Rand Paul: Clapper lied to Congress

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Tuesday that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper lied to Congress during a March hearing.

"What I'm saying is that the Director of National Intelligence, in March, did directly lie to Congress, which is against the law," Paul said on CNN, according to a transcript. "He said that they were not collecting any data on American citizens."
