Rand Paul: Joe Biden Used The Power Of Government To Go After A Political Opponent (VIDEO)

Senator Rand Paul is calling for an investigation.

Speaking to reporters this week, he reminded people that Trump was accused of using government to target a political opponent. That was the basis for impeachment.

But in targeting General Michael Flynn, that’s what actually happened. The Obama administration targeted a political opponent and Joe Biden was part of that.

“These rumors have been going around for years that Obama’s administration was abusing te power of unmasking, and this sounds like they were using it to go after a political opponent, which is a serious offense and should be investigated,” Paul said. “The fact that Vice President Biden is directly involved in the unmasking of a political opponent — think about it. You remember impeachment? They said the president was using the government to go after a political opponent? This is Vice President Biden using the spying powers of the U.S. to go after a political opponent and he is caught red-handed here… eavesdropping on a political opponent’s phone calls.”

“Every reporter in the country needs to ask this legitimate question. They need to come out of hibernation and ask Vice President Biden, do we think it is a legitimate function of government to eavesdrop on political opponents, illegally unmask them and listen to their private conversation?”

“This is exactly what they were accusing President Trump of — he was acquitted on those charges. They have now found that Vice President Biden is guilty of using government to go after a political opponent.”

Paul has been making similar points on Twitter:

The Obama administration, and Joe Biden, need to answer for this.
