Clapper

In light of recent news I was reading wiki to brief myself up on what was the Clapper's problem with congress was... He lied a little under oath, it turns out. They asked him if NSA collects any data on Americans and he said no, when later it turned out they collected a few millions phone data (not conversations, just numbers and times and stuff)

What interested me the most, is my congressman Justin Amash got a piece in the scandal:

"On June 12, 2013, Representative Justin Amash became the first congressman to openly accuse Director Clapper of criminal perjury, calling for his resignation. In a series of tweets he stated: “It now appears clear that the director of national intelligence, James Clapper, lied under oath to Congress and the American people,” and “Perjury is a serious crime ... [and] Clapper should resign immediately,”[38] U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said "The director of national intelligence, in March, did directly lie to Congress, which is against the law."[39] Paul later suggested that Clapper might deserve prison time for his testimony.[40]"

You know what we've heard from mr Amash when half of the trump's swamp lied to the congress? Absolutely nothing. That's rebublicans for you.
