affirmative  pregnant.A  positive  statement  that  ambiguously  implies a  negative;  a  statement

that  does  not  explicitly  deny  a  charge,  but  instead  answers  an  unasked  question  and  thereby

implies culpability, as when a person says “I returned your car yesterday” to the charge “You stole

my car!” Cf. NEGATIVE PREGNANT . [Blacks Law 8th]
