Don Lemon, CNN host and paragon of constantly stating the opposite of what is true, has falsely claimed that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch recused herself from the federal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. This is actually fake news as what Lemon said is indeed 100% untrue.
“Loretta Lynch recused herself from any decision regarding Hillary Clinton because of that meeting of Hillary Clinton and Loretta Lynch, who was attorney general at the time, on the tarmac,” Lemon said during a panel discussion
However Dana Bash interjected to correct Lemon.
The Washington Examiner noted:
His remarks came in reference to recent calls for AG Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from an investigation into Russia’s alleged involvement in the 2016 election. The calls come on the heels of reports claiming the former senator failed to acknowledge during his confirmation that he reportedly spoke twice last year with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
Lemon clarified that he misspoke and was referencing Bill Clinton’s private meeting with Lynch on a plane last summer.
“Yeah, I may have misspoken. I meant Bill Clinton on the tarmac,” Lemon said, ignoring his comment on Lynch’s recusal.
@mschlapp Nice Deflection!

Interesting Dana Bash eventually corrected Lemon. Doubt that would have happened had @POTUS not accused CNN of showing #faknews

Apparently too many people don't know individual channels (CNN) can be blocked on their tv. No effect on others
