(PoliticalLookout.com)- Republican Senator for Kentucky, Rand Paul, called on presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to “come out of hibernation” and explain himself over the set up of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Paul said that Biden should explain why he unmasked General Flynn, citing new evidence released by the courts that show how the FBI and prosecutors purposely encouraged Flynn to admit to something he didn’t do in an effort to get him fired or prove collusion with Russia.
During a press conference, Paul said:
“He needs to come out of hibernation and [journalists] need to ask Vice President Biden, ‘What kind of a person eavesdrops, is that something we think is a legitimate function of government, to eavesdrop on your opponents without a warrant? To illegally unmask them and listen to their private conversation?’”
He’s right, isn’t he? What other example can you think of of an outgoing administration going out of its way to eavesdrop on the conversations of officials from an incoming administration? It was revealed in the courts that in January 2017, before President Trump was inaugurated, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden attended an Oval Office meeting with the former Director of the FBI James Comey to discuss the questioning of Michael Flynn.
It means that both Biden and Obama knew what was going on, and now the courts have shown Flynn was set up, Biden has a lot of questions to answer.
The outspoken libertarian senator said that General Flynn has been “treated very poorly by his country,” citing his 33 years of service and describing how an abuse of power destroyed his life.
“This is an abuse of power that should not rest, and it should make every American worry that if Vice President Biden were elevated to the top office, would he again use this kind of power on political opponents?” Paul asked.
In a tweet, the senator also said that the Senate should “immediately hold a hearing” on the matter.
The Senate must immediately hold hearings on this! Clapper, Comey, Brennan and even Biden owe it to the American people. They should testify under oath. What did the former president know?
