The House Republicans’ report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election claims that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia — despite the fact that it also contains a potentially damaging new piece of evidence against former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Specifically, the report claims that both Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr., met with former Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak at his private residence in early December of 2015 — just two months before Flynn would formally join the Trump campaign as a foreign policy adviser.

What’s more, the report says that Flynn Jr. sent an email to the Russian embassy after the meeting that described it as “very productive.”

Despite this, the report says that investigators did not reach out to the Flynns to learn the nature of this meeting because both of them had made clear their “intent to assert their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.”

Days after the meeting at Kislyak’s house, Flynn flew to Moscow and attended a dinner commemorating the 10th anniversary of the founding of Russian state media outlet RT.com that was also attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?" Trump asked while continuing to lie about the election being corrupt.

This Monday was a reassuring day for democracy, but a devastating blow for supporters of President Donald Trump still holding out hope that he'll stay in office past January 2021.

Michigan certified the results of Joe Biden's victory, thwarting Trump's hope to overturn the outcome. And the General Services Administrator Emily Murphy finally provided Biden's team with the resources to fund his transition, a move even approved of by Trump himself, though he vowed to keep fighting:

Arizona Republican likens Trump’s loss to Japan getting nuked while losing WW II — but as a good thing

President Donald Trump on Monday allowed President-elect Joe Biden's transition to proceed -- while vowing he would never concede.

Despite Trump losing the election, some Trump supporters are refusing to accept the outcome.

One Arizona Republican in Congress, Paul Gosar, drew upon the historical knowledge him learned on his way to becoming a dentist in a bizarre analogy he posted on Twitter.

Gosar suggested the Trump movement would be like an Imperial Japanese soldier in World War II who refused to surrender until 1974.
