This is weird and terrifying. No less than Karl Rove was allowed to change his statement about a far more severe case—made *under oath*—four times. McTiernan was not sworn in, the interview was over the phone, and if the statements about jet lag and medication are true, not fully competent at that point in time. There’s also the issue that a phone ID cannot possibly be good enough—I wouldn’t be surprised if McTiernan thought it was a tabloid reporter lying, or something. Even if Dan Saunders wasn’t sent out by the Scagnetti agency to those two films—(and congrats to Buzzfeed for a very important find) he was clearly an actor, and he clearly did not breakthrough in any meaningful sense. Prosecutorial overreach, indeed.
