(CNSNews.com) - The White House on Thursday refused to comment on former FBI Director James Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, but did defend the president, saying President Donald Trump is not a liar despite Comey's testimony to the contrary.

As CNSNews.com reported, Comey testified that the administration's attempt to defame him and the FBI "by saying that the organization was in disarray, that it was poorly led, that the work for had lost confidence in its leader, those were lies, plain and simple."


White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked if the president is a liar like Comey said and whether Comey's testimony was truthful.

"I'll answer the first one. No, I can definitively say the president's not a liar. I think it's frankly insulting that that question would be asked, and second, anything specific to the hearing again as I said in my opening, I would refer you to the comments that Mark Kasowitz will make following the conclusion of the hearing," she said.
