Justin Amash: Clapper Lied Under Oath and Should Resign - VIDEO

Infowars.com | June 12, 2013

At a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing back in March, U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, “Does the NSA collect any type of data on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?”

“No, sir,” Clapper answered.

“It [the NSA] does not,” Wyden said to confirm Clapper’s answer. “Not wittingly. There are cases where they could inadvertently, perhaps, collect, but not wittingly,” said Clapper.

In response to Clapper’s now obviously false statement, U.S. House member Justin Amash (R-Mich.) made the following statement on his Facebook page:

“It now appears clear that the director of national intelligence, James Clapper, lied under oath to Congress and the American people. Members of Congress can’t make informed decisions on intelligence issues when the head of the intelligence community willfully makes false statements. Perjury is a serious crime. Mr. Clapper should resign immediately.”

read Clappers explantaion- hahaha

Read Clapper's explanation
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/11/james-clapper-nsa-s...

and don't miss the last 2 paragraphs with detail from Wyden:

In a Tuesday statement, Wyden said he had notified Clapper of his question in advance, and had given his office a chance to give a "straight answer" after the March hearing.

“So that he would be prepared to answer, I sent the question to Director Clapper’s office a day in advance. After the hearing was over my staff and I gave his office a chance to amend his answer,” Wyden said. “Now public hearings are needed to address the recent disclosures and the American people have the right to expect straight answers from the intelligence leadership to the questions asked by their representatives."
------------------------------------
Incidentally, Wyden tweeted this Clapper lie on June 6th. You guys are behind the times ;-)

Although I do take lying under oath seriously,.....

I just can't help it, but every time I hear the word or name Clapper I think of Johnny Carson and the copper clapper caper with Jack Webb.

Our congressmen need to do more than just post Facebook comments if we are serious about jail time for perjury.

I will NOT be satisfied with just his resignation.

His willful and purposeful lies to the American people WILL result in his prosecution and this is just the beginning.

Fusion Centers Access to Classified Military Intelligence

and private contractors. The extent of all of this data sharing/outsourcing to contractors is not 'new information.' Much of the info on spying practices and capabilites is readily available online.

Remember the Fusion Center revelations back in '08-09? There was much posted about it here when Ron Paul Supporters ( among other groups) were found listed as 'potential domestic terrorists' from a leaked Fusion Center report in MIssouri. Once in the huge data sharing system it is shared with Fusion Centers across the US, private contractors, NSA, DHS, FBI, CIA and a whole host of national and foreign private data mining, analysts contractors.

Important to read this COMPLETE article from 2009.

The ACLU has been very active in exposing and filing suits about it for years. Do some digging around on their site. Numerous abuses have been documented.

Where Is Peter King's Call To Prosecute To The Fullest Extent?

The tyranny is right there in front of our faces. The MSM didn't break any of the big scandals and the politicians only want to go after the whistleblowers. Maybe Obama will win another peace prize for this.

So does the NSA collect information, in violation of the

constitution and your oath? Definatly not! Ill ask again? do they collect data... response: Not wittingly.

NOT WITTINGLY

what does that mean? Does it mean Yes, NSA is collecting data but NSA collects data but NSA collects data using a third party to collect data. Now if a third party is collecting this private info is it from this country or some other?

What country?

Is this a bank gangster controled corporate entity?

To me not wittingly means that somthing happened that I didnt know about until after the fact and now that I am aware of it The activity is stopped and those who were responsible are held accountable? Including my resignation. But hey thats just me.

Not wittingly is confession that he knows it is occuring so what it means that witting the data collection occured, its actually a twisted confession!

End the Fed and the CFR

Most of these people are CFR members who are pushing their mission of a One World Government. It has to be stopped. The hardest hurdle that the CFR has is the fact that we have a very well written Constitution, and the fact that the entire population is ARMED. No other country has this combination to the degree that we do. We need to re-establish the bill of 1953.(to be added as an amendment to the Constitution.)The Bricker Amendment: declared that no treaty could be made by the United States that conflicted with the Constitution, was self-executing without the passage of separate enabling legislation through Congress, or which granted Congress legislative powers beyond those specified in the Constitution. It also limited the president's power to enter into executive agreements with foreign powers.
The Bricker Amendment was blocked through the intervention of President Eisenhower (CFR) and failed in the Senate by a single vote in 1954.

This was the opposition to RON PAUL in 2008 and why the Media tried so hard to ignore him then. They are the same organizations that own the Media and the Banks that are responsible this election season for trying so blatantly to suppress his momentum now

Any petition to prosecute Clapper

for perjury started yet? Unfortunately, I think it would amount to nothing more than being a symbolic gesture but perhaps it could be a useful way to send a clear message from the People (his boss).

Not a good LIAR

Mr. Clapper is not a very good liar, notice how he's looking downward and has a difficult time looking at Senator Wyden as he's answering (LYING).
After the Senator tells him "thank you"...he immediately sits up and resumes a normal posture.
I'm not a lying expert, but to me, when someone avoids eye contact and looks downward or away when being grilled, that's usually an indication they might be hiding something.
Perjury = Jail Time

True. To me he seems noticably unconfortable with lying.

But, lying nonetheless.

Open the doors to the Constitution!

This demonstrates just how convoluted the government's proper handling of real questions is. Clapper knows that millions of everything is scarfed up, and it's a secret. Because it's secret, he allows himself to feel he is doing the right thing by boldly spurting out a "no Sir." and then amending the No with a "not intentionally" caveat. It's pathetic the extent good people must go to, to serve with dedication in this government of ours. The congress must enact such laws to force adjustment in wrong policies that led to such a dilemma. Stop with the witch hunts and start doing legislation! It is not the civil servants, and surely not the military who carry out orders that derive from the policies embraced by the executive. It's Congress' job to force the executive into implementing policy that adheres to the Constitution. And it is the FREE press that needs to stay on top of these matters, like one sees done here on DP. The law is clear, you lie under oath, you pay the price. That one feels obligated to lie, however, is an earmark of a dictatorship.

"Perjury is a serious crime."

SEND. HIM. TO. JAIL.

Then prosecute criminals in all three branches, the major media networks, the banks, and all of the alphabet agencies. Perp walk right now.

If you start to run out of room, there are over 1 million people in prison for non-violent crime that it's about time we send back home.

Resign?

Resign? Are you shitting me! NO! He should go to prison and lose his federal pension...along with EVERYONE that knew and lied as well, which is every member of the intel committee, i.e. Feindsteen, Graham, and Boner too!

Remember the traitor scene?
That's what it feels like... it becomes PERSONAL
not just academic.
Right now... it's all academic... but,
If just a 'couple' of years of this potential Naziesque 'clamp down' came into being... and you LOST friends and family into mass camps and graves...
Your OUTRAGE against these people having colluded and lied to America's FACE would know no bounds.
Every LIAR
Every Bootlicking, smug MSM talking head
would only 'resign?'
I think not.
RP is on the right track to expose the HORRIFIC CRIME of what these people are doing... it's not just 'policy'.
It's sedition.

If this tyranny 'pops loose' for ANY length of time before being CRUSHED by the teaming MILLIONS determined to be free...
these 'colluders' and bootlickers would be GLAD
to simply spend 5 years in prison.
They will beg for it.

I agree with amash, apart

I agree with amash, apart from the resignation bit

"you mean, if i lie under oath, i just have to resign?OK!"

If you were an Actor in training!

If you were taking an acting class and the scene called for one to KNOWINGLY lie while trying DESPERATELY to look innocent, this would be the TRAINING VIDEO!!! "Class, that's how you do it!!!"

This was the opposition to RON PAUL in 2008 and why the Media tried so hard to ignore him then. They are the same organizations that own the Media and the Banks that are responsible this election season for trying so blatantly to suppress his momentum now

Maybe he should be tried for

Maybe he should be tried for treason.

Wish people would stop bandying the word TREASON around

The Treason Clause applies only to disloyal acts committed during times of war.

What he did was lie to Congress. He should be impeached from his position and given a jail sentence that will remind those in Congress, and the FBI , CIA, NSA etc, that lying to us has consequences

We are in a time of war

And it could be argued that this program is directly related to the wars we're in.

I beg to differ!

We are not in a time of war because Congress has not, as the Constitution requires, declared war.

A Constitutional, Christian conservative who voted for Ron and stands with Rand

Charge him with treason & have Obama

tell the country we are not "really" at war. Looks to me like they have put themselves in a box.

Tear His Tonsils Out!

Send him to the gallows!

No!

He shouldn't resign. He should go too PRISON!! Why even have "under Oath" if nothing happens when u lie...

Love it!

Way to go Amash!

And I agree with the other commenters --Clapper should also be prosecuted for perjury

Jesus is the saviour of the WHOLE WORLD, "As in Adam all die, so too in Christ ALL shall be made alive." (ICor.15:22) All means all. The pagan 'hell' of literal fire & eternal torment is a lie and is SPIRITUAL TERRORISM. http://www.hopebeyondhell.net

Most of all, he should

be PROSECUTED and punished. He committed a crime, did he not?

F'in A! James "the Crapper" Clapper deserves the slammer!!

F'in A! James "the Crapper" Clapper deserves the slammer!! Perjury is the MOST serious crime and is vigorously enforced in normal courts. Crapper needs to be turned into an alternative currency in the big house!
