The Clapper! Sunday’s comic

Wisconsin Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner along with Darrell Issa, Trent Franks, Blake Farenthold, Trey Gowdy, Raul Labrador and Ted Poe sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. urging an investigation of the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, for lying to Congress while testifying before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in March of 2013.

At a March 12, 2013 Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing, Director Clapper was asked if, “the NSA collected any type of data at all on millions of hundreds of millions of Americans” to which he responded with, “No, Sir.” Four months later, in June 2013, after the Snowden leaks publicly exposed Clapper’s testimony as false, Clapper finally retracted his remarks and wrote, “My response was clearly erroneous, for which I apologize.”

“Director Clapper’s willful lie under oath fuels the unhealthy cynicism and distrust that citizens feel toward their government and undermines Congress’s ability to perform its Constitutional function,” the Members write in their letter to Holder. “There are differences of opinion about the propriety of the NSA’s data collection programs. There can be no disagreement, however, on the basic premise that congressional witnesses must answer truthfully.”

  1. Truly hilarious – I haven’t stopped laughing yet.

    Truly unsettling and true – I haven’t stopped crying yet.

    God bless America.

  2. He just fits right into this administration and the democrat party as well as McCain and Flake do.
    Lying seems to come naturally when a person has been in DC too long.

  3. Would he have retracted his lie if he were not exposed? Absolutely not. Prosecute him and then go after the liar-in-chief, the supreme fibber, the prevaricator who would be king.
