Glenn Haab, the father of Colton Haab, admitted on Tuesday that he doctored emails between his son and CNN in an effort to convince people the network told the Marjory Stoneman High School junior what to say during a live town hall last week.

As the Associated Press reports, Glenn Haab ”acknowledges omitting some words from the email but says he didn’t do it on purpose.”

CNN last week denied claims by Haab that the network tried to feed him lines during a town hall on gun violence. The company later released email exchanges after doctored emails appeared to support Haab’s claim.
