Pence on New Flynn Revelations: ‘Affirmation’ of Trump’s Decision to Ask for Resignation

Fox News’ Bret Baier tonight asked Vice President Mike Pence for his reaction to the revelation that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn received over half a million dollars for consulting work that may have benefited the Turkish government.

Baier brought up Flynn filing with the DOJ this week as a foreign agent and asked if that means the White House “would have had to fire him anyway.” Even if he hadn’t lied about the nature of his call with the Russian ambassador.

Pence said he only heard about this today and the news about Flynn is an “affirmation of the president’s decision to ask General Flynn to resign.”

Sean Spicer said today, when asked about whether the White House knew about this, “I don’t believe that that was known.”
