Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says he was instructed by the Obama White House to say things he didn’t believe on the Sunday morning news shows.

“I remember during one Roosevelt Room prep session before I appeared on the Sunday shows, I objected when Dan Pfeiffer wanted me to say Social Security didn’t contribute to the deficit. It wasn’t a main driver of our future deficits, but it did contribute. Pfeiffer said the line was a ‘dog whistle’ to the left, a phrase I had never heard before,” Geithner reveals in his forthcoming memoir, “Stress Test.”

“He had to explain that the phrase was code to the Democratic base, signaling that we intended to protect Social Security,” he added.

The former Treasury Secretary’s claim comes shortly after declassified White House emails revealed last month that the Obama administration coordinated with National Security Adviser Susan Rice after the 2012 assault on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, to portray the attacks as being “rooted in [an] Internet video” and not “a broader failure of policy.”

Fox & Friends just reported that Geithner says that parts of the book are wrong.

Now it seems like he doesn't ever believe his own book.

How far will these people go to lie????
