HIGH CRIMES Kos over at Daily Kos has culled together an excellent post full of quotes from GOP senators about the perniciousness of perjury and obstruction of justice.

The senators were all talking in the context of the Clinton impeachment. But it's difficult to see why the context should matter.

As Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) explained at the time: "Perjury and obstruction hammer away at the twin pillars of our legal system: truth and justice."

That's as true today as it was in 1999.
