Another lie: Trump Claims He ‘Did Not Know’ Whitaker’s Views on Russia Probe

Trump Claims ignorance about Whittaker's Mueller probe viewsPresident Trump claims he “did not know” about acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker’s previous criticisms of the ongoing Russia investigation but has no problem with them now because he “happened to be right.”

Speaking to Chris Matthews in a Fox News interview that aired Sunday morning, Trump said that Whitaker’s statements—in which he called for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to be defunded or face restrictions—did not have “any effect” on his decision to appoint him Mueller's new boss.

TVNL Comment: Yeah, Trump appointed Whittaker because of his brilliant (non-existent) legal history.  Trump's lies just pour out of his mouth, non-stop.  Ugly.
