Abrams: “Sir it’s impossible to provide a yes or no answer to that question because the exact match is not simply the question of what was put on the form.

And so absent the second part of the process, it is an impossibility to give a truthful answer to the question presented.” Collins: “But the truthful answer, and you are still as good as a I remember you. The issue here is that there was not.” (Committee On The Judiciary, U.S. House Of Representatives, Hearing, Washington, D.C., 6/25/19)
