Rand Paul slaps Adam Schiff with a wake-up call that sounds just like Barack Obama

Senator Rand Paul, on ABC's "This Week" Sunday morning, kneecapped Rep. Adam Schiff, pointing out what a "hypocrite" he is regarding his political flip-flop on the subject of executive privilege.

Schiff preceded Paul on the program. Too bad they were not face-to-face that could have made for some prime viewing. The California Democrat, unbelievably the House Intelligence Committee chairman, told host George Stephanopoulos that President Trump's use of executive privilege over the Mueller report was wrong.

Stephanopoulos asked him what the differences are between President Obama's use of executive privilege, which Schiff enthusiastically defended, and Trump's which he opposes.

"There are categorical differences. So first, the Obama administration made dozens of witnesses available to the Congress, provided numerous thousands of documents. But here, the Trump administration has decided to say a blanket no; no to any kind of oversight whatsoever, no witnesses, no documents, no nothing, claiming executive privilege over things that it knows there is no basis for," Schiff said.

During Senator Paul's at-bat, a clip of Schiff's comments were played and he was asked to respond.

"I think the clip you played of Adam Schiff showed it accurately," said Paul. "He's a hypocrite, you know, he was against he was all for President Obama using executive privilege and now he's against this president.

"The bottom line is we spent $35 million investigating the president. Their conclusion was there was no underlying crime. This whole kibitzing about 'oh well, maybe he obstructed justice to try to hide an investigation about something he didn't do.'

"This is absurd and the American people know it, people have gone to their corners on it, but it's important to remember that this was politically motivated from the very beginning, from a political document from the Hillary Clinton campaign. And that should be investigated because we cannot allow the incumbent parties to weaponize the intelligence communities to spy on Americans or on political candidates or potentially their donors. So there is a real danger to this and it is a constitutional one, but the Democrats have it completely upside down."

I can't pretend I "always" agree with Rand Paul. But he definitely nailed this one perfectly.

Am I the only noticing (And dismayed by) that fact that, more and more often (and on BOTH sides), so-called "News" articles are being written in the style of propaganda pieces?

Headline: Rand Paul slaps Adam Schiff with a wake-up call that sounds just like Barack Obama.

Seriously: Is this a headline to a legit news story? Or is this more like one pro wrestler trash-talking to another before a match?


First Line: Senator Rand Paul, on ABC's "This Week" Sunday morning, kneecapped Rep. Adam Schiff, pointing out what a "hypocrite" he is regarding his political flip-flop on the subject of executive privilege.

Meh. More propaganda-like imagery. WTF ever happened to presenting, in my best Sgt. Friday voice, "Just the facts, Ma'am" and the letting the reader/viewer/listener decide???

And WTF ever happened to Journalism in this country? Especially amongst us conservatives? HOW IS IT that we've gone from literate standard-bearers like William F Buckley to, apparently these days, Howie Carr types?

Journalism is now entertainment. It has been since Ronald Reagan. They are just more obvious about it nowadays.

ETA: It will probably devolve further into clickbait.

Rand Paul drops poos that are smarter than Schiff. That's the fact, and oh by the way he did kneecap him with those facts. The problem is the Democrats can bandy around town making idiotic claims and we are powerless to stop them. They need a good thrashing.
