"Director of National Intelligence James Clapper issued a statement Wednesday opposing an amendment to curb the National Security Agency’s surveillance activities, the latest push from the Obama administration to sway lawmakers ahead of a crucial vote.
“I join others who caution that acting in haste to defund the FISA Business Records program risks dismantling an important intelligence tool,” Clapper said." The Hill
Let us remember that Lieutenant General James Clapper USAF (ret.) admitted to having lied under oath to the US Senate in the matter of this program. This is the felony crime of perjury. He will not be prosecuted because he slavishly supports the Obama Administration. Now this same man has the gall the show his face in the House of Representative to lobby for continuation of the program for which he lied.
Jim Clapper has always wanted to be a four star general. His partner in perjury, General Keith Alexander is a four star general. Clapper must think this is unfair. Perhaps that is why he is willing to disgrace himself. pl
