White House Edited Transcript Related to Iran Lies

(Before It's News)

The White House edited an official transcript related to whether anyone in the administration had lied about the Iran deal, suggesting a systemic effort to cover up admissions by administration spokesmen that lies were told.

From ABC News:

The question from Fox News reporter Kevin Corke went like this, according to ABC News’ own recording of the briefing:

Corke: Can you state categorically that no senior official in this administration has ever lied publicly about any aspect of the Iran nuclear deal?”

Earnest: No, Kevin.

However, the words “No, Kevin” never made it into the official White House transcript. Instead it picked up with the rest of Earnest’s response, comments about how the White House believes the deal has made America safer.

The White House claims the answer was left out because it was inaudible, but that is untrue.

Earnest’s full answer can be heard in the White House’s own video, posted on its YouTube page, although it is not included in the on-screen captioning. The exchange occurs exactly one hour into the briefing.

Here is the White House video. The question is posed by Corke at almost exactly the one hour mark. Although it’s said quietly, you can hear Earnest say, “No Kevin.”

But here is a screen shot of the White House transcript:

An audio recording of the briefing is made each day by a White House official who sits right below Earnest. It is very hard to imagine that the official did not pick up Earnest’s answer very clearly. The audiotape should be released. But of course, that can be doctored too.

The revelation comes following a State Department admission that a whole section of a video had been removed within which then-State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki indicated that the administration lied about talks with Iran.

And so now we have not a rogue video editor at State, but a full-fledged conspiracy extending into both the White House and the State Department and an attempt to cover it up.
