Rand Paul: “Both Parties” Guilty of the Same Thing in Ukraine

In an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” Sunday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said it was ridiculous to condemn and impeach President Trump for calling on Ukraine to investigate the Bidens…when the Democrats are guilty of doing the exact same thing.

“If anything is consistent here it’s that both parties have tried to involve themselves in Ukraine. So for example, four senators, Democrats, wrote a letter to the Ukrainian government and said, ‘If you don’t keep investigating Trump we may reconsider our bipartisan support for your aid.’ Both parties seem to be doing this,” the libertarian senator noted.

When Todd asked if he thought Hunter Biden was corrupt, Paul said: “I don’t really know enough about what he’s doing. I knew he traveled over there to try to seek information on Hunter Biden’s corruption. I think a lot of Americans see the $50,000 a month Hunter Biden was making and it doesn’t pass the smell test. I think most people do think there was some corruption involved with Hunter Biden. And I hope we do get to the bottom of it.”

But as for the controversy, Paul insisted that there was no difference between what Sens. Robert Menendez, Dick Durbin, and Patrick Leahy did than what Trump did.

“If you’re going to condemn Trump you need to condemn the Democrat senators. It shouldn’t be just one-sided,” Paul repeated. “Everybody’s going after President Trump. Someone needs to actually, in an objective way, evaluate a letter from four Democrats that said to Ukraine, ‘If you don’t keep investigating Trump we will reconsider our bipartisan support for aid.’ That’s a threat. And that’s the same kind of stuff they’re accusing Trump of. But nobody’s talking about that the Democrats are doing exactly the same thing.”

Naturally, Todd kept interrupting and insisting that while Trump and Paul Manafort were actually guilty of crimes, the Bidens are as innocent as the pure-driven snow. He’s thrown off even the pretense of impartiality lately, and it makes his interviews well-nigh unwatchable.

But then, he’s just one more fish in the tank for the Democrats in 2020. Hopefully, Republicans like Paul can keep sneaking past the gatekeepers so that the general public remains informed about topics that the mainstream media would just as soon stay under wraps.

  1. SCREW THEM ALL – THE RATS ARE CROOKED FROM HEAD TO TOE, AND OBAMA IS THE LEADER OF THE BAND MOST RECENTLY. BUSH, CLINTON WERE CORRUPT TOO. ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ ARE SOOOOO SICK OF THIS CRAP AND THE RATS SPENDING OUR TAX DOLLARS ON B.S. GET SOMETHING DONE, OR GET THE HELL OUT OF GOVERNMENT. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS THE BEST PRESIDENT EVER, BAR NONE. THE RATS ARE WANTING TO IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH BECAUSE THEY ARE TERRIFIED THAT OUR PRESIDENT IS EXPOSING EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM … PELOSI, KERRY, CLINTONS, BIDENS, OBAMAS AND MANY, MANY MORE. CORRUPTION ON STEROIDS.

  2. This “sermon”, should be “preached”, to the electorate…..Just think of the low IQ electorate that keeps sending the same “swamp dwellers”, back to their respective jobs in the Senate, & Congress! &….They just keep stealing money, & “NOT DOING THEIR CONSTITUTIONALLY INTENDED JOBS”! They take more vacations, than time spent on the job! Then, when 4 yrs have gone by, they can get out, & draw all the bennies, & un-earned wages for life? { stinking lawyers}…..pave their own way!

  3. Rand Paul is absolutely correct about the letter the four democrat Senators sent. I would go further than that however. BOTH parties have corrupt Congress members in them. Finding ways to enrich themselves financially is not something new. You can go back, WAY back and find all kinds of examples of scandals, and actual indictments of members of both parties for STUFF! No one wants to look back though, it is ALL ABOUT THE LAST FIVE MINUTES to listen to the MSM. We the people are NOT being served by a fairly high percentage of Congress members. The career ones certainly need a good looking over. It is just plain naive to not notice that they go into Congress average income earners. Soon enough and certainly the ones who STAY for years, they all seem to be living the lives of the “rich and famous”. The laws, the rules, the policies, the “ethics” have been tweaked along the way, but again that is just naive for any of us to believe that Congress has ever or will ever SELF POLICE themselves!!! They just keep finding ways to go after the wealth by hiding behind a maze of transactions so complicated that it would take a team of investigators YEARS to figure out what they have been up to. Then when some investigative writers/jouranalist DO ACTUALLY look into things, they are treated as if they are nothing but partisan conspiracy theorists. Take Peter Schweizer for example. He has been writing about politics for years. He has many books to his credit. It wasn’t until he wrote Clinton Cash that all of a sudden he was the pariah of DC and was practically run out of country , his reputation was impugned and it has only become worse with his latest book Secret Empires. I am reading it now and trying to follow the massively tangled ways and means that these politicians enrich themselves by is hard reading. Seems of late they have figured out how to funnel deals and the wealth from them through family and or friends and by using all sorts of “fronts” that are very very difficult to investigate, and the way the money can flow to family and or friends isn’t even necessarily illegal!!! Why, well because it is Congress who makes the laws…..fox in the hen house much??? I think the real tragedy in this country at the moment is the way the “people” are turning on each other. We are all taking sides to the point of violence, to the point of families not speaking to each other, to the point that no one will EVEN try to listen to the other persons views, it is attack attack attack, no mercy, total barbarianism is what it is. The politicians must be laughing their asses off in private whatching the “shitshow” that all this partisan ugliness is causing among the people. They probably go out to their cocktail parties and socialize behind their walls in their mansions and laugh , many of them are just insane however and we pretty much KNOW which ones are GONZO, and it does SEEM like the most GONZO OF GONZO just happens to be some of the really radical career Democrats, IE Maxine Waters, Elijah Cummings, Jerry Nadler, Corey Booker and those types, I just find it hard to believe that their districts and states keep electing these people! Our government has become so BIG that there is NO WAY that it can be controlled, let’s face it. But, we the people CAN DO BETTER by getting in the game and finding out just who these people are that we are electing and keep their feet to the fire. If they say they are going to do this or that while they are campaigning and then CRICKETS after they get elected that is bad, and especially bad when they KEEP doing that every campaign cycle and we KEEP believing them!!!! THAT IS INSANE. I feel really bad for the black americans, they have been lied to for decades and decades. They have been promised the stars and given garbage. ALL high population black cities/communities are run by Democrats. ALL of them are a mess! The same poverty that was there five decades ago is still there and even worse! Their Congress people keep getting reelected…WHY? I am with Trump when he said during his campaign to the black voters….TRY ME, WHAT THE HELL have you got to loose? You are not and have not been getting served for decades by Democrats so WHY NOT TRY SOMETHING ELSE? If I were a black American I would be so pissed off my head would be exploding. I am glad that some prominent black americans are speaking up about it and more are changing their “loyalty” to the Democrats. The Democrats are now on to bigger things with the open border thing, to get more voters that way, they have also been targeting our young people in a big way. I don’t know if there is a way for healing going forward, but I do know that the mess this nation is in CANNOT be entirely blamed on one Donald Trump. The problems have been percolating for awhile and the consequences of apathy by the people are showing up big time. If we the people want a decent country going forward the FIRST THING WE NEED to do is get rid of the politicians who have displayed without a doubt that they are WOLVES IN SHEEPS CLOTHING, they are not for their constituents, they are for THEMSELVES.

  4. Starts with Pelosi and Schiff and Shummer…anyway her side kicks totally disasters. Not fit as any political official let along fit for Senate or Congress….hateful things ought to crawl under a rock and go away

  5. Rand Paul needs his head screwed on straight. Biden threatened to withhold one billion in aid unless the Prosecutor who was prosecuting his son was fired within 6 hours. Trump has asked a “favor” of Zelensky to look into any wrongdoing by any US representative (Biden comes to mind) in any scandal or wrongdoing. BIG DIFFERENCE RAND PAUL
    It is part of a President’s duty to investigate any wrong doing of a government official in another country. Read the Constitution before you pop off your mouth about our President Trump. Sour loser!!

  6. You stated this terrifically.
