We Now Know What Donald Trump Meant When He Said Lester Holt Had 'Fudged' the Interview With Trump Last Year, and People Have Questions
President Donald Trump's attorney Jay Sekulow claimed, without evidence, that an interview Trump sat down for with NBC's Lester Holt, in which Trump said that one of his reasons for firing former FBI Director James Comey was the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, was doctored.
"You know that when there are interviews, there are edits and there is a longer transcript, and I will just tell you without disclosing any detail that when you review the entire transcript, it is very clear as to what happened," Sekulow said, stressing that a line later in the interview that was cut makes Trump's comments about "the Russia thing" look less damning (and considerably less like an admission of obstruction of justice).
People Can't Stop Sharing the Interview in Which Donald Trump Admitted He Fired Comey Because of Russia After Trump Accused Lester Holt of 'Fudging' It
During a routine morning Twitter tirade, President Donald Trump lashed out at news organizations he said were "unable to function" due to their "hatred and extreme bias of me."
The rant primarily targeted the organization he's long perceived to be his arch nemesis: CNN. However, he targeted NBC as well, accusing veteran reporter Lester Holt of "fudging" his tape on Russia.
