DOJ official Kristen Clarke comes clean after falsely testifying to Senate that she had never been arrested


By Victor Nava

Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke admitted Wednesday that she was arrested and chose not to disclose the legal matter during her Senate confirmation process because it had been expunged from her record.

During her 2021 confirmation process, Clarke, who heads the Justice Department’s civil rights division, was asked by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) in a questionnaire if she’d “ever been arrested for or accused of committing a violent crime against any person.”

Clarke responded, “No.”

The Daily Signal reported Tuesday that Clarke was arrested in Maryland in relation to a domestic violence complaint back in 2006.

The outlet cited court documents, her ex-husband Reginald Avery and text messages between Avery and the head of the American Accountability Foundation, a conservative nonprofit group.

Avery told the outlet that his finger was “sliced to the bone” after Clarke allegedly came at him with a knife after he revealed that he was cheating on her.

An expunged conviction is NOT the same as “never been arrested.”
The legal system is the last bastion of language meaning what it has meant for years.

Indeed. Fess up to the arrest and explain it was expunged. End of story. But, the first instinct of a leftist is to lie, as if the information cannot be discovered. Of course, they can always depend on being protected from accountability for lying under oath. It’s like keeping a dog from wagging its tail; its just a natural response.

It is more than ironic that an assistant Attorney General would lie under oath at her confirmation hearing. Isn’t this the sort of thing she would prosecute? How typical of a Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden selection. The entire regime is nothing but liars, criminals, mentally unstable pervs and fascists.
