He lied for Obama so it's cool....

Obama’s intel chief gave ‘erroneous’ testimony to Congress in 2013. Today, he avoids prosecution.

Quote:
James Clapper, who served as director of national intelligence in the Obama administration, gave “clearly erroneous” testimony to Congress about the National Security Agency’s mass surveillance techniques in 2013.

As of Monday, Clapper will face no criminal charges for his testimony.

What happened?

During a March 12, 2013, hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Clapper denied the NSA was conducting mass surveillance and collecting data on millions of Americans.

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper: “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?”

“No sir,” he responded. “Not wittingly. There are cases where they could inadvertently perhaps collect [intelligence], but not wittingly.”

Of course, we now know Clapper wasn’t accurate after Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor, leaked millions of highly classified documents to show the extent of the NSA’s spying on Americans. Snowden’s stolen records proved that NSA was collecting phone data from Americans on a daily basis.

Clapper excused his inaccurate testimony in a June 2013 apology letter to Congress. He said he gave the “clearly erroneous” answer because he “simply didn’t think of” the phone data collection. He later told MSNBC he gave the “least untruthful” answer because Wyden asked a loaded question.

Despite even admitting his testimony was “erroneous,” Clapper will not face any charges for his testimony.

Scooter Libby never lied to Congress. He went to jail until pardoned. Sometime later, the witness/accuser was debunked and recanted. They never went to prison either.

James Clapper, who should not be trusted to recite his own birthdate, should face time in a comfortable Federal hotel for more than this little "mistaken statement."

Washington DC has strange rules about these things when it coms to their own.. And they make, and enforce, the laws we must obey...; or go to jail. Curious system eh?
