His latest tweetstorm took aim at Attorney General William Barr for allegedly misleading the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings and pushing a “false narrative” that the Trump campaign was improperly spied on during the 2016 election…

Paul, R-Ky., said on “America’s Newsroom” Thursday that he takes the opposite view from Amash, seeing the origins of the Russia investigation as being “un-libertarian.”

He explained that the powers, specifically FISA surveillance, utilized in the FBI counterintelligence probe are the kind that libertarians have long warned could be abused by the government.

“I see an abuse of power from Comey, Clapper, Brennan, from all these guys,” Paul said.

“I think they took this great power we entrusted with them to spy on foreigners and they directed it against Americans for partisan reasons. So, I think this has to be investigated and I think it’s wrong for any Republican to think, ‘Oh gosh, this is a legitimate investigation.’ I think it’s a very partisan investigation.”

Rand Paul has been very consistent in his views. He has spoken out about this issue on Twitter repeatedly.

We couldn’t agree more, Senator Paul.
