Mike Pence caught lying about Russia, again

Mike Pence is either the most out-of-the-loop vice president in American history, or he’s one hell of a liar. But Pence again today was proven to have misstated the Trump administration’s contacts with Russia.

On January 15, 2017, Flynn told Fox News that the Trump campaign had no contacts with the Russians. We now know, again, that Flynn was woefully wrong.

We already knew that Mike Flynn spoke repeatedly with the Russian ambassador. Today we learned that Jared Kushner also met with the Russian ambassador in December, at a meeting also attended by Flynn.

And we learned from USA Today that Trump campaign aides Carter Page and J.D. Gordon met with the Russian ambassador during the GOP convention. “Several more”  Trump campaign aides were reportedly also in attendance.

USA Today notes that at least 20 times Team Trump denied their campaign having any conversations with the Russians. Now, we’re finding out about more meetings by the minute.

Here’s Pence’s staunch denial of these meetings:

At this point, who knows what to believe. All we know is that the Trump campaign and White House have engaged in a conspiracy to hide the fact that they had ongoing contacts with Russian officials in the US, and possibly abroad (if US and foreign intelligence agencies are to be believed). Why go to such lengths to hide these contacts if nothing untoward was discussed or done?

    You just don’t know the rules. Pence can lie until his lips fall off as long as he prays it away on Sunday (and tithes 10% of course).

  • Let us pray.

  • margaretpoa

    How very “Christian” of him to lie. Ya know, Jesus supposedly said a lot about lying, none of it good but he never even mentioned LGBT people. Those idiots who spend their lives studying the bible and interpreting it to mean that everybody should hate teh gayz should do something else because they’re not doing it right..

  • brel1

    It’s looking like the top two are in deep enough to be ousted. Just assuming from the way things are going.

  • Nope. Ryan succeeds only if both the President and then the Vice President vacate. If only the VP vacates, then the President appoints someone else. If only the President vacates, the VP steps up and then appoints the new VP.

  • “the governor [Pence] set up a new AOL account [when hacked last summer]”

    That says everything right there…

  • Demosthenes

    Release all of Pence’s private emails so we can see his top secret responses to his Grinder account.

    He won’t be able to pray those away.

  • Badgerite

    GOP is the new Orange. Jumpsuits all around.

  • Demosthenes

    So Pence used a private e mail service at the same time he mindlessly chanted “lock her up” for Clinton? Perfect.

  • Badgerite

    At this point, they may as well make it official an have two separate justice systems. One for members of the GOP, and one for everybody who is not a member of the GOP.
    It isn’t “America First”. Actually it is “GOP First”.

  • brel1

    Who is next in line? Oh No, Paul Ryan. Was this his plan?

  • Wild Child

    More to come, for sure.

  • Niblet58

    And HIS email was hacked last summer where as Hillary Clinton’s emails were not.

  • Mike Pence also agreed that Secretary Clinton should’ve been prosecuted for using a private email server.

    Once again, rank GOP hypocrisy is exposed:
