Rand Paul: Deep State Spies Infiltrated the Trump Campaign
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.
