Gingrich: Romney “Said Things That Weren’t True” During Campaign
But Newt Gingrich wouldn’t call Mitt Romney a liar again.
“I still believe that the Romney campaign said things that weren’t true,” said Gingrich on CNN’s “Situation Room.”
“Forget about the Mitt Romney campaign. Is Mitt Romney a liar?” pressed host Wolf Blitzer.
“The governor said things at times that weren’t true,” Gingrich elaborated.
Despite being pushed on the question by Blitzer, Gingrich just shrugged and declined to say the word “liar.”
Back in January, Gingrich had no qualms about making the accusation. “You’re calling Mitt Romney a liar?” asked correspondent Norah O’Donnell then.
“Well, you seemed shocked by it. Yes,” Gingrich responded.
