Feeling Rebloggy

Keep in mind that reports say that approximately one hour before Flynn resigned on Monday, Trump's representative Kellyanne Conway said Flynn had Trump's support (as if Flynn was going to continue in his position). 

On Tuesday, Dan Rather was one of many journalists asking how long Trump had known about Flynn’s deception and why he did not act sooner. 


“We are still less than a month into the Trump Presidency, and many are asking that question made famous by Tennessee Senator Howard Baker those many years ago: ‘What did the President know, and when did he know it?’” Rather wrote, quoting Baker’s question about President Richard Nixon during the Senate’s investigation of the 1972 break-in at Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate building.  
...Rather called for an independent investigation of the matter, arguing that the administration and the Republican Congress have forfeited their right to be trusted on these matters. 
“Damn the lies, full throttle forward on the truth,” he concluded.

Paul Manafort

Who: Trump’s former campaign manager who worked as a consultant for a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine
When: Aug. 19, 2016
The story: It’s still unclear exactly why Manafort resigned, but it came just five days after an explosive New York Times article that put attention on Trump’s ties to Russia. The newspaper alleged, on Aug. 14., that Manafort was owed a staggering $12.7 million for lobbying and advisory work he’d carried out for Ukrainian leader Viktor Yanukovych and his pro-Russian Party of Regions between 2007 and 2012. Yanukovych, who Manafort helped rise to power in 2010, fled to Russia after the Ukranian revolution in February 2014.
It’s unconfirmed whether Manafort received the Yanukovych payments, and his lawyer insists that he didn’t, but allegations that the adviser was operating within the U.S. to represent Ukrainian and Russian interests were reported by the Associated Press.

Just two days before his resignation from his position as Trump’s campaign manager, the AP published that Manafort worked to “secretly route at least $2.2 million in payments to two prominent Washington lobbying firms in 2012” on behalf of Yanukovych’s party. Manafort is currently subject to an FBI investigation because of his involvement in these financial transactions.

After having resigned, Manafort returned in December to informally advise Trump on his cabinet picks. The extent of his influence is not publicly known.
