(Tea Party PAC) – Sen. Rand Paul is a man who has consistently stood up for liberty and freedom during his tenure in political office, and while he and President Trump weren’t on good terms at the time of the 2016 presidential election, that is now water under the bridge. Or over the dam, depending on how you like to look at it.
Now, Paul is one of the defenders of the president against the Deep State insanity that has come out in full force against Trump, especially after all of the information that Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has released that reveals the plot by Obama officials to try and thwart Trump at every possible turn, both during the election and his time in office.
Paul took Vice President Joe Biden to the woodshed for using spy powers against a political opponent in a brilliant takedown.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) reacted Wednesday to former Vice President Joe Biden being one of several top Obama officials who may have received intelligence from unmasking requests targeting former Trump national security advisor Mike Flynn — according to newly-declassified documents by acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell — stating that the presumptive Democrat nominee was “caught red-handed” using U.S. spy powers to “go after a political opponent.”
@RandPaul: “Remember we went through this thing called impeachment? They said President @realDonaldTrump was using the govt to go after a political opponent? This is VP Biden using the spying powers of the US to go after a political opponent. He’s caught red-handed here.”

A transcript is as follows:
REPORTER: If this happens to a current president, this would be an impeachable offense, if not a criminal offense.
SEN. RAND PAUL: Can you imagine? Yeah.
REPORTER: Would you like there to be criminal charges brought against them?
SEN. PAUL: I think we need to get to the bottom of this, and I think the first thing is to interview, under oath, [Acting] Director of National Intelligence [Grenell] and get to the bottom of what goes on with unmasking. How unusual is this that the entire upper echelon — individually it wasn’t just one request for this, there were dozens of requests. Almost everyone in President Obama’s top circle wanted to see this and wanted to listen to this conversation.
But this is troubling. This isn’t about national security, this is about eavesdropping on your opponent and eavesdropping on the new president’s top advisor. This is very, very troubling. This was being led by at least by Vice President Biden, if not [President Obama], and we need to get to the bottom of it to make sure it never happens again. For the average American, they’re worried that this could happen to a top general like Flynn, but could you imagine this power being unharnessed on an ordinary American? How would we defend ourselves?
REPORTER #2: What was the most likely scenario? That there was an intercepted call, the transcript was then circulated among senior staff and then the various senior staff requested to know who was on the call? What is the most likely scenario as to why these names are on the list?
SEN. PAUL: I think it’s an important question. The way I read it, is it looks like each of these administration officials actually individually requested to listen to this conversation. It was like, well, someone says, “why don’t we have someone go listen to this and send the transcript around.” It sounds like each of these people individually did. These rumors have been going around for years that President Obama’s administration was abusing this power of unmaking, and this sounds like these were abusing it to go after a political opponent, which I think is a very serious offense and should be investigated — and the fact that Vice President Biden is directly involved with unmasking a political opponent. Think about it. Remember we went through this thing called impeachment? They said President Trump was using the government to go after a political opponent? This is Vice President Biden using the spying powers of the United States to go after a political opponent. He’s caught red-handed here.
Rand Paul is right on the money. Biden and Obama both abused the political power they were entrusted with by the American people to try and take out an opponent who they feel threatened the work they had accomplished in office. The work in question was laying the foundation for a shift from a constitutional republic over to a socialist big government nanny state.
After eight years of Obama and company, the American people got a small taste of the socialism and decided it wasn’t what they wanted, thus Trump gained a lot of support. Not wanting to see their carefully laid plans be burnt to the ground, they resorted to conspiracy as a means of bringing about the outcome they wanted.
Now they must be held accountable for their actions. They have betrayed everything this country stands for and need to be made an example of, to show people justice in America still exists. Everyone is equal under the law.
