WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—As the F.B.I. hurries to complete its supplemental background check of the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, twenty million witnesses have come forward claiming that they saw Kavanaugh lie under oath.
According to the witnesses, they can remember the place where they saw Kavanaugh lie, a hearing room in the United States Senate, and the exact date and time, this past Thursday afternoon.
Despite the striking similarity of their stories, the twenty million witnesses to Kavanaugh's mendacity said that they were having trouble getting in touch with the F.B.I., even though lying to the Senate is a federal crime and thus within the Bureau's jurisdiction.
"I called my local F.B.I. office and was told to call the Bureau's toll-free tip line," Harland Dorrinson, a resident of Toledo, Ohio, said. "I did that, but the mailbox for Kavanaugh tips was full."
Carol Foyler, a Mobile, Alabama, resident who said that she, too, witnessed Kavanaugh lie under oath, expressed frustration at the artificial deadline of the F.B.I.'s probe. "One week is not nearly enough time to interview twenty million people," she said.
In Washington, Senator Lindsey Graham furiously rejected the witnesses' version of events, arguing, "This is a classic case of he-said/twenty million said."
"If lying in the United States Senate is a crime, none of us is safe," Graham added.
"I fell in love with my country when I was a prisoner in someone else's."
