110. Enquiries ought not be in truth mere fishing expeditions
Perhaps, but every investigation is just that. Beginning with a certain number of facts and evidence, and proceeding based upon what is discovered during the "fishing expedition." There are any number of cases being investigated where the prosecution does not have complete knowledge of the crime. That is why there is an investigation. If a witness lies to investigators during this process, then that is considered a crime.

Am I mistaken in my belief that it is a crime to lie to investigators?

After all, she could have invoked the 5th amendment and said nothing at all. Instead, she chose to lie.
