On March 1, 60 Minutes aired a segment about illegally high levels of formaldehyde found in laminate flooring sourced from China and sold by Lumber Liquidators, a Virginia-based retailer of hardwood flooring. QVerity's behavioral analysis of correspondent Anderson Cooper's interview with Lumber Liquidators founder and chairman Tom Sullivan concluded that Sullivan was likely aware that his company was selling flooring that was non-compliant with these regulations, and that he appeared to be withholding information, the disclosure of which could result in serious negative consequences for himself and his company.
QVerity’s behavioral analysis of responses provided by Ms. Clinton during the press conference found that she exhibited a high level of deceptive behavior, leading us to conclude that she may have been withholding information that could compromise her story. It would therefore be unsurprising if as-yet undisclosed information surfaces in the future, with revelations that may heighten the seriousness of the matter.
