In response to CNN's story about the White House asking the FBI to deny the Trump/Russia stories, Press Secretary Sean Spicer is digging deeper. Spicer told CNN: "We didn't try to knock the story down. We asked them to tell the truth."
There are a number of ways to interpret this statement. But the most logical one is that what the FBI actually has been saying is not the truth. Another is that the truth is the opposite of what the FBI appears to have found ... so far.
