Concerning Reince and The FBI

"If the White House chief of staff can make public claims about the supposed conclusions of an FBI investigation, then Director Comey can come clean with the American people," Wyden said.

Here. Let me help!

Although we did not find clear evidence that President or his colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of information stolen by a hostile foreign power,, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, hacked information. In our system, the prosecutors make the decisions about whether charges are appropriate based on evidence the FBI has helped collect. Although we don’t normally make public our recommendations to the prosecutors, we frequently make recommendations and engage in productive conversations with prosecutors about what resolution may be appropriate, given the evidence. In this case, given the importance of the matter, I think unusual transparency is in order.

Re the Flynn resignation.

In tweet form: I couldn't help notice that they put a lot of emphasis on Pence being "misled" So he can be left standing when the rest crumbles. Longer: Not only has the press been operating as if it's possible that Flynn was acting without Trump's knowledge (and direction) but they've given particular credence to the notion that Flynn flat out lied to Pence about the nature of his communication with the Russian ambassador and therefore left him hanging when the media pressed him on the subject. All I can say is that when it comes time for impeachment hearings, Pence's so called innocence is going to come in really handy.
