It now seems the General Flynn was under investigation long before was common knowledge. It would have been impossible for me to know this but, if that was the case, and with me being one of two people who would become president, why was I not told so that I could make a change?

Jennifer Hayden Retweeted Donald J. Trump

Barack Obama personally warned Donald Trump not to hire Flynn.

Flynn was fired by Obama. That was part of Trump's appeal to Flynn and Flynn's appeal to Trump. It was revenge.

And don't forget about Sally Yates.  She warned you and you did NOTHING for several weeks, until the story broke and it was untenable to continue with him.  Bottom line, Flynn was doing your bidding all along,; you knew what he was up to, and why you kept him on.  You're a fool to think another revisionist story will work.  Of course your brain dead base may accept this lie like they accept them all.

Here is a good WP article with just a few little highlights ...

The Plum Line Opinion 

The White House’s latest Mueller absurdity is shocking. Even for Trump.

It is a useful exercise at times to step back and state clearly what President Trump and the White House are really arguing. We waste so much time chasing little lies that we lose sight of how audaciously, monumentally absurd and profoundly saturated in bad faith their big arguments really are.

Case in point: the current oversight wars, which just escalated once again.

The position of Trump and the White House is this: It is not a legitimate legislative purpose for Congress to further flesh out special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings with the goal of fortifying our election security against future outside attacks on our political system.

Stripped down to its essence, this is the unvarnished White House position.

........

Its (WH) case is that, because Democrats are merely going over the same ground that Mueller did, they are retrying a criminal matter, which isn’t the House’s role. It’s a ridiculous argument.

But nonetheless, Nadler’s new letter in response is important, because it spells out in more detail than I’ve seen elsewhere the legislative purpose behind Democratic oversight demands.

Nadler writes that the Mueller report “found that Russia interfered in our elections,” and that this demonstrates our vulnerability to “foreign disinformation campaigns” and “demonstrates a compelling need to strengthen laws to improve election security.”

Nadler continues that “with the 2020 elections approaching, the Committee requires a more complete understanding of Russia’s influence and hacking operations.”

here is a bit more ...

Trump officials say Russia is interfering. Trump shrugs.

What makes this more galling is that members of Trump’s own administration say that Russian interference efforts are an ongoing threat. FBI Director Christopher A. Wray recently declared those efforts represent a “significant counterintelligence threat,” adding that he views Russia’s 2018 efforts as a “dress rehearsal for the big show in 2020.”

Yet Trump World’s position continues to be: No biggie. Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale recently claimed that Russia “never” helped Trump in 2016. Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner shrugged that this Russian help amounted to “a couple of Facebook ads.”

Trump World’s position is that the Mueller report totally exonerated Trump but you should ignore all its findings on the Russian sabotage effort itself, because it basically never happened. That is, ignore at least the first 50 pages, which concluded that Russian interference was “sweeping and systematic,” and included massive cybertheft directed at Democrats and disinformation warfare to socially divide the country.

Barr is more or less in on this, too. He just had an interview with Fox News and validated Trump’s theory that the early Russia investigation might have been about hobbling Trump. Barr is carrying out Trump’s lawless command to investigate the investigators, implicitly downgrading the legitimacy of an investigation into a foreign attack on our political system.

Democrats want to secure elections. Republicans don’t.

Trump actively and extensively encouraged the Russian attack, hyping WikiLeaks’ findings countless times. His campaign eagerly sought to coordinate with that attack. Trump went to enormous lengths to impede the investigation into it. He and his advisers repeatedly lied to cover up all the dimensions of that broader story.

Now, Trump World’s position is basically that the attack never happened, and the White House position is that further fleshing out Mueller’s conclusions about it, to do something about the next one, isn’t a legitimate legislative purpose — even though Trump’s own intelligence officials are waving red flags about it.

How can this really be the position of the White House and the president of the United States?

Ways & Means Chair responds to Mnuchin: "The law, by its terms, does not allow for discretion as to whether to comply with a request for tax returns ... Given the Treasury Secretary's failure to comply today, I am consulting with counsel on how best to enforce the subpoenas."

The Fake News Media is hurting our Country with its fraudulent and highly inaccurate coverage of Iran. It is scattershot, poorly sourced (made up), and DANGEROUS. At least Iran doesn’t know what to think, which at this point may very well be a good thing!

Trump asserts that sources in the media are fake. In the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s, he would call reporters and try to fake them out by pretending to be a media spokesman named “John Miller” or “John Barron” who would then talk up a real estate mogul named Trump

This is old news. But it’s always worth taking a step back to think about it for a moment. What kind of person would pick up the phone and actually do this? A sociopath. #DerangedDonald

Before he leaves the White House Trump will be the first person to play 18 holes with a perfect 18 strokes— holes in one on every hole! He will be the first sub-scratch golfer, maybe a minus 9. Is he not the most amazing man on earth, ever? Remarkable human. Best at everything!

It seems like Flynn and Pie-Face Matt Gaetz were pen-pals during the Mueller investigation.

President Trump announces a deal with Canada and Mexico that would scrap "major tariffs." The agreement ends a simmering trade dispute that began when the president imposed tariffs on imported steel and aluminum in the name of national security.
