Pence would take lie detector test over anonymous op-ed 'in a heartbeat' as he plays up national security risk

Pence would take lie detector test over anonymous op-ed 'in a heartbeat' as he plays up national security riskMike Pence has said that he would submit to a lie detector test “in a heartbeat” to prove he was not the author of an anonymous op-ed describing an apparent “resistance” movement within the administration of Donald Trump looking to work against the president. Calling the article an “assault on our democracy,” the vice president dismissed a theory that he was the potential author of the piece because it uses the word “lodestar” – a word Mr Pence has repeatedly used in speeches – as a mere effort to “distract attention” from the Trump’s administration’s achievements. With the president clearly irked by The New York Times op-ed, Mr Pence made clear that he would do whatever Mr Trump needed to prove his own innocence that he was not the “senior administration official” said to be behind the piece.
