    He Lied to his superiors (1+ / 0-)
    He outright lied to the House Democratic Leadership.

    Not a crime. But if I lie to my bosses, and then get caught, I'm going to be fired.

    They aren't superior to anybody.

      I mean technically, they don't have a normal employer-employee relationship. But in the function of the House, lying to the leadership is going to earn you a massive loss of any kind of support or backing. To their eyes, he is completely untrustworthy as a continuing member of the Democratic Caucus. Not illegal. Just really, really stupid.
