I’ve got nothing to hide but the truth

Perhaps this malaphor should be categorized as a “freudian slip malaphor”, as it was uttered by a person under oath.   It combines the phrase “I have nothing to hide” and the end of the witness oath in which one swears to tell the truth, the whole truth and “nothing but the truth.”  It might also apply to politicians these days.  Thanks to John Costello for sending this beauty in!
