Shocker: James Clapper Will Avoid Charges For Perjuring Himself Before Congress, As of Today

The government that enforces our laws has declared itself immune to the very laws they inflict on the commoners.

They let the statute of limitations run out on his perjury.


Former intelligence chief James Clapper is poised to avoid charges for allegedly lying to Congress after five years of apparent inaction by the Justice Department.

Clapper, director of national intelligence from 2010 to 2017, admitted giving "clearly erroneous" testimony about mass surveillance in March 2013, and offered differing explanations for why.

Two criminal statutes that cover lying to Congress have five-year statutes of limitations, establishing a Monday deadline to charge Clapper, who in retirement has emerged as a leading critic of President Trump.

Jonathan Turley had previously warned that the government was going to let one of its Palz skate, noting they had previously made every dishonest excuse for him they could think of.

The problem is not that the perjury statute is never enforced. Rather it is enforced against people without allies in government. Thus, Roger Clemens was prosecuted for untrue statements before Congress. He was not given the option of giving the "least untruthful" answer.

Another reason for the lack of prosecutions is that the perjury process is effectively rigged to protect officials accused of perjury or contempt before Congress. When an official like Clapper or Nielsen is accused of lying to Congress, Congress first has to refer a case to federal prosecutors and then the administration makes the decision whether to prosecute its own officials for contempt or perjury. The result has almost uniformly been "declinations" to even submit such cases to a grand jury. Thus, when both Republicans and Democrats accused CIA officials of lying to Congress about the torture program implemented under former president George W. Bush, not a single indictment was issued.

For Clapper, the attempt to justify his immunity from prosecution has tied officials into knots. After Clapper lied before Congress and there was a public outcry, Clapper gave his "east untruthful answer" justification. When many continued to demand a prosecution, National Intelligence general counsel Robert Litt insisted that Clapper misunderstood the question. Still later, Litt offered a third rationalization: that Clapper merely forgot about the massive surveillance system. That's right. Clapper forgot one of the largest surveillance (and unconstitutional) programs in the history of this country. Litt did not explain why Clapper himself said that he knowingly chose the "least untruthful answer." Litt added, "t was perfectly clear that he had absolutely forgotten the existence of the ... program ... We all make mistakes." Of course, this "mistake" was an alleged felony offense.

Clapper will establish a standard that will be hard to overcome in the future. He lied about a massive, unconstitutional surveillance program and then admitted that he made an "untruthful" statement. That would seem to satisfy the most particular prosecutor in submitting a case to a grand jury, but this is Washington.

When a government no longer has moral authority over its citizens, it must rely exclusively on physical coercion and force, and then things get ugly quickly.

I am thankful that Trump has managed to roll back a lot of the gotcha laws that kept the economy stagnant, but there has to be law applied to the commies to undo the transformation to banana republic that Barky achieved.

SCOTUS really needs to hear a case where they rule that if the government does not consistently attempt to enforce a law, that law is null and void. Illegals don't get prosecuted for illegal driving, then no one gets prosecuted to illegal driving. No perjury charges against some people, then no perjury charges ever.

Exactly what i was thinking - force is a two way street.

Most people these days have forgotten the most important reason that Governments are tasked with running a System of Justice which instills confidence among the population of the governed. It's because when that confidence isn't there, people don't just kick back and say "oh well that's fine then" - nope, they resolve to seek justice on their own terms, privately.

And that always gets real ugly, real fast - a lot of today's world is already living under that system.

Ugh, I watched that yesterday. CBS Sunday Show is usually not too bad politically - they get some obligatory jabs in, but usually content to do their New Yorky arts stuff, a little folksy middle America stuff, some fancy foreign intellectual or celebrity, etc. But yesterday they had that guy AND a story on Joan Baez, lovingly tracing her civil rights era activism to present day recording studio interview about now Trump-tyranny themed songs. Not Subtle at all, CBS.

Self-identifying idiot.

122 Speaking of refusing to prosecute clearly guilty scumbags, another Islamic pedo gang has come to light. This time it's Telford, Shropshire, England.

Apparently street pastors have been out and about in the evenings doing the boring work police find beneath them, like asking 11 year old girls what they're doing with 30 year old men at a club.

They've been handing lists of these girls names to local plod. The PCs couldn't be arsed to do their job though, and now they're reporting about 1,000 young girls were being passed around as prostitutes among Islamic males.

How does a district that went for Trump by 20 points even come close?

Maybe the Republican running is not the greatest and maybe the Democrat is a skilled liar pretending to be a moderate, but we've got big problems if we can't win a district like that.

Obviously though it both went for Trump and the Republican that was previously representing it.

In 2016, a Democrat didn't even make it on the ballot.

The last time it was even contested was 2012, and the Republican won by nearly 2 to 1 despite Obama winning the state.

The politicians refuse to listen. The press, in the mainstream, buries and misreports...esp. BBC. They are govt. funded after all. If Churchill was alive, he'd be considered an Islamphobe.

They've evn had warnings given to Parliment from a UN guy. Even Merkel a few years back said Multiculturism was a failure and only brought about Parallel societies.

So they are cowering fools to intolerance and violence. Sacrificing children and women.

I cannot forget that person from the Netherlands who told me, "you watch, Amercia will sacrifice herself on the altar of Islam". It scares the shit outta me. B/c I've watched Europe do so. And b/c our citizens have become so stupid.

See, I keep seeing this...the organizing and putting money into the Left agenda. I see nothing similar on the right, at all. I don't understand it. I make calls and do stuff, but I'm one raindrop against a Tsunami, and honestly, I've begun to ask myself why I bother.

So when people are surprised we are losing, or losing seats in Trump's districts, I don't understand the surprise.

I feel like a sitting duck. Once Trump is gone, the 4 or 8 years will be erased. Maybe I'm being Debbie Downer, but I can't shake it. I hope against hope I'm wrong. But nothing in the last year says I am. Bannon was gonna lead the charge, but burned out and let his ego do him in. Nobody else has stepped up.
