House Republicans are demanding an immediate investigation of the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, for lying to Congress in this exchange.:
Sen. Ron Wyden asked Clapper whether the National Security Agency (NSA) collected "any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?"
Clapper answered, "No, sir."
Wyden: "It does not?"
Clapper: "Not wittingly. There are cases where they could inadvertently perhaps collect, but not wittingly."
OutFront: Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, he fought to defend NSA surveillance tactics during the Bush administration.
