So let me see if I get this

They're leaking stuff about who knew what about Flynn before Sally (Y)ATES them.

If the latest leaks are true then Pence clearly knew.

Lock them all up.

1. what really bothered me was that the trump team requested the intel

from the CIA on the Russian ambassador....under the guise that they wanted to know about "who he was". Who is to say that that intel wasn't given to the operative by the trump transition team?

4. Apparently the request came not from main members of the Trump transition team..

but those with national security experience (and lesser known)

6. My take on this is that the leaks will eliminate all attempts to claim plausible deniability..

The Kislyak profile was requested by a Transition Team member that was not part of the inner Trump circle....
And did so in an attempt to discourage Flynn & Trump from engaging with Kislyak/Russia

This guy left the Transition Team before inauguration....
but when bigger "russia" shoes started to drop recently, he was all of the sudden nominated for a high level Treasury Dept job...
Probably to try & keep him quiet


Regardless, his actions establish the third known layer of Flynn related Warnings...
This guy reached out to the appropriate Obama staff...
who clearly had to share the purpose of the request with the CIA in order to get the profile

He also warned Flynn directly about Kislyak /Putin & communication surveillance potential....& Kompromat risk...and
Made other members of the Transition team aware as well...

Then Sally Yates warned McGahn & anyone else in the room at the time

And Elijah C warned pence in writing...


Any of these alone could be argued as isolated ... not sufficiently disseminated to specific people...

But together they show multiple warnings from a variety of unrelated sources, who each shared their concerns with a variety of Trump Team members and did so over a period of time ....
which also establishes that warnings were ignored and continued acts by Flynn/Trump Team were taking place ..


Which leads to the (obvious) point that everyone knew and apparently it was supported / encouraged without reservation ....

8. We've been pointing that out to our tv all morning...

Unless Pence is so incredibly idiotic and unaware (or, he has been deliberately excluded by others in the cabal to ensure he'll not fall when the rest of the asshats are brought down), there is no way that Flynn "lied" to him (which is supposedly why Flynn was fired by Trump). He knew.

About three hours ago, cable news began digging up "in-the-know" pundits who are now saying that it was a very small group on the transition team who raised questions about Flynn.

I call bullshit!

He knew.

14. I've been saying all along that Pence should be the first to be impeached.

He knew. Trump knew. All the senior members of the Trump transition team knew. And they didn't give 2 $hits because they don't care about anyone but themselves.

Impeach and convict Pence when we secure the majority in 2018. Isolate Trump and refuse to confirm a new VP. Torture him and his cabal the way he has tortured us. Pass legislative measures to financially ruin him and his cohorts if we have the votes.

17. Pence knew back in Nov. because Rep. Cummings sent him a letter!

The letter should be on the House Oversight Committee website in pdf form, I just now downloaded a copy.

Congressman Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, publicly posted a letter AND sent it directly to Pence's office, reporting that Flynn was dirty.


So now Pence gets to explain what he did/did not do and why.

Cumming's letter is concrete proof he KNEW, and hopefully enough to squish him.

22. They're framing the narrative

Wouldn't it of been in Americas interest to let Flynn go and allow our intelligence agencies to continue on monitoring Flynn unnoticed. They're successfully spinning the news of the Trump team warning Flynn, who then possibly warned Putin, that US agencies were investigation collusion and tapping the calls. Why the hell would an incoming president warn a possible FSB mole that he's being monitored! Our congressional investigations our compromised, the FBI is being lead by a partisan hack, and we have may still have other foreign agents in our WH. It's unbelievable that we don't have an independent investigation by now!
