A GOP lawmaker calls for an investigation into Obama administration officials who may have tried to keep President Trump out of office.

In a tweet Thursday, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul said it’s time to investigate high ranking Obama government officials who might have colluded to prevent the election of President Trump.

He claimed it could be worse than Watergate.

While he didn’t offer specifics, there has been controversy surrounding the current Russia probe as many GOP leaders have accused Robert Mueller of having a conflict-of-interest.

Additionally, Republicans have been critical of the lack of effort in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

    Obama allowed Hezbollah to operate a
    multi-billion dollar cocaine distribution and money laundering scheme
    IN THE UNITED STATES to “soften up” Iran for nuclear talks.
    Operating in secret, the DEA mapped out the entire Hezbollah scheme.
    Every time the DEA attempted to take action against Hezbollah, the
    Obama administration threw up roadblocks. Look it up yourself and
    make your own decisions.

    Who would investigate, and moreover, who would prosecute? AG Sessions? Another special prosecutor with political operative hit men agents? Congressional committees? The “justice” dept. has demonstrated defiant and unapologetic double standards, with full press cover, and subjective “justice” for the truly elite, even given incontrovertible evidence such as espionage act violations documented by judicial watch.

  • semper liber

    Obama was the most corrupt of all Presidents. The fawning media gave him a pass and continue to do so. Mueller is trying to find dirt on Trump and the liberals are still holding on to that but every time he finds something corrpt it’s Hillary, Bill or Barry that emerges.

  • TwoElks

    WHO is going to do the probing? Very, very few of these rats can be trusted. They sat idly by and watched high treason taking place and did absolutely nothing to stop it. Many even agreed with what was being done to our nation.

  • Charles Martel

    If there’s no jail time accountability for the kind of crimes & malfeasance we’ve seen with Hillary and the Obama administration then it’s just a laugh to the bank and strong encouragement for future political miscreants. So far it looks like a laugh to the bank – can’t even get the names of congressional harassment-settlement slush fund users when we (unknowingly) footed the bill.

  • Aldo

    The only thing that could be WORSE would be if that lying sack of _____ killary got elected @&$!#$()!%!

  • Aldo

    Don’t Forget krooked killer killary klinton !!!

    Trump / Rand ticket

  • zoey

    Paul a stand up guy

  • Max42

    Let Mueller stay, but at the same time, there needs to be another special investigation into the Obama administration’s efforts to put Hillary in the White House precisely so there would never be such an investigation. If Democrats oppose it, then we know it’s absolutely necessary.

  • landy fincannon

    Yea, I wouldn’t hold by breath.

  • Wanda

    Why is their not an One America News Network on television for all to see. They are a refreshing alternative for news.

  • Sonny Shaw

    The people of the US need to know the truth, wherever it leads and whoever it exposes to the facts of Obama and his kick in teeth to the incoming President. Obama should pay and pay dearly for his treachery.

  • Johnny G.

    You ain’t seen anything yet! I suspect that President Trump has a specific time and place when to REALLY put the screws to the denizens of the deepest part of the swamp.

  • MJABRTDK

    Mr. Rand as almost everyone knows this is just the tip of the iceberg. BHO & HC for jail 2018.

    Every day of Obama’s regime was worse then Watergate…

  • Brad

    “May have colluded” – call it like is is,
    they criminally colluded!!!

  • nfcapitalist

    If the FBI will go to the ends of the earth to capture and charge bank robbers why are they so reluctant to investigate Uranium One for $145,000,000 (million) or the $7,000,000,000 (billion) that disappeared in the State Department all under Hillary Clinton’s watch?

    … hello?

  • Cheryl the Deplorable

    It is worse than Watergate, 20 times worse when you factor in Obama protected a Hezbollah drug ring for political reasons, to save the Iran Deal.

    • A marcus Young

      Is that the deal where he secretly flew bails of American cash to Iran?

  • Cheryl the Deplorable

    He was the only Republican that voted no on the CR. He can fight it out in January now.

        Sorry I think I read that at the Red State Watcher, I should have checked it out first.

          Hey we are only human👍🏻I just wanted to give you the info.

            Merry Christmas to you too.
            P.S. I’m glad to be corrected, I hate passing around bad info.

          • All American

            Wishing you all that is blessed…

  • CCTexas

    Yes, yes we should do exactly that. Let us investigate and then throw the whole group onto a small island 1000 miles from anywhere, if we can find one. If not, give them some floaties and put them in the water.

    • CharlieM

      Forget the floaties. Too much expense. Mueller has already spent all the money. Just dump them from 10,000 feet.

    • Cheryl the Deplorable

      we still own Gitmo

      • All American

        Do you think General Mattis was checking GITMO out for future cell occupation?

    and not a word about investigating the actual collusion with Russia by the clintoons….

    • “The” Bobguy

      Follow all that money that just happened to change hands at such convenient times. Only coincidence ??? Don’t think so.

      Heh heh… All I can picture when you said “gull dern” is Walter Huston dancing in ‘Treasure of the Sierra Madre’.

  • kaiju

    There is no comparison. Watergate didn’t involve foreign governments or operatives. We can’t even count the treasonous crimes that the BHO administration was involved in.

    • john

      Not to mention that anything the Republicans tried to do against the Dems called Watergate was done by the Kennedy and Johnson campaigns in 1960 and 64 already.

  • landy fincannon

    Okay, I’m naive enough to think there will actually be a thorough investigation the leads to convictions but I wont be holding my breath

    • Dr Food

      Friendly advice. DO NOT hold your breath!

    • Andrew Moore8

      Oh I don’t know….blue may be a becoming color for you…..lol.

      • landy fincannon

        I’ve had an intervention. I’m fine now.

  • freeaxle

    How about some facts. Usual political double speak?

    • Ja Ja

      Whats good for the goose……. no facts on either side really.

      • Dr Food

        Facts such as changing language in the memo that was released? Or, writing an exoneration letter BEFORE conducting interviews? Or, providing immunity to all parties involved? These are established facts. What else does anyone need to know to understand the entire episode is a mess. And a black eye for the DOJ and FBI.

        • “The” Bobguy

          Don’t forget the lack of testimony under oath. Just interviews with no notes or recorded testimony. Think HRC and Huma for starters.

        • TexasDeplorable1134

          Tarmac meetings in the middle of the night?

        • JOHNNY D

          Also, don’t forget the fact that in a normal investigation investigators interrogate the main subject, Hillary Clinton, first while being recorded in some way. THEN they investigate all others involved to see if there’s any discrepancy in the main subjects statements. Oh, and don’t forget it was the FBI adulterer Peter “Insurance Against Trump” Strzok who interviewed Hillary Clinton. Just saying…

      • Legion

        Oh I’m sorry but that is just not true.. those of us on the Right have more evidence coming in almost daily, those of you who are on left better buckle up because you are about to be buried up to your eyebrows in facts in the days to come.

  • IceColdLogic

    Not many politicians I actually like, but Rand Paul is one of them.

  • Jjcb19

    Time to bury the Communist scum in our government.

    • Jim Samaras

      And the MSM

    “This could be WORSE than Watergate!”……..You Think?

    • FromThe70s

      It is worse.

      • Biform25

        By a factor of 100.

        • kaiju

          1000

        • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

          By a warp factor of 100

      • Chkitout1

        It’s only worse if the guilty parties are prosecuted. So far from Hillary, down to Lois Lerner at the IRS, the FBI, and the GSA, not one person prosecuted. Washington reeks of corruption and not one thing is being done to correct it.

    • FoolIggy

      swamp rats talking swamp rat language as they swim in the swamp with rats of many persuasions!

      shows how AFRAID Americans are of the race card being played!

      king o, the clinton crime family and all their minions pretty much have gotten away with murder (no really, murder.)

      Today, these criminals continue to their backroom operations while being funded by the clandestine deep state members who make their living cheating the American taxpayer.

      dc is filled with power brokers who grow fat & rich from the money they steal for doing little to nothing except subverting the will of the American taxpayer!

      Time to move out of Washington, DC and BREAK THE BACK of the swamp rats and REALLY drain their pond!

      • All American

        Next they eat eachother

        • whoselineisitanyway

          Hitlery’s already started

    • Letmesay

      Watergate was child’s play. ..compare to the DNC/RUSSIAN election collusion. The DNC party is still very confused as to why our president is in the White House and not that old thieving drunk Hillary Blyth.

    • Sonny Shaw

      It’s way passed Watergate!

      • FromThe70s

        Watergate was a curfew violation at an all girls dorm compared to the bank robbery spree that was the Obama misadministration.

    • john

      Nixon was threatened with impeachment for ATTEMPTING to use the IRS as a political weapon. Obama actually did it. Same with using the FBI and CIA to further his party’s political future and go after a domestic political opponent. These crimes are far worse than anything alleged in the Watergate matter.

    • PapawR1 Seasoned Deplorable

      Nixon could only dream of doing what Obama & his administration did. They got busted for breaking into a hotel room & trying to cover it up. Obama & his lackeys used the entire US intelligence apparatus to spy on Trump & anyone even remotely associated with them with a fake dossier paid for by his opponent after saying she was “extremely careless” with top secret & above top secret material that, by US law, is never, ever even supposed to be stored on anything than a secured government server on an open server that any foreign country could hack into in real time without even breaking a sweat let alone all the non-government hackers out there. She then actually had the nerve to suggest that the US should take out Assange with a drone strike on a sovereign nation’s embassy in violation of all international laws & treaties located within the borders of another sovereign nation which would be an act of war against both nations. And the national media suffering from Trump derangement syndrome is condemning him for threatening a preemptive attack on a nation threatening to strike the US with nuclear weapons that even Putin agreed was all the legal justification a nation needed under international law to do so.
