    Default Rand Paul: If Rice’s Snooping Wasn’t Political…Why Wasn’t FBI Involved?

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) believes Susan Rice did not sufficiently answer Andrea Mitchell’s questions on Tuesday. When the MSNBC anchor pressed the former national security adviser over whether she spied on the Trump transition team and unmasked their names for political purposes, Rice said surveillance was well within her job description.

    “We only do it to protect the American people and to do our jobs," she told Mitchell, adding she never “leaked nothing to nobody.”

    “I don’t think she answered the question,” Paul said on Fox News Wednesday.

    If it wasn’t for political reasons and she was really seeking the information for foreign intelligence reasons, Paul wondered, then why wasn’t the FBI involved?

    He had more questions.

    “Did the president direct you to eavesdrop and sift through intelligence?” Paul asked, wondering if President Obama was behind the privacy breach.

    Paul, who is known as a champion for Americans’ privacy, said the situation raises too many constitutional alarm bells.

    “We need to protect American privacy,” he said. “We can’t let political partisans search through databases.”

    Paul is demanding Rice testify in front of a grand jury and explain why her actions weren’t political.
    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    Was it a double or a triple though? I notice the word "never" was not included in the quotation marks.
