Is the Trump administration is afflicted with ‘Moscow memory’? | Richard Wolffe

Sadly this sickness may have started inside the Trump family. Jeff Sessions is just a hapless victim of some brain-corroding virus

For so many people who are close to Donald Trump, Russia is the Bermuda Triangle of their memory.

Conversations and meetings seem to pass through this mysterious quadrant of their brains and simply disappear. Even when the wreckage is found on some server or other, they profess ignorance, confusion or innocence. And sometimes all three at once.

The Un-Trump-Ables: Here’s The Team Investigating Russia and Trump – The Cheat Sheet

The Un-Trump-Ables: Here’s The Team Investigating Russia and Trump
The Cheat Sheet
With the TrumpRussia probe gearing up in full speed, it might behoove you to get familiar with the investigative team that Robert Mueller has assembled. The team reads like the who’s … Greg Andres has his own history in prosecuting mob families. He 

Mike Pence is completely screwed

Mike Pence’s recent disappearing act is a signal that he believes if he lays sufficiently low during the latter days of the Trump-Russia scandal, Donald Trump will get ousted from office and he’ll inherit the presidency by default. Pence, however, wasn’t counting on getting caught up in the scandal himself. He’s long quietly been in some Trump-Russia trouble. After yesterday’s revelations, he’s completely screwed.

We now know that Donald Trump Jr was in regular contact with WikiLeaks during the election, with regard to emails that had supposedly been stolen from Hillary Clinton. We also know that WikiLeaks informed several key members of the Trump campaign via email that it was communicating with Trump Jr. As the entire inner circle of the campaign knew about it, it’s now impossible to believe that Mike Pence was the only one who didn’t know. That means Pence has a problem, because shortly afterward, he explicitly told the public that he was not aware of any communications between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks.

Getting caught lying to the public is a bad thing in general, but not illegal. Getting caught lying to the public, in an attempt to mislead federal investigators, is obstruction of justice. Mike Pence already tainted himself in early 2017 when he went on television and claimed he had no knowledge of Michael Flynn’s financial relationships with foreign governments. Congress had already informed him of Flynn’s relationship with Turkey in late 2016.

So now Mike Pence will be stuck trying to fend off two entirely different instances of lying about his knowledge of the Donald Trump campaign’s communications with Russia. If this guy does inherit the presidency once Trump is ousted, he’ll either spend it trying to fend off his own role in the Trump-Russia scandal, or he’ll eventually end up getting ousted himself.

The post Mike Pence is completely screwed appeared first on Palmer Report.
