Robert Reich: ‘This is the most lying administration in memory’

From USA Today
:“Attorney General Jeff Sessions is not the only member of President Trump’s campaign who spoke to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak at a diplomacy conference connected to the Republican National Convention in July. At least two more members of the Trump campaign’s national security officials also spoke with Kislyak at the event, and several more Trump national security advisers were in attendance.

It's unknown what the Trump campaign officials who spoke with the ambassador – J.D. Gordon and Carter Page – discussed with him. Those who took part in the events in Cleveland said it is not unusual for presidential campaign teams to interact with diplomats.

Robert Reich:
This is the most lying administration in memory. From Trump on down through Jeff Sessions and his cabinet appointments, blatant lying is now the norm. Politicians used to spin the truth -- embellishing it, and putting it in the best possible light. But the Trumpians shamelessly disregard the truth altogether. When they're caught in a lie, they pretend they never lied to begin with.
