LYING TO COVER THEIR ASSES, OBAMA and HILLARY!
Par for the course. :(
This flagrant criminality reminds me of this quote by a classic liberal SCOTUS Justice. --Ron W"Decency, security, and liberty alike demand that Government officials shall be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the Citizen. In a Government of laws, existence of the Government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our Government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the Government becomes a law-breaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself. It invites anarchy. To declare that, in the administration of the law, the end justifies the means would bring a terrible retribution. Against that pernicious doctrine, this Court should resolutely set its face.” --Louis D. Brandeis, SCOTUS JusticeDissenting, Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438 (1928).
"Decency, security, and liberty alike demand that Government officials shall be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the Citizen. Thanks.
Title 18 Sec 1001 US Code make it illegal for a citizen to lie to a federal agent. THERE is NO law making it illegal for a federal agent to lie.
ALL Federal officials and agents are employees and public servants working UNDER the delegated powers of the States and the People. Therefore, they should be forbidden to lie to their superiors! Additionally, we have the right to remain silent protected by the 5th Amendment, so don't talk them when they come meddling into those matters forbidden to them by the 4th Amendment. To rehearse from the quote I cited above, "...Government officials SHALL be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the Citizen." --Ron W
