General Clapper Changes Story Again, Says He ‘Misunderstood’ Wyden’s Question

By: Tuesday February 18, 2014 6:45 am

Director of National Intelligence General James Clapper has changed his story once again on why he gave a false answer in testimony before Congress while under oath. In a friendly interview with The Daily Beast Clapper changed his explanation from his previous statement that what he said was the “least untruthful” answer he could provide to now claiming he “misunderstood” the question he was being asked.

Obama Administration Abuses National Security, Secrecy Powers

By: Thursday February 13, 2014 6:00 pm

Would the US Government executive branch abuse its state secrets privilege, abuse the classification of documents, and use its ability to prevent a foreign national’s entry to the US to bar her access to the court system? Would it spend millions of taxpayer dollars on lawyers improperly?

By: Friday May 24, 2013 2:20 pm

Pity the Poor Judges

I just thought of something, if it is now acceptable to use forged and perjurious documents in foreclosure cases, DOCX, LPS and the other document mills have a huge new market available to them with homeowners. If forged and backdated allonges and assignments are OK, so too should be forged Satisfactions of Mortgage. Once the homeowner obtains a forged SAT from a document mill and files it with the county clerk, in theory, shouldn’t their foreclosure case be dismissed?

Robosigning = Smoking Gun for Multiple Fraud

By: Tuesday January 31, 2012 3:20 pm

Any deal that immunizes robosigning sabotages everything because the robosigning is the smoking gun. No one resorts to creating fabricated documents unless they are desperate and know they have no other hope of winning. It’s the illegal strategy equivalent of a Hail Mary Pass after time has run out. Had the robosigning never been exposed, they might have gotten away with winning through perjury, so the idea of immunizing it is preposterous.

FDL Book Salon Welcomes James B. Stewart, Tangled Webs: How False Statements Are Undermining America: From Martha Stewart to Bernie Madoff

By: Saturday May 14, 2011 1:59 pm

Rarely do lies simply go out in the world and stand on their own. To have staying power, they require a complex network of ancillary lies and human enablers (sometimes knowing, sometime unwitting) who create a web of falsehood. These tangled webs can drain families’ bank accounts, get people killed, cause great institutions to fall, even help crash an economy.

Thomas’s Promises: Why Is a Perjurer on the Supreme Court?

By: Friday October 22, 2010 8:00 am

In leaving an early-morning voicemail for Professor Anita Hill, insisting that she apologize to Clarence Thomas for “what you did with my husband“, Ginni Thomas has re-ignited scrutiny into Thomas’ testimony at his confirmation hearing. That scrutiny does not leave the Supreme Court justice in a flattering light. In fact, yet another credible witness has come forward today, adding one more person relating a nearly identical description of Thomas’ outrageous behavior toward women (pdf) and his obsession with pornography. With multiple victims of Thomas’ inappropriate behavior coming forward, the question now must be asked why we allow a Supreme Court justice to remain on the bench when it is clear that he committed perjury in his confirmation hearing by categorically denying confirmed events.
