Try some variations.

I deny that I've ever been to Vienna; is it logical to believe, based on

I deny that I've ever seen _Star Wars Episode III_.  Is it logical to
believe, based only on that, that I've seen every other installment?

I deny that I've ever read the second stanza of Coleridge's 'Kubla

This is all rather irrelevant, though, since it's clear you _a priori_
believe nothing claimed by that outfit.  (Which may be justified, mind
you.  Saying "I do not trust them and I consider all of their statements
a nullity: I will only trust what I can independently verify" is a
perfectly logical position.)

There are two options here: either I confess my ignorance, in which case
you'll claim to be more knowledgeable and thus right, or I claim my
knowledge, in which case you'll think I'm clearly "too close to them to
be trusted."

At this point, I don't care what you think.  My original statement -- "I
have seen no credible claims that anyone anywhere in the world is doing
bulk surveillance of email content on an internet-wide scale" -- stands.
