Vice President Mike Pence said he’d take a lie-detector test to prove he didn’t write a bombshell anonymous anti-Trump op-ed in the New York Times.
In an interview with “Fox News Sunday,” the vice president was asked if all top officials should submit to a polygraph test on the matter.
“I would agree to take it in a heartbeat and would submit to any review the administration wanted to do,” he said.
The honorable thing to do here is for this individual to recognize that they are literally violating an oath,” he added. “If they are that senior administration official, they are violating an oath not to the president, but to the Constitution. It’s un-American.”
“To have someone who literally celebrates coming in every day to frustrate the agenda that the president and I were elected to advance, it really is an assault on our democracy and it should be universally condemned,” he said.
He also disputed Bob Woodward’s claim in new book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” that former White House economic adviser Gary Cohn removed a document from Trump’s desk that would have withdrawn U.S. from the South Korea Free Trade Agreement.
“I have every doubt that happened. I really do. … The President renegotiated the South Korean free trade agreement in a way that put American jobs and American workers first.”
