UK PM Johnson denies lying to the Queen

(REPORTER OFF-CAMERA: "Did you lie to the Queen when you advised her to prorogue, to suspend, Parliament?" (SOUNDBITE) (English) BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, BORIS JOHNSON, SAYING: "Absolutely not.'' That was British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday (September 11) pushing back against allegations that he may have deceived Queen Elizabeth.

The latest wrinkle in the prime minister's controversial move to suspend parliament for five weeks.

Scotland's highest court of appeal ruled on Wednesday that the move was unlawful and was intended to stymie lawmakers, prompting opponents to question whether Johnson had misled the Queen, who must formally order the prorogation.

Opposition lawmakers claim it's an attempt to thwart their attempts to scrutinize his Brexit plans and to allow him to push through a no-deal Brexit on Oct.

31.

Johnson maintains that the speech timing has nothing to do with Brexit.

The government will appeal the verdict at the Supreme Court, the United Kingdom's highest judicial body, next week.
