Senate Judiciary Committee targets Mike Pence in the Trump-Russia scandal

With each passing day it becomes more apparent that Donald Trump is going down for his Russia scandal. Four of his advisers have been arrested. Two of them have cut deals to help the prosecution. One of them is Michael Flynn, the key to unraveling everything. Now that Trump’s demise is playing out, Mike Pence seems to think he’s about to inherit the presidency. But his own role in the scandal and coverup is suddenly blowing up on him as well.

For reasons known only to him, Mike Pence bent over backwards in early 2017 to try to protect Michael Flynn, even after he had learned that Flynn was dirty. Congressman Elijah Cummings notified Pence in November of 2016 that Flynn was on the take from foreign governments, yet Pence went on to use his role as head of the transition team to steer Flynn into the sensitive National Security Adviser position. Pence also went on national television and asserted that as far as he knew, Flynn was clean. Now that Flynn has cut a deal, it’s created yet another paper trail back to Pence and a key Senate committee is now pursuing it.

Immediately after Flynn cut a plea deal, it leaked to the media that he notified several unnamed members of the transition team about his Russia conspiracy. This makes it all but impossible for Pence, the head of the transition team, not to have known. Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Dianne Feinstein is going directly after the Trump campaign. She’s sent a letter demanding additional details about this incident, and while she doesn’t state that Mike Pence is her target, it’s clear that she’s seeking to prove his complicity.

Meanwhile we learned this week that Mike Pence now expects to be interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. This means that Mueller is looking to either take Pence down, or force Pence to cut a plea deal which would lead to his resignation and cooperation against Donald Trump. Feinstein is targeting Pence right now for a reason. You can read her letter here.
