It's called "The Non-Denial Denial"

CNN has the scoop on Sandy Bergler’s friends rushing to his defense.

Colleagues defend Berger in documents probe

…That allegation drew sharp responses from two of Berger’s associates. President Clinton’s former spokesman, Joe Lockhart, said Berger “categorically denies that he ever took documents and stuffed them in his socks.

“That is absurd,” said Lockhart, who is now advising Berger. “And anyone who says that is interested in something other than the truth.”

Former Clinton aide Lanny Davis challenged any unnamed official who accuses Berger of stuffing documents into his socks to come forward and level that charge publicly.

“I suggest that person is lying,” he said. “And if that person has the guts, let’s see who it is who made the comment that Sandy Berger stuffed something into his socks.”

So as Justin Wilson would say, “The Democrats are denying the allegations and they’re denying the alligator!”

He might have taken some of the most sensitive security documents the country has and now claims he “lost them” but Dammit! they WERE NOT in his sock!
