Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, wants Director of National Intelligence James Clapper prosecuted for lying before a Senate Intelligence hearing last March as reported by Brendan Sasso for The Hill:
During that hearing, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper whether the National Security Agency (NSA) collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper insisted that the NSA does not -- or at least does "not wittingly" -- collect information on Americans in bulk. After documents leaked by Edward Snowden revealed that the NSA collects records on virtually all U.S. phone calls, Clapper apologized for the misleading comment. The intelligence director said he tried to give the "least untruthful" answer he could without revealing classified information.
Doesn't Representative Sensenbrenner know that the criminal laws are enforced only against the little people? Silly Congressman.
Ironically, by shaking the people's confidence in the credibility of their governing institutions, Director Clapper has done more damage to the country than any violent terrorist.
