The Hill reports:
Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum (Pa.) said Wednesday that President Trump’s claims about the Russia investigation shouldn’t be alarming because the president “doesn’t tell the truth about a lot of things fairly consistently.”
“The president doesn’t tell the truth about a lot of things fairly consistently,” Santorum, a CNN commentator, said during a panel discussion on”Anderson Cooper 360.”
“And so the fact that he’s not telling the truth about Russia fairly consistently, at least in the eyes of the people around here, why is that any different? It’s not like he’s doing something out of character with the Russia investigation, that he’s not doing in other areas,” he continued.
“Is that really the best defense you can come up with?” @JeffreyToobin asks @RickSantorum, who argued that President Trump is seen to lie so consistently “it’s not like he’s doing something out of character with the Russia investigation.” https://t.co/zq0dlq8S0F pic.twitter.com/l84z0PpVNV
