While I respect the man, I do have some misgivings about Senatyor Rand Paul; particularly his foreign policy opinions. That said, the man is a rock solid conservative who pulls no punches when he sees politicos behaving badly.
Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said the FBI crossed the line with its raid of President Donald Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen, calling it a “great overstep” Tuesday on “America’s Newsroom.”
“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.”
Is he wrong? Mueller and his team spent countless hours and even more money on this Russian collusion investigation, and they have nothing to show for it, save for a few process crimes. Mueller is now off his leash, and investigating anything and everything in the hopes of finding a shred of evidence to destroy the president. It’s enough. No law enforcement officer would ever have this much leeway, and neither should a special prosecutor.
