Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, much like his libertarian folk-hero father, is unafraid to speak his mind when it comes to our nation’s political discourse.
Now, more than ever, Paul’s tireless pursuit of what’s best for his constituents is a breath of fresh air on Capitol Hill, where lobbyists and industry interests tend to steer the national discourse. In this time of political upheaval, Rand Paul has maintained his integrity and his reputation as a truth-teller, even when it comes at a significant risk to his career.
His latest tirade against some of his fellow Republicans is just another day at the office for Rand.
During a recent appearance on Fox News, speaking to Tucker Carlson, Paul had the following to say:
CARLSON: Well, that’s exactly right. And we’re being told we have no right to know the answer after two years of sitting patiently and listening to this nonsense about Russia.
So Lindsey Graham is at the center of this. You want to give him the benefit of the doubt. But the question remains, why hasn’t he done this? It’s within his power to do it. He hasn’t done it. What’s the answer? Why?
PAUL: You know, I think we’ll have to wait and see. I think he does want to get to the bottom of this. But you’re right, he needs to go out and exercise his power. We’ve been waiting a long time on this.
Some people and I’m not going to say Senator Graham, but there are other Republican senators up here, whose allegiance is more to the deep state than it is to the President.
PAUL: I do think the Senator — I think that Senator Graham does like the President and wants to get to the bottom of this, but a lot of us want to see it get started. We want to see subpoenas, and we don’t want to see everything being done in secret on the House side. And then they parse out what they want to parse out.
Most of those people that are testifying over there could equally be asked to testify over here. But really, I want to see Brennan come in and I want to see him under oath.
CARLSON: Well, of course.
PAUL: I want to see him under oath.
The Senator from The Bluegrass State has long been a proponent of small government, and for the dismantling of the Deep State itself – a sentiment that has certainly painted a target on his back in the past.
