Shouldn't she fire herself then?

As part of the (allegedly) real reason for firing Lynn was that he directly misled here.

But she then admits to a tweet stating that the entire New York Times article was false, ie a misleading, innacurate and false statement made by her.

Also, is there any real difference between what the US would call "soft money" and what,elsewhere in the world, they call it bribery eg the IOC or FIFA officials? Pursued as a criminal matter, often with large fines to the US coffers.*

They simply both buy the desired outcome.

*In a sense, extortion. If you want to do any more business in the US pay up now, or else.
