Ignoring Pistole's email is the strongest possible rejection we can make. Responding to the words of a pathological liar makes us appear weak and foolish. No one in their right mind wastes time and energy engaging in dialog with a pathological liar. If we respond at all it should be with a petition asking the White House not to spam us. That's what an email from a pathological liar is: spam. We get 'em all the time from people trying to cheat us. There should be a difference in quality and value between an email from the federal government and a come-on from a scam artist.
