Peter King: NSA should monitor Congress too in case members are talking to Al Qaeda

King objected to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) who objected to the NSA monitoring the communications of elected representatives.

“I think members of Congress should be treated the same as everyone else,” King said. “If a member of Congress is talking to an Al Qaeda leader in Iraq or Afghanistan, why should that member of Congress be any different from any person on the street?”

He added that Sanders was attempting to imply that the NSA is “spying” on Congress. “They’re not spying on anyone,” he added.
