Rand Paul Calls for Russia Hoax Perpetrators in the Obama Administration to be Investigated
Senator Rand Paul has called for an investigation into Obama officials who spread the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.
Paul has followed in the footsteps of Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham requesting an investigation into Obama-era officials who were responsible for pushing the costly, irresponsible conspiracy theory.
Reports revealed that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid Fusion GPS to produce a dossier alleging the existence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
However, a number of Obama administration officials were also in on the action.
The co-founder of Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson and the author of the dossier, ex-MI6 agenda Christopher Steele, sent the dossier to several Obama officials at the State Department, Justice Department, the FBI, and members of the media.
A report from the New York Times indicated that former FBI Director James Comey discussed with White House officials, who refused to be named, about how to proceed with the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Comey claimed that the “president replied that going public would play right into Russia’s hands by sowing doubts about the election’s legitimacy.”
Following the 2016 elections, Comey handed the dossier over to President-elect Trump. However, when Comey briefed the dossier to Trump, it was abruptly leaked to CNN. Obama’s Director of National Intellgience James Clapper was the primary suspect behind the leak.
When CNN reported on the briefing, Buzz later published the full version of the dossier.
But the involvement of Obama-era officials did not end there. Former and current officials anonymously leaked intelligence and other material to the media suggesting a conspiracy between Trump campaign officials and Russia.
The recent Mueller Report has effectively put an end to all of the Trump-Russia collusion narrative.
Rand Paul is now one of the leaders spearheading a move to bring Obama officials to justice for their apparent overreach.
This is a significant bounce back from Paul’s latest vote against Trump’s emergency order measure. A move which was criticized by the hosts of the Liberty Conservative Podcast, Shane Trejo and Rocco Lucente, as a strategic misstep.
Nevertheless, the Kentucky Senator has proven to be a reliable opponent of the entrenched military-industrial complex in Washington D.C. and recently introduced a withdrawal bill of his own. Paul has stood by President Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan and Syria despite Senate interventionists doing everything they can to block it.
Border vote notwithstanding, Rand Paul continues to be a reliable advocate of President Trump’s America First agenda.
