When the White House told us that ’24 day national security adviser Mike Flynn was fired because he lied to Mike Pence,’ not a single intelligent American believed it; the Trump administration survives by lying constantly.
In March, on FOX Noise, Pence lied to the American people. The truth is that he was the only individual who vetted Mike Flynn. With every lie the Trump administration proves that the Russian connection has existed for a long time, and continues today.
BAIER: “Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has filed with the Department of Justice as a foreign agent for making more than $500,000 as a lobbyist, essentially, for Turkey. Your reaction to that, considering that — doesn’t that mean, Mr. Vice President, that even if he didn’t lie to you about what the Russian ambassador said or didn’t say, that you would have had to fire him anyway?”
PENCE: “Let me say, hearing that story today was the first I heard of it. And I fully support the decision that President Trump made to ask for General Flynn’s resignation.”
BAIER: “You’re disappointed by the story?”
PENCE: “First I heard of it, and I think it is an affirmation of the President’s decision to ask General Flynn to resign.”
What we have is the most dishonest and corrupt administration in 240 years. If you’re a history buff, you know about past corruption in the White House, In recent times these include those of Ronald Reagan; Iran-Contra; and Richard Nixon; Watergate. Prior to the 1980’s the administrations of Warren G. Harding; Teapot Dome; Ulysses S. Grant; the Whiskey Ring and the Credit Mobilier scandal; and Andrew Jackson for his selection of appointees and cabinet posts based on what the individuals had done to assist the president’s election effort.
Nearly all of the offenses committed by past presidents have already been committed by the Trump administration. Trump has spent approximately $30 million of taxpayer money for his personal use in just over 100 days. He is proposing a tax plan which would benefit himself and his family and harm the majority of the American people. His selections for advisers and his cabinet were all based on support during the election; both verbally and monetarily; mimicking Andrew Jackson.
Ethics violations will likely force the impeachment of Donnie boy. Pence should be impeached now. His lie about Flynn is egregious, and is a direct violation of the vetting process. There is absolutely no doubt that Pence knew about Flynn’s work for Turkey, and his paid speeches by Russian entities.
Welcome to the new and degenerating United States of America.
