Why did Trump reply honestly to the reporter's question

about whether he told Putin to back off meddling with US elections?

He said that the subject didn't come up. He could have lied....lying is second nature to him, like breathing. He told the truth and all the flags went down on the field for me.

Does anybody have any ideas as to why he did that?

1. I believe calls like that are recorded for historical purposes, so, he probably knew he'd be caught

lying... not that it's stopped him before.

2. My fear is Putin told him he was on his own and Drumpf lied.

Putin wants chaos, so why not back the Democrat this cycle? Perhaps they will flip some votes in a way that will stick out enough so they will be discovered. Meddling in Drumpf's favor has a low probability of succeeding, so why not put a pall over the next administration? Please tell me I am wrong.

10. He doesn't care in the manner we care. He cares for his political life, we care for our democracy.

4. He didn't lie because he feels emboldened and untouchable now

Why keep up the pretense of lying when, in his mind, there are now really no consequences.

5. He knows Putin will leak whatever and whenever he wants.

Nah, I don't believe that 'rump has that much mental ability.

Perhaps Putin completely controlled the agenda and then warned him that he'd better not piss him off. Got to please his boss.

16. Because he does not dare to think about telling Putin off

That's a lie too far because Putin might not approve.
