    1. Tillman, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2004 by friendly fire

      Even though Fox News repeatedly repeated the Govt's claim that Tillman was killed fighting the Taliban.

      In interviews with The Washington Post, the Army Ranger's mother and father said they believe the military and the government created a heroic tale about how their son died to foster a patriotic response across the country.

      U.S. military spokesman Lt. Col. Matthew Beevers said Saturday that Tillman was killed Thursday night in a firefight at about 7 p.m. on a road near Sperah, about 25 miles southwest of a U.S. base at Khost.

      After coming under fire, Tillman’s patrol got out of their vehicles and gave chase, moving toward the spot of the ambush. Beevers said the fighting was “sustained” and lasted 15-20 minutes. Pat Tillman turned down a $3.6 million contract in 2002 to join the Army in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Beevers said Tillman was killed by enemy fire, but he had no information about what type of weapons were involved in the assault, or whether he died instantly.

      I could not find the 20 July 2019 exchange referenced here, but I did find the transcript from 16 July where Trump discussed the same matter with Fox News host Sean Hannity. This, if anything, establishes that these talking points were used with some frequency by President Trump throughout this period of time in mid-July of 2019. https://www.foxnews.com/transcript/trump-witch-hunt-drove-a-phony-wedge-between-us-russia
