These are the two words Trump always uses when he's about to drop a big lie: CNN legal analyst

On Thursday, legal analyst Jeffery Toobin ripped President Donald Trump for lying about his relationship with Julian Assange.


Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks was arrested this morning at Ecuador’s embassy in London after they withdrew his asylum after nearly seven years.

In response to Assange's arrest, Trump falsely said that he knew nothing about Wikileaks.

“I know nothing about Wikileaks. It’s not my thing,” Trump told reports.

"Does it hurt his Justice Department's ability to push forward on prosecuting Assange when the Commander in Chief is so complimentary to Assange?" CNN host Brianna Keilar asked.

"I think the president knows his supporters will let him get away with talking out of both sides," Washington Post reporter David Swerdlick said. "He does it all the time. Mexico will pay for the wall. I never said Mexico would pay for the wall. I was for Iraq before I was against Iraq."

"There are tells with Trump. Sometimes the more emphatic he is the more he is lying," Toobin said. "Like the idea that 'it's not my deal', I mean, could it have been more his deal? Also when he says 'believe me,' which he says often, is often followed with a lie."
