Throughout Trump’s presidency, Vice President Mike Pence has played the innocent card. His friend Michael Flynn just took the fall in Mueller’s probe after the president fired Flynn earlier this year for lying to Pence and the FBI.
However, analysts question if Pence was as oblivious to Flynn’s connection to foreign governments as he claimed? (Watch video below)
Americans who are watching Mueller’s probe unfold are questioning who will be the next person to get slapped with an indictment? There is speculation that it could be Don Jr. or Jared Kushner.
CNN’s congressional correspondent, Man Raju, believes Flynn’s guilty plea proves Mueller is investigating Pence. CNN Host Jim Sciutto asked Raju, “I was going to ask you about this, Manu. The timeline is very relevant here. Flynn is interviewed on Jan 24, 2016 by the FBI. Sally Yates, two days later and acting attorney general, raises a red flag because it was apparent he had lied in that interview. and then, it is a couple of weeks later when the president has a meeting with with James Comey and says, ‘Hey, lay off my pal, Michael Flynn.’”
Raju replied, “Yeah, and keeping him on staff, Flynn, for a couple of weeks afterwards. Despite having that warning, very blatant warning from Sally Yates.”
Raju then explained his take on Pence:
“It is also because of what he told the vice president. But I think the vice president is someone that Mueller undoubtedly will be looking at, and people on Capitol Hill will be looking at.”
He continued, “He was head of the transition team. He perhaps may have had some sense of these discussions that were going on. Even if he was not named in that court document today, it does not mean he may not have been aware of some of the things that were happening here. That’s one of the key questions that I think Mueller is going to have to explore.”
