Rand Paul: Justin Amash Supports ‘An Abuse of Intelligence Power’ by Pushing Trump’s Impeachment

Blindly trusting the word of a federal bureaucrat with an agenda isn’t particularly libertarian.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is not happy with his friend Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) for supporting the impeachment of President Donald Trump based on the contents of the Mueller report.

“I actually think the libertarian position on the investigation is ― you know, libertarians, we’ve been very, very critical of the intelligence community having too much power, including congressman Amash has said, you know, really you should have to get a warrant before you get an American’s records,” Paul said to the Huffington Post on Wednesday.

The Kentucky Senator finds it strange that Amash isn’t very concerned with the civil liberties violations committed against President Trump and the precedent it may set in the years to come, giving the deep state the ability to undermine electoral results if the entrenched bureaucracy does not like the result.

Paul never bought into the Mueller report because of his roots in the libertarian movement. He called conclusion of a years-long special investigation the “antithesis of libertarianism” constituting “an abuse of intelligence power consistent with what libertarians have been complaining about for a long time.”

Paul did give his friend Amash some credit, saying he supported the Congressman’s proposed House amendment “which says you have to have a warrant before you target Americans because foreign intelligence warrants have a lower standard.”

Another libertarian Republican who is close to both Paul and Amash, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has also criticized the Mueller probe as a gross overreach of government power, contradicting the blind trust Amash puts into the deep state’s findings.

Paul has accused lawmakers who are overly obsessed about Trump’s involvement with Russia as being guilty of “Trump derangement syndrome.” Amash may have contracted a serious case, as he continues to stake out his claim as the pro-impeachment Republican despite Trump being cleared of any Russian collusion.

The House Freedom Caucus, of which Amash was a founding member, voted to condemn him yesterday. Liberty supporters in the GOP are likely to continue distancing themselves from Amash as he hastens his efforts to use the Mueller report to harm Trump’s presidency.

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks

The Democrat complained about masks.

New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.

Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”

This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.

Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.

Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.

Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
