I won’t summarize this article by Aaron Blake in the Washington Post, except to say that it is about the 2-page summary of Russian hacking, what the CIA said about it, what Kellyanne Conway said about it, what Donald Trump said about it. Interesting point: She wants to see a “house cleaning” at CNN because they reported on the existence of a memo that does in fact exist.

 

It is a case study in deflecting, obfuscating, lying.

 

This is  not the first time we have seen political figures lie. But the Trump team seems to have honed the practice to a fine art.

 

This is a twist on an old line, “How can you tell when the Trump spokespeople are lying?” Answer: “When their lips are moving.”
