    From the article:

    Two top officials at the State Department's Diplomatic Security Service (DS) -- the federal law enforcement agency that protects American diplomats and investigates allegations of criminal misconduct by State Department employees -- gave sworn testimony earlier this year that appears to be evasive at best, and untrue at worst, according to evidence obtained by Fox News.
    The officials are Scott Bultrowicz, who until Feb. 1 served as director of DS, and Tracy H. Mahaffey, who remains the executive director of DS. In videotaped depositions conducted this past February, Bultrowicz claimed not to know about any claims by a federal agency that DS officials have failed to follow proper procedures; and Mahaffey claimed not to know about any pending investigations into DS.
    Yet Fox News has obtained meeting notes, draft reports and other evidence that suggest both officials were aware, at the time they were deposed, of a pending investigation into DS and its operations by the State Department's Office of Inspector General (OIG). What's more, both officials had been apprised of the OIG's preliminary finding that DS did indeed fail to follow proper procedures in at least eight cases, and possibly more, because of "undue influence" and "pressure" brought to bear by senior State Department officials to halt internal investigations.
    The evidence indicates the two officials were presented with those conclusions approximately 60 days before they testified in their depositions.

    you probably need more evidence than Fox saying evidence suggests there was perjury.

    Wow River!!!!! Automatically dismiss because it comes from Fox. I saw the testimony and saw the reports from 2 months earlier, hard to manufacture that by Fox.

    Come on. Fox has been accusing everyone in the Obama administration of perjury. Doesn't mean it's all true. I'm not saying it's not, but just because Fox says it hardly means it is.

    Well, before you come to some lying scumbags defense you should find out the facts. And yes if you are in a Congressonal hearing and take the oath and flat out lie you are a scumbag. You would look no further if Media Matters had claimed this, and when you post their links I am skeptical unti;l I research further and generally find they have quoted out of context. This story go look at the video, plainly asked simple question, denied, report shows they knew 2 months earlier, no conspiracy, no out of context, really simple.
