It seems like in my snowflake butthurt libtard cuck cunt mind that Trumps unraveling Presidency is similar to the fall of Nixon as one by one trusted underlings will leave his side as the trail leads back to him until the walls close in and there is no one else to blame,. Will Steve Bannon be able to last the next 40 years like that Dirty Jew Kissinger as a respected and honored party guru? Can Woodward and Bernstein have a final days comeback, if so Hoffman and Redford are in.
IMO Sessions is gone soon.
Hopefully former governor Mike Pence will be better about hiding his kickbacks.
I'm not sure why this isn't a big subject here for cons? Hillary disclosed there were foreigners donating to kids with AIDS in her name and that was a sure sign she was compromised.
where does a paid, registered foreign agent as head of our National Security Council register on their Holy Shit meter? Not high enough because a Friendship Medal recipient is currently dismantling our State department? Or is there a significant anti-State Dept. campaign going on in the right wing blogosphere? And did Russian connection suddenly become a sign of patriotism in the anti-immigrant party?
Well like the claim against Obama you're so fond of making Trump only found out about this when he read the news yesterday...apparently lol
Yes, only after being informed in writing by Congress and in person by Flynns own lawyers (both in November) but none of that registered with Pence as head of transition or Trump as President until it was in the news. It's certainly ethical enough to have used the man as a surrogate and attack dog during the campaign, install him on the NSC and when the inevitable happens blame the media for Flynns departure. I totally get Cheezy's excuse. The past is the past and Hillary's goddamn email server hadn't been used for work since 2012 so it was irrelevant to Cheezy after that.
Well that got hoovered. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...ransition-team
Flynn's attorney told the transition attorneys about it before he was hired, Spicer says Trump didn't know. In other words this information would have been put on his desk along with a bunch of other stuff he doesn't read. He's a real details guy.
I actually believe his claims on this one. We know his team had the information, and we can make a fairly safe assumption that in preparing documents for him to make his decisions they would have included the information. The problem then would have been getting the information into the tiny conspiracy theory addled mind of the Donald, and his team haven't found the knack. It just isn't possible to pack in the amount of information a President needs to process using coloring books and big slide presentations.
It's undoubtedly wrong to take money from foreign governments or corporations WHILE in a government position. It's almost certainly ethically wrong to have done so previously and then accept highly powerful government positions (whether illegal or not is certainly questionable). There is a reason why Obama insisted the Clinton's not accept foreign funds while she was Secretary of State. They ignored his demands but oh well. Flynn should never have been put in the position if he had accepted foreign money that could sway his positions and payments always sway positions.
Just wondering, would it be unethical for a cabinet official to have a lobbying history for Bayer or other German companies or is it just limited to questionable countries like Turkey? For example if a cabinet level official had done lobbying for a German seed company, would that be morally ethical?
