Hugh Hewitt: The American People Deserve to Know

Attorney General William Barr should appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden’s financial dealings and any involvement of former Vice President Joe Biden—and Barr should do so immediately, before the election, pursuant to the regulations that govern the Department of Justice and special counsels.

If the emails on Hunter Biden’s computers are found to be genuine, there appears to be the basis for a criminal investigation—one that could be conducted with dispatch—about whether Joe Biden profited from his son’s activity and failed to report it, whether they failed to register as agents of a foreign power. Whatever the election results on November the 3rd—Biden or Trump— the Department will face an inevitable conflict in conducting any inquiry into the so-called “laptop from hell”—and thus the need to establish a special counsel now.

So set up a special counsel from outside the beltway—and give him or her the same resources Robert Mueller had, and as broad a writ to investigate the Bidens as Mueller received for his “Trump Hunt.”

Let’s find out what happened.

Then the American people can trust the end result.

Lanhee Chen: After Mueller: A Look at the 2020 Election

President Trump faces a much clearer pathway to reelection in 2020 now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s found no evidence that the President or the Trump campaign colluded with Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election.

President Trump’s task ahead is to focus his reelection effort on the reasons why voters should give him a second term in office.  And while Democrats continue to obsess over Trump and his alleged misdeeds, it’s up to the President and his team to focus instead on the ways in which they’ve improved the livelihoods of the American people with tangible policy accomplishments.

The President spearheaded tax cuts that have helped many Americans keep more of their hard-earned money; his Administration has cut regulatory burdens and red tape to spur economic growth; and he has appointed judges to federal courts who respect the rule of law and the Constitution.

If President Trump can keep his rhetoric—and his focus—on touting these accomplishments, he’ll go a long way toward winning four more years in the Oval Office.

Medved: It’s a Wonderful Trump Spoof Raises a Serious Question


Saturday Night Live offered a pre-Christmas spoof called “It’s a Wonderful Trump,” in which their presidential impersonator gets a glimpse of how life would be different if he’d lost the election.

The skit proved only intermittently entertaining, but it suggests a response to those who blame Trump alone for our angry antagonisms. 

Imagine that Hillary won: would America be a model of harmony and civility? We’d still disagree bitterly on immigration, taxes, trade, race relations and foreign policy. 

In fact, President Hillary might have gotten her very own special prosecutor, just as Reagan, her husband and Trump did. With Congressional Republicans pushing hard to probe Uranium One, e-mails, and the Clinton Foundation, Robert Mueller might have been tapped to lead a very different investigation. 

Sure, President Trump could do more to bring the country together. But you can’t explain our present polarization as the work of a single individual.

Opioids Tariffs

Townhall Review — December 09, 2017

Hugh Hewitt: Our Depleted Judiciary

U.S. Senate

It has been rumored in Washington that President Trump may fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Although this is possible, it would be ill advised on the part of the president. If he and his staff are indeed innocent and have not colluded with the Russians (and there is no evidence to date that they have), then this will be over.

If, on the other hand, the president chooses to fire Mueller, he should expect his administration to undergo extraordinary stresses and his momentum to vanish over night.

Republicans have enough problems on their hands. There are 20 vacancies on the circuit court of appeals and over 100 vacancies on the lower courts for which there has not been a nomination put forward yet. This is unacceptable. It’s a failure of governance.

Republicans don’t need another Saturday Night Massacre 2.0 and firing Robert Mueller would be just that. The Trump administration should instead focus on putting forward originalist nominees for the depleted judiciary.
