Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has been one of the leading Republican voices to push back on the anti-Trump deep state.
Paul had a recent run-in with former CIA director John Brennan which was epic.
It did not end well for Brennan.

‘Your shame alone should shut you up’: Rand Paul hits back at John Brennan criticism over naming alleged whistleblower
Sen. Rand Paul shot back at former CIA Director John Brennan after he called the Kentucky Republican “beneath contempt” for shielding President Trump from removal from office following his impeachment.
“He typifies the worst of [Trump’s] craven enablers,” Brennan said of Paul Tuesday amid news of his plan to read the alleged whistleblower’s name in the Senate trial. “Any Senator excusing this dangerous behavior makes a mockery of public service.”
Paul took exception to Brennan’s remark, pointing to what he said are black marks on the former intelligence chief’s own record in public life.
“You want to know what’s a mockery of public service, John?” he responded. “Killing 500 people outside of any judicial system. Drone strikes on American citizens. Approving British spies to present a dossier of lies paid for by Hillary. Lying to Congress.”

Paul told Brennan: “Your shame alone should shut you up.”
Here is Brennan’s tweet:
Rand Paul is beneath contempt.
He typifies the worst of @realDonaldTrump’s craven enablers.
Any Senator excusing this dangerous behavior makes a mockery of public service.
History will revile all of you. https://t.co/3BLs2kmtti
