yes if you lie to the FBI then they find out you lied and you testify under oath you will go to jail.

re Dave's question: Hoover had something on everybody. and Johnson probably had a lot on people but not as much as Hoover.
I am sure racists agree with that and think that is true much like they think he had hookers and laughed about women getting rapped.

You mean the statue they had a Chinese artist do instead of American artist?https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/...st-3235257.php

I'll never forget how horribly the FBI, with J. Edgar Hoover as leader, treated MLK, put it out there that he was a dirty Commie. The FBI hasn't changed much since then IMO
Racist thought if they could label the man something despicable like a communist or an adulterer then he would lose credibility as a civil rights leader. I guess they thought people were too dumb to realize their game.

in many ways several of the platforms put forth by candidates are a continuation of what he started.
