The Political Ruling Class testifying. I was a cop in a major metro area for nearly 40 years. I testififed while under oath thousands of times during my career. And, I can tell you that I engaged in the kind of testimonial "dodging" that these politicians do whenever any of them appear under oath before a Congressional committee or panel the judge would have tossed me in jail for contempt and left me there until such time as I testified appropriately. These people are simply above the law. I fear for out country.
