Whistleblower Group Requests Attorney General Holder to Open Criminal Investigation of DNI James Clapper for False Statements to Congress
Request Based on Credible Evidence of Illegal
Conduct Raised by Whistleblower Edward Snowden
Washington, D.C. June 13, 2013. Attorneys at the National Whistleblower Legal Defense and Education Fund (“NWLDEF”) sent a letter to United States Attorney General Eric Holder requesting that he open a formal investigation into criminal conduct by the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and others. The request is based in part on the allegations raised by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden indicating that the DNI lied in testimony to Congress.
Kohn added, “No person may give false statements to the U.S. Senate, even under the guise of National Security. The title of Director of National Intelligence does not enable General Clapper to create a 'truth-free zone' when he testifies under oath before Congress.”
