Seems, when speaking to a training session of Jewish Democrats, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) stated that:
“We know, and I’ve heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this, that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel.”
The Washington Examiner reported the remarks. Ambassador Michael Oren, for his part, vehemently denied the comment.
“I categorically deny that I ever characterized Republican policies as harmful to Israel. Bipartisan support is a paramount national interest for Israel, and we have great friends on both sides of the aisle.”
At which point Ms. Wasserman Schultz denies having made the remark, and blames the “conservative newspaper” which, of course, misquoted and misrepresented. Until audio of Ms. Wasserman Schultz turned up in which it is proven that the Examiner quote is entirely accurate:
Who are you going to believe, Debbie Wasserman Schultz or your lying ears? Ask yourself what the effect would be if RNC Chairmen Preibus or Blackwell had done such a thing.
