Sen. Rand Paul just said what most Americans were thinking, it’s time for Susan Rice to testify before Congress. This isn’t something to take lightly.
Paul argued that reforms need to be made to prevent individuals from being blackmailed on personal aspects of their lives through unmasking.
“If it is allowed, we shouldn’t be allowing it, but I don’t think should just discount how big a deal it is that Susan Rice was looking at these. And she needs to be asked, ‘Did President Obama ask her to do this? Was this a directive from President Obama? I think she should testify under oath on this.
“The law says you can’t reverse target people, but how would you know that once you get inside the brain and the people that are unmasking people. So, what if I decided to unmask and I’m there and I only unmask the conversations of my Democrat opponents — shouldn’t there be more restrictions for unmasking people in the political process?”
Paul claims our constitutional rights are in jeopardy by the current system. And if that’s the case, Rice could be looking at some major violations.
