Senate committees scouring testimony for misleading statements in Russia probe


Nov. 29, 2018 / 3:31 PM EST

"This is a reason people shouldn't lie when they're in front of a congressional investigation," said GOP senator Richard Burr.

WASHINGTON Senate committees investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election are combing through witness testimony for possible misleading or untruthful statements, according to three people familiar with the effort.

The review of testimony to Senate intelligence and judiciary committees comes as President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty Thursday to a charge brought by special counsel Robert Mueller that he lied to Congress to cover up efforts during the presidential campaign to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, said Thursday that the committee had made multiple criminal referrals to Mueller, but added "we're not going to talk about any individuals."

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said the intelligence committee "made referrals where appropriate. I am very glad the special counsel is pursuing those who mislead members of congress."

The committee's chairman, Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., had a stern warning Thursday for witnesses appearing before Congress.

2. They should put them all online and ask for volunteers to point out the truths. The rest would then

be lies. I'd say it would take maybe an hour for us to review them. Most of what they spoke was fantasy.

I'll volunteer..............show your hands if you're interested.......lol

3. This is how it's got to be done

We need to peel off Trump's support layer by thin layer, pare it down until the only folks who will support his corrupt regime are the most irrelevant back-benchers. I don't give a flying fuck about Sen. Burr or Sen. Collins, who are about as useful as screen doors on a submarine, but if they're growing disenchanted with propping up the criminal Trump regime, so much the better. These laggards will never acquire the cachet of a true political hero, but their defections will be a necessary proof to discourage all but the most deplorable Trumpistas.

7. Seems Grassley saw which way the wind was blowing and took a powder...

The Senate Judiciary hearing for the Kavanaugh confirmation, the Senate 'Russia' hearings and the similar House hearings should all result in convictions for perjury, but I think it likely they will have to find a way around Trump's lead blocker Whitaker.
