Rand Paul Doubles Down: If Fake News Won’t Name the Whistleblower, ‘I’m More Than Willing To’

Paul is showing the backbone that so many Congressional Republicans lack.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is getting more bold in his defense of President Donald Trump against the deep state, as they continue to promulgate a crisis based on Trump’s correspondence with the Ukraine.

Paul got up on stage at a Trump rally on Monday night and demanded that the fake news reveal the name of the whistleblower who levied specious, second-hand charges against the President. While the focus of the witch hunt used to be on Russian collusion, they switched to this new scam after the Mueller report cleared Trump of any serious wrongdoing.

“We also now know the name of the whistleblower. The whistleblower needs to come forward as a material witness because he worked for Joe Biden at the same time Hunter Biden was getting money from corrupt oligarchs,” Paul said at the Kentucky rally on Monday night.

“I say tonight to the media, do your job and print his name,” Paul said to the pro-MAGA crowd as they went wild.

Paul received a great deal of enmity from the media for demanding that they actually do their jobs. He stood firm against questioning from The Hill on Tuesday, asserting the law to a clueless reporter.

Paul was not done with those defiant comments. He went even further, telling the fake news that he would do their jobs and name the whistleblower himself if they were unwilling to do so.

“I’m more than willing to, and I probably will at some point. … There is no law preventing anybody from saying the name,” Paul said to reporters.

“I want it to be more about the process and less about the person,” Paul told Bret Baier during an interview that aired on Fox News. “Nothing stops me. There’s no law that stops me from doing it other than that I don’t want to make it about the one individual.”

Paul, who has been the most steadfast defender of liberty in the Senate since his election in 2010, asserts that the secrecy of the whistleblower’s identity is at odds with the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution. Trump is not being given the opportunity to face his accuser, who is widely believed to be a Democratic operative with an ax to grind against the President.

The Kentucky Senator is showing courage that is incredibly rare from anyone within the Washington D.C. swamp. Republicans would be wise to stand with Rand as he defends the President against chicanery from the intelligence community that is putting the electoral process and the rule of law into serious jeopardy.

Rand Paul Warns Third Party Will Rise if Republican Senators Vote with Democrats to Convict President Trump

The GOP is crumbling.

Published

on

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is warning that at least one-third of GOP senators will revolt and leave the party if Republicans join Democrats to convict the president.

This would potentially create the most viable third party in recent political history if Republican leadership is foolish enough to go down this path. Even though he refused to oppose the vote steal last week, Paul claims he and many of his colleagues intend to leave the party forever if the Senate goes through with impeachment.

“I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week. I voted against over-turning the election,” Paul said while appearing on FOX News on Friday night. “But at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion. If Republicans go along with it, it will destroy the party. A third of the Republicans will leave the party.”

“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Paul added. “This isn’t about, anymore, about the Electoral College, it’s about the future of the party, and whether you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party. Well, guess what? Millions of his fans will leave as well.”

Paul made these responses after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) publicly flirted with the idea of voting to convict President Trump.

“I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell said.

Paul is putting McConnell and the rest of the GOP leadership on notice. This is the line in the sand as far as he is concerned.

“They will destroy the Republican Party. If leadership is complicit with an impeachment or if leadership votes for an impeachment, they will destroy the party,” Paul said. 

“Like I say, I have opposed President Trump when I thought he was wrong, I’ve been for him when he was right. We did a lot of good things throughout the Trump presidency, and impeachment is purely a partisan thing,” he added.

Big League Politics has reported on the division within the GOP since 10 Republican turncoats in the House join Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time:

Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.

“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”

“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added…

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

The realignment that is happening within the conservative movement might result in the destruction of the Republican Party. President Trump may ultimately destroy the GOP swamp.
