The liar’s punishment is, not in the least that he is not believed, but that he cannot believe anyone else.

All should appreciate the FBI speaking up.  I wish more of our leaders would.  But take heart: American history shows that, in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field, so long as good people stand up.  Not a lot of schools or streets named for Joe McCarthy.

During the campaign it was widely reported that then candidate Trump was the most dishonest candidate running for President.  (That’s Politically Correct “speak” for Trump was the biggest liar.)   Trump’s honesty rating (according to Politifact.com) was 15% – “true” (4%) or “mostly true” (11%) – and 85% dishonest – “half true” (15%), “mostly false” (19%), “false” (34%), and “pants on fire” (17%).
Trump is now on his Twitter account denying the recent reports (by various media) of “disarray” on his transition team.  Trump reports everything is going “smoothly”.
To quote Groucho Marx: “Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes.
To quote Abraham Lincoln: “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.
