76. Your "under oath" question is irrelevant.

Knowingly lieing to Congress is a felony weather you are "under oath" or not. That myth that not being under oath will absolve anyone from legal cuplability seems to have been planted in the media as a way of discrediting testimony. Of course, actually prosecuting anyone for this requires an actual justice system that would hold people with wealth and power accountable, which we don't have.
