Vice President-elect Mike Pence will serve as Chairman of the Presidential Transition Team
WEST SACRMANETO CA (IFS) -- Attorney General Sally Yates gave a "Head's Up" on General Flynn, with information from Director Comey of the FBI, which in turn was passed up the change of command to the head of the transition team. Vice President-elect Mike Pence was the head of the team. It appears that he was notified about General Flynn in the beginning. But Flynn was fired for lying to the Vice President. Of course this all started on the 9th of November, 2016. Pence always knew about Flynn. Why did it take over 65 days for Pence to get upset with Flynn and get him fired? - khs
