What Did He Know and When Did He Know It?

This evening Josh Marshall has a useful elaboration of a thought that occurred to Aardvark this afternoon. I’ll bet it occurred to you, too.

Michael Flynn apparently lied to Mike Pence about what he was up to with the Ruskies. He probably lied to other folks too.

But isn’t it reasonable to suppose that when Flynn spoke to the Russian ambassador about sanctions, he was acting with Trump’s knowledge and approval?

I’d put it that even a superficial examination of the facts points toward that conclusion. Marshall lays out the case in greater detail.

And let’s war game this thing one step further. If Trump is now compelled to shit can Flynn, what revelations can we expect from Flynn in retaliation?

Don’t you love the smell of napalm in the morning?
