's just what Hater's do!

    I hope that each one involved will he held accountable (with jail time), not in vengeance but to set the example to future people who might be considering this kind of tactic. If they get away with just a slap on the wrist and public humiliation, this tactic will be repeated over and over again.

    Yes, everyone knows the fica judges were lied to or they should know it by now and the only way to stop it is for some to go to jail. What they did was, as far as I am concerned, is treason.

    Mike,
    I love your sense of humor! Yes, I'll watch the Ingraham Angle segment that you're on... not to watch you... well, maybe a little.

    This is jaw dropping information. I just want truth and justice to prevail. I have a nickname for Comey: Baloney Comey. What arrogance he, Brennan, Clapper, et al, have.

    They never thought she'd lose. But God anointed Donald Trump. After you & Ben Carson dropped out of the race I was at a loss. So I asked God who I should support and vote for. The next day I turned TV on and heard that Donald Trump had historically swept the primaries, then a large shadow of a hand with fingers curved over his head appeared next to him. I looked up and said, " You want me to support Trump. Okay, God " I did a lot of research about him and was pleasantly surprised.

    I told people about God's answer to me. Election night I didn't watch any returns, because I knew the outcome. I had also heard Lance Wallnau's prophecy about Trump #45/Cyrus Isaiah 45. How glorious!

    Looking forward to what God has in store next. Truth and Justice: 2 Swamp: 0

    They are after President Trump because they are afraid of the truth coming out and several people going to prison for a long long time . I believe God placed president Trump in office to clean up the mess our government is in and I pray every illegal act will be taken care of and that God heals our land . We all need to pray for revival in the U S A and other nations . God bless you and God bless America

    Brother Mike;

    Thank the Lord that He has begun "nudging" So Many different reporters, investigators - even here with FISA, Admiral Roger's(!) - to uncover serious evidence of (Previous) Governmental abuse! From Lois Lerner on, these illegal weaponizations have piled up

    Thank God that we now have a chance for true Justice to begin occurring!

    Innocent until proven guilty; the legal bedrock presumption of innocence should be and must applied to all Americans, no matter their standing, if we are to have trust in our justice system. It's not happening and only those most blindly partisan refuse to see that it's not. There is a reckoning coming and it will be shocking. In my mind, the most egregious crimes committed against the people should be addressed with a public hanging, but life without the possibility of parole will do. The President did not commit a conspiracy with a foreign power. We should all be greatly relieved that he did not. There seems to be be evidence that high ranking officials in the Obama administration may have committed multiple felonies. MAY HAVE. Presumption of innocence applies to them, too. Those calling for the President's tax returns are partisan hacks. There's no law requiring a President to disclose his tax returns. IF Congress passes such a law, it had better apply to ANY elected Federal official, not just to the President.

    "Show me the man, I'll show you the crime" is the Stalinist secret police tactic being used by the Democrats. That's why the demand for the President's tax returns; they're hoping they'll find SOMETHING amiss. Newsflash; the IRS has had the returns for years now and they know what's in them. If the IRS had found any evidence of a crime, you can bet your last dollar we would have heard of it on the Commie News Network 24/7/365.

You trying to get Senator Huckabee to notice how pompous you are so you can get him to repost your dribble? Fat chance! He might point you to the nearest safe space though, because he’s that kind of a guy, nice.

    My thoughts about Obama are not far from what looks like a guy that wanted to bring America down look at all the people he had in control of our most powerful agencies all of them plain and simple hated America. Why so much hate Americans were paying a lavish wage to protect the country so many benefits that it would make muti million $ person jealous. Again why so much hate. I can't believe it was all for money I believe they wanted complete control over the citizens lives, business, religion, and didn't want to see the pursuit of happiness. Remember Obama and his cartel would not say Islamic Terrorist, Iran's plane load of cash, even today Join Kerry is over there undermining the United States the Red Line in Syria, the secret help with Russia after he got elected( Uranium) Why does Obama hate America so much was he paid by Islamic Terrorist I believe Obama was radicalize by the Islamic Brotherhood that's where all his hate comes from. I have a suggestion for Obama and his cartel invite the Cartel over for a Jones Town experience save us a lot of money if the evidence is correct U earned it and deserve it.

    Mr. Huckabee, I would like to know if it is "at all possible" that President Obama could not have known about these FISA Warrants being obtained using a "fake dossier" by his own FBI? I wonder if Obama is going to be able to "slither" out of this fine mess? Those Democrats are like "Teflon", nothing ever "sticks". I hope The GOP doesn't drag their feet in the investigations of all of these, in that, the Democrats are notorious for destroying evidence!

    Governor, thanks for sharing this information. But, regardless how true and factual it is, it will not change anything because no one will be prosecuted. Operators in the deep-state (swamp) have a way of slipping through any sieve and getting by with their illegal activities. Sorry, but until the swamp, which includes a significant percentage of republicans and 99% of democrats, most of the federal judges and courts, and probably 60% of bureaucrats in virtual every government agency (including the FISA court), can be drained and eliminated, nothing will change.

    Am I cynical? You bet!!

    This is my third offering triggered by reading further comments. No one has mentioned Joe Biden. Where in God's name was this clown during all of this and where is he now? Shouldn't he be busy disavowing all of this or admitting he was a useful idiot and participant. He was busy enriching himself by using the office of VP. Instead of running for President, he should be looking out from behind bars. jm

    After reading an additional 70 or so readers I am thoroughly impressed with the common sense displayed in the comments. It seems a majority of readers have caught on to the fact that Obama should hang the highest. He was placed there by someone who doesn't like this country and was groomed and auditioned for the job much like the recent example with AOC. If obama were to be tried and convicted it is likely the country would be beset with riots or worse. For that reason, I would avoid actually executing him, but I think one of your readers had it spot on when he said GITMO would be a great solution. You have some very insightful followers. jack

    Just read the first 25 comments and the theme seems to be, throw all these treasonous, coup inspiring jerks in Prison. I think a few firing squads would also be in order (just kidding). I would however not be above lethal drugs. Unless Treason is treated as such, this can happen again. It seems that the perfect storm just occured where there were enough rogues in key positions to subvert the govt. Must be punished severely or like many of your contributors, I think America is over. jm
