"I responded in what I thought was the most truthful, or least untruthful, manner by saying 'no,'" Clapper told NBC News on Sunday.

Berry Bonds (7 years) and Roger Clemens (5 years) investigation and trials for being "untruthful" about taking enhancement drugs or not!

Goberment official, "nothing to see hear peeps, move along!"
