Just Like Nixon. And Clinton?

We already knew that, by trying to persuade James Comey to drop his criminal investigation of Mike Flynn, then firing Comey for refusing to comply, the so called president committed the exact same crime as Richard Nixon, obstruction of justice.

Now, after Comey testified to the Senate and said flatly that the Donald lied about at least two different issues, the Donald has stated that he is prepared to testify under oath. If only we knew what Republicans do when a president lies under oath.

Wait! We do know!

Lying under oath was one of the offenses Republicans charged Bill Clinton with when they impeached him!

Given the Donald’s well documented habit of lying incessantly, it seems reasonable to expect that he would lie if he actually testifies. But his promise to testify under oath is likely about as reliable as his notorious promise to release his tax returns.
