  •  FWIW I think I decoded the "direct quote" claim (4+ / 0-)

    Constitution:

    No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.
    Deuteronomy 17:6 (NIV):
    On the testimony of two or three witnesses a man shall be put to death [for worshipping other gods], but no one shall be put to death on the testimony of only one witness.
    Hardly a "direct quote"; just a parallel.
