Peter King attacks Rand Paul on NSA saying it’s a scandal when government uses information to ‘hurt people’

Republican Congressman Peter King slammed Republican Senator Rand Paul over his comments on the National Security Agency (NSA) Sunday morning, moments after Paul appeared on the network calling for an external investigation of the spy agency.

Peter_King_Donkey_Hotey“That was just a grab bag of misinformation and distortion,” Peter King, the often outspoken New York Congressman, said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.”

On Saturday, Paul called for the Supreme Court to review the constitutionality of the NSA’s surveillance programs, arguing congressional hearings and President Obama’s promise to implement new safeguards is not enough to protect the rights of Americans.

King responded after Paul reportedly echoed those ideas Sunday morning on Fox News.

“To me, a scandal is when a government agency is somehow using information to hurt people or go after them,” King said. “Whatever mistakes were made were inadvertent. If you have a 99.99% batting average, that’s better than most media people do, most politicians do.”
