The Thank You Ed Snowden campaign was initiated by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF).

The activists’ signs read: “Clapper Lied,” “Snowden Told the Truth,” “Fire Clapper, Pardon Snowden” and “NSA Broke the Law.” Each was signed “”

When Clapper entered the hearing room in the Senate Dirksen Building at 10:00 a.m. this morning, he was greeted by a gaggle of photographers and an activist prominently holding the sign right behind him that read "Clapper Lied!"

People all over the country are demanding that Clapper be immediately fired for his perjured testimony before Congress on March 12, 2013, when he denied under oath that the government was secretly collecting data on the American people.

Snowden’s revelations forced Clapper to retract his sworn testimony

Clapper has admitted now -- but only after whistleblower Edward Snowden courageously revealed the existence of the spying program -- that he did not tell the truth in his sworn testimony before Congress.

N&S-Congress pushed the perjury of baseball players very hard--this deserves an even harder push. Thanks Phyllis.
