The situation is this "In an email, I wrote about the person due to his incorrect information, he wasted my time. for which he replied that his information was correct with some supporting reasons (which is actually not acceptable by me. because it is not true) and put the blame back on me." his reply is just to protection himself from the higher officials in the email cc. they are just going to take the decision or react based on the information in the email.
It is common character of most of the people. but some people they don't correct their mistakes at all. Always They will use this strategy and escape from their faults.
What is the proper phrase or word to be used while referring this type person or his actions?
Can I say, "he just trying to defend" or "he just blames" or is there a different way to express it?
