Former acting Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker, has been asked to return to the Judiciary Committee to “clarify” his February 8 testimony, because they suspect he committed perjury.
Perjury is a felony. A person convicted of perjury under federal law may face up to five years in prison and fines.
A new report claims Donald Trump’s former doormat, and attorney, Michael Cohen, who will spill Trump’s beans tomorrow, has been disbarred.
On the eve of Michael Cohen’s testimony before Congress, Matt Gaetz tweets the following:
This tweet is a threat attempting intimidation directed at Michael Cohen, a witness.
Witness tampering is a felony:
In Executive Time & randomly came across 18 U.S. Code § 1512(b):
“Whoever knowingly uses intimidation, threatens, or corruptly persuades another person…with intent to…influence, delay, or prevent the testimony of any person in an official proceeding” commits a felony. The punishment for the offense of witness tampering is up to 20 years.
Matt Gaetz response to reporter’s questions regarding his witness tampering tweet:
“It’s not witness tampering, it’s witness testing.” ~Matt Gaetz
