Video: Tom Coburn kinda sorta calls Ted Cruz a liar   February 23, 2016

This is retired Republican Senator Tom Coburn…

Earlier this month, Team Trump circulated a quote from Tom Coburn, calling Cruz “dishonest”.

Coburn angrily denied it:

It’s an absolute fabrication. I’ve never said that, period,” Coburn told the Examiner. “It’s unfortunate he would use my name to say something dishonest. It’s a total fabrication.

Cruz demanded an apology:

The Trump campaign tweeted out a made-up quote from Senator Coburn impugning my integity..

To paraphrase the media reax:

See, see! Trump lied again! But voters just won’t listen to our unbiased fact-checking!!!!

But, in point of fact, Coburn has repeatedly impugned Cruz’s integrity.

In the following clip from 2013, Coburn:

(1) Does not deny that he accused Cruz of “misleading” voters, and

(2) Accuses Cruz of being “not intellectually honest”, and lacking integrity…

A charge Coburn has repeated on numerous occasions since.
