Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has always been a firebrand when it comes to civil liberties, so it should come as no surprise to see him come out in full force against one of the most egregious abuses of power in modern political history.
“You know, the fact that Joe Biden [listened in] was very poor judgment, but I think was also an abuse of power,” the senator told Fox News during an interview. “And, this was precisely what they were accusing Trump of during the impeachment. They said: ‘Oh, you used the power of government to go after a political opponent.’ That’s exactly what Biden did here, in a partisan way.”
Former Vice President Joe Biden could very well end up being the next President of the United States, and that’s a terrifying prospect knowing what we know now about his involvement in the unmasking of General Michael Flynn. This scandal indicates the Obama Administration was mobilizing against the incoming Trump Administration from the outset. Then again, we already knew that when Obama’s goons tapped Trump’s communications — when he was a private citizen.
Don’t let their support for a few handpicked “social” issues fool you: the progressive left has no respect for individual privacy. It’s rooted in their philosophy of “what’s yours is ours.” It must be stopped no matter the cost.
Here is Senator Paul’s full statement on Joe Biden and the dangers of the political left.
