Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas Governor and presidential candidate, says the one person who has escaped blame for the whole Russia collusion fiasco is former President Barack Obama.
“Who was in charge of the government when all these things happened? Who was running the government?” Huckabee asked on “Fox & Friends” on Monday.
“Prior to the election, it was not Donald Trump. It was not Corey Lewandowski. It was not Paul Manafort.
“It was none of these people. It was Barack Obama, Susan Rice. It was James clapper, John Brennan. It was Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, they were the ones in government,” he said.
“Donald Trump had zero power. Why aren’t we hearing the fact that when everything happened, the supposed Russia collusion, these were the people who were supposed to be protecting America and they were asleep at the switch?
“And if it happened, it happened because they let it happen. And they weren’t competent enough to stop it.”
Democrats should come forward with any additional evidence on the issue, or else move on entirely, Huckabee said.
“They need to be blaring out on loud speakers the song from Elsa in ‘Frozen:’ ‘Let it go. Let it go.’ They’re not going to do that. I mean, it’s evident by the things they’ve been saying over the past 24 hours,” he said.
“And frankly, I’m stunned by both the media and the Democrats who don’t have even the courtesy of acknowledging that this is a president who has been falsely accused, as well as the people around him. For two years, they have relentlessly attacked him and accused him.
“And here’s a little word to Adam the Schiff: Adam, you’ve been saying you’ve got evidence. Show up with a box full of it and empty it out on the Capitol steps, or shut the heck up.
“Let Lindsay Graham and the Senate Judiciary committee go after…who were the conspirators…who were the ones who inside the Department of Justice and FBI actually conspired to bring down this president, and chase them to justice,” Huckabee declared.
