HARD TRUTHS: Sally Yates laid some on a congressional committee today.
  • HARD TRUTHS: Sally Yates laid some on a congressional committee today.
In another universe, the  Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing today would amount to a bombshell. From testimony:

* President Obama warned Donald Trump against hiring Michael Flynn for his security team.

* Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates alerted the White House this year that Flynn could be  "essentially blackmailed by the Russians."

* Yates told White House Counsel Donald McGahn on January 26  that she had information that statements by Vice President Mike Pence, based on his conversations with Flynn, were false.

* Yates said McGahn asked her, "Why does it matter to DOJ if one White House official lies to another White House official?"

* Yates said the Trump travel ban from certain Muslim countries wasn't lawful.

* "James Clapper: Some news outlets unwittingly amplified Russian propaganda during the 2016 election"
.
That's the news. So far.

But ..... Hillary's e-mail.
