Senator Rand Paul decided to play bulldog when it comes to raiding the president’s personal lawyer’s office over the weekend, and the swamp creature who got the brunt of his wrath was Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.
“The first question we ought to ask is what does this have to do with Russia,” Paul said. “I thought the special prosecutor was investigating Russian collusion. Going after someone’s personal attorney is a great overstep I think, in the authority of the prosecutor.”“This is why I have opposed really having special prosecutors for almost anything,” Paul continued. “I think they abuse their authority. I think Mueller has abused his authority. They say. well, he asked somebody else, another U.S. Attorney to do it. Yes but this is coming at the behest of Mueller.”…
“I think this investigation no longer has much to do with Russia. I would warn people around America who say oh, that don’t like the president, oh, this is just fine because it’s against President Trump. This is an enormous power used against anybody,” Paul said.
“You remember what Chuck Schumer said a couple months ago? He said if you cross the intelligence agencies, they can screw you six ways to Sunday,” Paul concluded. “This is about enormous power, prosecutorial power but also power in the intelligence communities. We have to rein this in or every American citizen is exposed to this kind of abuse of power.”
Well, Rand, tell us how you really feel.
Within the Rand rant, there are some good points:
What, exactly, DOES the President’s lawyer have to do with the Russia investigation, especially when lawyer-client privilege can be invoked?
Why do special prosecutors have so much power?
Why is overreach tolerated?How can the intelligence agencies screw us all in ways that would probably make Satan blush?
Whatever is happening in the swamp these days is not wholesome. And, really, we’d all like to know why the FBI thought it necessary to raid the law offices of a private attorney.
