How Soon Will Clapper be Indicted for Perjury?

Will anyone find the spine to finally hold a top Democrat accountable for his criminality? You can bet if it was a Republican who lied under oath, the indictment would be swift and merciless.

The GOP has no interest in punishing one of their fellow DC fraternity
brothers with real punishment. The GOP just want to use it as a campaign
tool.

He will never be indicted for anything. He has the goods on everyone.

With McConnell and Boehner in charge? Are you kidding me? These guys are the paragon of the go-along-to-get-along gang.

I'm guessing somewhere around the year 2075 the Republicans should have it together enough to do something.

To the democrats there is nothing wrong with lying, as a matter of fact, being a good liar is virtue in the party of evil.

What is becoming increasingly obvious, it is time for a new second party. Although there was plenty of opportunity for it, the current ‘second’ party did not put up a sufficient fight against the Obama juggernaut. I have been against third party movements, but my opposition to that is now exhausted.

Clapper was a 3 star general. I guarantee you that he threw the book at anyone who lied to him.

“How Soon Will Clapper be Indicted for Perjury?”

Considering that a fair number HERE have been convinced that it is SNOWDEN that is the traitor, I’m expecting Ace McCain or LindsayG to issue a statement praising Clapper’s “honesty”.

All. They can never be trusted again because

Unfortunately, perjury is a *very* difficult crime to prove, because you don’t just need to prove that the statement was false, you need to prove that the person “willfully” made a statement which he “does not believe to be true.” Proving that level of state of mind is a very tall order, which is why many prosecutors shy away from bringing perjury charges in all but the most blatant cases (e.g., where a witness subsequently confesses to intentionally committing perjury).

How Soon Will Clapper be Indicted for Perjury?

How soon will Sandy "Pants" Berger be charged with stealing from the national archives on Clinton's behalf?

How soon will 'toon be held accountable for sexually assaulting Juanita Broderick?

How soon will LBJ be charged as an accessory to murder in the Billy Sol Estes case?

How soon will FDR be exposed for his role in prolonging the Great Depression?

Fellow FReepers, this could be a defining moment! We must push everyone of our representatives to do EXACTLY what that creep in the EPA wanted to do.

Remember, he was calling for a Roman type Crucifixion of a few so others would get the message?

Well we now have known self avowed criminals in the various alphabet agencies and we need a few legal Crucifixions to begin to ferret out the communist, progressive, liberal vermin from every government agency.

Clapper is a Reublican if he’s anything.

His first appointed job was under the Bush Administration, and his only recorded campaign contributions were to to the Dole Presidential Campaign in 1996, and to Senator John Warner (R-VA).

As Clapper was no doubt advised, his clarification has cleared him of any potential perjury charge. In legal terms, he has “purged” himself of the false statement.

Never. The GOPe that runs Congress is comprised of compromised, impotent pussies.

Clapper will never be indicted.

Holder will never be forced to resign.

obama will never be impeached.

Was he under oath? Most of the really high government officials testify with out taking an oath. Congress makes exception for officials they don’t true (Holder for example).

He’s a “white boy”, so there’s actually a chance he will be indicted.

It is not perjury if when you told the lie you had no idea that someone would divulge information that would make it a lie.

“...With McConnell and Boehner in charge? Are you kidding me? These guys are the paragon of the go-along-to-get-along gang...”


The Repub Party needs to be replaced with a conservative, pro-American, pro-Constitution party that is willing to be the OPPOSITION PARTY and fight the Fascist Rats who are working hard to destroy America and its core principles. The sad part is that the American electorate apparently has not been hurt enough yet and lacks the forward thinking necessary to motivate such an effort NOW. I continue to hope.

The sad part is that the enemedia has convinced the American electorate that people who actually believe things should be done like the law says (or the law be changed)--from the Constitution on down, are 'right wing extremist whackos', and not the mainstream. Even the Congress (getting rich off insider tips and perks no matter which side of the aisle) likes the arrangement, because it stifles effective opposition to the very profitable status quo.

......HOLD CLAPPER ACCOUNTABLE NOW!........

The Scumbag Wyden set him up.

Wyden, who has a top secret clearance, and was told all about the program, was sworn to secrecy, and was too chicken to disclose the program.

Clapper too has top secret clearance, and was also sworn to secrecy about the program, was asked the question by the Scumbag in open testimony.

Clapper had a choice of two responses:

1. say yes, and blow the whole program to the public, and go to jail for exposing a “top secret” program that he was sworn to keep secret.

2. Lie and say no

Scumbag Wyden even told Clapper that he was going to set him up the day before, forcing Clapper to make a reasoned choice in his next day testimony.

Scumbag Wyden (D, OR) should be held in contempt!

Yes, stupidity and ignorance are major problems. One of the reasons the radical left is working so hard to get total control over the education system and make it illegal for you to take control of the education of your own children. It is what Marxists do.

Republicans in the US House don’t have the armed muscle to hold the racist pig Holder accountable.

The people that would arrest the racist Holder for treason work for the Justice Department controlled by Holder.

It’s not a matter of spine, it’s about who or what hold the guns.

Holder and obuma can’t be held accountable because the US House has no armed force to go after these commies.

The last time that the US House had the armed muscle to challenge the executive branch was when Rep. Stevens stripped away the commander in chief authority from President Johnson in 1867. It was called the Reconstruction Act.
