How worried are you about the integrity of the information we’re being told?

SEN. MIKE LEE: Well, I’m worried.

And as a United States senator and as a voter and citizen, I have learned not to simply take the federal government’s word at face value.

I mean, look, we were lied to about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. We were lied to for a couple of decades about what was happening in Afghanistan. We have been lied to about a lot of things.

It’s not to say that the government is always lying or that the people who run it are inherently evil. It’s just that they’re human. And these things do happen.

And so that’s important to ask these questions, to make sure that we know the details.
