Congressman Cummings is going directly at the White House for what he calls a “cover up” for Michael Flynn. Flynn apparently took 2 payments from foreign governments and to my knowledge, both payments were already known for years through media reports, and they both preceded the Trump administration’s existence. As White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer explained yesterday, the White House is unable to produce documents that it does not have possession of.
Cummings sees that as a cover up. The reality is that this is a witch hunt.
Cummings has yet to pursue Lois Lerner, Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, or John Podesta for crimes they’ve committed. In those 4 specific cases there is public evidence of crimes being committed. Specifically in the case of Podesta, the crime is the exact crime Flynn is being accused of, yet We don’t see Cummings writing letters to Podesta asking for justification of his receiving money from foreign governments or his failure to register as a foreign agent.
This is hypocrisy at its finest. Perhaps Flynn is guilty and this investigation is warranted. I’m willing to concede that point, but to only pursue Flynn is the reason why no one can take Cummings or Congress seriously.
True justice requires all of these individuals to be scrutinized and investigated. Not just the one that worked for the Trump administration.
