<p>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&rsquo;s Wolf Blitzer Friday afternoon as he minced no words in calling out Psaki and her predecessors for lying about the Iran nuclear agreement.&nbsp;</p>

<p><strong>&ldquo;As you know, it&#39;s one thing to be discreet and not release all the information to the public for sensitive reasons, whether it&#39;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,&rdquo; </strong>Blitzer told Psaki about halfway through their six-minute-plus interview.</p>
