18 USC 1001: to Whoever it may concern


















whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully—
(1) falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device a material fact;                    
(2) makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation; or                    
(3) makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry;                    
shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years
 With respect to any matter within the jurisdiction of the legislative branch, subsection (a) shall apply only to—
 
(2) any investigation or review, conducted pursuant to the authority of any committee, subcommittee, commission or office of the Congress, consistent with applicable rules of the House or Senate.
So, the Senate Judiciary Committee should refer Brassy Fraud for prosecution for perjury under this statute.

Ditto the other bimbos and asstards who came forward with recockulously false allegations.

Anybody who tried to influence witnesses to the confirmation process should be charged with suborning perjury and/or witness tampering.

If any of them hold government positions, the additional charge of misprision of felony is in order.

When Brassy Fraud has to spend that $1M GoFundMe windfall for her legal defense, loses anyways, gets fined, and does 1-5 in the federal pen, this sort of happy horseshit will become a lot less fashionable.

Her buddy, the former fed, whom she coached in taking a polygraph, should also be wrangled in. She'll have no excuses either.

Neither will the Senate staffers of three or four Dumbocrat senators.

And by all means, lets find out who leaked the letter, including throwing a journalist or three into prison for a year or two for contempt of court, when they refuse to cough up their source(s). This magnitude of stupid should leave a mark, on everyone who tried it. And the Marquess of Queensbury is dead.

If any senators are demonstrably culpable, censure, impeachment, and expulsion from that body are all well within the realm of their reasonable response.

None of this matters a damn whether or not Kavanaugh is confirmed.
Nor on the outcome of the midterms.

But if the whoremongers and perjury peddlers lose on both counts, throwing out three or four senators for high crimes and misdemeanors, and prosecuting a dozen or two minions for this outrageous travesty would send a healthy message about trying to upend justice and burn down 800 years of settled jurisprudence.

BFYTW.

The Senate "should" do this? Well, okay...but there's a reason "should" is a word I strain never to use.

The last person tried and sentenced for lying to Congress under oath? Alger Hiss. More than sixty years ago. That's not because such lies don't occur; it's because the legal defenses against such a charge are so strong. "I misremembered" usually covers all the bases. It might be unfortunate, but that's the state of the law in our time.

Aesop said...

Actually, Fran, the last person tried, convicted and sentenced for lying to Congress that I recall was Oliver North, in 1989.
Perhaps this will jog your memory of events.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oliver_North#Iran–Contra_affair

That's less than thirty years ago.

Brassy Fraud had competent counsel. She was asked a direct question, and she gave a materially false answer, and there is a credible witness to impeach that testimony, among others, and on several other counts.

In any event, she lied, and she deserves the entire legal system and process her baseless allegations denied to a better man, and she should get the full circus, all three rings, in order to be put at peril of her fortune and freedom to explain before a jury of her peers why they should believe her hogwash, and not give an impartial judge a good chance to throw the book at her. If "I mis-remembered" cuts any ice at trial, bully for her. Let's give her a chance to try to pull that one.

Not only pour encourager les autres, which is sufficient in and of itself to justify the whole response, but also to uncover how deep this conspiracy to obstruct justice and suborn perjury goes, and root out all the other co-conspirators.

When the (D)s see that the saw of justice has handles at both ends, they'll be a lot less enthusiastic about pushing it next falsely time, with the prospect of facing justice for the crimes they've committed this past month as a fresh reminder for the next thirty years.

And having suddenly found a spinal column, it would be an awful and unforgiveable shame to let it decalcify again before the congressional Republicans grow another one. That could take another thirty years, if ever.

And when (not if) she goes down in flames criminally, and then gets sued for defamation and slander, whatever's left of that GoFundMe windfall gets transferred to Kavanaugh, and anything subsequent as well, thus rendering any attempt for the Leftard hordes to slip her cash effectively a direct recompense to Judge Kavanaugh an his family, which should ensure about 60M of their heads explode as well.

Win-win.

ranger said...

@Francis Absolutely correct. It will never happen. She and her cronies will just be added to the list of those who broke the law but were too big to prosecute and jail. Perhaps a good slap on the hand might be in order though.

Badger said...

At least LTC North admitted he lied and told them why as he endeavored to remind or explain to the inquisitors about protecting a compartmented program (which was hilarious in the spectator sport sense).

Can we get orange jumpsuits for Ford's attorneys as well, along with disbarment, in a "Quigley Down Under" Alan Rickman (RIP) moment?

"Oh by the way. You're fired."

WarHorse said...

Careful what you wish for.

Not that I believe a word she said, but it would be the job of the prosecution to prove that she lied. And that would be twisted to, prove Kavanaugh did NOT rape her. Proving a negative is pretty difficult, especially in a he said she said case. If you can't prove he didn't rape her, that must mean that he did rape her. Of course, that's how it would be spun.

Can you imagine the fallout if the prosecution failed?!?

Aesop said...

@WarHorse:

You're totally missing the point.
The lies were why and when she put in a second door, and whether or not she ever coached someone on taking a polygraph.

A federal court will be presided over by an actual federal judge, and the jackassery permitted by spineless squishes in the Senate will be tossed out summarily without ever seeing the light of day. Contempt of Court, and spending a week or a year in jail rethinking your sins, kind of have that effect.

That's the whole goddam point of the exercise.
It will be an actual trial, with rules of evidence and procedure.

No Kangaroos Allowed.

Whether she's convicted or not (and the overwhelming odds say she'd plead out in about 0.5 seconds) justice wins, for everyone ever accused.

Y'know, almost like we had 800 years of law, precedent, and common sense distilled into the idea.

Roger said...

Ya gotta remember that things are different when you are a dimocrat. Laws do NOT apply to you nor do social mores. You can say or do the most outrageous things & nothing will happen to you.
For concrete evidence of this FACT, please refer to the Clintons, all of them. For today's version, please refer to Keith Ellison.

Stones said...

For anyone saying "it will never stick!" Who gives a shit if it sticks? They will use lawfare for their goals. Time to turn the trick. Let her pony up the cash to pay her legal defense. So what if she doesnt go to the pokey, she spends her time, and go fund me defending herself.

TwoDogs said...

Aesop, you are absolutely right. I've been thinking these exact same things the past few weeks. If Fraud is allowed to skate it'll just encourage the next wrinkly catlady to step up and take one for the team the next time they're losing and need a late hit. If "take one" means "nothing happens to you" for either little white or big outrageous lies they'll have no shortage of volunteers. If, on the other hand, Christine's Wikipedia entry ends "she is currently serving out her sentence in Federal Prison", I would predict a much smaller pool of willing wrinkly catladies.

StarNinja said...

Cool. What do we do with the ones with true and credible allegations?

Aesop said...

As if there were any. What color is the sky in your world?

StarNinja said...

Same sky as yours, brother. As for the matter of if there any accusers out there in the wide world who are telling the truth... I'm sure there are. You've probably even met of a few of them. Hell you might even be related to one. They hide well. Comes with the gig, stigma being what it is. Semper Fi.

rick said...

StarNinja,

I'm curious. Are you suggesting that lying is okay as long as there are "true and credible allegations" in play?

StarNinja said...

It's not a lie if it's true and credible? But I think I get what you're asking so I will answer in the spirit of your question. If a "person" is alleging something that is true and credible during a "trial" but is lying about the main thrust (no pun intended) of the accusation, then I don't think that is okay, or Honest or Just or anything positive. Now, if the accuser is saying the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help them God, then I think a fair hearing is the American thing to do.

Dan said...

NOTHING is going to happen to any of the conspirators involved in this subversive effort. Grassley will ASK for the left to turn over documents etc. The left will ignore him. He may subpoena them....the left will STILL ignore him. By the time the Senate gets around to issuing warrants to GO AND GET THIS STUFF it will have long since been destroyed. And to be honest that is EXACTLY what BOTH sides of the aisle wants. They want this to just go away. The left wants to regroup and start planning their NEXT assault on freedom, due process and the "American Way" etc. The
right simply wants this ugly episode to end so they can go back to pretending they are in charge and that they are the good guys. Neither side wants the ugliness and more importantly the truth to be brought into the light by trying ANYONE for the crimes committed in this campaign of character assassination and subversion. Just like the Judge Roy Moore debacle went away LITERALLY the day after he lost the election this too will be buried as quickly as possible. Neither side is interested in pursuing the issue....for different reasons...but for reasons just the same.

Aesop said...

Total "credible" allegations against Kavanaugh, ever, to date: 0.
Total batshit crazy horseshit thrown against the wall by Soros operatives trying to get something to stick: every damned one.

That's quite a mountain of feces you're going to have to crawl over to get across the finish line there.
Best wishes.

And when a witness commits multiple unrelated instances of clear perjury in the same statement, anything else she says is completely discounted, a principle of law dating back to ancient times.

Jurisprudence be kicking Progressivism's ass. Bigly.

Be happy. The fact that it is will probably be the only thing that's going to keep 60M of them alive this year.
But they may still manage to set themselves on fire despite this.
They just can't stop fucking with things they should leave alone.
Like the rule of law.

StarNinja said...

Damn you, Soros! *shakes fist at heavens*
I for one don't envy anyone having to climb over legal feces, regardless of their size or geologic rating. Hell if I did, I'd have joined the FBI! I kid, I kid of course. But that's the job ain't it? It's messy and thankless, but at the end of the day it's worth it for the truth tellers out there. Better grab a shovel.

You haven't been paying attention. Dr. Fraud is Deep State CIA. The song and dance is in the book of methods for their ass(ets).

Spin an emotional narrative but NEVER give any details that can be verified or disproven. Any of the other "witnesses" can only say, "I don't remember anything like that" , which is a weak attempt at proving the negative.

There is no "proof" to use against Agent Fraud in a trial. Dr. Fraud's story is a professional pile of crap; most excellent crap.

Just try getting a conviction on her, "telling what she remembered", or showing any "intent" to commit fraud.

Now if there are letters or documents sitting around somewhere.....

StarNinja said...

Letters or documents... Let me check by my giant calendar from 1982 :P

Aesop said...

I forgot is not a valid defense to accusative testimony regarding perjury.
You don't get convicted for what you remember doing, you get convicted for what you did. In her case, last week, on live national TV.

Anybody still stuck on the allegations from 36 years ago is the one "not paying attention".

That crapola is off the table. False testimony about second doors and not coaching her friend the former fed on taking a polygraph is what's on the table. And on those, she's toast.

Saying "Yes, I made materially false statements, and in hindsight I now realize that it's because I couldn't remember that a week ago" is all that's in play.
The technical term for that in court is called a plea of "guilty".
5 years in the pokey, do not pass "Go". Oh, and a hefty fine.
Then, the civil trial.

The only time "I forget..." is a valid defense is if that's what you testify, under oath. Once you make your statement, what you remember or forgot is immaterial.
She's bought a five years sentence once the fact is established that reality and her sworn testimony are at odds.
Welcome to how things actually work in real life in federal court, instead of what you think happens.

Thanks for paying, and we have some lovely parting gifts for ya.
Tell 'em what they've won, Johnny...
