It is perfectly legal to lie to Congress, or anyone in the U.S. Government..and they can lie to you, too. Anyone can do it but you have to know what law your are looking for. Learn about the 1996 law they passed while you were “asleep” to make sure that no one goes to jail.
The False Statements Accountability Act (“FSAA”) was sponsored by a one-term freshman Senator William J. Martini (NJ) who later became a federal judge. It included a bizarre Subsection (b) that permits judges, attorneys and parties to lie to Congress, courts and agencies without liability.
Not of them are going to jail until this law gets revised to reflect equal punishment for equal crime.
