Tracking Trump's Dubious Denials

Written by  Donald Lambro

WASHINGTON - When the news broke this week that President Trump had passed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister at a White House meeting, administration officials said the story was “false.

It was another example of wrongdoing that Trump and his advisers dismiss as “fake news” invented by the major news media to bring down his presidency.
