6. It's a classic gaslighting ploy

He was the President (much as it galls me to say it) and he was/is from their party. They didn't want the black eye of calling him out as an incompetent and a liar -- they had allowed him to be their candidate and voted for him, after all -- and so when he lied, they had to support the lie or maybe face each and every questionable thing they'd done to support him. With every lie he told, they had to support him in it or face their own accumulated malfeasance, thus adding even more to their own tally and becoming ever more chained to him.
