Why is Clapper not in prison?

So the CIA was hacking into computers used by members of Congress and their committees, especially the Senate Intelligence Committee. Note that the Democrats control the Senate and therefore the SIC. And Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein of the committee is hopping mad about it, as she should be.

But consider this:

For instance, intelligence chief James Clapper was asked a year ago in a Senate hearing whether the NSA collects "any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans." He said no, knowing that the statement was false. "Not wittingly," he said. "There are cases where they could inadvertently perhaps collect, but not wittingly." 
It was a lie.
So Clapper lied to Congress under oath. He knew he was lying. He did so with open eyes. That's called perjury. It is a federal offense. So why is Clapper not in prison?

Oh, you know that answer.
