Congressman Says Clapper Lied to Congress, Should Resign

In a Facebook status update Wednesday morning, Libertarian U.S. Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan called upon Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. to resign after willfully making false statements to Congress while under oath.

RepJustinAmash FB Page 6-12-13“It now appears clear that the director of national intelligence, James Clapper, lied under oath to Congress and the American people,” Representative Amash wrote. “Members of Congress can’t make informed decisions on intelligence issues when the head of the intelligence community willfully makes false statements. Perjury is a serious crime. Mr. Clapper should resign immediately.”

In my recently-released book, THE CLAPPER MEMO, I do not accuse DNI Clapper of lying about the National Security Agency’s domestic surveillance, data collection or any other activities. Instead, I connect the dots between a memo Clapper issued in 2007 and hundreds of American and Coalition Forces casualties resulting from “Green-on-Blue” (a.k.a., “Insider”) attacks waged by so-called Afghan “allies” wearing the uniforms of their country.

The culmination of an exhaustive four-year investigation, THE CLAPPER MEMO reveals never-before-published details about an unconventional war that’s been raging silently for more than 40 years, shows no signs of easing, and impacts Americans around the world.

The book, which has garnered endorsements from several high-profile Americans, is available in paperback and ebook versions at Amazon.
