CNN’s Anderson Cooper tried to force Jim Jordan, a Republican congressman from Ohio and a dark-horse candidate for Speaker if Republicans hold the house, to admit Trump had lied to the American public.
“The president lies a lot, Jim Comey says,” Cooper said. “Do you think he lies a lot?”
“I do not,” Jordan said. “I think Jim Comey has leaked information through a friend to the New York Times for the stated purpose of getting a special counsel.
“I think Jim Comey took over an investigation that had never happened before … it had always been the attorney general who announced the findings whether they would prosecute or no. I think Jim Comey, as you said earlier, is gone because of how he handled the Clinton investigation and how he started the Trump investigation.”
Cooper pressed on.
“I mean … but come on, you have to admit this president said things that were just demonstrably not true time and time again. The list is a very long one — almost on a daily basis.” – READ MORE[give_form id=”79809″] [contentcards url=”https://www.aim.org/aim-column/cooper-tries-to-force-congressman-to-admit-trump-is-a-liar/” target=”_blank”]
