Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) caused quite the stir on Monday when he called for the fake news to expose the identity of the deep state whistleblower who filed a complaint against President Donald Trump regarding his communication with the Ukraine despite having no first-hand knowledge of the situation.
“I say tonight to the media, do your job and print his name,” Paul said to a raucous crowd at a Trump rally in Kentucky.
Democrats immediately bashed Paul for his comments, accusing him of breaking the law and making America less safe with his strong rhetoric in favor of transparency.
“I cannot stress just how wrong this is. We have federal whistleblower laws designed to protect the identity and safety of patriotic Americans who come forward to stand up for the Constitution,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said during a speech on the Senate floor.
“Who cares about the whistleblower?” Former Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill said while appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Tuesday morning. “I mean seriously, it is so irrelevant at this point.”
“Well, Rand Paul’s just kind of an idiot about stuff. I mean, this is like so silly … we all know that the whistleblower’s account has been corroborated by information directly from the White House,” she added.
While it is unsurprising that Democrats would defend the deep state whistleblower, a surprising amount of Senate Republicans are echoing the Democrats’ concerns about protecting the anonymity of this deep state operative. They want to protect the secrecy of an individual who is actively participating in a coup to destroy the Trump presidency.
“I think whistleblowers have the right to remain confidential and their privacy ought to be respected,” Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said.
“Whistleblowers are entitled to protection under the law … To try to reveal the identity of this individual is contrary to the intent of the whistleblower law,” Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said.
“I don’t agree with that,” Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) said to The Hill. “I think the whistleblower can remain anonymous if that’s what they want.”
“That’s not my view,” Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) said to counter-signal Paul. “But it’s also not my view that the whistleblower should be able to answer questions in an anonymous way, and I think the whistleblower should come to the Senate Intelligence Committee.”
Other Republican lawmakers, such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), gave tepid responses regarding whether the whistleblower should be exposed or not.
“What I’m going to do is wait until we get the case from the House — it looks like that is going to happen — and withhold judgment on the daily revelations, charges, witnesses, all the rest that you all of course, need to report on as it — as it comes out. That’s really all I have to say about that at this point,” McConnell said.
Rubio talked out of both sides of his mouth, as usual. He said that the law must be followed but “at some point people are also allowed to confront their accuser … so it’s a delicate situation.”
Paul has Trump’s back when it comes to fighting back against this witch hunt, but sadly, far too many Republicans in Washington D.C. are too scared of the deep state to fight back against this pernicious coup attempt.
Rand Paul Warns Third Party Will Rise if Republican Senators Vote with Democrats to Convict President Trump
The GOP is crumbling.
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.
The full segment with Paul and host Laura Ingraham can be seen here:
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.
