Lewandowski: ‘I have no obligation to be honest with the media’


-Prior to the Mueller Report
being published in redacted form,
did you ever misrepresent what you did on
behalf of the President? -I can’t think of an instance
where that would have occurred. -Let me show you an interview
that you did on May 14, 2019. Excuse me, I’m going to show it
to you from February 22, 2019. Let me show it to you. Excuse me, excuse me. May 14, 2019. Thank you. -I don’t ever remember
the President ever asking me to get involved
with Jeff Sessions or the Department of Justice
in any way, shape, or form ever. -Okay, so —
-Did you hear that, sir? That was you saying, on MSNBC, you don’t ever remember
the President ever asking you to get involved
with Jeff Sessions or the Department of Justice
in any way, shape, or form. That wasn’t true, was it, sir? -I heard that.
-And that was not true, was it? -I have no obligation to be
honest with the media because they are just
as dishonest as anybody else. -So you’re admitting, sir, you were not being truthful
in that clip, correct? -My interview with Ari Melber?
-Yes. -Can be interpreted
any way you’d like. -Would you like me
to play it again? -You’re welcome to, please. -Play it one more time. -I don’t ever remember
the President ever asking me to get involved
with Jeff Sessions or the Department of Justice
in any way, shape, or form ever. -Okay, so —
-And, sir, it is true, in May 2019,
you absolutely remembered when the President asked you
to deliver a message to the Attorney General
of a speech for him to give related to the special
counsel investigation, isn’t that correct? -I’d have to think about it.
-Are you claiming, sir, that you had been interviewed
by the special counsel about those very events
in which you discussed and you’ve said
was accurately reported in the report a year earlier? Are you saying, sir,
you may have forgotten it by the time
you were interviewed, just before the report
was publicly released? -I’m saying my memory
was clearly much fresher when I actually
gave the interview with
the special counsel’s report. -Sir, is it your testimony
before this committee that, when you said you did not
remember the President ever asking you to get involved
with Jeff Sessions or the Department of Justice, you were saying
you were being truthful? And, sir, I don’t believe
there is any reason to consult
with your counsel. The question is, are you a truth
teller in that interview? -I’m a truth teller every time
I stand before Congress or a committee of jurisdiction
and raise my hand and swear to God under oath. -My question, sir,
is when you said the President never asked you
to get involved with Mr. Sessions —
-I have no obligation to have a candid conversation
with the media whatsoever, just like they have no
obligation to cover me honestly, and they do it inaccurately
all the time. -So you’re admitting that,
on national television, you were lying there? -What I’m saying is they have
been inaccurate on many occasions, and perhaps
I was in inaccurate that time.

  1. Corey wasn't lying to the press, he was lying to us. Anyways, the "Well, they lie, so I can too!" excuse, doesn't cut it. He's running for office, and admitting that he lies to the American people, just like Trump. The bar is so low, we might as well just get rid of it.
    Trump's "yes men" must be required to check their self respect and integrity, at the door.

  2. They are trying to use MSM as admissable evidence. Lewandowski played them all for the lieing, evjl, hypocrite fools that they are. Well done my man. Well done indeed.

  3. These guys are desperately attempting to make him crash and burn on some kind of perjury rap and he knows it. Nadler, just like when Candace Owens ate his lunch, had no idea that Lewandowki was this sharp. The sad thing is that, given the opportunity, they will still keep going after this guy until they ruin him financially.

  4. He got overconfident and got caught in a COLOSSAL gaffe. And from the look on his face, he realized it. Of course, when he lies on camera he is not lying to the media. He is lying to the American people.

  5. From the video clip Cory Lewandowski makes a question in the form of a statement.

    Play the entire video Congressman.

    Great point. Media lies but Congress will use media clips to try to make a witness swear to tell the truth when we know politicians lie for a living.

  6. The media is a joke I would decline to comment at all they just twist it around to fit their agenda MSDNC is not a news source anymore it's a propaganda outlet nothing more!

  7. The Media has no obligation to be honest with the public – it’s propaganda which can now be used against the public… thanks Obama

  8. To the extent that this attitude of not being beholden to the truth unless compelled otherwise permeates the White House (it probably does), this encapsulates why President Trump and his administration are a danger to our democracy.

  9. Lewandowski is a shining example of what Republicans have been doing for years – lying, Trump lying all the time is nothing new. Republicans on the committee behaved like punks. They are done with just lying – they now are lying and bullying

  10. Not answering questions truthfully which is contempt !! Making like he doesn't have to answer questions then gets belligerent to the council. This guy needs to be held in contempt !!! If this were real court then they would take him to jail. Ask anyone who has been belligerent to a judge. But of course this is not a real court and nothing will be done.

  11. So this dude is running for Senate??… And he lies to the media who is in part the public…. So why will he tell the truth to the public when he is not under oath since that's the only time he will tell the truth…. Yeah…elect this guy…

  12. Considering the media are serial liars and a propaganda arm for Democrats I agree. Just look what you sleazeballs did with Kavanaugh over the weekend.

  13. The problem with the news media is they think they have some kind of legal authority and they don't. Smart people can tell when they are being manipulated by these partisan hacks.

  14. This morsel of truth spewing from lewandowski is the key to how this regime operates.
    It is pure gaslighting operandi that nazis and Putin’s regime love.
    Media, stop putting any of this regime on air or interviews. They will lie to sow confusion and admit they won’t be truthful unless under oath, unless they’re a coward like the TRUMPS.
    They are anarchist, nazi Cowards who deserve a boot in the mouth.

  15. Like most who have been on the Trump team and many who are still employed, honesty is not the policy. Lying to the media is lying to the public. Credibility is not a important characteristic on the Trump team as so many of Trump's "best people" have demonstrated time after time.

  16. Talk about hypocrisy! WaPo has no concern for telling the truth every day of the week 365 days a year. They lied all day EVERY DAY for 2.5 years regarding Russian collusion.

  17. To be honest if he says he doesn’t have to be honest to the media or the people then what’s the point of swearing a oath

  18. DEMS ARE GOING DOWN, DOWN, DOWN… THEY LIE LIKE A RUG… WHICH IS 24/7 … LIKE THE MSM… OWNED BY 6 CORPORATIONS… THEY ARE TOLD WHAT TO SAY AND SUPPORT !!!

  19. Lewandoski made these liberal POS look like the evil dumb scums they are and screw all you brainwashed liberals still believing the Democrat and media lies.

  20. Drain the world of the lying social Demoncrats! The same people who had slaves, fought against freedom and civil rights and started the KKK. Stand for individual rights and responsibilities the foundation of America and personal freedom.

  21. In the whole 5 hour jury. The house went complete panic mode and Nadler doesn't want anybody to finish their statement if he disagrees.

  22. Deceitful Liars = Power-hungry Democrats. Burn and lose. Karma must be in operation; there's no way these Democrat "manipulators-for-power are going to get results from this charade of devious behavior.

  23. Corey Lewandowski is the man! I can watch them run circles around these idiots and knuckle draggers all day long. Sheila Jackson looks like a fat hippopotamus that should be wallering in the mud

  24. Why would one be soo obligated to be compassionate towards someone who maliciously lies and tweaks things around about them, huh?

  25. Nor does the media have to be honest with we the people. I know most Americans are great people. All I hear now is everyone is a liar or racist or both. But to believe for even one blink of your eye that President Trump is a Russian agent, I dont believe that your liars or racists. Just plain stupid. Best quote ever. Stupid is as Stupid does. Yes this means you. Idiots

  26. If Corey "Low Life" Lewandowski LIED to the American People VIA Ari Melber, once? Then Lewandowski LIED to that FAUX NEWS Chattle a Hundred times over! Straight into Their witless Faces! Hence, They all spread that obvious LIE with delirious glee…. So He flat out LIED to All and everyone, and TRUMP DID Obstruct Justice, "once over again"!

  27. These hearings are just a fishing expedition for perjury traps so that mainstream media can spawn new narratives. The Trump administration is learning their tactics and are getting better at playing the game.

  28. F the media, NOBODY is required to be honest or dishonest with the media.
    The media stopped reporting news and became a mouthpiece for the liberals.
    I'd feel OBLIGATED to lie to the media ANYTIME they asked me ANYTHING!
    F THE MEDIA!

  29. Look at all the sanctimonious people being “offended” by inaccurate statements… which they readily overlook from their political friends. Hypocrites is the word. That those who never told a lie stand up, be recognized, and start throwing stones.

  30. I am sorry, but I just do not understand the argument of my fellow citizens here concerning fake news. If I ask you what 2+2 is and you say "four" and I am a poor or liberal or WAPO or whatever you want to call me reporter and I say you said "five," then O.K. I am fake news and you can damn me to hell, I guess. But if I ask you what 2+2 is and you say "five" because you don't like me? Or think I am a scumbag or whatever? How does that A) make me fake and B) not make you responsible for what you said? Are there self-serving and twisted and corrupt folk among the media and the Dems and the left. As a lefty, I say there sure are. But to say that because we are sucky you get to say anything at all or are not responsible for how you answer questions is a little much. You took a cookie you were not supposed to because your brother did the same. O.K. Not admirable but I get it. You took a cookie because you think your brother was thinking about cookies? Huh? Whatever you righties think of us, standing behind this and also talking about personal responsibility or honesty or just decency is tough. That said, have a fine day.

  32. The media has become TOTALLY dishonest and anyone who is honest with themselves knows it. NOBODY I know believes the media at all anymore and thats what you get when you begin telling falsehoods over and over again. People lose trust in what you say and print. Not hard to figure this one out! You go COREY!
