18. Dick claimed he did not remember his own notes - give me a break
Frankly, any one who claims that they "can't remember" to the extent that Dick Cheney, Alberto Gonzales and others of the past administration did should be declared incompetent and locked up in padded rooms for their own protection. Obviously, they have dementia or some brain wasting disease that renders them incapable of normal functioning. (I am only partially kidding here.)

On a serious note - was Dick actually under oath or was that just his answers to questions asked by the FBI? If the first, perjury sounds reasonable. If the second, charge him with obstructing a federal investigation.
