BTRTN: What Does Pence Know, and When Did He Know It?

Born To Run The Numbers on a question that isn't getting much ink: if Mueller has an open-and-shut case on Trump, can Mike Pence avoid the debris field? And what does that mean for the line of succession?


Excerpts: "If, indeed, it is discovered that Mike Pence was present during a discussion that is proffered as evidence of obstruction of justice, how can he not be impeached as well, simultaneously? If Mike Pence, the second most senior officer of government, was in any way exposed to an act of obstruction and said and did nothing about it, he is essentially a party to the cover-up. There is no such thing as 'only obstructing justice a tiny little bit.' You are innocent, or you are guilty...
Perhaps the most interesting tidbit about Mike Pence is that he was actually one of the people who was told to 'clear the room' – along with the far more publicized hall loiterer, Jeff Sessions – while Donald Trump asked only Comey to stay inside the Oval Office for the now famous February 14, 2017 meeting. It was after Sessions, Pence, and four other senior officials were asked to clear the room that Trump allegedly asked Comey if he could 'let go' of the investigation into Flynn. Are we to believe that when Trump asked for that private time that neither Sessions nor Pence knew why Trump excluded them from the conversation? Are we expected to assume that once Comey emerged from the meeting that Pence and Sessions had no discussion about the Comey meeting with the President? When Pence finally heard Comey’s account of the meeting in Congressional testimony, are we to assume that Pence never asked Trump to give his account of the meeting?"
