The show really means a lot to me and was there when I went through hard times. Things sort of…happened around the time the episodes of Northwest Mansion Mystery and Not What He Seems aired. A Tale of Two Stans hit pretty close to home too. Gravity Falls has become a consistent comfort to me during those times.
Anyway, I’m super glad to have worked on this project along with many amazing artists!!!!! Hope you guys enjoy my contribution-!!
I have a series of medical tests late this afternoon, so I won’t have a chance to post a recap of Sally Yates’ testimony. Her hearing is about to start now.
1) NBC News broke the news this morning that three Obama officials have confirmed that, shortly after the election, President Obama warned Trump not to hire General Flynn, whom he had fired in 2014. And, of course, Trump had to fire Flynn three weeks after he hired him to be National Security Adviser because Flynn colluded with Russia–and Turkey–and lied to VP Pence about it.
2) Strongly urge you to read up on Sally Yates’ career if you haven’t already. She has a long, distinguished legal career prosecuting members of both parties. She’s highly esteemed by peers of all stripes. And Trump fired her in January from her job as Acting U.S. Attorney General because she refused to enforce his first travel ban Executive Order. Let’s note the 3rd Circuit separately ruled that Yates’ legal assessment was the correct one.
3) Yates is about to testify under oath now. In a stupid and venal attempt to deflect attention, this morning on Twitter, Trump both attacked Yates AND falsely blamed President Obama for hiring Flynn.
Let’s pay close attention. Yates has tremendous integrity and pertinent information. Today we learn what Yates knew about Flynn and Russia, what she relayed to Trump, and why she opted to get fired rather than enforce a travel ban she knew to be Unconstitutional.
