A Grenade Without a Pin Just Dropped On Mike Pence’s Lap

President Donald Trump faces new legal troubles stemming from recent developments in the sprawling federal investigations into his web of corruption. We recently learned that Trump’s inaugural committee fundraising is being criminally investigated, both in terms of where the money came from, and where it went. Now it turns out Vice President Mike Pence is caught smack in the middle of the scandal.

Trump originally put Chris Christie in charge of the transition, but then quickly fired him and replaced him with Mike Pence.

It turns out Trump’s decision to fire Christie had something to do with Trump’s desire to pocket the money, according to the Michael Lewis book The Fifth Risk, which was first reported by Daily Kos.

Check out this rather profane passage from the book:

“Trump was apoplectic, actually yelling, You’re stealing my money! You’re stealing my fucking money! What the fuck is this?? Seeing Bannon, Trump turned on him and screamed, Why are you letting him steal my fucking money? Bannon and Christie together set out to explain to Trump federal law. […] To which Trump replied, Fuck the law. I don’t give a fuck about the law. I want my fucking money. Bannon and Christie tried to explain that Trump couldn’t have both his money and a transition.”

You don’t need to be detective Colombo to realize what’s going on here. Donald Trump fired Chris Christie as the head of the transition team, because Christie wouldn’t let him simply steal the money. Trump then decided to put Mike Pence in his place, and then the money disappeared.

Did Trump think Pence was too stupid to realize the money was being stolen? Or did Trump put Pence in charge because he knew Pence would help him steal the money?

Legal experts say Mueller is looking into that possibility.

Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said on Friday that multiple laws were broken by the White House inauguration spending and Trump likely knew what was going on.
