NBC News Reporter Caught Lying about Michael Cohen Testimony on Trump and WikiLeaks

The testimony Wednesday by former Trump attorney and convicted perjurer Michael Cohen before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform did not produce the smoking guns that Democrats were hoping for, but it did produce a prodigious amount of fake news.

Several members of the committee noted beforehand and during the hearing the oddity of Cohen testifying before a congressional committee as he's headed to prison for lying to Congress:

But it seems that Cohen wasn't the only liar.

NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt was at the hearing and reported on-air about the proceedings. After Cohen's testimony, she made a flatly false assertion about a phone conversation between Trump confidant Roger Stone and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in response to a WikiLeaks tweet about Cohen's claims that Trump had foreknowledge of Wikileaks' DNC email drop.

She didn't get the 'no more lying' memo.

Kasie Hunt began her rise to newsperson status by being a thoughtful, sometimes nervous, straight-on news reporter while working alongside John Kerry.
Along the line she discovered the hairdresser, makeup, and (most importantly) the money to be a shill for liberal policies.
She obviously has chosen the money over being a common-sense, honest reporter.
Too bad. I really liked her. She coulda been great.

I guess she really, really, really, paid attention. NOT.
