Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul says that the Clintons “think they’re above the law” and that there is “a grand hypocrisy” to Hillary Clinton’s acceptance of donations from countries with poor records on women’s rights.
“I think the thing is about the Clintons is that there’s a certain sense that they think they’re above the law,” he said in an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.”
Paul argued that Clinton is wrong to say that Republicans are waging a “war on women” even as the Clinton Foundation receives funding from Saudi Arabia.
“Hillary Clinton has taken money from countries that rape victims are publicly lashed,” he said, describing a recent case of a woman in Saudi Arabia who was whipped after being gang raped by seven men. “We should be boycotting, voluntarily boycotting a country, not buying stuff from a country that does that to women,” he said.
