Mike Pence Totally Kept In Dark Over Michael Flynn, White House Is IMPLODING!
Mike Pence was reportedly only informed of the U.S. Justice Department’s warning about ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn’s phone calls with a Russian ambassador nearly two weeks after the White House and the president were informed.
According to NBC News sources—one allegedly close to the vice president, the other inside the Trump administration—Pence was informed on February 9, 11 days after the president was warned, via counsel, by then-acting Attorney General Sally Q. Yates that Flynn had not been completely forthcoming in telling the VP he did not discuss sanctions with the Russian official.
Pence appeared January 15 on CBS’s Face the Nation to defend Flynn and reiterate what the national security advisor had told him—that he never discussed the sanctions. Flynn resigned on Monday evening, and presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway claimed that Flynn “misleading” Pence was what led to the adviser’s departure from the administration.
