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!

    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?

    It is time to move on from attempting to bringing down President Trump, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. It is time for Trump to do his job without these unethical people constantly embarding his time. Trump has done for our country more than anyone in the last few years. If a person loves their country they will do all they can to back the decisions of our PRESIDENT. Trump please continue to follow GOD'S word and you will prosper. Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgement you shall condemn LORD, and their Righteousness is on Me, says the LORD.

    Comey's interview was eloquent and on point with all of his commentary. Very well spoken, polished and believable. I would like to see Trump to do an hour interview and string two intelligent sentences together. The fact that people still believe anything that comes out of Trump's mouth amazes me. I can understand people not liking the direction the country was going in and voting for Trump. What I cannot fathom is that after 15 months of Trump's constant lying and his asinine denials by calling everything revealed about him as fake news you people continue to support him. You people truly are deplorables who should untether your trailers and move them to Kansas' tornado alley. Be gone with you. You have no power here.

    It is astounding that these clowns are allowed to expand their "investigation" as they are! Surely if they dig deeper, they may find that Mr. Trump has a traffic violation in his past -- or heaven forbid, one of his drivers and that has been covered! Is this going to be extended to President Trump's parents?? HIs sons and (grandsons) have already been involved so if not, why not? Shoot, hr may have been involved as a teen in molesting a neighbor's dog or somewhat. They need to have a look in all his closets while they're at it!!

    I believe the raid on Cohen was outrageous. That said, I've been a Trump supporter all along, feeling that Hillary was a cliff that would kill the Constitution. But. The tax reform bill will prove to be a disaster for seniors. Its cost me many helpful deductions and an additional $2500 in taxes for 2017 in 2018 already. Plus I live in Illinois which is at war with its citizens who remain. Why do we vote for representation that doesn't represent? Isn't that why our ancestors fled England? Nobody mentions the tax implications for seniors! I approve of funding the military and lowering the corporate tax, but the offset should have been kicking out the outrageous waste spending to other countries and funding of programs that are not the business of government.

    Every move made by Mueller and Rosenstein is on the cable news channels. No wider audience to any event ever in the history of man. Yet they violate the Constitution and other collatetal laws with impunity daily. Are they mad or just know nothing will ever be done about it.

    My first thought when you wrote the Enquirer wouldn't print it was "Wow! It must be such blatant lies even they could see it!" Then I read the next page. Anyway, how would any of this have anything to do with "Russia" - the one reason Mueller is a special prosecutor? Are there no laws to reign him in to the subject?!

    Gov Huckabee - I can't tell you how much I admire your daughter and how's she's handling her position with the WH. You must be proud. As for Mueller, feels like he's on the take. He's been given zero boundaries and seems bent to find something collusion or not. I'm aware there are a lot of legal boundaries and exceptions, but it seems the "Rule of Law" isnt applied equally. The only collusion I see is with Hillary and now the DOJ and FBI to make sure she is free to go. I'm fed up with the whole lot of them and I'm tired of the story line too. Lots of lips moving, but no action taken. Conservatives with integrity are nowhere to be found. Feeling hopeless out here.

    Congressional testimony by the outgoing FBI Director Mueller in 2013 shows the consequences of Obama’s “Outreach” program, whereby the massive capture of all our phone calls and e-mails exempts specifically American mosques, their mullahs and imams, and their membership from such surveillance. That is how, for example, the surveillance of the two Boston Marathon jihadist bombers was stopped back in 2011 – and these murderers were left in peace to plan and execute their terrorist attack from their local mosque. That jihadist murder was followed by deadly attacks in Fort Hood, Chattanooga, San Bernardino, Orlando, New York, New Jersey, Minnesota, Washington State – so far.

    Why is it Republicans like Gramhm when there being interviewed on national TV don’t stop the nonsense. Collusion is NOT a crime!! Why is that not talked about? Gramhm in the interview said things like “ if they find no collusion” etc. ITS NOT A CRIME....why didn’t that message ever get out there by the REPUBLICANS!! This country is DOOMED! Why, when we control the House, Senate and Presidency do we have this witchhunt going on to me is a shame.

    WHAT? WE THE PEOPLE have a BILL OF RIGHTS? REALLY? according to the last 2 years, only the DNC/DEMOC RATS are protected. everyone else is a FAIR GAME TARGET for ANY MEANS POSSIBLE attacks, using the UNBIASED MEDIA channels, for clarification & the UNBIASED FBI to find the evidence of collusion. if the TRUMP IMPEACHMENT becomes a reality, because of the DC SWAMP RATS, we need to DEMAND a NEW FULL CLINTON & FRIENDS SPECIAL PROSECUTOR, just to show WE THE PEOPLE, that we still have a FAIR AND BALANCED JUDICIAL SYSTEM. just because JAMES COMEY FAILED to do his sworn duty, does not mean the story ends there. yes, i am a senior citizen & i know i will be dead and gone long before that idea every sees the light of day.

    It was Lavrenti Beria of the old OGPU who told Stalin - " Show me the man and I'll show you the crime ". While tongue-in-cheek comments seem to be held to a high standard of truth these days, I persist in my belief that if someone asks you a stupid question, they deserve a stupid answer...at which point, I suppose, if the FBI is the one asking, I'm a felon. After Woodward and Bernstein, few journalists try and present a balanced portrayal of an issue - they want scalps. I have absolutely no interest in Trumps sex life, and find it hard to imagine why they are investigating old affairs - unless they hope to catch someone in a lie that they fomented with ridiculous questioning. Beware overly zealous prosecutors - look what Janet Reno did to all those people in Waco, instead of just waiting in town for Koresh to show up ;-} Quid custodiet ipsos hoseheads ? ;-}

    I wish someone would tell me exactly what Trump has done to deserve these nonstop attacks by the deep state Gestapo.

  • GUILLERMO CASTRO

    Firstly I will start off with saying that I really enjoy reading your commentary. Now to Mueller, Stormy Daniel’s and the rest of this nonsense. What our current president did in 2006 is really irrelevant to the election of 2016. Donald Trump was not elected based on his moral fiber. We elected a president to make decisions for the Americans who have not been heard since Reagan was in office. Our last president said that manufacturing jobs were gone and never coming back, but now they’re back and yet we choose to cover an affair that then Actor/businessman Donald Trump had. We have a booming economy, but choose to cover Russian meddling in our election. Did the Russians post negative ads about Hillary Clinton? Yes, no or maybe so. Hillary didn’t lose the election because of the Russians, she lost it because she didn’t care about the coal miner, or the auto worker or the the rest of our middle class. A billionaire seemed to understand what middle America was dealing with. Last week China agreed to level the trade deficit and we covered it for about a minute. Mexico and Canada are going to renegotiate NAFTA and yet here we sit covering Robert Muellers monumental waste of of taxpayers money!

When will Hillary Lynch McCabe Comet or any of the others be brought to justice. They need to stop with the Trump witch hunt. Can you imagine the uproar if we had done this to Obama. Keep up the good work and also tell your daughter Sarah she is the best press secretary ever. I love her wit (just like her father) and her quick come backs to the press. God Bless your family.

    Hi Governor Huckabee

    Well here we are again. Mueller's team has unconstitutionally confiscated information from President Trump's private attorney and the salacious information gets leaked to outside MSM. This is highly illegally done, and Mueller should be fired immediately. A love child has nothing to do with finding information on Russian collusion in the 2016 election, but who's listening anyway..,right? They're determined to take out the President and will stop at nothing.
    I heard articles of impeachment are being compiled against Rosenstein. For the good of the country, Jeff Sessions should resign, and put in place a good AG, who can obliterate this witch hunt. How about Sebastian Gorka? He's very loyal to the President and a fireball. So could Ted Cruz but don't know if he'd do it. Trey Gowdy is another possibility. So is Mike Lee. So is Louis Gohmert. So is Governor Huckabee (should have listed you first).
