Tom Cotton: ‘I Didn’t Hear’ Trump Utter the Word Either and Durbin Has a History of Misrepresenting W.H. Meetings
DICKERSON: "Senator, your view on this that he said this word?"
COTTON: "Yes, John, I didn`t hear that word either. I certainly didn`t hear what Senator Durbin has said repeatedly. Senator Durbin has a history of misrepresenting what happens in White House meetings, though, so perhaps we shouldn`t be surprised by that. Here is what did I hear. And here is the point."
DICKERSON: "Just — sorry to interrupt. You didn`t hear the word or it was not said? Because Senator Graham also told Senator Scott, your Republican colleague, that this is what happened. Senator Flake was in a subsequent meeting right afterwards, where he was told by people in the meeting this happened. So, just to button that up, you`re saying it did not happen, or you haven`t — or you just don`t recall?"
COTTON: "I didn`t hear it. And I was sitting no further away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was."
