Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) unloaded on fellow Republican lawmaker Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) Sunday, accusing him of providing “a grab bag of misinformation and distortion” on the National Security Agency’s top-secret surveillance programs.

In an appearance earlier on “Fox News Sunday,” Paul accused the spy agency of “looking at billions of phone calls every day” and said the constitutionality of the programs should be evaluated by the Supreme Court.

But King, a defender of the surveillance program, said “this whole tone of ‘snooping’ and ‘spying’ that we use is horrible, I think — a distortion, a smear, a slander.”
