But is it actual certainty?

Taoiseach Bertie Ahern today refuting circumstantial evidence that he had received an undisclosed donation of $45,000 when he was Minister for Finance and expecting to be soon in the position that he now holds --

That's one of those denials that could end up meaning something quite different than it seems to mean. After all, morality is in the eye of the beholder.
