Rand Paul: Fake Libertarian Justin Amash is a Fake Libertarian

"The antithesis of libertarianism," Rand Paul says. Indeed, many of our Sensitive Sallies who spring to declaim any untoward police activity are suddenly huge fans of jackbooted authoritarianism.

So long as it's directed at Trump, of course. (Or any Deplorable.)

"I actually think the libertarian position on the investigation is -- you know, libertarians, we've been very, very critical of the intelligence community having too much power, including Congressman Amash has said, you know, really you should have to get a warrant before you get an American's records," Paul said during a short interview with HuffPost.

The Kentucky senator called Mueller's investigation "an abuse of intelligence power consistent with what libertarians have been complaining about for a long time." He also expressed his support for an amendment that Amash supports which would require a "warrant before you target Americans because foreign intelligence warrants have a lower standard."

Don't worry, though. I'm sure that Amash has been told he'd be "well looked after" by the Establishment and corporate class should his smug ass be booted to curb.
