Stephanie Cutter: No regrets about accusing Romney of possibly committing a felony
Cutter looked back on her time on the campaign trail and news-making moments, such as when she said that Mitt Romney was either possibly guilty of a felony for misrepresenting his position at Bain Capital after 1999 to the SEC or guilty of misrepresenting his position to the American people. ”I don’t regret saying it. It’s the truth,” Cutter said.
“What I said was there were a series of documents that came out, that came to light in a news report that showed that Romney had signed SEC documents alleging that he was in charge of Bain Capital from 1999 to 2001, when he alleged he wasn’t in change of Bain Capital, and that he was off running the Olympics. But he was signing these documents as the chairman, president, CEO and sole owner of Bain Capital to the federal government. So only one of two things could be true… either he’s not telling the truth to the SEC or he’s not telling the truth to the American people. If he’s not telling the truth to the SEC, then that could be a felony. That’s exactly what I said.”
