Pretty incredible when Dan Rather talks about someone's 'spigot of lies'
Former CBS anchor Dan Rather on Tuesday blasted the Trump administration’s integrity following former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s resignation.
“The White House has no credibility on this issue,” he wrote on his Facebook page. "Their spigot of lies – can we finally all agree to call them lies – long ago lost them any semblance of credibility.”
“We need an independent investigation,” Rather added. "Damn the lies, full throttle forward on the truth.
"[This] is real and it is serious. Deadly serious. We deserve answers and those who are complicit in this scandal need to feel the full force of justice.”
Flynn resigned late Monday amid scrutiny of his phone conversations with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December after reports that he had misled senior White House officials about discussing U.S. sanctions on Russia before Trump took office.
