Trump Accuses Senator Of Lying About Gorsuch

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Thursday contradicted a spokesman for his Supreme Court nominee in a tweet blasting Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), who told reporters that Judge Neil Gorsuch called Trump’s tweets attacking federal judges “demoralizing.”

Blumenthal said Wednesday that Gorsuch called Trump’s tweets attacking federal judges “disheartening” and “demoralizing.” In a later statement, Blumenthal urged Gorsuch to make his concerns public. A spokesman for Gorsuch later confirmed to CNN that the judge used the terms “disheartening” and “demoralizing” to describe Trump’s tweets during his meeting with the Blumenthal.
