"At a White House event yesterday on school prayer, of all things, Donald Trump said in reference to the Ukraine scandal, “You had a fake whistleblower that wrote a report that bore no relationship to what was said. Everything was false.” That wasn’t true, and the whistleblower report has held up quite nicely.
The president added that he released a call summary of his July phone meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky after Democrats “had done these fraudulent acts.” That was wrong, too.
But at the same event, the Republican took some time to comment on his knowledge of Lev Parnas, a Rudy Giuliani associate involved with executing the Ukraine scheme.
“Well, I don’t know him. I don’t know Parnas, other than I guess I had pictures taken, which I do with thousands of people, including people today that I didn’t meet. But – just met them. I don’t know him at all. Don’t know what he’s about. Don’t know where he comes from. Know nothing about him. […]
“It doesn’t matter what he says. He’s trying to probably make a deal for himself. I don’t even know who this man is, other than I guess he attended fundraisers, so I take a picture with him…. No, I don’t know him. Perhaps he’s a fine man; perhaps he’s not. I know nothing about him…. I don’t know him. I don’t believe I’ve ever spoken with him. I don’t believe I’ve ever spoken to him…. But I don’t know him. I had never had a conversation that I remember with him.”
The phrase “doth protest too much” kept coming to mind."
