Rand Paul: “Source” Says Obama Admin Sent Spies to “Entrap Trump Officials”
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul (R) said that a source informed him that the Obama intelligence community sent spies into the Trump campaign to try to “entrap Trump officials.”
Speaking to Fox and Friends this morning, the Senator said, “Well my source tells me that the intelligence community, Obama’s intelligence community, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, they were frustrated because they had this Russian dossier but no one believed it was real. It wasn’t verifiable, they couldn’t get anything out of it, so they sent spies into the Trump campaign, they tried to entrap Trump officials to admit they were working for Russia, that wasn’t working.”
Paul explained that the officials were “frustrated” that media outlets wouldn’t take the dossier seriously because of its salacious and unverifiable content, so they ultimately attached it to President Obama’s intelligence report.
The Senator called the dossier situation a “big circle” explaining, “They’ve had the dossier for months and months, so when John McCain is given the dossier its given to him by people who may have leaked it from our government to John McCain so John McCain could give it back to the FBI…”
Yesterday, Paul tweeted an explosive allegation, claiming his source told him former CIA Director John Brennan “insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report…Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress ASAP.”
BREAKING: A high-level source tells me it was Brennan who insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report… Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress ASAP.
