Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, better known as Diamond and Silk, appeared to lie under oath while testifying Thursday before the House Judiciary Committee.
The perceived perjury occurred during an exchange with Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
The Texas Democrat repeatedly asked the popular pro-Trump social media personalities if they had ever been paid by the Trump campaign, to which each time they replied with some variation of “never.”
Jackson Lee asked again if the figure, “$1,274.94,” meant anything, to which the ladies again responded they had never been paid by the Trump campaign.
The Trump campaign’s official FEC filing shows that they did in fact pay the women for “Field Consulting” in November 2016.
Congressman Hakeem Jeffries entered the filing into record later in the hearing, yet the ladies simply called the filing “fake news.”
