Trump's oldest son released emails Tuesday showing he knew the damaging information he was seeking about Hillary Clinton was being peddled by the highest levels of the Russian government.
Told that the Russians had "incriminating information" about his father's Democratic campaign rival, Donald Trump Jr. responded: "If it's what you say, I love it."
The emails appear to back up the most damning revelation in New York Times reports that Trump's closest associates and family members actively sought information they knew was part of a high-level Russian government effort to support Trump's campaign.
Pence has repeatedly denied any contacts between Trump associates and Russia since taking office as vice president.
During a round of Sunday morning news show appearances in mid-January, Pence told John Dickerson of CBS' Face the Nation that there had been no contacts.
"I think to suggest that is to give credence to some of these bizarre rumors that have swirled around the candidacy," Pence said at the time.
That same day, Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday, asked Pence if he had asked whether there had been any contacts between Trump associates and the Russian government or its intermediaries.
"Of course not," he said. "Why would there be any contacts between the campaign?"
A month later, Trump's national security adviser Michael Flynn was fired for lying to Pence about contacts with a Russian official.
Pence has also said he did not know Flynn had secretly lobbied for the Turkish government, despite reports claiming Flynn had actually disclosed to the Trump transition team back in January that he was under a federal investigation.
Pence was leading the transition team at the time.
Once again Tony Cook writes another article that is so good we can't figure out why he is still employed by The Indianapolis Star also known as the CIA's paper of record. He points out very well about how it is strange that Pence claims he didn't know that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn had lobbied for Turkey. Even though it appears that Flynn disclosed this to Trumps transition team which Mike Pence was in charge of!
Also as we have chronicled on this blog several times. Pence spokesman Marc Lotter is not to be believed on anything. He is a former lackey of "Godfather" Governor Mitch Daniels and former Indianapolis Mayor "Boss Greg" Ballard!
Also his actions as Governor ranging from his stiffing the Hoosier state with the bill for Bicentennial projects, to picking Eric Holcomb as his successor, and appointing that dumb as a door post Rick Hite to run the Indiana Civil Rights Commission. These actions as Governor and his unbelievable denials and asskissing he has committed as Vice President show clearly he needs to leave political life entirely.
C'mon Mikey! You are obviously stressed out, and tired after rolling out of bed at noon everyday. Public life doesn't suit you. Find something else worthwhile and salvage something of your dignity. Just resign and leave Washington.
A reader of ours posted a comment back in May of this year saying: "MIKE PENCE IS POLITICAL MENTAL PORNAGRAPHY TO THE CRITICAL THINKER PLEDGING ALLEGIANCE TO RESCUE OF THE REPUBLIC." We of course are not sure what kind of porn they are comparing Pence to. It could be 1990's scrambled porn, midget porn, etc. Who knows!
Here are what some others think of Vice President Pence:

I remain grateful the wretched leftist crook, traitor, and Saul Alinsky Disciple Hillary Rodham Clinton failed her demand she be crowned to the White House. However, I am another Republican Party voter steadfast in disgust for the elevation of the wooden and vacuous Mike Pence to any political office. Pence proves often he is devoid of any cogent understanding of the war the extreme leftist socialist Marxist Democrats are waging against the US Constitution and against American Exceptionalism. This is the main reason I allege career politician Mike Pence is mental pornography when it comes to critical thinking regarding political philosophy.
A recent reason I hold Pence in utter contempt is his campaign trail support for a repeal of Obamacare until ordered by Donald Trump to support a bill that not only retains Obamacare but this time with an eGOP eye out for the McConnell-led creation of massive transfers of money to insurance companies rather than the return of the power from the political classes and its bureaucrats to the American people.
It was downright embarrassing to watch and listen to establishment puppet Mike Pence drone on falsely as he dutifully obeyed his puppet masters and tried to sell Paul Ryan's RINOcare snake oil to a disbelieving American voter base.
As Governor of Indiana, Pence was diligent in knowing what was going on in his political realm and nothing occurred in State agencies or State-related politics without Pence's knowledge and approval. For Mike Pence to say in effect “I hear nothing, I see nothing, and I know nothing” is the height of lunacy.
Mike and Karen Pence must go.
Politico reports today (7/15/2017) on former Indiana Governor and full time RINO conservative hypocrite Mike Pence headlined "Pence will join GOP leaders for fundraiser benefiting his PAC". I must ask if Mike and Karen Pence have not sucked up enough money in their long years at the teat of the taxpayers and Wall Street that they need an umpteenth fund raiser for their, uh, 'political' interests. Hoosiers fool themselves believing Pence pushes their best interests when the truth is Mike Pence, like the Obamas, the Clintons, the Pelosis, the Bushes, etc., is in the pocket of the big corporatists.ReplyDelete
Anyone who has watched this career politician since his days at law school knows full well Mike Pence excels at vacuuming money from national and transnational corporations almost better than the corrupt duo Bill and Hillary Clinton. "Vice President Mike Pence will join congressional GOP leaders later this month for a fundraising reception benefiting a newly formed, Pence-overseen political action committee.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy are slated to headline a July 25 fundraiser for Pence’s Great America Committee. The event is to take place in Washington, according to an invitation, and attendees are being asked to pony up $5,000 apiece."
I am another Republican who urges America to REPEAL AND REPLACE MIKE AND KAREN PENCE
