NY Times Just Dropped A Catastrophic Bombshell on the Trump Administration
The evidence proving the Trump campaign team colluded with Russian officials leading up to the 2016 election is stacking up to insurmountable heights for the Trump administration. A fresh report by The New York Times just added more fuel to the fire.
According to the New York Times, Donald Trump’s former deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland sent an email to a close friend suggesting that Russia threw “the U.S.A. election to him.” McFarland left her post in May and is now awaiting confirmation to be Trump’s ambassador to Singapore.
McFarland’s email focused on the move former President Obama had made just before leaving office against Russia over meddling in the U.S. election. McFarland told her friend that Obama created a new obstacle for Trump to better relations with Russia “which has just thrown the U.S.A. election to him.”…
…The news couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Trump administration following Michael Flynn’s guilty plea.
As Mueller Closes In, Trump Just Entangled Himself In a Web of Lies
Donald Trump in an early morning tweet this Sunday claimed to have never asked former FBI Director James Comey to stop his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, stating that “fake news” outlets are “covering another Comey lie.”
“I never asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn,” the president wrote.
“Just more Fake News covering another Comey lie!
Comey, who was dismissed by Trump back in May, told Congress in June that Trump had asked him during an Oval Office meeting in February to end his investigation into Flynn. Trump’s lawyers have denied these claims.
Flynn on Friday pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators about his contact during the months before President Trump took office with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. ambassador about the restrictions related to the Kremlin’s election interference. He is the first person to have held a position in the Trump administration to be indicted by the special counsel.
Trump shifted his attitude this Saturday when he tweeted that he had to dismiss Flynn because the retired Army general had lied to Vice President Pence and the FBI.
“I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies,” he said in the tweet, which was sent while he was traveling in New York City for fundraising events.
“It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful,” he added. “There was nothing to hide!”
However, two sources familiar with the tweet have since told The Washington Post that John Dowd, Trump’s chief counsel, was the true author behind the tweet.
After Flynn was fired, however, Trump in February said, “I fired him because of what he said to Mike Pence. Very simple.”
Mike Pence Just Got Slapped With Devastating News In Connection to Mueller’s Probe (Video)
Throughout Trump’s presidency, Vice President Mike Pence has played the innocent card. His friend Michael Flynn just took the fall in Mueller’s probe after the president fired Flynn earlier this year for lying to Pence and the FBI.
However, analysts question if Pence was as oblivious to Flynn’s connection to foreign governments as he claimed? (Watch video below)
Americans who are watching Mueller’s probe unfold are questioning who will be the next person to get slapped with an indictment? There is speculation that it could be Don Jr. or Jared Kushner.
CNN’s congressional correspondent, Man Raju, believes Flynn’s guilty plea proves Mueller is investigating Pence. CNN Host Jim Sciutto asked Raju, “I was going to ask you about this, Manu. The timeline is very relevant here. Flynn is interviewed on Jan 24, 2016 by the FBI. Sally Yates, two days later an acting attorney general, raises a red flag because it was apparent he had lied in that interview. and then, it is a couple of weeks later when the president has a meeting with with James Comey and says, ‘Hey, lay off my pal, Michael Flynn.’”
Raju replied, “Yeah, and keeping him on staff, Flynn, for a couple of weeks afterwards. Despite having that warning, very blatant warning from Sally Yates.”
Raju then explained his take on Pence:
“It is also because of what he told the vice president. But I think the vice president is someone that Mueller undoubtedly will be looking at, and people on Capitol Hill will be looking at.”
He continued, “He was head of the transition team. He perhaps may have had some sense of these discussions that were going on. Even if he was not named in that court document today, it does not mean he may not have been aware of some of the things that were happening here. That’s one of the key questions that I think Mueller is going to have to explore.”

New Evidence Surfaced Showing Mike Pence Covered Up Flynn’s Scandal
Now that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn is back in the news, as Special Counsel Robert Mueller collects White House documents related to his dismissal, we should probably take a quick look back to last November.
We’re looking at last November because according to a recently uncovered letter sent to then Vice-President Elect Mike Pence by Congressman Elijah Cummings, Pence was well aware of conflicts of interest and potential security risks that came with appointing Flynn to the NSA.
Many people knew before hand that Flynn had deep, deep connections to foreign government, and this letter contradicts Pence’s previous assertions that he wasn’t aware of potential issues with Flynn.
Scott Dworkin with the Democratic Coalition brought this to our attention and believes Pence should resign:
A Congressman sent this letter 11/18/16 to Mike Pence alerting him that Mike Flynn was a paid Russian agent. Pence knew & lied.
This is bad news for Mike Pence.
Why? Because he claimed ignorance about Mike Flynn being a paid foreign agent up until the time Mike Flynn resigned and officially registered as a paid foreign agent.
Breaking: Michael Flynn says Trump Ordered Him to Conspire With Russia
This morning Michael Flynn’s plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller became official. Flynn is pleading guilty to a single charge of lying to the FBI, and his other charges – ranging from conspiracy to commit kidnapping to conspiracy against the United States – will be waived. This made clear that Flynn was turning over substantial evidence and testimony to be used against bigger fish. Now it’s being confirmed just how substantial it is.
Michael Flynn has agreed to testify against Donald Trump and the entire Trump family, according to an ABC News report.
MORE: Michael Flynn “is prepared to testify…against Pres. Trump, against members of the Trump family, and others in the White House,” @BrianRoss reports.
Flynn prepared to testify that Trump directed him to contact Russians about ISIS, confidant says
Flynn will testify that Donald Trump “directed him to make contact with the Russians.” The report doesn’t name specific other members of the Trump family, but based on prior reporting, it’s fairly clear who they are: Donald Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, and possibly Ivanka Trump. Mueller would not have handed out an overly lenient deal like this unless he’s already seen that Flynn can provide testimony and evidence to indict and charge these bigger fish. But there’s more.
ABC says that Flynn will be testifying against “others in the White House” without naming names. There is every reason to believe that Flynn will finger Vice President Mike Pence, as we’ve explained earlier.
BREAKING: Trump aides shocked by something that was obviously gonna happen
Tom Nichols, Twitter Patriot Supreme.
AND, LASTLY, IF THE FOLKS AT THE WHITE HOUSE HAD PAID ANY ATTENTION AT ALL THIS WOULD NOT BE SHOCKING THEM. WE HERE IN FLY-OVER LAND SAW THIS WHEN DT ANNOUNCED HE WAS RUNNING!!! WHAT IS IT, YOU ASK?? OH…JUST THIS…..
The Memo: Team Trump in shock as Flynn flips
President Trump was pitched into a deepening crisis on Friday as his former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and announced that he was cooperating with the team of investigators spearheaded by special counsel Robert Mueller.
The news, which broke early on Friday morning, delivered a seismic shock to the Trump team.
“Terrible,” was the verdict of one source close to Trump, speaking on condition of anonymity. The source added that Mueller’s success in getting Flynn to flip was “very dangerous” for the president.
The likelihood of Flynn cooperating with Mueller had been on the rise since Thanksgiving, when his attorneys had told lawyers working for Trump that they could no longer share information.
But the confirmation that the former national security adviser had been turned by Mueller was a political and legal bombshell.
The atmosphere of crisis gave rise to chaotic moments…
…The news all but obliterated the coverage of a significant step forward for Republicans on Capitol Hill, as the Senate passed the party’s tax-reform plan — the first significant legislative achievement since the GOP took control of a unified government in January.
The president’s personal lawyer, Ty Cobb, put a positive spin on the Flynn news. In a statement, he emphasized that Flynn had served as national security adviser for less than a month and also described him as “a former Obama administration official.”
Cobb insisted that “nothing about the guilty plea or the charge implicates anyone other than Mr. Flynn.”
But behind the scenes, the atmosphere in Trump’s orbit was different.
“It makes the White House staff very nervous, because no one exactly knows where the investigation will lead next,” said one GOP strategist with close ties to the administration.
Flynn’s decision to cooperate comes against the urgings of the president himself.
Yahoo News reported that Flynn told supporters in April that Trump had encouraged him to “stay strong.”
The previous month, Trump had tweeted, “Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!”
The argument that the Mueller investigation is a witch hunt is now close to untenable.
Paul Manfort, Rick Gates, and George Papadopolous have been indicted and charged with varying crimes. Jared Kushner will soon be charged and arrested.
But there is “no collusion”, “no treason”, and it’s a “witch hunt”…right…and I have an ocean front cabana to sell in Western Kansas….
