Rep. Elijah Cummings Busts VP Pence For Bullsh*t Lies, Says He Has Proof
The House Oversight Committee is currently investing who all in the Trump administration knew about former National Security Adviser General Micheal Flynn’s foreign contacts.
The Trump administration claims that Vice President Mike Pence was completely in the dark and had no idea about the allegations against Flynn.
However, Pence supported Flynn when his ties to Turkey were exposed.
However, many feel that President Trump could be on the brink of impeachment, so in order for the Republicans to allow Vice President Pence to take his place, they need him to play dumb.
But Elijah Cumming isn’t having it.
Cummings released a statement on Tuesday that read,
‘In addition to being in the press in the fall — well after General Flynn’s last background check — I warned the Vice President directly six months ago about the conflicts created by Lt. General Flynn’s company lobbying on behalf of Turkish interests.
It is unclear whether the White House heeded my warnings or did any vetting at all, but it’s clear now that they could have prevented the problems that occurred with Lt. General Flynn.
Republicans in Congress are doing a disservice to the White House and our national security interests by not conducting rigorous and serious oversight of the Administration, especially to help catch issues early and address them.’
While Press Secretary Spicer tried to blame former President Obama of Flynn, the House Oversight Committee is taking a good, hard, long look into Pence’s actions.
And it sounds like they are playing around when it comes to these serious allegations.
Do you think Pence knew?
