Of course, no charges have been filed by the GOP. Perjury is acceptable these days. Wonder how Scooter Libby is getting along these days?

DNI chief Clapper apologizes for ‘clearly erroneous’ answer to Congress on NSA data collection


WASHINGTON — National Intelligence Director James Clapper is apologizing for telling Congress earlier this year that the National Security Agency does not collect data on millions of Americans.

In a letter to Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, Clapper says his answer was “clearly erroneous.” Leaks by NSA systems analyst Edward Snowden have revealed the NSA’s sweeping data collection of U.S. phone records and some Internet traffic every day, though U.S. intelligence officials have said the programs are aimed at targeting foreigners and terrorist suspects overseas.

Clapper was asked in March if the NSA gathered “any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans.” He answered that it didn’t happen wittingly.

Yes, note the double-standard, i.e. remember what happened to Scooter Libby during the last Bush Presidency? And keep in mind it happened when the democrats took total control of congress.

Mr. Libby himself had done nothing illegal, but was asked to testify before Congress regarding what he knew (or did not know) regarding the Valerie Plame debacle (the "outed" ex-undercover CIA agent who was no longer undercover when she claimed to have been "outed"). Somewhat similar to what happened recently to Paula Deen, simply called to testify, with his incriminating statement having little to do with the proceedings for which called to court.

But Mr. Libby lied under oath about something he wasn't certain (claiming certainty). He was then sent to prison by a democrat-controlled congress, and still remains in prison today.

His sin? Perhaps little more than not claiming an illness, like Hillary Clinton, to avoid having to testify. Or perhaps, like IRS officials, not claiming the 5th Amendment.

Wes, you beat me to the comparison with Scooter Libby.

He's still in prison, while Clapper (who earlier said he was trying to provide the "least untruthful" anser) is free and clear.

We also had President Bill Clinton lie under oath, committing perjury, regarding his affair with Monica Lewinsky. Selectively enforcing laws based on politics is quickly destroying the common man's respect for the "rule of law", which has been the glue of our society.
