Fortunately I don't have to pontificate too much on this, as someone else has done that for me.
A lot of people's lives were severely impacted on zero evidence. Unfortunately, those that caused the damage won't have to reap what they have sewn.
I am still of the belief that the biggest danger to our way of life is a justice system that doesn't punish false accusations and/or lying under oath. You're talking about the core and basis of an entire free society. If a President can lie under oath with impunity, and the public supports it, why wouldn't other opportunists take advantage of our weak justice system?
