On Thursday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) whether he agreed with President Trump that lying for years about his military record damaged his credibility to call for extreme vetting of Neil Gorsuch.
On Wednesday, Sen. Blumenthal reported that President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch told him that he found Trump’s recent remarks about the judiciary “demoralizing” and “disheartening.”
President Trump responded by tweeting out, “Sen.Richard Blumenthal, who never fought in Vietnam when he said for years he had (major lie),now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him?”
In 2010, The New York Times reported that Blumenthal had been lying for years by claiming he had fought in the Vietnam War.
“There’s no question that Judge Gorsuch said to me that he found these attacks on the judiciary by the President to be disheartening and demoralizing,” Blumenthal told Cuomo, then proceeded to dodge answering the question.
