I’m not always in agreement with Rand Paul and the choices he makes….
Like voting against President Trump’s emergency declaration!
What was that Rand?
I know he tried to explain it away, but it made no sense.
But other times it seems like Rand really gets it.
This is one of those times as he’s now getting very vocal about investigating the Obama Administration and its key officials!
First, he called out Brennan by name, putting him squarely in his investigative sights:
Then he really upped the ante, going directly to Obama himself.
Take a look:
Here's more, from Breitbart:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Breitbart News exclusively on Tuesday that President Donald Trump told senators at the weekly GOP luncheon that he backs his call for an investigation into the origins of the Russia scandal “hoax” that Trump has now been cleared of by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
“The president was at lunch today and he voiced his support for investigating the people who concocted this hoax,” Paul told Breitbart News. “He didn’t use the word hoax, those are my words, but I think we should get to the bottom of this and he believes we should get to the bottom of this because this should never happen to another president. He feels that it’s damaging to the country, damaging to the ability to lead the country, that we basically—somebody within the Obama administration, within the DOJ and the FBI, basically concocted an investigation, trumped it up to be something that it wasn’t and then we’ve gone through two years of the country being stalled because of this fake investigation.”
The Hill added this:
Republicans are setting their sights on top Obama-era officials as they plan their own probe into the 2016 election.
Eager to move on from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference and the Trump campaign, GOP senators are gearing up to investigate the investigators. The idea is gaining traction with the Republican caucus, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.).
Mueller’s report hasn’t been released yet, but Republicans have seized on a four-page letter from Attorney General William Barr that summarized key conclusions of the two-year probe, including that Mueller "did not establish" that President Trump or members of his campaign coordinated or colluded with Moscow in its election interference.
"Republicans believe that the FBI and [Department of Justice] — the top people — took the law in their own hands because they wanted [Hillary] Clinton to win and Trump to lose," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said during an interview with Fox News’s Neil Cavuto as part of a media blitz discussing his plans for an investigation.
He said that he will be looking at "abuse" of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant application process and the counterintelligence operation into Trump’s campaign, adding that "there will be a lot of inquiry as to how this all happened."
GOP senators are already naming former officials who would be at the top of their lists to question, including former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
"The Judiciary Committee has primary jurisdiction and doing oversight of the Department of Justice and the FBI, and so that ... is something we need to do. Trying to find out how this thing got off the rails and hopefully prevent it from happening again," said Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), a member of the Judiciary Committee.
Cornyn rattled off a list of Obama-era officials he would want to speak with, including Lynch, former CIA Director John Brennan, and former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, but he homed in on Comey.
"I think Director Comey is probably near the top. He’s the one who said that his intention of leaking memos of his conversation was designed to prompt the appointment of a special counsel. It just strikes me as some vindictiveness and animus toward the president motivating a lot of the action," Cornyn said.
Graham, who earlier this month teased that he wants to bring in Comey, added that the former official would be called to publicly testify and "will answer for your time as FBI director."
And MSN confirmed Rand Paul wants to investigate Obama:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that lawmakers should investigate President Obama, suggesting that he could have played a role in the years-long Russia investigation that concluded over the weekend.
In a tweet, the senator suggested that Congress should probe the origins of the now-shuttered special counsel investigation into Russian election interference and the Trump campaign, seemingly suggesting that Obama was involved in the FBI probe that predated it.
"I agree with @kimguilfoyle Time for Congress to investigate. What did President Obama know and when? How did this hoax go on for so long unabated?" Paul asked.
Obama reportedly was informed by the FBI in 2016 that it was investigating Russia attempts to interfere in the 2016 election, but according to multiple news reports was warned against going public with the investigation by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who warned that Republicans would see it as a partisan move aimed at helping Hillary Clinton.
