GOP Rep. Jim Jordan: I've Never Heard President Trump Lie
GOP lawmaker: Trump hasn't said anything inaccurate
While discussing James Comey and President Donald Trump, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) dodged questions about if he thinks the President has said anything untruthfu...
In an April 2018 interview, Republican Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) told Anderson Cooper that he has never heard President Donald Trump tell a lie.
During the interview with Jordan, Cooper mentioned that former FBI Director James Comey told 60 Minutes that Trump “lies constantly, about matters big and small”. Jordan disagreed with Comey's characterization of Trump.
When asked if he thought Trump lies a lot, Jordan said that he does not consider the president untruthful -- and then he pivoted back to Comey, accusing the former FBI director of leaking information to the press.
According to the Washington Post's fact checker, as of February 17th, Trump has made 8,718 false or misleading claims since taking office.
