Top Dem Slams ‘Known Liar’ Trump: ‘I Don’t Believe Anything He Says’
A top Congressional Democrat took the gloves off Tuesday night, throwing a punch that could become a frequent talking point leading to the 2018 midterm elections. Speaking on “Erin Burnett OutFront“, New York Congressman Jerry Nadler, who just celebrated his 25th year in Congress, voiced his opinion on President Trump’s denial of reports that FBI Director Christopher Wray had threatened to resign. President Trump had earlier in the day made a statement denying Wray’s alleged resignation threat.
“He didn’t at all. He did not even a little bit. Nope. And he’s gonna do a good job.”
As soon as Erin Burnett recited Trump’s claim, Nadler pounced.
“First of all, the President is a known liar, so I don’t believe anything he says.”
Nadler then added:
“Second of all, the President didn’t deny pressuring and urging the FBI to fire the (FBI) Deputy Director, Mr. McCabe, because he didn’t approve of his role in the investigation of the President. That is highly improper. And, again, it’s part of a concerted campaign to undermine and to derail an official investigation here.”
“OutFront” tweeted a clip of the conversation:

For the record, Congressman Nadler was not just hurling unfounded accusations. The Washington Post has a fact-check database of Trump statements. During his just-concluded first year in office, President Donald Trump made 2,140 statements that were either false or blatantly misleading. That works out to nearly 6 lies per day for EVERY day President Trump has been in office. And the database only includes HIS lies, not lies told on his behalf by White House staffers, and not the lies Trump told that have been constantly repeated by others.
Six lies per day, every day.
Congressman Nadler is right to not believe anything President Trump says.
