Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the architect of the Patriot Act, has urged authorities to prosecute Director of National Intelligence James Clapper for lying to Congress.
The Wisconsin Republican told The Hill that the Justice Department should bring charges against Clapper for his false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March.
"Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," he said. "The only way laws are effective is if they’re enforced. If it’s a criminal offense — and I believe Mr. Clapper has committed a criminal offense — then the Justice Department ought to do its job."
The call for Clapper’s prosecution came as President Barack Obama revealed in an interview on MSNBC’s “Hardball With Chris Matthews” that he plans to introduce curbs on the National Security Agency to guard against unwarranted snooping in Americans’ private affairs.
During the intelligence hearing, Clapper was asked by Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., whether the NSA collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper replied that NSA does “not wittingly” gather information from Americans in general.
But thousands of documents leaked by NSA contractor Edward Snowden have proved that the agency collects bulk records of phone calls and Internet data on virtually every American.
Clapper has since claimed that he was attempting to give the “least untruthful” answer that would not disclose classified information about the agency’s work. He has since apologized to Dianne Feinstein, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, for his “clearly erroneous” statement to Congress.
Someone prompted me to reblog the picture of me made up as a dude, something I did one night when I got an anonymous message that simply said “you look like a man.” I figured, okay, if I’m going to look like a man, I’m going to be a fucking sexy man.
