Senate RINOs Reject Rand Paul’s Transparency Push, Call to Protect Anonymity of Anti-Trump ‘Whistleblower’

They want to protect the identity of the deep state operative conspiring to destroy President Trump.

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.

Mad Maxine Says She Has Met Crips and Bloods ‘In The Hood’ with ‘More Integrity’ Than the President

She is off her rocker.

Published

on

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) made the stunning claim recently that she has met gangbangers from the inner city with “more integrity” than President Donald Trump.

The Congresswoman, who has been ridiculed by the President for having a low IQ, made the comment while appearing on Showtime’s “Desus & Mero.”

“I have worked in some of the toughest communities,” she said in a clip that was tweeted by the hosts Thursday. “I’ve worked with gangs. I’ve worked with Crips, I’ve worked with Bloods. And there’s more integrity in many of these young people in the ‘hood than this man has.”

She also claimed without providing any evidence that the “street player” Mr. Trump has “flirted with gangsters” throughout his history as a businessman and politician.

“This country cannot tolerate another four years of him,” she said.

The clip of Waters running her mouth about Trump can be seen here:

Waters has angered the populists within her party by suggesting that the big money should have more control over deciding who is the Democrat Party presidential nominee.

“You would have two, three, four at a time in Beverly Hills having dinners,” she said last week. “Some of our contributors who are very rich were holding, you know, fancy parties, trying to accommodate the request for donations and contributions. And so, you know, the conclusion, the thinking is that if we are supplying tremendous dollars to candidates, we ought to have more say.”

“A lot of people have come to the conclusion that it should not simply be Iowa and New Hampshire and certainly they are not reflective of the makeup of this country,” she added.

Previously, Waters has demanded that President Trump be incarcerated and subjected to cruel and unusual punishment because of Ukraine-gate and other “nothing burger” fake scandals.

“I’m calling on the GOP to stop Trump’s filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed,” Waters wrote in a tweet last year. “Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement.”

“But for now, impeachment is the imperative,” she added.

From her words, it is clear that Waters has a delusional view of herself and her partisan crusade to destroy President Trump.

“Most people who have watched me over the past two years know that I am a responsible person who has talked about the Constitution, who has talked about the fact that this President does not respect the fact that (Russian President Vladimir) Putin is responsible for basically bugging our electoral system, hacking into the DNC. They know that I’ve been serious about this. I’ve had the courage to stand up when nobody else would stand with me,” Waters said.

Few lawmakers embody the excesses of the Washington D.C. swamp than Waters, who has lingered in Congress for almost three decades.
