If Donald Trump thought that this week might somehow be better than the last, he’s just been shown that it’s only going to get worse.
It’s only Monday, and CNN has already ruined Trump’s week by exposing a major development in his infamous Russia scandal. Thanks to CNN’s dedication to the truth and the fact that Trump has damaged his relationship with the network beyond repair, Trump has just been blasted for being fully aware that Michael Flynn lied to the FBI several weeks before firing him.
“The White House’s chief lawyer told President Donald Trump in January he believed then-national security adviser Michael Flynn had misled the FBI and lied to Vice President Mike Pence and should be fired, a source familiar with the matter said Monday. The description of the conversation raises new questions about what Trump knew about Flynn’s situation when he urged then-FBI Director James Comey to drop the investigation into Flynn and whether anyone in the White House, including the President himself, attempted to obstruct justice.”
This only makes a stronger case for Trump obstructing justice, even as Trump tries to throw out every distraction and excuse in the book to keep himself out of the hot seat. If he was aware that his former national security advisor had lied to the FBI weeks before asking former FBI Director James Comey to stop investigating Flynn, this is definitely a criminal offense. He was clearly trying to save Flynn and escape the whole Russia investigation.
We can’t think of a more appropriate network to break this news besides CNN. Trump has been attacking the network during his entire presidency, and the network hasn’t taken the abuse lightly. Trump has made enemies with the press, and he is going down as more information comes to light.
