    Admit : To or without to

    Idon't know whether to use "to" with admit. What is the differences between these:

    He admitted all his mistakes
    He admitted to all his mistakes

    Mary admitted lying
    Mary admitted to lying

    Re: Admit : To or without to

    I believe that the function word "to" should always be included for clarity but I have seen these statements both ways.
