FILE - In this April 18, 2013 file photo, National Intelligence Director James Clapper testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. The White House and key lawmakers are standing by Clapper despite his admission that he gave misleading statements to Congress on the how much the U.S. spies on its own. Clapper’s apology to lawmakers was made public the first week in July. In March he said that U.S. spies do not gather data on Americans _ something National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden revealed as false by releasing documents showing the NSA collects millions of U.S. phone records (AP Photo/J.
