Wednesday Evening Thread: Hump Day Wind Down

HAHAHA!!!

Ryan and McCarthy’s spokesmen when they were warned they were getting caught in the lie

Definitely some nervous Nellie’s at the White House tonight!

Officials say multiple grand jury subpoenas and records requests have been issued in connection with the two men during the past six months in the ongoing probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian attempts to influence the election, an inquiry that will now be overseen by former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

Oh Boy!

    McCarthy said last year he believed Putin was paying off Trump

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy told House Speaker Paul Ryan a year ago he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin was paying off Donald Trump, according to a report Wednesday evening.
    “There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy said during a private discussion on Capitol Hill, according to a Washington Post report of the June 15, 2016, conversation. McCarthy was referring to Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., who has a reputation for defending Putin and Russia.

    Trump Team Knew Flynn Was Under Investigation Before He Came to White House

    WASHINGTON
    — Michael T. Flynn told President Trump’s transition team weeks before
    the inauguration that he was under federal investigation for secretly
    working as a paid lobbyist for Turkey during the campaign, according to
    two people familiar with the case.

    Despite
    this warning, which came about a month after the Justice Department
    notified Mr. Flynn of the inquiry, Mr. Trump made Mr. Flynn his national
    security adviser. The job gave Mr. Flynn access to the president and
    nearly every secret held by American intelligence agencies.

    – – –Mar. 10, 2017, 7:36 AM– -Top Democrat sent letter to Mike Pence in November warning of Michael Flynn’s Turkey lobbying

    President Donald Trump was not aware that his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, was being paid to lobby for Turkish interests in the months before the US election, the White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, said Thursday.

    “I don’t believe that was known,” Spicer said when asked whether Trump knew about Flynn’s work before he appointed Flynn to his Cabinet.
    In an interview with Fox News on Thursday night, Vice President Mike Pence said he was not aware either and that he only first heard about it as reports surfaced Thursday that Flynn had registered as a foreign agent with the Justice Department earlier this week.
    – – – -SNIP- —
    But Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, sent Pence a letter on November 18 requesting more information about the potential conflicts of interest posed by Flynn’s lobbying work.

    Cummings sent the letter four days after both The Daily Caller and Politico reported that Flynn’s consulting firm, Flynn Intel Group Inc., had been hired to lobby for Turkish interests.

    “Recent news reports have revealed that Lt. Gen. Flynn was receiving classified briefings during the presidential campaign while his consulting firm, Flynn Intel Group, Inc., was being paid to lobby the U.S. Government on behalf of a foreign government’s interests,” Cummings wrote.

    “Lt. Gen. Flynn’s General Counsel and Principal, Robert Kelley,
    confirmed that they were hired by a foreign company to lobby for Turkish interests, stating: ‘They want to keep posted on what we all want to beinformed of: the present situation, the transition between President Obama and President-Elect Trump.’ When asked whether the firm had been hired because of Lt. Gen. Flynn’s close ties to President-elect Trump, Mr. Kelley responded, ‘I hope so.'”

    Pence’s office did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
    – – – -SNIP–

    “If the Vice President had heeded my warnings, it’s clear now he
    could have prevented the problems that occurred with Lt. General Flynn. Republicans in Congress are doing a disservice to the White House and our national security interests by not conducting rigorous and serious oversight of the administration, especially to help catch issues early and address them.”

    – —Oliver Lewis (1856–1924) was an African-American jockey in Thoroughbred horse racing. In 1875, Lewis rode in the very first Kentucky Derby on the winning horse, Aristides. Lewis and Aristides took second place in the Belmont Stakes, which is now the third race of the Triple Crown.

    On September 8, 2010 the Newtown Pike Extension in Lexington, Kentucky was named the Oliver Lewis Way in honor of Oliver Lewis. Julie Harp Galbraith, a retired elementary school teacher submitted the winning name. Both of her parents were born and raised in Newtown, Kentucky and ancestors of the Harp Family have lived in the area since the 1790s.– —

    — –Ray Charles Leonard (born May 17, 1956), best known as “Sugar” Ray Leonard, is an American former professional boxer, motivational speaker, and occasional actor. Often regarded as one of the greatest boxers of all time, he competed from 1977 to 1997, winning world titles in five weight divisions; the lineal championship in three weight divisions; as well as the undisputed welterweight title. Leonard was part of “The Fabulous Four”, a group of boxers who all fought each other throughout the 1980s, consisting of himself, Roberto Durán, Thomas Hearns and Marvin Hagler.

    “The Fabulous Four” created a wave of popularity in the lower weight classes that kept boxing relevant in the post-Muhammad Ali era, during which Leonard defeated future fellow International Boxing Hall of Fame inductees Hearns, Durán, Hagler, and Wilfred Benítez. Leonard was also the first boxer to earn more than $100 million in purses, and was named “Boxer of the Decade” in the 1980s. The Ring magazine named him Fighter of the Year in 1979 and 1981, while the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA) named him Fighter of the Year in 1976, 1979, and 1981.— -:>)
