Mueller goes fishing

April 15, 2018

It’s been reported that among the minnows hauled up in the government’s outrageous fishing expedition that seized President Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen’s privileged communications with his legal clients was the revelation that the National Enquirer paid for a salacious story about an alleged Trump love child and didn't run it. There were also reports that investigators might demand to know why the paper didn’t run it. Did Cohen pay them off? Is this an illegal in-kind contribution to help Trump win? Collusion!! Conspiracy!!! IMPEACHMENT!!!!

Well, two points: First of all, I know it’s considered as old fashioned as button shoes these days to mention the Bill of Rights, but there’s this clause right at the top of it that says the government has no say over what someone with a printing press does with it. It's no more the government's business to ask why the Enquirer didn't run a negative Trump story than it is to ask the Washington Post or the New Time Times why they run nothing but. But I guess if the government can ignore the 4th Amendment, it can ignore the 1st one, too.

Second, maybe the Enquirer didn’t run the story because they decided that the source, a NYC doorman, was not completely credible after his ex-wife described him as a pathological liar who “makes things up,” and who has claimed to have seen a chupacabra, Bigfoot and the ghost of a dead friend walking down the street.

Say, maybe Robert Mueller could expand his investigation to see if Bigfoot colluded with the Russians on behalf of Trump. He might have more luck finding evidence of Bigfoot existing than he’s found so far of Russian collusion.

    Now you know why they say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned! Hillary is hellbent on destroying the president who "stole" her dream. I have no doubt that she will be at the bottom of the "golden shower" and Russia collusion stories. Will she be made to pay for all the millions wasted on the investigation?
    And isnt it hypocritical for those who wanted her to be the "first woman" to become president when we're not supposed to distinguish between sexes? What if some guy decides that he's a woman, can he still claim to be running as the first woman president?
    I keep wondering when God will have had enough of all the nonsense and let the east and west coasts fall into the ocean likevhe destroyed sodom and Gomorrah...

    Governor Huckabee: I loved your show, and am so glad you are doing this posting of what is going on in our government. I'll be honest, though, the more I learn about what is going on in Washington, D.C. and think about what WAS once our great country, the most upset and discouraged I am. I look forward to when I can be with my Lord and Savior and not have to feel discouraged and vulnerable. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. PS: I LOVE your daughter.

    Thank you so much for getting the truth out there. It's such a rare thing these days to hear the truth. Muller is such a joke. They have found no cullusion so, Muller just makes stuff up or reaches for information that has nothing to do with proving his case. There's plenty of proof that Muller has colluded with Dems and Libs to waste tax payers money. So unbelievable the display of hate spewing from the other side because they didn't get their way in the election. If they just spent a quarter of the time really putting the American legal citizens first they might actually get things done. As it is they don't deserve to get paid because they are doing nothing but tearing this country apart. I get so angry!

    I am so tired of all the negativity against president Trump. And WHO cares who he sleeps or slept with! We did not care who JFK slept with.

    Gov. Huckabee great show on TBN. Governor joking aside, "How Does President Trump or any President get rid of a SPECIAL PROSECUTOR" . If this is supposedly a temporary government appointment, How do you end this position? Forget getting rid of MUELLER, How does one get rid of the Army of Lawyers he has hired? Colonscopy?
