Scott Adams has a good general rule for situations like this. If you ask a government agency a question and they say “we can’t answer that”, it’s AN ADMISSION OF GUILT! It’s true every damn time!
Armed, with what, exactly?
"'When a mob of armed rioters use force in an attempt to overthrow the United States government, that is domestic terrorism,' Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said, as she turned up the heat on Sanborn and Assistant Attorney General Matthew Olsen. 'My understanding is prosecutors have not been pushing for the sentencing enhancements available for acts of domestic terrorism.'"
Not exactly @ScottAdamsSays position, but he does say the burden of proof should always be on the government that what they're doing isn't corrupt. Transparency, he says, is key to proving that.
To the extent that there no adequate justification for "I can't answer that," one has to infer they either don't know, or are hiding something that'd be embarrassing.
One may generally assume that whenever a bureaucrat or pol speaks into a microphone, the words that follow are some degree of BULLSHIT.
Surely this was her brother Jack.
That's not how they operate. They need to keep you wondering. Paranoid.
@darulharb Because it would be Perjury….
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
