Mike Pence Is F*cked After The Bombshell James Comey Just Dropped

While alleged president Donald Trump is up to his eyeballs in scandals, impeachment has been on the minds of many of us but that’s a process starting with articles of impeachment, etc. But if the former reality show star’s impeachment ever comes to fruition, we would end up with President Mike Pence. If he is ever found to be complicit in a coverup of Russia ties and/or mixed up in the Michael Flynn scandal, we’d end up with President Paul Ryan. After Ryan, it would be President Orrin Hatch. That said, don’t stick a fork in your eye out of frustration just yet (I tried it. It won’t make you feel better anyway).

As for Vice-President Mike Pence, he might be doomed before a potential presidency could ever take place, thanks to the highly anticipated testimony of former FBI Director James Comey on Thursday.

It was revealed in Comey’s testimony today that Trump pressured him to drop the investigation into Michael Flynn, his disgraced former National Security Adviser.

But then this happened and it’s relevant:

Buried in his testimony, which contained one bombshell after another, was this little tidbit: Pence, who was the head of Trump’s transition team, knew damn well that Flynn was compromised by not one but two foreign governments — and he allowed him to be named National Security Adviser anyway.

In a moment that went largely unnoticed, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) asked Comey if Pence was aware of Flynn’s connections to Russia. The former head of the FBI said that yes, Pence knew. He apparently just didn’t care.

“My understanding is that he was,” Comey replied, adding that he got this information from then acting Attorney General Sally Yates, who also ended up fired after angering Trump.

Watch:

Trump has been firing people who are investigating his administration’s potential ties to Russia and that totally doesn’t make him look guilty at all (wink wink). Comey is saying that Pence knew about Michael Flynn but the Trump administration hired him anyway in what will go down as the worst example of extreme vetting ever.

Now, as for the rest of the Trump administration: How much did they know?
