The Unwritten Exception

Apparently the crime of lying to Congress has an unwritten exception that the law doesn't apply to the Director of the NSA.

Last June, I wrote a similar post calling for the prosecution of James Clapper for his lies to Congress about the surveillance program. At the end of the post, I noted that if Clapper is not prosecuted "why should we believe any of this stuff?" The link behind the words "any of this stuff" was an article about Mr. Alexander's claim that the surveillance has stopped "over 50" terrorists plots--the very testimony that Mr. Alexander now admits was not truthful.
