how to lie: 

1. tell a small fib, instead of the bigger story you could have told. 


2. make such a huge, bigly claim that NO ONE would think you had the chutzhpah to lie about that, and therefore not challenge you...

concerns about the honour of the court & authority include:

not retracting rulings when a new witness emerges. 

But, for some, it's fine to allow known forgeries to be subs for lost documents. 

Because a small lie is credible if a bigger lie could have been told.
