Oh, how forgetful!


To the editor:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, speaking under oath, maintained that when he lied under oath during his confirmation hearings and afterward, he wasn’t lying because — at the time — he hadn’t remembered the events in question.

Is there any legal precedent for accepting that a person who has lied under oath can justifiably claim innocence because of a faulty memory?

Probably there is Ms. Helbok. I seem to remember the Clintons and many other Democrats using the old "I can't recall" excuse a million times. It always bothered me when they did it, but I guess you never noticed until Jeff Sessions used it.
