DAILY BIBLE VERSE

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Matthew 28:18


Why is Durham taking so long? HERE'S THE ANSWER

By Mike Huckabee

The fact that Special Counsel John Durham would release 27 pages of detailed narrative to indict one measly person on one count of making a false statement to the FBI got us wondering immediately what his purpose might have been. We’re not attorneys, but over the next couple of days, some of our favorite legal minds noticed the same thing.

Over the years, you and I have learned not to expect much in the way of justice from the “Justice” Department --- especially now, with an obvious political hack like Merrick Garland running it --- but the indictment of this Clinton attorney might be the harbinger of bigger things to come. It is likely that Hillary will escape jail once again, as she did even after using a private server to circumvent FOIA requests and destroying evidence with BleachBit and hammers, but remember: even though Nixon escaped legal accountability in the Watergate scandal, the whole story did come out. What we’re looking at is probably another situation like that.

For now, many thanks to Dan Bongino for pointing us to a superb analysis of Sussmann’s indictment on SUBSTACK by Shipwreckedcrew’s Port-O-Call. This is long but important to read.

https://shipwreckedcrew.substack.com/p/the-sussmann-indictment-reads-like

“The Sussmann indictment reads like overt acts in furtherance of a conspiracy,” he writes, “because that’s what it is.”

He explains that the indictment on that one charge is contained in just one paragraph, Paragraph 46, which reads, “On or about September 19, 2016, within the District of Columbia, MICHAEL A. SUSSMANN, the defendant, did willingly and knowingly make a materially false, fictitious and false statement or representation in a matter before the jurisdiction of the executive branch of the Government of the United States, to wit, on or about September 19, 2016, the defendant stated to the General Counsel of the FBI that he was not acting on behalf of any client in conveying particular allegations concerning a Presidential candidate, when in truth, and in fact, and as the defendant well knew, he was acting on behalf of specific clients, namely – Tech Executive 1 and the Clinton campaign.”

That’s it. That’s what he stands accused of. What are all those other pages for? A “false statement” charge doesn’t require all that narrative. What Durham filed is called a “speaking indictment,” which “discloses information in a public document that would not otherwise be known if the indictment set forth only facts needed to meet the requirements of due process.”

“Shipwrecked” says, “In over 30 years of practice as both a federal prosecutor and a defense attorney specializing in federal cases, I’ve never before seen anything remotely resembling the Sussmann indictment in a single ‘false statement’ case.”

He writes that the facts Durham has alleged probably have at least a dozen “strings” hanging off them. Some of these are legal and others are “more in the ‘court of public opinion.’” (See Nixon, above.)

Those who are understandably cynical about the process as it typically applies to Hillary & Co. and dismayed at the length of time Durham has taken to come up with this one indictment should definitely read this analysis. “Shipwrecked” explains why it has taken as long as it has, notably regarding Durham’s search for source materials. Some materials he needed to look at could only be sought by grand jury subpoena if they were over six months old. Anything more recent needed “probable cause.”

So, what materials was Durham waiting on? At least some of them must have been billing records for Perkins Coie, some of which showed Sussmann billing Hillary’s campaign for his work relating to the phony Alfa Bank story. These were absolutely key to the indictment on the false statement. One might imagine that even after being hit with the grand jury subpoena, Perkins Coie put up a huge fight over turning over that information, as it involves attorney-client communications and attorney work product information, both of which would typically be shielded from disclosure to a grand jury.

Perhaps Durham made it clear to Perkins Coie that they themselves could be held criminally liable for their attorney’s misconduct, and that they’d better darn well cooperate.

But even if they did, attorney-client privilege applies to clients as well, which in this case include the DNC, the Clinton campaign and “Tech Executive 1.” They would have had to waive THEIR privilege for some reason. What might that reason be? This situation suggests to me that they might face some pretty fierce legal jeopardy themselves --- that they knew it could be even worse for them if they didn’t cooperate. This is one area that I hope legal experts like "Shipwrecked" will explore in detail.

He does note something called “the crime-fraud exception,” which applies when the normally privileged communications relate to a fraud that is currently occurring or might be contemplated by THE CLIENT (as opposed to the law firm) in the future. That would make sense to me, since clients like the DNC and Hillary can’t go one day without contemplating more fraud. Perhaps it had something to do with their ongoing anti-Trump activities after he was in office.

But, anyway, if you’ve been wondering, “Why is Durham taking SO LONG?,” this legal fight is one reason why.

Something else of interest: we recently reported that Marc Elias had left Perkins Coie to open his own separate firm dedicated to the Dark Art of getting more Democrats elected to office and furthering the progressive agenda. Sussmann was gone, too, on leave until resigning the day of his indictment. As “Shipwrecked” explains, catapulting these two partners might have been one way that Perkins Coie showed its willingness to cooperate with investigators to save its own sorry hide.

The reason we haven’t known about this legal fight is that Durham apparently didn’t take it before a DC grand jury. He could keep it quiet by going to any district where he had a grand jury convened. As “Shipwrecked” points out, disputes over the production of documents to a federal grand jury typically take place behind closed doors –- or, in the age of COVID, on a private Zoom call; no travel required –- and are not part of the public docket. All references to the dispute would be sealed,

I highly recommend this article, as it’s very clearly written for the non-lawyer and brings up a number of considerations we haven’t seen anywhere else. This apparently is the first installment of a series; we’re grateful for the insight and eagerly anticipate the next one. The writer mentions as a tease that another “scene of the crime” (that’s my phraseology) mentioned in the indictment as being outside the District of Columbia, is likely the CIA (“Agency -2”), headquartered in Langley, Virginia. So this gets more interesting all the time.

LEAVE ME A COMMENT HERE, I READ THEM!


Reader comment re: Russia Hoax reporting

By Mike Huckabee

From Betty F.:

You are one of the few people I still have trust and respect for. I have prayed for someone to have the integrity and tenacity to expose the truth about this matter and bring those who are guilty to justice. Thank you for following this investigation and keeping ‘we the people’ informed. May God continue to guide you and bless you.


In honor of the memory of Col. Dwight E. Engle

By Mike Huckabee

Please join me in expressing gratitude to a great American patriot who passed away on Friday, September 17. Col. Dwight E. Engle, a native Kansan and veteran of the Air Force with 20-plus years of service, was named after President and Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower. As a staunch conservative and strong supporter of President Trump, he had expressed dismay at the direction our Great Nation is headed under the current administration. Be mindful that as we fight the good fight to get America back on the right path, we are honoring Col. Engle and all those like him who served our country and cared deeply for its future. They have passed the torch to us. Please keep Dwight and his family in your prayers today.


President Biden addresses the UN

By Mike Huckabee

Tuesday, President Biden addressed the UN General Assembly, but his speech was so detached from reality that he might as well have been speaking to the United Federation of Planets. Redstate.com has a good recap complete with video clips.

https://redstate.com/bonchie/2021/09/21/joe-bidens-speech-at-the-un-features-senility-and-highly-destructive-policies-n446009

Biden didn’t mention the border crisis at all. His mention of Afghanistan was to congratulate himself for America no longer being at war (thanks to his supercharging the Taliban, it’s likely to be just a pause before the storm.) He talked about “accountability” over COVID, but didn’t mention China. He announced his intention to rejoin the UN Human Rights Council, which Trump pulled out of because it’s filled with nations that spit on human rights, like China, Cuba, Russia, Somalia, Venezuela and Pakistan. He claimed he’d spent the past months “rebuilding our alliances” (our allies are so furious at him that Britain’s Parliament voted to censure him and France recalled its ambassador.)

He also cited the importance of the UN Declaration of Human Rights in protecting rights from being “trampled and twisted in the pursuit of naked political power,” which is a pretty good description of what he’s been doing to Americans’ Constitutional rights from the moment he took office. And at one point, he mistakenly referred to the United Nations as the “United States.” I suspect that he’d like to turn the USA into the UN, but this is the first time he’s let it slip out loud.

Here’s a complete transcript if you’re so inclined:

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/full-transcript-biden-addresses-76th-un-general-assembly/ar-AAOFWZn

Considering President Biden’s performance at the UN, and frankly, any appearances recently, it’s no surprise that White House staff are frantic to keep him from answering any questions from the press. But they’re taking it so far that even the normally sycophantic White House Press Corps lodged a formal complaint Tuesday after Biden’s “press conference” with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/reporters-slam-white-house-aides-shouting-down-press-pool-questions

After Johnson took a few questions from British reporters, White House staffers suddenly interrupted as reporters tried to question Biden and started shouting at reporters to clear the room. A reporter who shouted a question about the border said he thought Biden said something in reply, but with all the noise, Biden’s facemask and his being led away, whatever he said was indecipherable. I have a feeling it would have been equally indecipherable if he’d been standing at a podium at the UN. His staffers know that, hence the panicked room-clearing.


Pelosi caves to anti-Israel socialists

By Mike Huckabee

In a move that infuriated both Republicans and moderate Democrats, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi caved in to the anti-Semitic socialists of “The Squad” and cut $1 billion in funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system from a short-term government funding bill. Pelosi can lose only a few votes or the bill won’t pass, since Republicans unanimously oppose the bill because they’re fighting over raising the federal debt limit.

https://nypost.com/2021/09/21/aoc-squad-force-dems-to-cut-1b-for-iron-dome-from-spending-bill/

I can understand why someone might oppose the entire bill on general principle, but why would anyone publicly hold it hostage over just one provision: not funding Israel’s defense from terrorist missiles? Note that this wasn’t new or increased spending. It was standard support for our closest ally for a purely defensive weapons system that stops missiles fired by Hamas terrorists (4400 just last spring) from killing innocent Israeli men, women and children. Why would US Congress members choose to take a hard stand on the side of terrorists who are trying to kill Jews? Well, read some of their previous comments, and I think you’ll figure it out.

Other Democrats say the funding will be added to a larger defense bill or introduced as a stand-alone measure, and it should pass with bipartisan support. But the Squad’s opposition to that one issue tells us a lot about what we’re dealing with from them. Michigan Democrat Rep. Elissa Slotkin said the removal of the funding was “devoid of substance and irresponsible.” That’s a pretty good description of the entire Squad.

Facebook and Instagram now define doctors and nurses speaking candidly about what they’re personally dealing with in the areas of COVID and adverse vaccine reactions as “misinformation” that must be censored.

Pelosi, not big in England

By Mike Huckabee

Last weekend, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tried taking her Trump-bashing on tour to England. It did not go well.

    First time America hasn't been at war for 20 years?? My only guess is that Mr. Biden has been sleeping through the President's Daily Briefing. Aside from those left behind in Afghanistan by Joe Biden, who are running or fighting for their very lives. We have military all over the world conducting Special Operations. In Nigeria our troops along with the Brits are fighting a guerrilla warfare against Boko Haram which is a radical Muslim group. And the classified list goes on and on. We have troops in several African nations where we are supporting local military's with training, weapons and close combat support. The Middle East it's easier to list countries where we are not there with troops. We have troops in South America fighting the war on drugs.

    I saw the Veritas video. Groups like this keep the left jumping. No red to continue taking the battle to the enemy.
    The Squad are fronts for the Red-Green alliance. A Marxist- Muslim alliance that controls Minnesota. Closely connected with other ani-Jewish groups in DC. Not surprised because the Qu'ran teaches death to Jews and Christians.
    The death cult controlling Congress is showing its face. Not a pretty one
    Now Blue state AGs attempting to support a New York anti- gun law. They truly believe and act as if they are "god's". That is pure Marxism.
    Now that sleepy has been outed as a dying puppet I suspect a brewing battle in the left.
    The UN long ago ceded to Communism and Islam. Only a front for dying nations to blackmail the USA to support the rulers.
    And now the Navy Seals will lose about 25 percent of their members and the Marines about 40 per cent as the military will not grant any religious exemptions. Same here in Washington state. The governor has ordered the jab or else. Leaving us with nothing but citizen- soldiers. Armed and in prayer. It looks like there will be only government controlled elections like Stalin had. Russia has still not recovered from 70 years of Communist rule

    I just viewed Sidney Powell's website ([email protected]) and the report by Project Veritas from a Federal Government whistleblower on how the Government is not reporting the adverse side effects from the COVID vaccine. It breaks my heart on the corruption that is happening right under our noses and people are dying under Biden's administration and direction. God bless you for also exposing this evil in your newsletter.

    Does anyone trust Biden or Harris with anything concerning the U S? This administration is built to empower itself with the complete control of all aspects of American society and the lives of its population that one reason 19 gop senators are RINOS they want to be gods forget the slogan One Nation under God they all want to replace the nations God with themselves
