With tax reform a done-deal and the wind at his back, Senator Rand Paul came out swinging against the Obama administration.
Paul said he wants answers as to why Mueller’s investigation into alleged Trump-Russia collusion appears so obviously partisan.
“You have the Department of Justice, where you have a high-ranking official whose wife works for the group doing opposition research on Trump being paid for by the Democrat National Committee, that sounds like a lot of high-ranking people colluding to try to prevent Donald Trump from being president,” Paul told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer from the Hill on Thursday.
Paul was referring to last week’s bombshell that top DOJ official Bruce Ohr not only met with key players in the creation of the infamous “Trump dossier,” but his wife Nellie Ohr worked for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that commissioned the unproven document.
“You know, we’ve had this investigation about Russian collusion, maybe we need an investigation about high-ranking Obama officials colluding to try to prevent Trump from being president,” Paul said.
“That’s more serious than even Watergate.”
Paul’s comments come on the heels of the announcement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that a probeis being launched into the FBI’s Uranium One investigation.

Sessions said the DOJ is looking into whether a special counsel would be warranted to investigate the Russian-linked deal that has close ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton.
