The White House has declined to answer most questions about former FBI director James Comey’s testimony, except this one: Is the president a liar?
The question was prompted after Comey said Thursday during his testimony that he feared the president “might lie” about the nature of his conversations with Trump. Comey added that the White House’s explanations for why he was fired were “lies, plain and simple.”
White House principal deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn’t hesitate to rebut Comey when asked by a reporter during a briefing on Thursday.
“No, I can definitely say the president is not a liar,” Sanders said. “I think it’s frankly insulting that that question would be asked.”
