Lettter: Lying to Congress should not be a crime

Why is it a crime to lie to Congress? Another show trial begins
soon. Roger Clemens is being charged with lying to Congress, the
biggest collection of liars is the world.
Dear Editor,

Why is it a crime to lie to Congress? Another show trial begins soon. Roger Clemens is being charged with lying to Congress, the biggest collection of liars is the world.

Congress people from both parties and houses continually lie to the public and press daily. They use the term “being disingenuous” instead of lying. Perhaps Roger Clemens is just being disingenuous, which is acceptable to Congress people.

Our own government is selling assault weapons to drug cartels in Mexico and we are worried about Roger Clemens’ Congressional testimony?
