McFarland Lied to Congress on Flynn-Russia Contacts

K.T. McFarland, President Trump's former deputy national security adviser and a member of his transition team, appeared to have misled the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on what she knew about communications between former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and former Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, according to an email exchange obtained by The New York Times. ... [Sen. Cory] Booker told the Times the email suggests McFarland gave false testimony. "If this is the case, this is an alarming development, and another example of a pattern of deception on the part of Trump's closest associates regarding their connections and communications to Russian government officials," he added.

If one person in the administration forgets something on a form it is a mistake.

If every person in the administration forgets something on a form it is a coordinated coverup.

We've really got to learn what these people are hiding. It must be strange and terrible.

Best and the Brightest...
Draining the Swamp...
No connections to Russia...
Blah, blah, blah...

ANYONE who says Hillary was too crooked and thinks this POS and his administration isn't worse... Well I really want to try the drugs they are on because it is certainly an altered reality.

Um, couldn't it be just a really crazy coincidence? Yeah, that's it.

No, wait, it doesn't matter. Yeah. BFD!

Also, but Hillary!

It was no coincidence. Trump's little inner circle of rookies made a couple mistakes ~ (1) arrogant enough to think they were "special" and (2) believing that Trump could get them off the hook when they got caught.

SURPRISE!!

Lock him up. The head of the NSC lying to Congress is about as serious as it gets.

EVERYONE in the intelligence community feels its their duty to lie, even to Congress, and do so incessantly.
