Trump Claims Nobody Told Him About Flynn — Everybody Told Him But Jarvanka Ruled The Day

If there is one attribute that Donald Trump has, it’s consistency. He has a stupid idea, he’s told it’s stupid, he does it anyway, something goes wrong, and then he blames everybody else. This morning’s tweet fest began at 4:00 a.m., with Trump demanding long prison terms for FBI investigators doing their jobs, accusing them of spying and treason and then he posted this exculpatory jewel at 7:30 a.m. It now seems the General Flynn was under investigation long before was common knowledge. It would have been impossible for me to know this but, if that was the case, and with me being one of two people who would become president, why was I not told so that I could make a change? — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 17, 2019 “It would have been impossible for me to know this.” Of course it would have. Obama told Trump not to hire Flynn. Obama fired Flynn as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014. Apparently Trump interpreted that as a good thing, hey, if Obama fires you, you must be cool. Elijah Cummings spoke to Mike Pence in November, 2016, warning him that Flynn was working for Turkey and making speeches in Russia and that there was an obvious conflict of interests. Pence shined that on, did nothing, and claimed that the first he knew anything about Flynn was when he read it in the Washington Post. Sally Yates told Don McGahn January 26, 2017 about Flynn’s back channel contacts with Kisylak, which the Justice Department feared might make him subject to blackmail. That conversation fell on deaf ears, apparently, because on January 28, 2017 Flynn was part of a three way call between Trump and Putin. Then on January 30, 2017, Trump fired Yates. Yates leaked her warning about Flynn and on Valentine’s Day, Trump fired Flynn — with Mike Pence strutting around sanctimoniously claiming he knew nothing, nothing. According to RawStory, even Chris freaking Christie knew the score about Flynn and went so far as to warn Jarvanka, but they wouldn’t accept reality either, because Jared was in love with back channels to the Kremlin. He tried to put one of his own together, if you recall, at the same time that Pence’s benefactor and bankroller, Eric Prince, was having a tete a tete with an emissary of Putin’s in the Seychelle’s Islands. But nobody knows nuttin’ with this crowd. Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump ignored warnings from Chris Christie and other top officials in November 2016 about Flynn, who the president’s son-in-law reportedly instructed to make contact with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, and offered the retired general any administration job he wanted. So, it’s Jarvanka, once again. The most powerful nation in the world, in the hands of a senile, Adderall-addicted conman, who is taking direction on affairs of state from his daughter and her clueless trust-fund-baby husband. And this is not the first over the top decision that Jared made and Ivanka co-signed on. You remember it was Jared’s idea to fire James Comey, which Steve Bannon called, “The worst decision in modern political history.” Jared Kushner is dangerous. He doesn’t know anything about government, he doesn’t listen to anybody who does, (he and John Kelly loathed one another) and he is compelled to pursue his Machiavellian schemes and […]
