No, not at all. But if he did know and allowed it, he is equally guilty because he could have stopped it when he learned of it. At that point he would merely be responsible for the misdeed of those down the chain. That would apply to any structure that one had control in.

Deuce, I must respectfully disagree. There IS a lot of smoke around "this administration". It does not however come from any attempt at hiding stuff by the Administration, rather it comes from the arsonists lolling about in the House of Representatives who apparently never learned how to actually start a fire when they were in the Boy Scouts. It seems to come from a lack of knowledge about the combustibility of the items they are trying to set alight. Stuff don't burn but it does give off a lot of smoke when ignition is attempted - so they start to scream about the huge fires that are starting up when really all they have is a bunch of smoke that does little more than draw attention to their foolishness.
