Has he been caught red-handed yet? We have many newspaper stories with no official confirmation, and loads of arm-chair speculation. I think we need a few more details to come out.
To a non crazy person, his excuse sounds like the ramblings of a child who has done something naughty and is trying to get out of it despite being caught red handed.
Why would he need this ridiculous convoluted excuse if he hadn’t been caught? Take a breath, tell that hamster running in that wheel in your head to settle down for a second and think about it.
