In her first TV interview since the State Department admitted to having intentionally deleted portions of a State Department press briefing, former State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki met the wrath of CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Friday afternoon as he minced no words in calling out Psaki and her predecessors for lying about the Iran nuclear agreement. 

“As you know, it's one thing to be discreet and not release all the information to the public for sensitive reasons, whether it's classified or diplomacy or whatever but another thing to flat out lie to the news media and to the American public which is what your predecessor Victoria Nuland did,” Blitzer told Psaki about halfway through their six-minute-plus interview.
