DNI Clapper Letter on Misunderstandings Arising from his March 12th Appearance Before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
Tuesday, July 02, 2013
Dear Madam Chairman: Because of the charged rhetoric and heated controversy prompted by my response to a question Senator Ron Wyden asked me last March 12th during an unclassified threat assessment hearing before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, I am using this direct means of communication with you to set the record straight...

Congress represents the people. He lied to congress, therefore he lied to the American people, of which, I am a member.
I, as a member of the American people, do not accept his apology. I will demand his resignation and demand that he surrender to federal law enforcement officials, and unequivocally confess guilt in the matter of perjury.
Well if he apologized, it’s OK now I guess. /sarc
...give it two weeks - another rock shattering scandal will be spewed forth from the Obama Administration and everyone will forget this one...
Well, isn’t that special...
Sen. widen had given Clapper the question he was going to ask him 24 hours in advance.
Clapper could have answered honestly by requesting a closed session.
He lied instead and got caught.
So, when will we know when is telling the truth in the future?
I was wondering this last night...
What a weak-kneed people Americans have become.
In some ways I admire Egypt’s young people, in the streets, day and night, demanding their government not just change; but their president resign.
Oh I have thought about the pitfalls of something like that happening here and in some ways we have not yet stewed enough for it to boil over. In America’s case though, it will still be a progressive/socialist left verses liberty, even though the mob will shout for freedom & democracy; never realizing democracy is the language of their dictators.
why isnt he in prison?????
Congress will not care.
THEY are liars, and love liars like Obama.
Fire him, fine him and ban him for life from federal employment and benefits. Don’t let them benefit from their lies. Make an example of him.
Scooter Life by should sue their a$$es off.
Of course, it could be simply that Clapper is incompetent.
Remember several years ago, when Diane Sawyer asked him in an interview what he thought about the recent London terror plot that had been foiled, which was all over the news at the time, and he had no clue what she was talking about?
Apology will be accepted upon resignation.
And why is he not in jail?
How will we know that the NSA has gone full J. Edgar and blackmailed all of the cogressional leadership in both parties and anyone of importance in the judicial and executive branches...? By the complete and total lack of consequences for that clown clapper. Does it need to be anymore obvious than this? Anyone of us lumpen get hauled infront of a congressional committee and just make a mistake in an answer and we’d get felony convictions. This guy just gets to say he’s sorry.
So, why isn’t a marshall or a sergeant at arms frog-marching him off to jail?
Last time I looked, that was a crime. Any chance this guy actually takes the consequences of his actions?
Sorry...just kidding..we know that consequences are only apply to conservatives.
