Do you think that the Romney testified to the FEC under oath that he had no involvement of any kind with Bain after 1999?

2011 Election filing
Here’s the direct quote…

In 2011, Romney, as a presidential candidate, filed a public financial disclosure form, under pain of perjury, that stated: “Mr. Romney retired from Bain Capital on February 11, 1999 to head the Salt Lake Organizing Committee. Since February 11, 1999, Mr. Romney has not had any active role with any Bain Capital entity and has not been involved in the operations of any Bain Capital entity in any way.”

There’s no evidence he played an active role. All we have is a passive role, signed some documents but was not making decisions or running the company. Although he may have retained the ability there’s no evidence he used that ability.
