Federal prosecutors last week announced the indictment of U.S. Representative George Santos (R-N.Y.) on a host of charges, including misuse of federal campaign funds and wire fraud, almost all of them resulting from his pathological lies.
Certainly, Santos deserved the attention of prosecutors for lying on federal documents and affidavits that may have helped him win a congressional seat as well as personal lucre.
But if that’s the case, why haven’t federal prosecutors also gone after Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)? She clearly lied her way into a Harvard Law School professorship and an erstwhile presidential candidacy by claiming, in part, quite falsely she was a Native American, supposedly Harvard’s first indigenous law professor.
Her Senate colleague, Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), flatly lied (he said “misspoke”) about being a Vietnam War veteran. He never confessed to “misspeaking” about his résumé until caught. Both senators, apparently like Santos, gained political traction in their various campaigns from such lies, but the two apparently never put them in writing, or at least not as blatantly as did Santos.
Now can we please extend the long arm of the law to reach far beyond a bit player like Santos?
Why not reboot with the really big liars? Their lies far more undermined the integrity of our key agencies and indeed our national security.
Just a few of the liars discussed by the esteemed VDH:
Brennan, only when caught, admitted to both lies. But he faced zero consequences and, in fact, was soon rewarded with an on-air analyst job at MSNBC.
He (James Clapper) faced zero consequences for his perjury. And like Brennan, he marketed his anti-Trump phobias into a comfortable cable news gig.
Then we come to the former interim FBI Director Andrew McCabe. He is also currently working as a cable news commentator.
And so on. Truly a reason to start at the Top - rather than the bottom with (R)epublicans ...

Santos.... The Dems have their liars and we have ours, AOC grew up middle class in Westchester, but in her early politician days, presented herself as a working girl (bartender) from the Bronx.
AOC pretends to being Puerto Rican but can’t even speak a word of Spanish. She is a fraud through and through.
Santos is a real Latino so the Rats have to make an example of him.
Notice they let Bob Menendez get away with raping the underage girls in the Dominican Republic. Two tier justice system.
Since you asked…
Lefties who lie get rewarded, the more outrageous the lying the better the reward.
Lefties want people who can brazenly lie at the top.
So, if citizens were to HANG every politician that LIES, would that mean that there would be NO POLITICIANS LEFT after the hangings??
Would that be a bad thing??
Politicians lie. The government lies. Salesmen lie. Lawyers lie. Madison Avenue lies. Wall Street lies. Big pharma lies. This should be taught in high school. Children are brought up thinking truth telling is the rule and lying is the exception, when the opposite is true.
I have often said that I would pay good money for a screen-saver that depicts Obama, ValJar, Holder, Rice, and other’s rotting corpses gently swaying at the end of a rope attached to a WDC cherry tree.
Good money ...

One possible surprise about the new AI technology is it may enable God-tier lie detection. Such an invention would totally transform our lives for the better.
Hang ‘em all? Works for me!
When Trump is back in the White House, I hope he hires a REAL AG that WILL go after anybody and everybody whether Democrat or Republican.
I have no idea WHO could fill that role. All attorneys these days seem corrupt. I can’t NAME one off hand that is prominent (in the news) that is not corrupt AND who is young enough to have the energy to go after the ocean of crooks in public life.
Thank you for the ping...great as always.
John Kerry also lied
If you like your doctor you can keep him.
