Representative Peter King (R-KY) lashed out at fellow Republican Rand Paul on Sunday over National Security Agency (NSA) leaker Edward Snowden.
King said on Fox News the United States should take whatever action necessary to extradite Snowden to the United States.
“I think it is important for the American people to realize that this guy is a traitor, a defector, he’s not a hero,” the congressman added. “And I heard Senator Rand Paul this morning actually compared Snowden to General Clapper. What’s happened to our country? This is a traitor, and for anyone to be comparing him to a U.S. military hero is absolutely disgraceful.”
