Since Donald Trump left office, several books have been written about his tenure. And while most rational people expected the former president to have been incompetent and corrupt, the picture that is being painted is even worse.
One might think it would be important to call Trump to testify in front of Congress. However, Jim Acosta does not think so. In fact, the CNN host says the former commander-in-chief’s constant lies would render the hearings useless.
Lofgren He said the host of CNN, “I do not think it is a new piece of information that the former president has a veracity problem. The Washington Post and other news institutions used to accumulate how many lies per day he told. So we have to weigh that as a factor of how valuable their testimony would be. “
Acosta Following, “In other words, it may lie so much that the testimony is useless. “
Florida Congressman finished, “Well, I think it’s a balancing factor, I’m sure he would litigate, and then we need to weigh how truthful his testimony would be given his record. “
