Rand Paul Calls For Probe Into Four Dem Senators Over Threats To Ukraine


Rand Paul called for a probe of four Democrats over the Ukraine letter.

“If you’re going to condemn Trump you need to condemn the Democrat senators. It shouldn’t be just one-sided. 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.”

Paul’s remarks about the four Democratic Senators who wrote a threatening letter to Ukraine comes from an article in The Washington Post which noted that three Democratic Senators – Sens. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) and Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) – “wrote a letter to Ukraine’s prosecutor general, Yuriy Lutsenko, expressing concern at the closing of four investigations they said were critical to the Mueller probe.”

“In the letter, they implied that their support for U.S. assistance to Ukraine was at stake,” the article continued. “Describing themselves as ‘strong advocates for a robust and close relationship with Ukraine,’ the Democratic senators declared, ‘We have supported [the] capacity-building process and are disappointed that some in Kyiv appear to have cast aside these [democratic] principles to avoid the ire of President Trump,’ before demanding Lutsenko ‘reverse course and halt any efforts to impede cooperation with this important investigation.’”

The fourth Democratic senator to whom Paul was referring was Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy.

In September, The Hill’s John Solomon wrote that Murphy “delivered a pointed message to Ukraine’s new president, Volodymyr Zelensky” that “Ukraine currently enjoyed bipartisan support for its U.S. aid but that could be jeopardized if the new president acquiesced to requests by President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani to investigate past corruption allegations involving Americans, including former Vice President Joe Biden’s family.”  More

Trump didn’t break the law but these four Congressmen made the president’s phone call look like a casual chat. They should all be brought to task for this little stunt. The left always accuses us of actually doing what they have done.
