Hillary Clinton is repeating her most recent lie about the FBI saying she “didn’t lie” again. At this point, even CNN (and most of the rest of the mainstream media) is calling this an outright falsehood. Sadly, Clinton doesn’t seem to care and Clinton voters don’t seem all that perturbed about her very public, and repeated lying. More on this from the indomitable Jeff Dunetz at the Lid…
Obviously Hillary Clinton does not read Politifact or Glenn Kessler’s “Fact Checker” column in the Washington Post. Last Sunday, Ms. Clinton told Chris Wallace of Fox News, “Director Comey said my answers were truthful,and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people.” Within 24 hours both Kessler and Politifact said the Democratic Party candidate for president was
full of cra, I mean lying.
Interviewed by Brandon Rittiman of Denver, Colorado TV station KUSA on Thursday, the Democratic Party’s liar-in-chief repeated her claim, “... as the FBI said, everything that I’ve said publicly has been consistent and truthful with what I’ve told them.”
The truth is that the FBI Director refused to say whether or not she lied to the public. As Glenn Kessler reported:
When House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) asked whether Clinton had lied to the American public, Comey dodged: “That’s a question I’m not qualified to answer. I can speak about what she said to the FBI.”
At another point, Comey told Congress: “I really don’t want to get in the business of trying to parse and judge her public statements. And so I think I’ve tried to avoid doing that sitting here. … What matters to me is what did she say to the FBI.
Politifact points to the same quote.
Hillary did make one accurate point…
