Trump admits he did not tape James Comey. Trump is suggesting that he thinks the Comey story may have changed because Comey believed that Trump recorded conversations between the two.
Hold on just a second, Trump is suggesting that he lied about taping Comey because it would make Comey change his story? Trump was using the tape lie to influence testimony of a witness testifying before Congress? Trump was using a tape lie to influence a witness in an investigation by a special prosecutor?
Did Trump just admit to lying with an intent to influence a witness?
He did, and what is disturbing, is this lie is part of a pattern with Trump. Trump lives in a fantasy world of alternative facts, aka lies. He lies regularly, he uses his lying as a propaganda tool for his base. He does this because he knows his base will swallow the lying hook, line and sinker.
Trump is comfortable with lying. Trump knows his base will say, Trump is not as big a liar as Hillary…lock her up.
The Hillary diversion doesn't work because Trump just admitted he lied about taping Comey. Trump lied to influence Comey’s story, to get Comey to change his story during testimony in both Congressional and legal proceedings.
It simply isn't acceptable for any President to lie to get a witness in any proceeding to change his or her story. Such behavior is beneath the office of President. Such behavior indicates Trump is under investigation because he lies. Like Nixon, Trump’s lies will catch up with him.
