Yes he lied to the Vice President. He should have been fired for that. But that is not what these Congressional hearing are all about. It’s an attempt by Yates, the former intelligences director and the Liberal Left to create a biased picture against Trump connecting Trump to a mistake that Flynn made! Both Yates and…

At the dinner, the electricity was gone, the glamour and glitz were gone. Neither the president nor his White House staff came. Even Press Secretary Sean Spicer begged off. The idea of a convivial evening together of our media and political establishments is probably dead for the duration of the Trump presidency. Until Jan. 20, 2021, it appears, we are an us vs. them country. As for the Washington Hilton’s…
