Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Thursday said it’s time to investigate into Obama-era FBI and Justice Department officials who may have conspired to prevent the election of President Donald Trump.
“Time to investigate high ranking Obama government officials who might have colluded to prevent the election of @realDonaldTrump! This could be WORSE than Watergate!” Paul tweeted on Thursday morning.
On “America’s Newsroom,” Paul noted that FBI official Peter Strzok was kicked off Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe after his anti-Trump text messages became public.
Paul noted that Strzok, who was also a crucial player in the Hillary Clinton email investigation, in one text message appeared to reference FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and some kind of “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency.
He added there are also serious questions about the connections between the U.S. Justice Department and Fusion GPS, which was paid by the Clinton campaign and the DNC to create a dossier on alleged Trump-Russia ties.
“We’ve had this investigation about Russian collusion, maybe we need an investigation about high-ranking Obama officials colluding to try to prevent Trump from being president,” Paul stated. “That’s more serious than even Watergate.”
