Pence releases financial info, Trump plans to

While organizers say the PAC's launch has been months in the making, no previous vice presidents have taken the same course of action, and it comes a day after a federal special prosecutor was named to probe President Donald Trump and his administration for possible collusion with a foreign power during last year's election campaign.

"Mike Pence was a major player in the scandals enveloping the Trump administration, and no amount of spinning and leaking to reporters from him and his team can change that fact", writes Oliver Willis of the liberal website Shareblue.

On Wednesday, the New York Times broke news that Trump's presidential transition team reportedly had full knowledge that Michael Flynn-who would go on to be the president's first national security adviser-was under FBI investigation for secretly working as a paid lobbyist for the Turkish government.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is preparing to go public with information about how a year ago shaped his personal fortune, a White House official says.

"He wants to support House and Senate members who are helping pass the president's agenda".

Unlike his boss, who has raged in tweets and speeches, Pence has been careful in his comments about the multiple probes into the campaign's contacts with Russian Federation.

It's been said that the next election cycle begins the day after the last one.

On May 19, Cummings accused Pence of either misleading the public or incompetence.

Pence has largely remained in the background of the political firestorms that surround President Trump, from an FBI investigation into suspected ties between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign to the controversial firing of FBI director James Comey.

Pence could argue that Trump technically did accept the recommendations of the Justice Department.

Two days later, Trump said in an interview with NBC News that he was planning to fire Comey anyway and had considered it since the start of his administration.

During a speech to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce this Thursday, Pence only referred to the current turmoil to ensure attendees that "Trump will never stop fighting for the issues that matter most to the American people". Multiple presidents served out the remainder of their terms without vice presidents after the man they initially appointed to the office died. "It will always be awkward", Mr Schlapp said. "Everyone, regardless of what your political views are, should respect our president", said Jackie Moore of North Fort Myers.

The paths to a Pence presidency are many, and they are widening. It was Flynn's undisclosed contacts with Russian officials that led to his forced resignation in February. A PolitiFact comparison of vice presidential candidates during the 2016 campaign rated 42 percent of Pence's statements as mostly false or false, compared to 23 percent for Democratic candidate Tim Kaine.

The Politico story contained these lines: "The pining for Pence is nothing new, however".

"The general theory on having a leadership PACs is that it's good to have friends and even better to have friends that owe you favors, because you never know when you'll have to call them in", said Sheila Krumholz, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics, which studies money in politics.

Beyond supporting candidates and funding Pence's non-official travel, the PAC will also transfer email addresses and donor information now trapped in his gubernatorial accounts to a federal one.

The Great America Committee, registered with the Federal Elections Commission on Wednesday, is created to raise Pence's visibility and to channel funds to Republicans running for Congress in 2018. At the beginning of the meeting, Trump emphasized that Georgia is an “important ally” and a “strategic partner” of the US, the Government of Georgia's press office reported. I suspect we're still a few major revelations away from that happening, even if cracks in his Republican support are beginning to appear.
