For whereas now, it’s been understood that Mike Pence, whether or not he performed a task in the unique Trump-Russia scandal or not, has no less than been lower than truthful about it.
Back in early 2017, Pence knowledgeable the media that he was unaware Trump’s National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was concerned in unlawful Russian exercise, however the fact of the matter is that Democrats despatched him a letter two months earlier than that telling him about it.
Also, whenever you pair that with the truth that the Trump transition staff – ran by Pence, no much less – knew about Flynn’s Russian antics…nicely, it’s not onerous to place the items collectively.
However, extra not too long ago, it seems issues have taken a fair stranger flip. Not way back, it was reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been in possession of all of the Trump transition staff e-mails for a number of months. What does that imply precisely? It means Mueller is already absolutely conscious of what Pence knew about Flynn and Russia, which suggests if Pence knew of a felony and didn’t report it, or conspired to impede justice by hiding the Flynn-Russia scandal, he’s toast.
Well, he could possibly be, besides the House Intelligence Committee can also be speaking about those self same transition staff e-mails, and their model is alleged to be void of Pence’s title:
“Investigators on the House Intelligence Committee have pored over thousands of emails from the Trump transition team but can’t find Pence’s name in any of them, even though he led the transition, said a Democrat familiar with the House’s Russia probe. The Democrat was not authorized to detail private documents and spoke on condition of anonymity.”
Hmmm. You know, that may probably carry extra weight if we weren’t speaking concerning the very House Intelligence Committee that simply pulled the ridiculous Devin Nunes memo stunt in order to get Donald Trump off the hook, which didn’t work.
Something about it simply appears extraordinarily fishy. A brand new stunt to guard Mike Pence, maybe? Or might or not it’s that Pence, in an effort to cowl his personal tracks in the course of the transition, instructed the staff to by no means embody his title?
Either manner, it doesn’t look good for him.
