House panel accuses James Clapper of ‘inconsistent testimony’ in Russia probe
Washington Examiner ^

The House Intelligence Committee's report on Russian activities during the 2016 election accuses former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper of providing “inconsistent testimony” about his contact with the media.

Clapper, now a CNN analyst, allegedly changed his story about his interactions with journalists about an opposition research dossier on then-President-elect Trump.

The former spy chief initially said he did not speak with journalists about a secret intelligence community assessment containing the information, before later admitting he discussed the dossier with CNN reporter Jake Tapper and possibly others, the report said.

“I’d like to see that POS in jail.”

Don’t forget that Muslim a$$hole Brennan! The two of them need to be sharing a cell. Clapper could be one of Brennan’s 72 virgins!

...'inconsistent testimony’

Is that what would be called 'lying under oath' if done by a normal everyday citizen and NOT some creepy 'elite' like Clapper Claptrap?

Seriously, this is not inconsistent, it's a lie.

Chris Plante on WMAL really went off on Brennan this morning. He said he had an immediate dislike of the creep as soon as he first saw him. I have the same feeling. Something about his face just makes my skin crawl.

If I am ever hauled into court a charged with lying, which would be improbable as I always am truthful, I will use the clapper defense: I may have been inconsistant!

Is that anything like "lack of candor" (which was so memorably used to describe the contradictory and/or intentionally false or deceptive statements repeatedly made by former FBI number two Andrew McCabe)?

Add that to the list of circumlocutions that have twisted fedgov apparatchiks into knots when trying to describe standard Obamunist behavior without calling it what it is, namely 'lying', 'perjury', 'false testimony', etc..
