Huckabee: ship to ‘shut up’ if he is not evidence of collusion

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is the last Republican to strike back at Rep. Adam Schiff. On “The Todd Starnes Show,” Huckabee said on Wednesday that if the California Democrat has evidence of collusion, he needs to show it or shut up.

“You still have people like Adam ship out of there and say, we have evidence of the collusion. Also, if you do, bring it to the Capitol steps, and laid it out, and let the rest of us see. If not, shut up, because we said it sick and tired of” Huckabee. “Müller could not find, that he makes 30 million US dollars,19 highly partisan Democrat lawyers, and an unlimited number of coercive measures in the survey of 500 witnesses. I’m pretty sure that Adam Schiff is not something that Mueller did.”


For two years, ship, house Intelligence Committee chairman, appeared on every talk-and-late-night-show-sounding ominous warnings about what could find special counsel Robert Müller, President Trump. But Müller found no coordination or conspiracy with trump, his campaign and the Russian government, the Ministry of justice said Sunday. This triggered angry GOP calls for the California Democrat to resign from the Committee or the Congress as a trump administration went on the offensive, with the 2020 elections approach.

“There are a lot of people out there who have done some very bad things, very bad things, I would say traitorous things against our country,” Trump said Monday in the Oval Office, without elaborating. “These people are sure to be seen.”


Regardless of the type of investigation that the President has in mind for “the people,” the ship appears at the top of the list.

Ship, a lawyer, served in Congress since 2001, ranged widely and frequently over the media landscape in the interviews about the Mueller investigation. In his sober, mild-mannered style, the ship came at times close to sound like he believed Trump had broken the law, Republicans said.

More than any other example, the Republicans in 2017 appearance on MSNBC, in the ship said and showed to a March, “the relations between Russia and the trump staff is more than circumstantial evidence now”.

In December of the same year, the ship, said on CNN: “to help The Russians offered, the campaign accepted the help. The Russians gave help, and the President has to help. This is pretty damning, whether it is proof beyond a reasonable doubt of the conspiracy, or not.”

And in may of last year, the ship, told ABC that the Russian trolling of the Democratic National Committee E-Mails, is “like Watergate in the sense that you had a break in of the Democratic headquarters, in this case, a virtual, not a physical break-in, and you had a President as part of a cover-up,” he said. The ship later said that the Russia-investigation “in size and scope, probably about Watergate.”


The ship was defiant on Monday, again his claim that the evidence of collusion is in “plain sight repeated”. He said he does not accept Mueller’s conclusion that he could prove a criminal conspiracy with Russia, but said that his Committee is going to go the investigative work.

“For whatever reason, over the last year and a half, the President viewed me as a threat,” he told The Associated Press. “His allies in Congress have also comes to his assistance in the attack on me. It comes with the job, and I take it as a sign of the effectiveness that you feel the need to go to me.”

The ship is far from the only Democrat to use provocative rhetoric about Trump and his campaign. But it was his words were always the most attention of Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee, the featured ship featured prominently on the lists of the Democrats, who had publicly suggested a connection between trump and his 2016 campaign, and Russia.
