The evidence is clear and the verdict is in.
“This is Vice President Biden using the spying powers of the United States to go after a political opponent. He’s caught red-handed here,” declared Senator Rand Paul.
Paul was referring to documents newly-declassified by acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell which expose Biden as one of a few top Obama officials who “may have received intelligence from unmasking requests targeting former Trump national security advisor Mike Flynn.”

“I think we need to get to the bottom of this,” said Sen. Paul. “I think the first thing is to interview, under oath, [Acting] Director of National Intelligence [Grenell] and get to the bottom of what goes on with unmasking. How unusual is this that the entire upper echelon — individually it wasn’t just one request for this, there were dozens of requests. Almost everyone in President Obama’s top circle wanted to see this.”
