On Thursday, Senator Rand Paul claimed that members of the Deep State’s intelligence apparatus sent agents to spy on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
During a Thursday morning interview with “Fox & Friends” the conservative Kentucky senator referenced a source that informed him about alleged attempts by members of Obama’s Justice Department to collect information on the Trump campaign’s activities.
Paul stated, “Well my source tells me that the intelligence community, Obama’s intelligence community, [former CIA Director John] Brennan, [former Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper, [former FBI Director James] Comey, they were frustrated because they had this Russian dossier but nobody believed it was real.”
Paul was referencing the dossier of claims that a former MI6 agent named Christopher Steele compiled on Trump and Russia.
During the 2016 Presidential campaign, Hilary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee hired DC-based firm Fusion GPS which used Steele’s services to research Trump’s connections to Russia and possible collusion between his campaign and the Kremlin.
Paul said, that Fusion GPS’s research “wasn’t verifiable, they couldn’t get anything out of it.”
The Senator continued:
So they sent spies into the Trump campaign, they tried to entrap Trump officials to admit they were working with Russia. That wasn’t working, so they were frustrated.
Paul then claimed:
But they wanted to somehow get this information out — this Russian dossier … So finally they decided … what we have to do is attach this dossier, this fake dossier, to an intelligence report [given to Obama].
Despite these assertions, Paul did not specify which members of the Trump campaign were spies working with intelligence agencies.
Paul appears to be back on board the America First agenda with his recent call for an investigation of Obama era officials who disseminated the Russia collusion hoax.
Despite his vote against Trump’s National Emergency declaration at the border, Paul has been a reliable ally for the majority of Trump’s agenda.
Now Paul is now quickly leading the charge to clean up the malfeasances of Washington’s intelligence apparatus.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
