First, let me say that I have a great deal of respect for the FBI and law enforcement in general. Yet, from recent observations with the the special counsel, I have come to one conclusion. If the FBI ever starts asking me questions, I will not say a thing. It would seem he is using the purjury without restraint, convictint people left and right, even if they did nothing wroing.
It would seem that, nowadays, you can be charged with perjury, even if I tell nothing but the truth. Moreover, I can lose my house and about everything I currently own just to pay lawyers. Therefore, I have one simple solution. I won’t need a lawyer either. All I need to do is keep my mouth shut. The only talking I will do is to remind my inquisitor of what the special counsel has done.
Again, it is the unintended consequences. The special counsel has shown the county what can happen if we open our mouths, even in the presence of a lawyer. I suspect I was not the first nor will I be the last to notice that the damage that can be done to a person’s life. Naturally, if I say nothing, they cannot charge me with lying.
Perhaps they can still convict me of something, but they will not be able to use my words to do it. So, until I see some reasonable restraint, I’m just going to keep my mouth shut.
It is time that someone put a restraint on the man. There is no reason to ruin a man’s life simply because of a slip of memory. It is all the more reason for me to keep my mouth shut. I am now 71. My memory is nowhere near what is used to be.
