comment Word or expression for someone who intentionally says false statements to bring someone else down?
@Pete855217: Statements aren't made in a court of law (other than by the judge or the lawyers) except under oath. So everyone that lies in a court of law is a perjurer (that all perjurers are liars). I did not assert the converse (all liars are perjurers).
