>> "Every instance when an extreme exaggeration or outright falsehood appears, your chances of a just outcome diminish."

"Isn't this all but stating that Jules and/or other survivors of the Family were/are making 'extreme exaggerations' or 'outright falsehoods'?"

I do not read that line as suggesting anything about Jules, but it certainly implies he thinks some ex-members have lied or exaggerated. But that is simply factual, and further it has little bearing on those who tell the truth (and they are legion).

"I'm also seeing this Chancellor quote as emanating from a preconceived mindset."

I agree with this criticism of Chancellor, but not based solely on that line or his email.
