well this whole "govt is spying people and stealing their information" thing turned out to be true so i guess anything can happen, i guess.

what bothers me is that this administration is not really hiding these hideous details.

Let's hear it for print media and for educated professionals who use big words and take notes -- you know, those hated "elites."

WASHINGTON — Michael T. Flynn told President Trump’s transition team weeks before the inauguration that he was under federal investigation for secretly working as a paid lobbyist for Turkey during the campaign, according to two people familiar with the case.

Despite this warning, which came about a month after the Justice Department notified Mr. Flynn of the inquiry, Mr. Trump made Mr. Flynn his national security adviser. The job gave Mr. Flynn access to the president and nearly every secret held by American intelligence agencies.

It. Never. Ends.

The incompetence & deception is unbelievable yet totally predicable. My God.

I haven't gotten on this bandwagon yet, but this is the kind of oversight that would end any other administration.

If the transition team knew, you would assume the person in charge of the transition team knew. That person was Mike Pence.

And it would blow my mind if that information was not passed on to Trump. The only bigger red flag would have been if Flynn said he was an actual spy. Or Putin.

WASHINGTON

One of the Trump administration’s first decisions about the fight against the Islamic State was made by Michael Flynn weeks before he was fired – and it conformed to the wishes of Turkey, whose interests, unbeknownst to anyone in Washington, he’d been paid more than $500,000 to represent.

The decision came 10 days before Donald Trump had been sworn in as president, in a conversation with President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, who had explained the Pentagon’s plan to retake the Islamic State’s de facto capital of Raqqa with Syrian Kurdish forces whom the Pentagon considered the U.S.’s most effective military partners. Obama’s national security team had decided to ask for Trump’s sign-off, since the plan would all but certainly be executed after Trump had become president.

Flynn didn’t hesitate. According to timelines distributed by members of Congress in the weeks since, Flynn told Rice to hold off, a move that would delay the military operation for months

I know it will be very unlikely to happen, but man, if this whole thing could take out both Trump and Pence (and heck, maybe Ryan, too), I would actually throw a party. Here's the GOP, putting so much of their hope on Pence if Trump gets taken down, so it'd be very interesting to see what their reaction would be if Pence got taken down by this scandal, too.
