Hey, Mike, we know you didn't do this, but we're up against some pretty bad hombres. We need you to bow out. You'll always have my ear, and you and yours will be taken care of.
My understanding is that neither of the FBI agents interviewing him had the impression that he was lying intentionally.
Were you an officer? In any case, history belies your experience. Officers lie. So do presidents.
I don't know what your background is, but my experience has been that officers know they can't get away with lying.
Dishonesty in the name of the greater good was a frequent theme of the report, offered by many officers as an explanation for their actions. Others cited the seemingly unimportant nature of the requirements being fudged, the need to keep up with other officers or units that may have inflated their performance or readiness rates, or a belief that senior leaders were aware the information being submitted was inaccurate.
This map helps explain why Trump was able to win, despite winning over 2.2. million fewer votes (at the time of writing) than Clinton. Her votes were very concentrated in only a few states whereas Trump’s votes came from a wide enough geographic area to capture the Electoral College.
Overall Trump won approximately 2,600 counties to Clinton’s 500, or about 84% of the geographic United States. However, Clinton won 88 of of the 100 largest counties (including Washington D.C.). Without these 100 largest counties she would have lost by 11.5 million votes.
