McCrummen: So, but you were interested in doing this job? Can you talk about that a little bit?Phillips: Yeah, it was going to be with the Daily Caller, but it ended up falling through, so I wasn’t able to do it. ‘Cause my fiance was relocating to New York, so I was looking for a job to go with him and it didn’t work out so I ended up staying, doing what I was doing.McCrummen: And what was your interest in working for the Daily Caller?Phillips: Umm, I just — I like their stories and I thought that I would be good at doing research and stuff like that. ‘Cause just based on my background in the mortgage business, like that’s pretty much all I do all day is research things.[…]McCrummen: And so who was the person that you interviewed with?Phillips: It was a lady named Kathy.McCrummen: What was her last name?Phillips: Johnson.McCrummen: Kathy Johnson. And where was it?Phillips: In the New York area.McCrummen: Uh huh.Phillips: But I don’t know, like, why we are going into all this. I haven’t even agreed to go through with the story yet, so.McCrummen: Well since you contacted us, you reached out to us, you know, we went ahead and did some background information, background checking — you know what I mean — on some of the things you had told Beth about your story. And so this came up and so I just wanted to understand what that’s about and why you’d want to work for the Daily Caller. And I also, frankly, want to know who you might be working for now.[…]Phillips [after receiving more questions about her background]: I don’t really want to get into any more details about my life because, I mean, it’s, like, obvious that you’re, like, not believing me so I don’t really see the point of even continuing the meeting, you know. So I should probably just, like, cancel the whole thing, so.McCrummen: Okay, well if there’s anything you want to say for the record — like I said, we’re planning to write a story.
Anytime you see a story about me or my campaign saying "sources said," DO NOT believe it. There are no sources, they are just made up lies!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2016
