Rand Paul — ‘I Think Andrew McCabe Did Worse Than General Flynn’

Republican Sen. Rand Paul said that “Andrew McCabe did worse than General Flynn” in a CNN interview Sunday.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked, “Would it bother you if the president ordered the firing of Mueller?”

“You know, I wouldn’t advocate it, but I would have never advocated for the appointment of a special prosecutor,” Paul said. “And people asked me recently, should there be one for McCabe and Peter Strzok and Lisa Page? And I’ve said no, because I think what we’ve discovered is, first when they went after Bill Clinton, now when they’ve gone after President Trump, that the prosecutor has too much power to do whatever they want, they’re looking at people’s tax returns from 20 years ago. I really think that the power is so unlimited that it’s worrisome for the people on the receiving end.”

“I really think General Flynn was treated unfairly. I think Andrew McCabe did worse than General Flynn, frankly. Andrew McCabe lied about doing something illegal. He leaked classified documents. General Flynn apparently did not state the truth about something he did that was legal. So you wonder, how are we going to make this fair, how are we going to make this just?” (RELATED: McCain: Rand Paul ‘Doesn’t Have Any Real Influence’ In Senate)
