Last night, if you read the LAMESTREAM media, or this morning, if you are sensible and wait to get your news from your Wonkette, you learned that Mike Flynn, the disgraced former national security adviser/actual literal foreign agent, had in fact informed the Trump transition team about his teeny little federal investigation, and how he was an actual literal foreign agent being paid by thugs in Turkey to do thuggy Turkey stuff.
You also learned that Mike Flynn, while being paid by Turkey, declined to RAID ISIS because it would have made Turkey 🙁 So that was probably bad!
In charge of the transition team that Mike Flynn notified about his teeny little half-million-dollar payday was Vice President-elect Mike Pence.
Did Mike Pence know? Let’s ask Mike Pence!
NBC’s Hallie Jackson reports!

But is Mike Pence telling the truth????
Sadly, Mike Pence is not. Because he got a letter waaaaay back on November 18, from Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee and Wonkette’s back-to-back and gunning-for-a-threefer Legislative Badass of the Year! And that letter said, “Dear Vice President-elect Mike Pence, This is just a note to Future You letting you know you probably shouldn’t lie about whether or not you knew Mike Flynn, who is about to NOT RAID ISIS BECAUSE TURKEY DOESN’T WANT HIM TO, is being paid so much bank by Turkey and is totally lying about it, because the answer is yes.”
Or you can go here to read the boring version.
Anyway, then Mike Pence lied a bunch about it, and is still lying about it today. Does Mike Pence get to be president?
Wonkette would never lie to you. Now give us money.
