Fox is reporting Trump was fully briefed on Flynn call with Russia & allowed Pence to be lied to.



DONALD Trump was fully briefed on the content of Michael Flynnís call with Russia after it happened, according to Fox News.

The President heard the details of the controversial communications between his national security adviser and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, the news outlet reported. Those calls are now at the centre of a national security scandal that cost General Flynn his job.

ďUnder repeated questioning during an investigation by the White House Counselís Office, General Flynn Iím told had a full recollection of what he talked about with the Russian Ambassador,Ē Fox News Chief White House Correspondent John Roberts reported.

Gen Flynn initially said he did not discuss sanctions, or didnít fully remember the content of those conversations.

38. Sounds like they are covering for Pence who really did know in short order.

He at least knew before he went on camera and lied to the America people.

3. Makes sense - Spicer and trump said they were briefed (Yates), and after WH counsel et. al.

investigated, decided he hadn't done anything illegal.

The lying is what supposedly led to his resignation. (which was before the briefing).

Thus they need to claim that he was kept ignorant.

9. That's my guess. Fox has the talking points and agenda. I don't think Trump realizes it. He's a

typical Fox viewer. Actually, he might be starting to realize it, and is getting very confused.

..that's bad news for Trump et al. First Shep Smith goes on a rant against Trump, now this. I wonder how the regular brain-washed Fox viewers are reacting and who will they turn on? Flynn? Trump? Fox News?

Neither of these story offered a conspiracy theory about Dem treachery somehow causing this, the focus was on Trump.

but it is clear the 'fake news' meme is taking effect and Trump followers are being indoctrinated to not trust ANY media at all, period.

This rt wing news vitriol against Trump tells me they are setting up to get rid of him and install President Pence which I felt was the objective months ago, when they realized holy shit this orange turd might actually win the presidency.

13. since Fox is reporting it it must be baloney so I wonder what the truth REALLY is.

 

Something like, Trump wasn't briefed on it because he's a moron and wouldn't understand it anyway, but Pence WAS briefed on it because he's more stable mentally, therefore he knew about all of this but Trump is the fall guy, so they are allowing Pence to look innocent. No one will ever know the truth from Pence because only his eyeballs and lips move when he talks...no telltale tics or facial expressions left alive.

Even they've had enough of Trump's bullshit and realize it's probably bad for their "brand."

Then we'd have to prepare for President Ryan.

But the more it stinks for whoever takes over Trump, the better it serves us for 2018 and 2020.

23. My guess is Ryan is worse than Pence

 

Ryan is terrifying to me, even though as a woman and lgbt Pence gives me nightmares. Ryan, because he is so young, and such an obvious sociopath along the lines of Patrick Bateman in American psycho...he is everyone's worst nightmare of a college republican come to life.

25. Ryan strikes me as more polished, intelligent and photogenic than Pence.

Pence comes off as something of a dumb bulb.

I think I'd rather do battle against President Pence than President Ryan if I had my choice.

27. I don't think Ryan will represent our country well at all

 

I don't find him "polished" unless there is a way to polish a turd I don't know about. I think he is an obnoxious, arrogant asshole and he doesn't make any effort to hide it. I don't want to argue for Pence but Ryan's arrogance and youthful haughtiness is not something I want representing this country.

he strikes me as the kind of person who makes his business to know everything that is going on around him at all times regardless of whether he is officially included or not. Kind of sociopathically smart. Don't like him at all, he's a walking nightmare.

18. it is odd that there is now the Trump faction of the GOP

 

first the evangelicals came along, then the Tea party, now this...I honestly wonder if we as a country are headed toward a multi-party system like European countries...and how long it will take to get there...the GOP seems to be held together by only the thinnest threads anymore.

I can certainly speak on behalf of my evangelical family, they would like nothing better, none of them voted for Trump and they are all republicans (due to the abortion issue)

36. The above two posts are spot on.

I know of someone who voted Trump and believes that God "allowed" Trump win *cough* so that Pence could be installed and bring about the end of the world faster.

Pence is their wet dream.

24. What's important is that trump lied. Flynn is gone and no longer the story.

Remember trump briefly being asked by a reporter who stuck a mike in his face on Air Force One about about the report that Flynn lied about his conversations with the Russian ambassador ó tump said he knew nothing about it and would have to look into it?

He knew then, had been briefed already and subsequently allowed Pence to be lied to by Flynn.

There should be repercussions ó I mean undeniable proof that the president is an out-and-out liar and allowed the VP to be lied to is pretty substantial.

And what's up with FOX, are they starting turn on him too?
