GOP Sen: Investigating Both Parties For Corruption Will Lead To Self-Destruction
Republican Senator Rand Paul said this week that if President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani is fair game for investigation then the Biden family should be investigated as well.
The Kentucky lawmaker told MSNBC’s Stephanie Rule that authorities “should investigate Hunter Biden’s economic dealings in the Ukraine” in the interest of fairness.
Rule then asked if other children of Washington’s most powerful players should also be investigated, mentioning White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and the president’s daughter, Ivanka.
“Does that mean we should be looking deeper into how Jared Kushner’s family got foreign money for 666 Fifth Avenue? How Ivanka Trump got 13 trademarks from the Chinese government?” Rule asked.
Paul responded: “If we want to go down the road of the politics of self-destruction of everybody, criminalize all politicians on both sides of the aisle and go after their families, yes we can do that.”
“But both sides are doing that,” he said, “and nobody should excuse themselves and say, ‘oh, we’re holier than thou and Trump is evil.'”
