Clinton Said She Never Lied And Always Told The Truth

In a interview with CBS News correspondent Scott Pelley, Democratic party presidential Hillary Clinton said she never lied to the American people.  Clinton is attempting to cast herself as an honest politician.

The interviewed played out as follows:

Pelley:You know, in ’76, Jimmy Carter famously said I will not lie to you.”

Clinton:Well, I have to tell you I have tried in every way I know how literally from my years as a young lawyer all the way through my time as secretary of state to level with the American people.”

Pelley:You talk about leveling with the American people. Have you always told the truth?”

Clinton:I’ve always tried to. Always. Always.”

Pelley:Some people are gonna call that wiggle room that you just gave yourself.”

Clinton:Well, no, I’ve always tried”

Pelley:I mean, Jimmy Carter said, “‘I will never lie to you.'”

Clinton:Well, but, you know, you’re asking me to say, “Have I ever?” I don’t believe I ever have. I don’t believe I ever have. I don’t believe I ever will. I’m gonna do the best I can to level with the American people.”
