Indeed, around midnight Tuesday, CNN posted a story quoting a man named Patrick J. Smyth, a former high school classmate of Kavanaugh's who said he had been cited by Ford as having been at the party where she was allegedly attacked. "I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as 'PJ' who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post," Smyth wrote in a letter to the Senate committee, according to CNN. "I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh."

But do Kavanaugh's inaccurate statements rise to the level of perjury? Did he commit a federal crime? I put the question to several legal scholars, and the reply I received was generally: "no."

Would someone please point out the lie in Trump Jr's Statement? Hell, can you tell me what part is even false?


@DonaldJTrumpJr
It's a shame that CNN's ratings are down 41%. What's worse is there's a simple solution that they refuse to accept. Stop Lying to try to make @realDonaldTrump look bad.
www.breitbart.com ...

It's really classy that Anderson Cooper (AC) claims, falsely, that Trump Jr called this Florence. Unless he did so somewhere else? Because there's no evidence of it in that tweet.
At around 1 minute in that video:
Cooper: "Donnie Jr was claiming that it showed me in Florence faking the depths of floodwaters to somehow harm his father"

Does anyone actually have any evidence of Donnie Jr claiming that the picture depicted AC in Florence? All I see is Anderson Cooper making a false claim...the true definition of irony in an article about a lie that never was.

lie
1.an intentionally false statement.
used with reference to a situation involving deception or founded on a mistaken impression.

Jr's statement almost meets that defintion...and it would if Donnie Jr. had referenced a situation founded on a mistaken impression. Trump Jr never referenced or even insinuated that AC was at the Florence flood, that was all AC's doing after the fact.

So, AC was telling a lie (falsely claiming that Donnie Jr had done something he didn't) in order to shut down Trump Jr's non-lie.
Outstanding. Good find, Corky.
