Rand Paul: 'Somebody Was Spying On The Trump Campaign,' Flynn 'Lost His Job' Because Of It

Rand Paul: 'Somebody Was Spying On The Trump Campaign,' Flynn 'Lost His Job' Because Of It

Senator Rand Paul weighed in on James Comey's "wiretap" denials Monday afternoon, telling Fox's Neil Cavuto that "somebody was spying on the Trump campaign" even if they didn't use an "old-fashioned bug."

From Fox News:

"Everybody admits that somebody spied on Mike Flynn, and he was part of the Trump campaign," Paul said. "It sounds like what the president said has already been proven to be true."

He said that the media is confused, because they think that wiretapping means placing an "old-fashioned bug" on someone's telephone.

"If you haven't looked recently, most of our telephones don't have wires," Paul said. "'Wiretapping' is a broad term for surveillance."

Cavuto said that surveilling Flynn is one thing, but he pressed Paul if Trump himself was tapped.

"I think 'wiretapping' to Donald Trump probably meant spying. And I think 'Donald Trump' or the 'campaign' also probably meant Mike Flynn," Paul said. "So I think really we're arguing circles around something that most people are admitting."

"Somebody was spying on the Trump campaign and ... Mike Flynn lost his job because of an illegal felony in which somebody released the results of spying on the Trump campaign."

Limbaugh On Comey Hearing: Message to Trump Is Stop The 'Drain-The-Swamp Stuff' or Face Impeachment

Limbaugh On Comey Hearing: Message to Trump Is Stop The 'Drain-The-Swamp Stuff' or Face Impeachment

Monday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh maintained a House Intelligence Committee hearing that featured testimony from FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Michael Rogers was meant to send a message to President Donald Trump and his administration.

Limbaugh argued that although there were some good questions from Republicans members during the hearing, it was meant to be a warning shot at Trump — allow Washington Republicans to run the town or face possible impeachment.

Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of RushLimbaugh.com):

These hearings today, what happened last week and the week before that, what happened during the transition period... What all of this is can be explained simply by saying, "Look at how terrified they are in the Washington-New York establishment, of Donald Trump and draining the swamp." The Never Trumpers on both sides of the aisle. There are conservative Never Trumpers today celebrating over the fact that Comey made it official that there's an investigation of Trump and colluding with the Russians.

These people know that there isn't any evidence of this, but that doesn't matter. What everybody in Washington supports is the smearing, the slander, and the libel of Donald Trump. And these hearings today? The FBI director, James Comey, is trying to save the jobs of a lot of people. He's trying to save the careers of a whole lot of people -- his included -- in, I think, an inappropriate way. And the Republicans in this committee? Look folks, I've been waiting. I've been patiently waiting. I've been trying to hold it, keep the powder dry. But the Republicans on this committee...

I know it's early, and they're gonna go on all day. But so far, outside of Trey Gowdy and a question from Peter King and Devin Nunes the chairman, there just hasn't been much. For example, "Are you still investigating the Clinton Foundation, Director Comey?" "I can't say." By the way, Comey said he got special permission to reveal this investigation. Who gave him that special permission? He said he went to the Department of Justice. Who's over there? Who runs that? That it would be Jeff Sessions.

The Trump administration itself granted permission for Comey to announce this today. (interruption) Well, no. My point there is that there's no attempted cover-up of anything going on there. The Trump administration could very well have said, Jeff Sessions could have said, "Comey, look, it's just like you said last summer about Hillary: We don't detail ongoing investigations." But he today was given permission to do just that, and he's running with it. And the whole point of this today -- and, by the way, it doesn't mean I'm not gonna go through this and give you what the real news of these hearings is today and what the backdrop of all this is.

Because there's a really salient factor that's driving this from the Democrat side that is never going to be reported or commented on, which I'm going to touch on myself today. But, as I say, the purpose of this is to further the narrative that Trump is illegitimate, that he should not be president, that his election was the result of tampering by the Russians. So the objective is that Trump either stops this reform business he's got, stops this drain-the-swamp stuff, and starts letting the Washington Republicans run the town again, or they're gonna impeach him.

Man Involved In White House Bomb Scare: "This Is A Test"

Man Involved In White House Bomb Scare: "This Is A Test"

A man arrested near the White House after he falsely told Secret Service agents he had a bomb in his vehicle also said, “this is a test,” stoking concerns after several other security incidents in recent weeks.

Sean Patrick Keoughan of Roanoke, Virginia was arrested after he pulled up to a security checkpoint at 15th Street and East Street NW near the White House at 11pm on Saturday night in a stolen 2017 Chevrolet Impala.

According to police, Keoughan told Secret Service, “There’s a bomb in the trunk,” while holding an object in his hand. As he was being arrested, Keoughan added, “This is a test.”

A robot was dispatched to investigate the car but nothing was found. Keoughan was subsequently charged with making false bomb threats and unauthorized use of a vehicle.

Earlier in the day there was another security scare after a man breached the buffer zone around the White House “in an apparent attempt to get to the White House fence,” although he was not able to jump the fence.

Earlier this month, Jonathan Tran did manage to make it past the fence before walking around White House grounds for 17 minutes before being spotted. He was able to get close to a White House entrance before being apprehended. Tran was reportedly concerned about Russian ties to Trump and was attempting to deliver a message to the president.

In a related story, the Secret Service announced that it would permanently remove an top special agent from her position after she posted on Facebook that she would not take a bullet for Trump.

Given the innumerable death threats against Trump, including a purported assassination attempt last year, the numerous security scares around the White House, along with Keoughan’s admission that his intention was to carry out a “test,” if there was a serious plan to assassinate the president, its plotters can only be learning from these incidents.

The hysteria being generated by the mainstream media in response to Trump simply moving forward with the policy agenda he promised during his campaign will undoubtedly embolden disturbed individuals to believe they have the moral high ground, especially in light of the fact that numerous celebrities and journalists have also called for Trump to be killed.

POLL: Canadians Want Illegal Immigrants Deported

POLL: Canadians Want Illegal Immigrants Deported

Canadians overwhelming favor deporting illegal immigrants in general, as well as recent illegal border crossers fleeing the US to Canada, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows.

From Reuters:

Canadians appeared to be just as concerned about illegal immigration as their American neighbors, according to the poll, which was conducted between March 8-9. Some 48 percent of Canadians said they supported "increasing the deportation of people living in Canada illegally."

When asked specifically about the recent border crossings from the United States, the same number - 48 percent - said Canada should "send these migrants back to the U.S." Another 36 percent said Canada should "accept these migrants" and let them seek refugee status.

That's a massive 12 point gap.



Note, almost no one thinks bringing these migrants in will make their country more safe, whereas 41% say it will make their country less safe.

The government is, of course, completely ignoring the will of the public and is allowing every last one of these criminals to apply for asylum from the Big Bad Donald Trump.

I hereby propose anyone who favors bringing these illegals in should be made to house them in their own homes and be held personally responsible for the crimes they commit.
