The White House has reacted to ousted former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony at the Senate hearing claiming that President Donald Trump lied about the FBI and maintained that Trump is “not a liar”.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said to reporters: “I can definitely say the president is not a liar. I think it is frankly insulting that question would be asked.”
Sanders declined to establish whether the White House has a “taping system” that could have recorded Trump’s talk with Comey at the Oval Office. Sanders simply said: “I have no idea” when asked.
Comey claimed in the Senate testimony that: “The administration chose to defame me, and more importantly, the FBI by saying that the organization was in disarray, that it was poorly run. Those were lies, pure and simple. “
President Trump has yet to comment on Comey’s testimony through his Twitter account but one of his aides has done so. Dan Scavino, Jr., the director of social media gave his opinion on Twitter saying “there’s a reason it never got out that Trump wasn’t being probed as part of the Russia investigation.
Scavino said: “Because if it was leaked that @realDonaldTrump was personally not under investigation- it would have crushed the entire narrative.” Scavino used his personal Twitter to voice out his opinions.
Scavino also tweeted to respond to Comey agreeing under oath that he was confident that no votes in the 2016 presidential election were fixed. He said: “Sorry Dems- nothing there. No votes were altered by Russians in the 2016 election. POTUS or team NEVER asked to stop election investigation.”
