Throughout Trump’s presidency, the GOP did their best to protect VP Mike Pence in preparation for a Trump impeachment or resignation. Republicans make Mike Pence look like the patron saint of the White House who is completely ignorant of any wrongdoings made by members of the administration.
Well, special counsel Robert Mueller isn’t buying the Pence act. Mueller made a recent request to the White House to hand over all documents related to disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
After Flynn resigned, he retroactively registered as a foreign agent for the Turkish government. Additionally, Flynn had questionable connections to Russian officials.
Via The New York Times:
“The line of questioning shows that Mr. Mueller’s inquiry has expanded into a full-fledged examination of Mr. Flynn’s financial dealings, beyond the relatively narrow question of whether he failed to register as a foreign agent or lied about his conversations and business arrangements with Russian officials.”
Here’s where Pence comes into the picture. Mike Pence headed up the transition team and was in charge of vetting Michael Flynn. Pence said that he had no clue about Flynn’s foreign contacts, but Flynn and Flynn’s lawyer beg to differ. They claim that Flynn told the transition team about Flynn’s foreign contacts including his ties to Turkey.
The decision to focus on Flynn proves that Mueller is coming after VP Mike Pence, and Mueller’s move is the reason VP Mike Pence lawyered up ahead of schedule.
