“Rachel Maddow Says What Others Won’t: Mike Pence Is In Really Big Trouble For The Russia Scandal”


POLITICUS USA

“Maddow said, “I’ll leave you with this, Mike Pence is in trouble. It is possible that the Vice President did nothing wrong, nothing criminal, but he really has been left out in the cold by the White House when it comes to the Michael Flynn story and Michael Flynn’s guilty plea. The White House is still telling a story about how and why and when Mike Flynn was fired. A story that all defends on this account by and about the vice president that is now disproven. That doesn’t make any sense. And they are trying, I guess, to stick with this thing but really do need a new account now of how Michael Flynn was fired and why because the old one can no longer be operative. What had been their operative explanation for why Flynn was fired is the White House was shocked, shocked to learn Mike Flynn had lied to vice president Mike pence about his conversations with the Russian government.” MORE

NBC News reported, “Ventura said the Trumps never asked about his clients, the people who were buying the condo units, and he never told them.
