      Notice how different they are outside of the elections. As if they were some appointed gatekeepers of the electoral process.

      Sen. Rand Paul on Sunday sought to justify Russia's interference in America's 2016 presidential race, claiming that all countries meddle in foreign elections.

      “I think really we mistake our response if we think it's about accountability from the Russians. They’re another country, they're going to spy on us," Paul said on CNN's "State of the Union," a day before President Donald Trump's scheduled summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

      “We’re going to do the same," Paul added.

      Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Friday announced special counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of 12 Russian military officials for hacking the Democratic National Committee in 2016.

      But Paul maintained such cyber-intrusions into other countries' elections were common on the world stage, suggesting the United States — while not "morally equivalent" to Russia — provoked the Kremlin's stealth attacks.

      “We all do it. What we need to do is make sure our electoral process is protected," Paul said. “They’re not going to admit it in the same way we’re not going to admit we were involved in the Ukrainian elections or the Russian elections.”

      Paul also blamed former President Barack Obama for not doing more to halt Moscow's aggression, echoing a series of tweets from Trump on Saturday.

      “I wish President Obama had been more aggressive in pursuing it," Paul said.

      Rand can't come out and say it, but I'm sure we do more than Russia when it comes to election interference. Maybe Russia bought a few ads. Maybe they leaked emails that showed Hillary Clinton to be the conniving bit*h we already knew she was.

      The CIA has done far more nefarious things to influence election outcomes, even inciting coups when the results still don't go our way. When Russia reaches that level, wake me up.

      Over in the Fox & Friends clip, Rand talks about his plans to visit Russia with the Cato Institute in August. Fantastic.

      His general line of reasoning trying to make peace with Russia instead of constantly provoking is great. In this interview with Tapper, though, Tapper seemed to put Rand on his heels, when Tapper's cold war positioning was clearly just more of the same cold war mentality.
