Regardless of sworn oaths, it is still illegal to lie to Congress.

But you won't get called on it, as long as your party is in the majority.

I heard one of his defenses will be "Oh, sorry I forgot to mention all the Russian meetings.  But really, I met with tons of foreign agents from lots of countries that I also didn't disclose."

Seems like a winner to me!

This creates perjury trap exposure for Trump Jr. & Manafort vis-a-vis the Mueller, Senate & House Intel investigations & future hearings 10/

A (transcribed) interview is a MUCH better format for obtaining information than a hearing. No Member grandstanding, no 5-min rounds 11/


Good summary.  Check it.

"But that's not how this works. That's now how any of this works!"

Can any of you super smart Farkers tell me if it's normal for witnesses testifying before committees to do so not under oath? Or is this unusual? 

I do have to say, I am learning more about how our government works than I ever did in civics class throughout this whole strange affair...

You're not allowed to lie to Congress.  Of course, these farkers have been breaking the law since the minute dickhead was sworn in, if not looooong before, so don't hold your breath about consequences.

Do you mean the oath or the education in civics? Or the Trumpy michegas?

I did find a Slate article from when Gonzales gave testimony back in 2006 which kind of explained a bit about how sworn testimony is handled by various committees in various circumstances with a special cameo appearance from Beauregard:

"During committee hearings, witnesses typically take an oath at the discretion of the committee chair. An oath-similar to the one used in a court of law-is typically required during confirmation and investigative hearings. Attorney General Janet Reno, for one, was sworn in before a 1995 hearing on the ATF's actions during the Branch Davidian siege. When congressional committees investigated Watergate and the Iran-Contra Affair, witnesses were required to swear an oath as well. Monday's NSA hearings were about executive policy; they were not an investigation into the specific actions of the NSA. In an oversight hearing such as this, a policy witness is not usually asked to swear an oath before the judiciary committee.
Procedure also varies widely by committee. While the judiciary committee requires an oath only sometimes, according to the procedural guidelines of the Senate select committee on ethics, "all witnesses ... [must] be sworn unless the Senator presiding decides otherwise." TheSenateforeign relations committee, by contrast, almost never requires one.
Decisions on whether to swear in a witness are generally made before the start of a hearing. If a committee member disagrees with the chair's decision, the member can appeal to the chair. On Monday, the judiciary committee battled it out after Democratic Sen. Russell Feingold questioned Republican Chairman Arlen Specter's decision not to swear in Gonzales. (The attorney general had volunteered to take the oath.) Senate committees have their own methods of settling disputes-the judiciary committee took a vote after Feingold requested it.
Sen. Jeff Sessions voiced an objection to Gonzales taking the oath, saying, 'I think it's not necessary that a duly confirmed Cabinet member have to ... give an oath when they are, in effect, under oath and subject to prosecution if they don't tell the truth.' But the oath a Cabinet member swears when entering office does not include a provision to 'tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth'; it states that the official will uphold the tenets of the office and the Constitution. A witness may not be criminally prosecuted for violating this oath of office, which does not have any provisions that govern testimony before Congress. An oath sworn during a previous hearing is also not applicable during future hearings." Link.

And this just in from Seth Abramson, Kushner's partner's lawyer was Veselnitskya, and he definitely knew who she was. If he had left the meeting early, it was because he knew exactly what was going on and was trying to extract himself from it.

Sourced from The Guardian, but i can't find the article yet.

For the record, I still use AOL for my email account. Why? I say, "why not?"  I've had it since the beginning and it's what my family/friends all know...so what's the use in changing it coontil, of course, AOL vanishes).

And, emphatically "NO!"--I will never use Gmail. I've hated Google since their takeover of Youtube and when they initially disabled my original Youtube beta-test/"legacy" account. I've since gotten it back but it wasn't until Google realized that I was one of their first users/testers. Yes, I am old.

As I tried to explain above, he's going on record and has several more testimonies to give.   There is a very good chance this will result in him perjuring himself or revealing that others have committed perjury.   The other option is him pleading the 5th where they won't get anything out of him.

And technically if he lies , it's a crime.  Not that I hold any belief that a rich white guy suffers any consequences from that.
