James Clapper Apologizes To Congress For Lying Under Oath About The NSA Spying Scandal (Prism)

…Also Known As Perjury

James Clapper, Director Of National Intelligence, looking like he needs a bran muffin

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper apologized to Congress for lying under oath on April 18, 2013 about his NSA spying on Americans. He was forced to do so, as weeks after his deceitful appearance in Congress, brave whistle blower Edward Snowden released hard evidence of the NSA illegally spying on millions of Americans. It also confirmed what I have been writing online for several years regarding the FBI and NSA secretly spying on Americans in criminal violation of the Constitution.

The spying has disrupted a number of lives. I was made aware of the unlawful conduct when they began illegally spying on me, most noticeably in 2005, after I went to the FBI and was interviewed by them twice, formally complaining about Madonna and her private eye Anthony Pellicano, a member of the mob, who was arrested four months later on the very things I complained of verbally and in writing.

After the first tips I gave the FBI worked out, they began illegally spying on me for tips in cases, without my consent, by secretly engaging unlawful wiretaps on my phone lines, later confirmed by three separate telephone technicians. They also began obtaining copies of all my private emails and unpublished columns containing exclusives they sought to use first.

The problem was compounded by the fact I have connections in political and entertainment industry circles. Items privately and lawfully discussed over the phone and or by email with them, were being illegally intercepted by the eavesdropping FBI and NSA and utilized to start cases against people, whose criminal activity we privately denounced.

Read about it here, regarding people and companies I privately discussed over the phone and by email with others, who mysteriously started getting raided by the FBI shortly after. When it happens over a dozen times (raids and arrests of those privately spoken about over the phone and via email) and telephone technicians confirm the government is wiretapping one’s phones, you pretty much figure out that’s what they’re doing – illegally turning you into an informant without your knowledge or consent. Congress never gave them the authority to do that.

Under the Constitution, as a private citizen, I am allowed to go public with claims of government wrongdoing, such as having my privacy invaded via unconstitutional spying, as I have experienced it. I don’t work for the government, never have. Therefore, in publishing on my sites the extent of their illegal spying, no contract, oath or trust was allegedly betrayed in any fashion, except them betraying my own as a victim of crime they decided to violate as well in trying to turn me into an informant/snitch without my knowledge or consent.

Imagine that, they tried to turn me into a snitch. As far as I’m concerned, I’m too cute for that. I have never worked for any world government, but if I ever do, it will be in a formal capacity, up front in a desk job. I’m not into that cloak and dagger crap the FBI so relishes.

Therefore, I'm thankful to Edward Snowden. He has via data and files, straight from the NSA, confirmed what I have stated online for years. The American people need to know what has happened to civil liberties in the nation at the hands of an overreaching, power grabbing administration that refuses to rein in its unconstitutional behavior. America is now a police state and innocent people are being treated like criminals in being spied on and classed as things they are not, terrorists or spies, in order for some in power to get away with this invasive spying illegality before Congress.

I only regret that Snowden didn’t pass the files to Wikileaks and remained anonymous, as he doesn’t deserve what the administration is trying to do to his life, all because they broke the law and didn’t want the public to find out. If he mysteriously dies or is outright killed, it is my hope every single one of you involved, from the bottom to the top in Washington, gets kicked out of office. And don’t think it can’t happen regarding Snowden. President Obama enacted a new rule that he can kill Americans on U.S. soil or in the international community and not face prosecution.


National Intelligence Director Apologizes for Lying to Congress

Director Clapper says a response to the Intelligence Committee in March was 'clearly erroneous'

July 2, 2013 - Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee April 18, 2013. Clapper has apologized for lying to the committee during testimony. The director of National Intelligence apologized in June to the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee for lying during a hearing, according to a letter published on the DNI website on Tuesday.

Director James Clapper appeared before the committee in March, where Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., asked him specifically if NSA spies on millions of Americans. Clapper answered, "No." Since then, Edward Snowden reportedly leaked government documents that unveiled a secretive government program that did precisely what Wyden suggested in collecting meta data for cell phone and internet records of hundreds of millions of Americans.

James Clapper is still lying to America

Monday, Jul 1, 2013 12:02 PM EST - A smoking gun shows Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is a big liar -- and it's not the first time. "James Clapper Is Still Lying": That would be a more honest headline for yesterday’s big Washington Post article about the director of national intelligence’s letter to the U.S. Senate.

Clapper, you may recall, unequivocally said "no, sir" in response to Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., asking him: "Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?" Clapper’s response was shown to be a lie by Snowden’s disclosures, as well as by reports from the Guardian, the Washington Post, the Associated Press and Bloomberg News (among others). This is particularly significant, considering lying before Congress prevents the legislative branch from performing oversight and is therefore a felony.
