Rand Paul Demands FBI Arrest “Paid Anarchists” Who Yelled At Him Outside WH
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) told Fox & Friends that he believes he would have been killed when he and his wife were surrounded by a “mob” as they left the White House were it not for protection from police, according to Fox News.
- The incident occurred as the couple exited the White House following President Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention on Thursday night.
- Fox News noted that no one was harmed but Paul has called on the FBI to make arrests and conduct an investigation.
- “I believe there are going to be people who are involved with the attack on us that actually were paid to come here, are not from Washington, D.C., and are sort of paid to be anarchists,” the senator said.
- He continued: “This is disturbing because really, if you’re inciting a riot that’s a crime, but if you’re paying someone to incite a riot that person needs to go to jail as well.”
If not for the police, Paul said he could've been killed or recovering in the hospital, adding that people followed him into the hotel.
"I truly believe this with every fiber of my being, had they gotten at us they would have gotten us to the ground, we might not have been killed, might just have been injured by being kicked in the head, or kicked in the stomach until we were senseless," he explained.
