I swear everybody in this administration lies.

A Democratic senator requested Friday that the FBI open a perjury investigation into Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, accusing her of lying about the Trump administration’s family separation policy during sworn testimony to Congress.

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) released a previously undisclosed memo Thursday from high-level officials at the Department of Homeland Security and the Justice Department in 2017 that outlined policy options to deal with illegal immigration at the border. The second item on the list is a policy to “separate family units.” The memo also notes that an upshot of such policies will be the “substantial deterrent effect.”

Nielsen has long denied there was a policy to separate families; during testimony in front of Congress in December, she said, “We’ve never had a policy for family separation.”

“Compelling new evidence has emerged revealing that high-level Department of Homeland Security officials were secretly and actively developing a new policy and legal framework for separating families as far back as December 2017,” Merkley wrote in a letter to FBI Director Christopher A. Wray. “In light of these conflicting facts, the FBI should immediately investigate whether Secretary Nielsen’s statements violate 18 U.S. Code § 1621, 18 U.S.C § 1001, or any other relevant federal statutes that prohibit perjury and false statements to Congress.”

I can hardly wait until administration officials and Trump family members are called before the new Democratically led Congress and called out for their past misstatements. 

It is going to be a circus.

A very, very entertaining circus.

    I am so VERY proud that Senator Merkley represents my state. Nielsen is a suck up trumpeteer, as are all his appointments.

      And just how would he attempt to round them all up? He can barely find his penis to pee under that gut.

        Well he can start at Mar a Lago and probable other trump properties since he hires illegals.

    (THREAD) #NoMoreDeaths statement on today’s conviction:
    Federal Magistrate Judge Velasco issued a guilty verdict in this week’s case against 4 NMD aid volunteers, convicting them on all charges. A date for sentencing will be set within 10 days. #HumanitarianAidIsNeverACrime

    Sentencing for each charge can range from 0 to 6 months of time in federal prison and a fine of up to $500. The remaining volunteers facing misdemeanor charges are scheduled to begin trial on February 26 and March 4 of this year.

    The 4 aid workers are among 9 #NMD volunteers facing charges for their efforts to place food and water on the Cabeza Prieta Wildlife Refuge, a vast and remote area near Ajo, AZ where 155 border crossers are known to have died since 2001 and countless more have disappeared.

      “Folklore also describes the act of sexually penetrating a succubus as akin to entering a cavern of ice, and there are reports of succubi forcing men to perform cunnilingus on their vulvas that drip with urine and other fluids.”
