Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski suggested Tuesday that he was under no obligation to be truthful to members of the news media after House Democrats pressed him on his past remarks on national television.
The committee counsel asking Lewandowski questions catches him in lies regarding public statements he made about his role in the Mueller investigation. Lewandowski replies by saying, sarcastically, "No one in Congress has ever lied to the public." pic.twitter.com/Vzp0Euz1Si

Barry Berke is showing inadvertently making clear how ineffective Congress is at questioning witnesses.
Even in his first 5 minutes, the amount of time lawmakers get, he got more out of Lewandowski than most committee members.

Wow. House counsel Barry Berke just busted @CLewandowski_ telling a major lie on national television — Lewandowski claimed no memory of any interaction with Sessions as outlined in the Mueller report.
Lewandowski stammers something about his memory failing him.
