Peter King Goes Nuts!
- A majority of Congressional Republicans have locked arms with Comrade Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to protect and fund the 1984 Police Surveillance State and the elimination of the Bill of Rights.
There is a civil war in America that has trashed party lines. Both liberals and conservatives have joined each side in a tug of war to see who wins: The Police State or the Bill of Rights.
GOP Rep. Peter King said fellow Republican Sen. Rand Paul owes the nation’s top intelligence official an apology after saying he should resign for “lying” to a Senate committee about a controversial surveillance program.
The New York congressman also said that Paul’s comparison of National Intelligence Director James Clapper to NSA leaker Edward Snowden is “absolutely disgraceful.”
“For Senator Paul to compare that patriot, General Clapper, with someone like Snowden, who is a traitor, who has put American lives at risk – Senator Paul should be ashamed of himself,” King said Thursday on CNN’s “The Situation Room,” reports CNN.
"It's an absolute disgrace. He disgraced his office and he owes General Clapper an apology immediately."
Paul told CNN on Wednesday that public congressional testimony by Clapper last March denying the existence of a sweeping electronic data collection program at the National Security Agency had done more to damage the credibility of the intelligence community than the leaks by Snowden that blew the whistle on the spying initiative.
Clapper apologized to the Senate committee for giving members a "clearly erroneous" answer about the surveillance programs.
In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday, seven Republican Senators said Clapper's "willful lie under oath fuels the unhealthy cynicism and distrust that citizens feel toward their government" and compromises Congressional oversight functions.
