Neera Tanden, the president of the Center for American Progress, said that former FBI Director James Comey’s leaks are “whistleblowing” on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.
“I look at what Director Comey did in this situation as whistleblowing,” Tanden said, as other panelists laughed.
“[President Trump] said there were tapes of the conversation, or there may be tapes of the conversation, and that is when Director Comey decided to say, ‘OK, I need to get an alternative set of reality here,’ which are the actual facts,” Tanden said.
“It’s whistleblowing to me,” she concluded.
Tanden’s “alternative set of reality” is reminiscent of Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway’s “alternative facts” comment, which Tanden has repeatedly mocked on Twitter:
this is an alternative fact.
