Patton Oswalt makes his living as a professional actor and comedian. But did you know he also moonlights as a legal expert? No, really! When he got wind of this bit from former Trump official Rick Gates’ testimony regarding Roger Stone and Wikileaks:
Rick Gates direct is over. Brief but hardly lacking in substance, including government getting on record that Donald Trump himself talked about upcoming WikiLeaks disclosures based on conversation with Roger Stone

Trump denied in writing and under oath to Mueller any recollection of ever discussing WikiLeaks with Stone or being aware of Stone discussing WikiLeaks with the campaign.
Gates testified he was in the car with Trump when he Trump talked to Stone about it. https://t.co/BEUPfCtyk2

It didn’t take Oswalt but a second to figure out what was really going on:
Hey Republicans — that’s flat-out perjury. Same thing you impeached Clinton for. I’m sure you’ll do the right thing and act on your rock-solid values, right? Right? https://t.co/vFPBAejSuO

Flat-out perjury, eh? Well, it’s a good try, Patton, but that’s not quite how this works.
Actually it's flat out he said/she said…..

He said one thing
He said another thing
I'm going with the guy saying another thing because it supports my 3+ year disdain for the person I hate.
Plausible case you make there.
