    It matters little what someone swears an oath upon, if they have no intention of keeping it. “… to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States” indeed! If he was actually swearing a truth oath, it would be much more along the lines of “to pervert, reject, and suspend the Constitution of the United States.”
