Rand Paul: A Lot of Russia Outcry Feels Like Witch Hunt by People ‘Unhappy with the Election’

Senator Rand Paul said on MSNBC this afternoon a lot of the calls for investigations into Russian election interference seem overtly political in nature.

He told Chris Jansing––guest-hosting MTP Daily––that he wants to know exactly what laws have been broken, and then if they have, this should go to the FBI for an investigation.

He said that AG Jeff Sessions hasn’t been the only person this week “misremembering” meetings and that he gets “the sense of a political sort of witch hunt” from people still “very unhappy with the election.”

Jansing also asked Paul about his recent remarks regarding the lack of usefulness in Republicans investigating Republicans. Paul said those remarks have been taken out of context.
