‘Hypocrite’ Mike Pence Slammed For Tweet Supporting Gay Olympic Athlete”


HUFFINGTON POST

“Vice President Mike Pence is being slammed as a “hypocrite” for sending a tweet in support of openly gay U.S. Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon on Wednesday.

Rippon made headlines when he criticized Pence’s longtime hostility toward gay rights issues and has reportedly refused a meeting with the vice president.  However, on Thursday Rippon clarified that he would be willing to meet Pence for an “open conversation,” but only after the Olympics had concluded.” MORE

“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

Donald Trump Jr. would not tell House investigators Wednesday what he and his father discussed after reports surfaced about a June 2016 meeting he had in Trump Tower with Russians, citing attorney-client privilege because of the presence of attorneys during the exchange with his father.

President Donald Trump and his son had a conversation this summer after Trump Jr. produced emails about his involvement in the Trump Tower meeting, according to Rep. Adam Schiff, a California Democrat and the committee’s ranking member who attended the Wednesday session. At the classified hearing, Trump Jr. acknowledged speaking with senior White House aide Hope Hicks to help craft a response to the initial reports, sources said.

“As the White House contends with questions about who knew about former national security adviser Michael Flynn lying to the FBI, people close to Vice President Mike Pence are trying to make clear that President Donald Trump’s No. 2 knew nothing at all.

He was at a homeless shelter in Indiana, clad in an apron and doling out hot meals, the day last December when Egypt submitted a U.N. resolution that drew Flynn and Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner into international back-channel dealing.” MORE
