On Monday the Wall Street Journal broke the news that recently acquired emails proved that the Obama administration LIED when they said that Jonathan Gruber had not played a major role in the crafting of Obamacare.
Upon hearing the news, Mark Halperin apologized to his Republican sources who told him at the time that the Obama team was lying about the depth of Gruber’s involvement… but Halperin chose to believe all the President’s men, instead of his sources.
“I owe my Republican sources an apology, because they kept telling me he was hugely involved and the White House played it down. They were right.”
On the heels of that admission, Joe Scarborough wondered then if that meant the White House had lied to everyone. Halperin refused to give a straight answer, instead saying that the White House had not been “forthcoming.” Scarborough then went around the table and asked Howard Dean (D-VT) and Harold Ford (D-TN) the same question, to which they gave the same reply as Halperin. Finally, Scarborough asked Mika Brzezinski, who reluctantly answered that she believed the Obama team had indeed LIED.
