    about his salary.

    They merely issued a statement saying that the "base" wage for his position in the company was $122,000 per year.

    That is a very ambiguous statement... A "base" wage is a starting point. It doesn't include any overtime, incentive pay, bonuses, or raises.

    So it is entirely possible that he wasn't lying about his "around $200,000 a year" statement, and his former employer's press release didn't argue the point...

    They never said "He did not make around $200,000 a year."

    They said "The base wage for that position is $122,000 per year."

    And they never said he was making the base... My guess is if he WERE making the base wage, they'd of stated so unambiguously, because it would absolutely paint him as a verifiable liar, but my guess is since they didn't do so, it likely means they COULDN'T do so.
