He Just Can't Stop Lying.

The latest. Donald Trump claims that America's Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, "called him to 'denounce the false and fictitious' report that Russia held compromising information about the president-elect."

The problem, for the Great Orange Bloat, is that Mr. Clapper says he didn't say that.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper merely said he had told Mr Trump that no judgment had yet been made on its reliability.

Mr Clapper rejected Mr Trump's claim that US intelligence leaked the report.

Mr Clapper's statement on the conversation came out on Wednesday evening and he has not yet commented on Mr Trump's version.

In his statement, the spymaster said he had "expressed profound dismay at the leaks that have been appearing in the press and we both agreed that they are extremely corrosive and damaging to our national security".

Director Clapper didn't "denounce" anything. Nor did he declare the dossier "false and fictitious." Maybe Trump senses he's in so deep that he has no choice but to keep lying, just making stuff up to feed his Gullibillies.

Listen to what Clapper really has to say:

"This was a multi-faceted campaign. The hacking was only one part of it, and so it entailed classical propaganda, disinformation, fake news."
