But in past deleted videos, saved by CNN from Greene’s time as a political activist, she spoke extensively about her ties to Aguero, repeatedly boasting he was a “dear, dear,” “great, great,” and “best” friend. Greene spoke about the considerable work the pair had done together, saying the two had “gone to a lot of different events together and do a lot of work together.”
Greene and Aguero did not return CNN’s requests for comment on their ties.
In one instance in 2019, Greene was banned from posting on her Facebook page, and Aguero let Greene broadcast on his page.
“Anthony is my great, great friend,” Greene said in that video. “He’s one of my best friends…Anthony is my dear, dear friend. I love him so much. He’s one of the greatest guys.”
Describing their relationship, Greene said in one interview from 2019 they worked very closely together.
“Anthony and I are very good friends, we’ve gone to a lot of different events together and do a lot of work together. ”
“I don’t recall,” Greene said. When asked if they had spent a lot of time together, Greene said, “Not much time, no.”
Greene acknowledged on Friday that Aguero was “someone that I do know” when asked if he was a friend but said he was “someone I hardly ever talk to. But someone I have known for a few years.”
Greene called Aguero “a distant friend, someone I know.”
When asked if she knew that Aguero said Greene was one his closest friends, Greene said she wasn’t aware. “I have not,” Greene said.
