Which is it?
What’s just as damning is that Trump keeps changing his story. First he claimed he was never briefed. Then he claimed that in the briefing (which he says he never had) there was no consensus as to the validity of the report. Now he’s claiming the report is a hoax and fake news, to make Republicans look bad. Never mind that these are all self-contradictory.
And right now, nobody needs to make things up to make Republicans look bad.
