A Little Leftist Perjury & Scandal?


Powerline & LGF came out almost simultaneously with reports that George Galloway is being accused of taking bribes from Saddam Iraqi government and of perjuring himself in front of the Senate.

The only article I've seen on the report is in Britain's left-wing Independent; the article is titled "Galloway lied over Iraqi oil payments, says Congress report." An excerpt:

"In a report issued here, Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman and his colleagues on the Senate Subcommittee for Investigations claim to have evidence showing that Mr Galloway's political organisation and his wife received vouchers worth almost $600,000 (£338,000) from the then Iraqi government."

"We have what we call the smoking gun," said Mr Coleman, who will send the report to the US Department of Justice and the British authorities. The MP could face charges of perjury, making false statements and obstructing a Congressional investigation.

Galloway, of course, denies receiving any money from Saddam; he claims to have supported the tyrant for free.
