While the GOP Congress has ignored the president’s self-enrichment, refusal to disclose his tax returns, and clear violations of the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause, some have expressed willingness to investigate his opaque ties to Russia. Paul is not one of them. And not only does he see no need for investigation on Russia, Paul has staked […]
Rand Paul on Flynn: ‘Makes no sense’ to investigate fellow Republicans I just don’t think it’s useful to be doing investigation after investigation, particularly of your own party.

Rand Paul has a victim complex Paul’s problem is that he doesn’t really see anything wrong with what he said – or at least he won’t admit it.
