New investigation launched into Michael Flynn's ties to Russia. White House spokesperson now blaming Obama.

Courtesy of CBS News: 

The ranking member of the House Oversight Committee said he doesn't understand why the White House is "covering up for Michael Flynn" after President Trump fired him. 

At a Thursday morning press conference with members of the House and Senate, Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Maryland, said that the office of the Defense Department inspector general will be launching its own investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's dealings with the Russian government, specifically his apparent failure to disclose payments by a foreign source. 

"General Flynn's attorney says he discussed his trip to Moscow with the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency), but we have no evidence, not a shred, that he disclosed his payments which is what he emoluments clause is all about, from RT, the Kremlin-backed propaganda outlet. And we have no evidence -- zilch -- that he obtained permission from the secretary of the Army and secretary of State to accept any foreign government payments as required by law," said Cummings. 

"[The White House] should be bending over backwards to help us. It does not make any sense, and it makes the American people think the White House has something to hide," he said. "Here is a paper trail that the White House does not want our committee to follow, but let it be known we will follow it and we will follow it with everything we got." 

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has called the Oversight Committee's request for documents from the transition period "ridiculous," and he also said that everything under discussion occurred before he was employed by the Trump administration. 

That's right the newest White House strategy is to blame the Obama Administration for not vetting Michael Flynn better.

This was Sean Spicer yesterday.

In short the Trump Administration is blaming Obama for not doing the job that THEY should have done before appointing Flynn National Security Adviser.

However they are forgetting one important detail.
Yes, yes he was.

So knowing this WHY would the Trump Administration not investigate why that happened and then conduct their own security clearance?

    Like the all mighty Democrats that are the cause of all of little donnies problems, so is President Obama. Really, blaming Obama for everything is getting really old.

    Most employers have a 90-day probation period, after which if the employee doesn’t meet company standards they can be fired.

    Little donnie has been given 100 days and hasn’t accomplished anything except for taking vacation time (golf), wasting taxpayer money (security and upgrades to his properties), enriching his family, terrorizing the American public (trying to take away their healthcare, threatening war), insulting just about every foreign leader and still has no clue how the government works or what the role of the president is.

    Little Donnie-your fired for incompetency and collusion with the enemy.

      Let us also not forget that all the things Flynn is being raked over the coals for happened AFTER he was fired by Obama. Trying to blame Obama for their own lack of vetting is beyond absurd, even for them.

    I thought I couldn't be surprised by this administration any more, but I continue to be stunned by them. I can't help but think what would happen if President Obama or Hillary had pulled these stunts. The Republicans are masters at stoking the fire of outrage among its supporters. I sometimes wish Democrats did the same thing. But, honestly, I'm glad we are more critical thinkers and are not easily manipulated by crazy on air infotainers.

    Rachel Maddow Reveals The Secret To Silencing Trump: Ask Him About The Flynn-Russia Scandal

    "If you want to turn this president to stone, ask him about Mike Flynn."

    ...Whether it’s childish Twitter tantrums or unhinged press conferences, there are very few moments when the country has had the privilege of experiencing a silent Donald Trump.

    But when it comes to a subject on which the American people want and deserve some real answers – the ongoing scandal linking Trump and his associates to Russia – this president has nothing to say.

    His silence speaks volumes.

    --Senate Democrats hatch plan that could leave Donald Trump with little choice but to resign

    --Second report says Donald Trump and advisers caught on tape plotting treasonous deal with Russia

    --Dmitry Rybolovlev is suddenly back in the U.S., and he’s once again near a Donald Trump event

    --Either Jason Chaffetz is about to resign, or the Republican Party is trying to dump him

    --All along, the Democrats have been setting up Mike Pence for a Trump-Russia fall

    The cold hard reality for those who oppose Donald Trump is that this will be a four year fight to run out the clock and ensure that his administration does as little harm as possible. Even if the Democrats sweep the midterms and then impeach Trump, they’ll still be stuck with “President Mike Pence” for the rest of the term – and they’ll have to run out the clock on him as well. But it turns out the Democrats may have already set up Pence to where he’d be crippled out of the gate.

      Sessions recuses himself from any Michael Flynn investigation

      Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday that his recusal from Justice Department investigations into the 2016 campaign for president will extend into inquiries into the activities of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, under fire for his ties to foreign governments.

      “My recusal deals with the campaign issues,” Sessions told NBC’s “Today” show. “But I would expect not to be involved in this one.”

      "You would recuse yourself from any decision dealing with general Flynn?" asked Today anchor Matt Lauer.

      "Yeah," Sessions replied.

    Why won’t Congress really investigate the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia?

    ...New hearings may well be in the offing. But committee Republicans know that they examine Trump’s Russia connections at their own political peril. Partisan polarization will likely prevent Congress from keeping the president in check, as the Constitution’s framers envisioned.

    Mike Pence Is Going Down For The Russia Scandal Because He Never Vetted Mike Flynn

    For those who are worried that if Trump goes down for the Russia scandal, Vice President Mike Pence will be in charge, keep in mind that Pence in was in charge of the transition that never vetted Mike Flynn. The entire Trump administration is knee deep in the Russia scandal.

      That would be good. Pence is evil. Trump may be simply stupid and incompetent. Pence knows exactly what he's doing, and he doesn't care. His record as governor of Indiana is proof.
