Maggie Haberman to Trump: No, My Report About Whitaker Is Not Fake

The New York Times's Maggie Haberman is standing by her new report that President Trump asked Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker to see if his ally Geoffrey S. Berman, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, could be put in charge of the investigation into his former lawyer Michael Cohen. That request supposedly came after Berman had already recused himself from the probe.

Trump denied the report, both at the White House and on Twitter.

Haberman counter punched in an interview Wednesday morning calling the president a liar.

Haberman said she and her team sent "several emails" to the White House during their reporting that went "unanswered." 

“They chose not to engage,” she said. “Then afterwards the president acts surprised. Now whether his aides are not telling him what we are looking at or whether this is a game and he knows what it is or doesn’t, I can’t read his mind. But, we certainly follow normal reporting practices and went over it at length with both the White House and the Department of Justice. So, if this was news to them, it would be surprising.”

Again, as for Trump's claim the reporters over at the New York Times don't verify their reports, she said "that's a lie."
