    Default ‘increasingly implausible’ excuses coming from Mike Pence and Don Jr.

    Former FBI special agent Asha Rangappa thinks that Vice President Mike Pence’s story surrounding retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn “sounds suspicious.”

    Pence claimed that he didn’t know that Flynn was doing outreach to the Russians. Flynn was fired as Trump’s national security adviser early this year after it was alleged that he misled Pence. However, Rangappa, who now teaches at Yale University on policy and national security issues, noted that the timelines don’t work out in Pence’s favor.

    “Here’s why it’s problematic either way,” Rangappa said, with regard to Pence knowing or not knowing. “The sanctions conversations were a matter of normal, incoming transition policy. If that’s true, Vice President Pence is the head of the transition team and he’s the incoming vice president. So, you would think he would know about policy discussions taking place. So, if he didn’t know, then something about those conversations, if he’s kept in the dark, something about those conversations was just not right.”https://www.rawstory.com/2017/12/ex-...ce-and-don-jr/

    So the VP is going to be another member of the Administration to suddenly suffer from amnesia, or, being the head of the transition team, he is incompetent, either way he doesn't come out looking good

    Tell that to Don Jr who currently is sweating out a close door examination by the House's investigating Committee, and the House is a Republican entity

    Pence hasn't had the scrutiny to date, that the rest of the crime family has, but to be sure, he is just as dirty as they are.

    I'm beginning to get the sneaking suspicion that a significant portion of the GOP is working for the Kremlin along with Trump and yis minions.

    The Kremlin probably has so much dirt on them, they've likely been controlling several GOP leaders for years.

    Just waiting to get the right puppet in the WH so they can bring down the country without firing a shot.

    Junior testified today. He had the typical memory problems, but when cornered, claimed lawyer/client privilege. There was a lawyer in the room. not his. Privilege does not exist if there are others in the room. But he got away with it in a Republican run investigation, so nothing will be discovered.

    is he sweating as badly as you, as you crouch by the keyhole of that closed door trying to whisper accusations to the committee?......
