Recode has obtained a previously undisclosed email from former White House aide Alex Conant that outlines Trump’s history of lies about his financial and legal troubles.
In the email, Conant says he was given a summary of Trump’s financial disclosure form and told to read it.
“As a former employee, I know what Trump is telling you,” he wrote.
“There is no truth to it.”
He added that “he has a long history … of lying about his finances.”
Conant, who resigned from the White House last month, did not provide a copy of the email to Recode.
In a follow-up email to The Associated Press, Conan told the AP that he believes the email was a hoax.
“I have no idea if this was real, but I know this: Mr. Trump lies about a lot,” Conant wrote.
The email also comes as White House allies accuse the White Reporters Club of being the “most active right-wing media organization in the country.”
The club’s president, Mike Cernovich, wrote on Twitter that the email proves Trump lied to the public.
“President Trump lies more than anyone in modern times,” Cernich wrote.
Trump also denies any wrongdoing.
“The only thing I did in that situation was tell them that there was no problem,” Trump said in an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt on Sunday.
“They’re all liars.
They all lie, and they all made up things.”
Conan, who has been on the Trump administration since April, was an unpaid employee until last month.
He was told by the White Senate Office of Public Liaison that he was “not to be made available for the president’s daily briefing,” according to the email.
The White House has refused to comment on Conant’s claims.
