Flashback: Obama Intel Chief Tells Congress NSA Does Not Collect Information on Americans (Video)

At a March 2013 hearing, Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the Senate Intelligence Committee the United States government does not “wittingly” collect information on Americans.

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, asked Clapper if the NSA collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper answered that no the NSA does not at least not wittingly collect info on American.
It looks like this was a lie.
