Friday night MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow took a long hard look at the plea deal worked out between attorney’s for former national security adviser Mike Flynn and special counsel Robert Mueller and concluded that Flynn’s statement opens the door for the investigators to take a long hard look at Vice President Mike Pence’s involvement.
Noting that Pence oversaw the Trump transition team, Maddow pointed that he likely was one of those who was aware that Flynn spoke withe the Russians about easing sanctions.
“Vice President Pence insisted publicly more than once that Mike Flynn never talked about sanctions with the Russians. That was always a false statement,” Maddow began. “Well, now we know that multiple members of the Trump transition team knew that was a false statement when Mike Pence said it. So, why’d they let him say it?”
“Honestly, what we learned today also raises the question of whether or not Mike Pence knew that was a false statement when he said it,” the MSNBC host continued. “Well, we can report exclusively tonight that Vice President Mike Pence has not spoken to Robert Mueller or his team of investigators nor has been asked to. We can also report tonight that the Vice President has not been asked to hand over any documents to the Mueller investigation, but given what just emerged today in federal court, one has to expect that he knows that is coming.”

"If you think it's such a great idea, if you think it is such a great idea to reopen the economy, you can lead by example by going to a grocery store and bagging groceries. You can do it today."

But proposals to put them to use immediately for more patients have proven highly controversial, with many experts warning there is not yet enough evidence of their safety or effectiveness against COVID-19.
