CNN’s Tapper: The President Is ‘Prone to Twisting the Truth’

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” host Jake Tapper said President Donald Trump ” was prone to twisting the truth when defending himself.”

Tapper said, “This morning President Trump is focused squarely on discrediting the Russia investigation. He was up rather early, sending his first tweet at 6:15 Eastern about former FBI Director, James Comey, saying, ‘I never asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn. Just more fake news covering another Comey lie!’ The President, of course, is prone to twisting the truth when defending himself.”

He added “Let’s be clear, Comey said in his sworn testimony, under oath, based on contemporaneous notes he took and shared with close advisers, that the President privately told him, ‘I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.’ Now, this all comes after President Trump’s former National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty Friday to lying to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian ambassador.”
