When the future generations look back on this era of American history, the ineptitude of this presidential administration will, more than likely, cause shock and wonder.
For instance, Mike Flynn, Jr., son of former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, just implicated Vice President Mike Pence in the Trump/Russia scandal, apparently without even realizing what he had done.
President Donald Trump and Pence claimed that they decided to fire the elder Flynn because he lied about phone calls with the Russians during the transition period between the Obama administration and the Trump administration. That claim has never really made that much sense, especially given the fact that Pence has claimed in multiple TV interviews that he was unaware of Flynn’s actions during the transition period.
Add to that the fact that House Democrat Elijah Cummings and several other warned Pence about Flynn prior to the transition, even sending a letter to Pence alleging that Flynn was working with and taking money from foreign governments.
In spite of Pence’s claims that the elder Flynn lied, Flynn Jr. has publicly stated that his father never lied to the Vice President. Of course, by saying that his father didn’t lie to Pence, Flynn Jr. is implying that Mike Pence has been lying to the public. IF this is true, it means that Pence committed a crime by lying about his knowledge of Flynn’s activity with a foreign government. Lying to the public with the intent to affect an investigation is considered felony obstruction of justice. Since Flynn Jr. is fully cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller, it is only a mater of time before we find out if Pence is as big a liar as Trump.
