Treasurer defends Linda Reynolds following ‘lying cow’ comment
Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has defended parliamentary colleague Linda Reynolds after she reportedly slurred Brittany Higgins in front of staff.

“At all times, as Linda said to the parliament … she has believed that she’s been acting in the best interests of Brittany Higgins,” he told Ben Fordham.
“I’m not going to add to that speculation.”
