“I think your premise to start this conversation, I’m not sure I agree with it. You say he made up everything and is lying about being robbed.

Kocsis added he “didn’t think” the coverage of Lochte was fair. However, a man claiming to be a “friend” of Lochte’s accused Kocsis of attempting to “spin” the narrative. (RELATED: Speedo Ends Ryan Lochte’s Endorsement Deal After Events In Rio)
