Judge Napolitano lays the foundation for his comments by saying that “The government is allowed to lie to us, we’re not allowed to lie to the government. But government officials lying to government officials can be a crime.”
He says, “If an investigator in the IG’s office, the Inspector General’s office was told to lie to investigators from the Senate committee looking at this prostitution scandal, like ‘deny that the president knew this’ and he does concoct and express that lie, he can be prosecuted.”
Napolitano says that the lies told by Jay Carney at the time are not a crime, as is holding back the truth for political benefit. The crime would be if one investigator misled another.
