Fox News anchor Bret Baier on Friday said that President Donald Trump had not been truthful during an interview with his network.
The chief political anchor was reporting on news that the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization had been granted immunity by federal prosecutors
“You wonder if he may have known when he was sitting with [Fox & Friends host] Ainsley Earhardt about this or the possibility of this when he was talking about that flipping sentence,” Baier said.
During Earhardt’s interview, Trump said that flipping “almost ought to be illegal.” The president also denied that he knew about payments that his longtime attorney, Michael Cohen, had made to his alleged mistresses.
It is unclear whether Weisselberg told prosecutors that Trump had knowledge of those payments. But in making his guilty plea, Cohen said that the payments were made with Trump’s knowledge. Trump was also caught on tape discussing with Cohen how to pay off a Playboy model’s story about an alleged affair.
“I mean, the president’s rollout of explaining this has not been clear,” Baier said. “The Washington Post says it’s a flat out lie in their fact-checking. I think you could look back at the statements and clearly he was not 100 percent truthful as he laid that out. You’ve got his answer to Ainsley Earhardt, saying he knew later on.”
