“...those involved are forced to answer legitimate questions under oath by lawmakers who actually want to bring light to the matter...”
Who has any belief that people who routinely break the law without compunction would care one way or another about lying under oath?
The responsible parties are themselves unscrupulous, unprincipled white-collar criminals and career liars. They have succeeded in life BECAUSE they place no personal or professional stricture on the sanctity of an ‘oath’.
This applies to all politicians. I am now convinced that political parties consistently recruit and groom the most dishonest and amoral characters they can find. THESE are the people who lead America.
Nothing else will explain how we got where we are.
amoral character one day; venal politician the next
