More On Toensing

Here’s more on the Toensing act of last Friday. From Phoenix Woman at Mercury Rising Blog

It was fun watching Toensing blanch when Waxman told her that her testimony would be fact-checked. Waxman made it perfectly clear that he had no time for her nonsense, then gave her a final, elegant stab to let her evade being brought up on perjury charges – if she was willing to “correct” her lies. Now she’s caught between two fires: Admit she lied, or face perjury charges.

It’s fascinating that something that was nearly as big news as the hearing itself would be all but ignored by the mainstream press. Yet the accounts I’ve seen barely mention Toensing’s presence, much less her lying under oath.
