Just curious. If this clown Carney is knowingly lying to the press at press conferences. When the inevitable happens (someone comes forward and volunteers to be state's witness or evidence regarding crimes committed by the administration) what happens to Carney?
Not aware of any statute that prohibits lying at a press conference.
He isn’t under oath, and you would have to prove he was lying as well...I think.
Nothing. He’s not swearing under oath or testifying under penalty of perjury. You can lie all day like a hound dog. Unless your under oath, there’s not much anyone can do.
Nice try nOOb ....
Don’t know. But he needs to get some kind of an award for resembling ‘American Psycho’. He reeks of ‘serial killer’ every time I see him. Appears to be mild mannered.......but can snap at any time because of his narcissism. Oh, wait. We’re taking about Carney, right? *guarded chuckle*
Jay Carney reminds me of Kevin Bacon’s character in “Animal House”: “ALL IS WELL!!! ALL IS WELL!!!”
“Do you like Huey Lewis and the News?”
I thought they paid him to lie.
Bambi lies every day! And still we can’t do anything about it. He would have to lie under oath to make it stick.... Notice he won’t enter a courtroom. Heck he couldn’t even place his hand on the bible for his swearing in ceremony without blowing it and had to have a do over behind closed doors!
You think his lying on this day is a novelty? He must falsify and deceive early and often when he steps up to the mic. Always. It’s in the job description and a prized skill set for the asset. And, btw, he’s not an accomplished, world-class liar. Funny, none in this adm seem to be. Holder telegraphs his lies with his painful grimaces; it’s too transparent (and funny). Now, Clintoon, he was an epic liar...

There is one thing that the press can do if they have the guts. Every time Carney tells a fib, they should burst into laughter and mock him. He lies only work because few, if any, challenge him at the moment he utters the lie.
He’ll get a raise. For democrats, lying is a good career move.
The short answer is no, since he’s not testifying under oath.
His job is to lie. He did it with the Miami Herald and Time magazine. His wife is Claire Shipman who tells storied for ABC News...
Maybe, he is sort of a ham sandwich...
His lying does have consequences......A high paying gig at MSNBC
No, but he could suffer eternal damnation.
Unfortunately, no, but he has pretty much ended his “career” as a “journalist” and relegated himself to paid hackery.
“Can Jay Carney be indicted for lying at press conferences?”
But it will probably help him with getting a job at one of the networks in 2013....
Traditionally, Carney passes into obscurity. If this were a just world, Carney and the media fellow travelers would be breaking rocks in West Texas.
"The American press is all about lies! All they tell is lies, lies and more lies!"
Perhaps a civil lawsuit for defamation and false accusations...
Lying? By a press spokesman? That’s part of the job description.
His lips were moving...
Carney says he CAN. That must mean he can’t.
Double secret probation.
I would so love to see that. Ridicule is the best criticism.
As a former resident of West Texas, I know that this is far to good for Carney. I would suggest the "empty quarter' of Saudi Arabia. I have been there and worked in that hell hole. 100 degrees in the winter, and a hell of a lot more in the summer, big black scorpions, and camel spiders and camels themselves are descipable beasts.
The most beautiful thing there is the British Airways flight that takes you back to London;
It’s not illegal for him to lie to the press. Heck, the press lies to us all the time, so what’s just one more lie.
I just don’t understand how anyone could get up for work every day, knowing that he’s going to do nothing but lie and cover up for a corrupt, evil regime.
...what did they finally do to Baghdad Bob?
