  • CIA Dir Pompeo calls out @NYTimes for publishing name of an UNDERCOVER CIA agent.Just as disgraceful?@BretStephensNYT REPEATS name 2x’s!
  • If Scavino had never heard of Agee, didn’t know the name of the C.I.A. officer whose name was published by The Times and didn’t bother to fact check before tweeting, he might have inferred from my reply that I had indeed done what he alleged.
  • This one bubbles over and erupts with them, like a fetid geyser at Yellowstone.Nor is it new that Scavino’s attack is also part of a broader White House effort to demonize The New York Times.
  • If Anthony Scaramucci is serious about cleaning house in his new shop, dismissing Scavino should be a priority.

For the Trump administration, no lie is too small to be weaponized.

  • But, at the same time, the president said other parts of Mr. Comey’s testimony confirmed what Mr. Trump had already said, such as that he wasn’t under criminal investigation.
  • Mr. Trump dodged multiple questions about whether there are tapes of his conversations with Comey.
