Is It Legal To Lie To Congress: False Statements Accountability Act Of 1996 (H.R. 3166)

Op-Ed  by Catherine J. Frompovich

Lies, lies, and more lies?

“It’s legal to lie in the swamp.”


With all the accusations, allegations and what at times are perceived as “lies” by enthusiasts regarding political agendas “owned” by either the Democrat or Republican parties, it’s almost impossible to figure out what’s factual, truth, hyperbole, spin, subterfuge, provable or downright “fake news” for which The New York Times, Washington Post and CNN TV network have been called on the carpet, then had to issue retractions or corrections.

Nevertheless, all the recent “Kabuki-like theatrics” regarding “RussiaGate” and other “hot topic items de jour,” which basically amount to power-play pissing contests, in my opinion, tickled my interests and I began to wonder if there were some unknown legal loophole(s) somewhere within the U.S. Code.  Apparently, that specifically “cherry-picked favor” was not granted to certain individuals in the federal “swampland” until 1996.

Washington, DC, “swamp critters” apparently received a “perquisite/privilege law” in 1996 which, quite frankly, ought to be illegal!  That piece of legislation, H.B. 3166, introduced into the 104th U.S. Congress during the Bill Clinton Administration, was presented by a one-term freshman House member, William J. Martini, who later became a federal judge.  How very interesting!

In 1994, the Republican Party nominated Martini for Congress in New Jersey’s 8th congressional district. He faced off against one-term incumbent Herbert Klein, who had fallen out of favor with the voters. …. Martini defeated Klein and took one of the 54 seats in the House of Representatives the Republicans gained that year.[2]

Martini was defeated for re-election in 1996 by Paterson mayor Bill Pascrell, and was one of eight Republican Representatives elected in the 1994 Republican Revolution to be defeated in their re-election bids.[3] He has not run for political office since then.

According to Congress.gov, a significant and interesting co-sponsor of that bill was none other than the then-Rep. Charles Schumer (D, NY)!

However, the information presented below, which recently was published online, stated the bill included “a peculiar Subsection (b) that permits judges, attorneys and parties to lie to Congress, courts and agencies without liability…”

SEC. 2. RESTORING FALSE STATEMENTS PROHIBITION.
Section 1001 of title 18, United States Code, is amended to read as follows:

Is this the section being referred to?
‘‘§ 1001. Statements or entries generally
‘‘(b) Subsection (a) does not apply to a party to a judicial proceeding, or that party’s counsel, for statements, representations, writings or documents submitted by such party or counsel to a judge or magistrate in that proceeding.”  [CJF emphasis]

If so, then I wonder if those who use this “perk of law” are not entitled to such an exemption, since no one supposedly is above the laws in the USA, as is being demonstrated by the determination to “find something if you can” legal approach to President Trump’s winning the 2016 election and the apparent New World Order’s, Deep State’s and Shadow Government’s apparent sheer dismay, and who now are enacting a “Plan B”.

The video below explains issues readers may enjoy learning about, especially since they probably won’t be discussed by the mainstream, lamestream, controlled U.S. media.
