Senator Rand Paul took to Twitter on Thursday to blast the Senate for allowing perjurers like James Clapper to get off scot-free while aggressively pursuing anyone associated with President Donald Trump.
The Kentucky senator declared that the Senate should investigate FBI methods and selective prosecution of Trump officials.
“Justice is supposed to be blind. Why is it that an admitted liar like James Clapper perjured himself to Congress and got off scot-free?
But if you’re somehow associated with @realDonaldTrump, then they will pursue you relentlessly? This shouldn’t be a one-way street!” Senator Paul tweeted.
“The Senate should investigate FBI methods and selective prosecution of Trump officials. TIME FOR HEARINGS!”
Clapper, the director of national intelligence from 2010 to 2017, managed to avoid perjury charges despite admitting that he lied to Congress while testifying about mass surveillance on March 12, 2013.
He told Senator Ron Wyden that the NSA was not collecting “any type of data at all” on millions of Americans — which was a lie.
Rand Paul then went after Saudi Arabia and exposed them for their nefarious activities. From The Washington Examiner:
At The American Conservative’s annual foreign policy conference in October, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said, “If you ask me who’s the worst at spreading hatred and trying to engender terrorism around the world, it’s Saudi Arabia hands down.”
Rand Paul came out firing yesterday over some clear hypocrisy coming from the swamp. Paul has been fighting the neocon establishment for years and is often the lone sane foreign policy voice in our government.
Paul fights against stupid wars and he fights against injustice here at home and he does not back down.
Now he is calling out some rank hypocrisy coming from the deep state and what he is exposing should terrify everyone. From The Gateway Pundit:
