James Clapper and John Brennan lied to Congressional Intelligence committee leaders. That is very bad-- bad enough that they should be fired,
And their agencies spied on the members of congress and then they denied it. That's really bad-- bad enough that they should be fired, and, combining it with lying to congress, they should be prosecuted and jailed.
But Obama says he's okay with. He trusts Clapper and Brennan.
The DOJ, in a very not-separate way, led by worst Attorney General in US history Eric Holder, is doing nothing-- colluding with Obama.
The way I see it, the lying and spying done under the leadership of Brennan and Clapper was done for Obama. That should put him in the crosshairs of investigations and accusations by congress and the DOJ.
Obama got caught. He's covering for the criminals who lied and spied for him. Obama should not be able to protect Clapper and Brennan. Congress should be screaming bi-partisan bloody murder.
Even if the spying was not done specifically for Obama, it was totally illegal and it is outrageous, and incredible hubris on the President's part to believe that it is okay for him to give these high level government officials a pass.
Many would say that he and the members of congress have no choice. The spying done on them has worked and they must back down because they are being blackmailed. That's certainly believable. This is a dangerous situation that must be corrected. Hearings by the Senate Select Intelligence Committee, aimed at terminating the jobs and exploring penitentiary possibilities for Clapper and Brennan would be a good first step. Failure to do so would show just how derelict, at best, or maliciously part of the conspiracy to allow un-restrained spy agency abuses Dianne Feinstein is.
