Tapper on Trump’s Denial of ‘Another Comey Lie’: The President Is ‘Prone to Twisting the Truth’

Jake Tapper reminded viewers of President Trump‘s relationship with the truth when reporting on one of his early tweets today. The CNN anchor opened State of the Union with Trump’s focus on “discrediting” the Russia investigation, particularly with this tweet: “The President, of course, is prone to twisting the truth when defending himself,” Tapper said. “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.'” Watch above, via CNN. [image via screengrab] — — Follow Josh on Twitter: @feldmaniac
