The examples of Trump's willingness to break the truth, documented by Special Prosecutor Robert Müller, are Legion. Here are just a few of them:
Trump's weak view of the value of the truth-clarification scrolls down in his administration. Again, the Mueller report documents a series of cases in which the presidential aides have lied, either because they think they want it, or because it has normalized it to the point where they no longer feel It's the wrong thing.
"The president has lost confidence in director Comey in recent months, and the DOJ [Department of Justice] lost confidence in the director, Comey." The bipartisan members of Congress made it clear they had lost confidence in director Comey of the FBI had lost confidence in their director. "
Pressed by reporters about this last comment ̵
It turns out that this was not the case. Mueller wrote about the following episode:
"Sanders told the bureau that her reference to hearing of" countless members of the FBI "was a" tongue failure. "She also recalled that her statement in a separate press conference that FBI agents in Betty had lost confidence was a comment she made "in the heat of the moment" based on nothing. "  Commented on Fox News Channel Thursday night Sanders this discrepancy in this way: "I admit that I had a tongue break when I used the word" countless ", but it is not untrue … that there are a number of current and past FBI agents agreed with the
But at least what she said to the Special Representative's office is untrue. She said her claim that "countless members" of the FBI were glad to see Comey go "was founded on nothing".
That such a culture should be in the highest elected office of the Country exists It is no shock to anyone who has become aware of the past few years. It was evident from day one of the administration when Trump's then press secretary Sean Spicer was put outside to insist, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that the founders, who considered Trump sworn in, as the 45th president, were the largest American President was history.
On small and big ways since that day in January 2017, Trump and his circle have repeatedly shown a willingness to disguise, distort, and literally lie, when it suits their needs.
What the miller report did then did not reveal that this culture existed in the White House. The constant accumulation of facts and data showed how ubiquitous the willingness to be honest is not only in the Oval Office, but also in the people who work for the President.
It's a stark and surprising set of facts. And not one that even the most loyal Trump ally would rightly deny.
