Rand Paul is continuing to block a resolution that would see the Mueller report made public, in an effort to force investigations into whether Hillary Clinton’s campaign funded the dossier of dirt on Trump that is thought to have led to the special Counsel ‘collusion’ investigation.
“What we don’t know is was President Obama told that the evidence to get this investigation started was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign?” Paul said, referring to the infamous Steele dossier.
“We need to know that.” Paul said, adding that communications between Obama-era officials including James Comey and John Brennan, the former respective heads of the FBI and CIA, also need to be made public so the “entire story” can be understood.
“It was so scandalous and so unverified and has turned out to be untrue, and yet this was the basis for the beginning of the investigation. This was the basis for doing something extraordinary,” Paul said of the dossier.
“I think it’s very important that we not turn our country into this back and forth where each successive party tries to use the apparatus of government to investigate the previous president,” Paul also noted.
Senator Chris Murphy has introduced bill S.3274 to fight “propaganda and disinformation”. Robert Barnes joins Alex to break down how this is actually a tactic to continue and even amplify their censorship of Christians, conservatives, and patriots.
Intelligence experts have said that the Steele dossier should be investigated as possible Russian disinformation and an effort to mislead US intelligence.
Many Trump supporters have claimed that the notorious Steele dossier itself, paid for by Clinton’s campaign via Fusion GPS, was a genuine example of ‘Russian collusion’ since the information was obtained from Russian officials.
A Rasmussen poll released this week found that more Americans now think Hillary Clinton colluded with foreign operatives than Trump.
