    Subpoena Clapper to appear under penalty of being held in contempt of Congress, then order him to testify under oath. They can do that on matters of oversight.

      Walk in, sit down, take oath, invoke Fifth, stand up, walk out.  End of hearing.

        without a shitstorm starting up? At the very least, it would strain relations between the Senate Democrats and the White House.

        The Fifth is a defense in the court of law - not so much in the court of public opinion.
