Rand Paul: Trump Jr. subpoena a 'real travesty of justice'
The Hill, May 12, 2019

Sen. Rand Paul  (R-Ky.) slammed the Senate Intelligence Committee for subpoenaing Donald Trump Jr. for further testimony in its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, suggesting it could end up being a perjury trap.

“I think it’s a real travesty of justice. I think it’s very unfair to the president and the president‘s family on this. Mueller spend $35 million and two years, and the president was cleared. For the Senate to be calling up the president’s son and putting him in jeopardy by bringing him in and grilling him… I think it’s really a tragedy,” Paul said Sunday on John Catsimatidis’ radio show.

“This is not a friendly maneuver. This is an adversarial maneuver to bring him in under oath. And the Democrats will try to trip him up and get him to make some kind of mistake. From a Democrat perspective this is a chance to go after the Trump family and try to trick them into some kind of misstatement that then [Trump Jr.] is prosecuted for,” he added.

I don't follow a whole lot of Republicans, @Right_in_Virginia, but I do see a lot of outspoken ones:

Ok, since D talking points change with the weather, y’all’s current position is that “the FBI” made the decision?  So it would be different if Lynch signed off?  Brennan?  Biden?  Obama?  Or do you not care which political operatives may have ordered the surveillance of the GOP?

Seriously?  You don’t get the difference between the FBI launching a counter- intelligence investigation, and a President ordering DOJ to investigate his opponent?  Did you go to class while you were in law school? https://twitter.com/tedcruz/status/1127264074339901440

Irony much?  Consider this exact tweet, with “Trump” replacing “Biden.”  That describes the exact state of affairs w/ the Obama Admin launching investigations on Trump. Did you ask these Qs then?  Have you since?  Why not? #LawEnforcementShouldntBePoliticized

If he can do this to @JoeBiden, he can do this to any other Democrat.

If he can do this to any Democrat, he can do this to any Republican in Trump's way.…

The Russia investigation is over. After 2 years of Dem & media hysteria, after millions of dollars, after 2800 subpoenas, the Mueller Report found NO collusion. There’s no need for another subpoena for @DonaldJTrumpJr It’s time to move on & focus on issues Americans care about.

What I have accumulated here is absolutely shocking upon the realization that #Mueller's disreputable, twisted history speaks to the character of the man placed in a position to attempt to legalize a coup against a lawfully-elected President. DOWNLOAD:
