Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said on Wednesday that he believes lawmakers should turn their focus to investigating former President Obama and the role he could have played in the almost two-year-long Russia investigation that wrapped up just days ago.
Paul tweeted, “I agree with @kimguilfoyle Time for Congress to investigate. What did President Obama know and when? How did this hoax go on for so long unabated?”

The senator’s comment was in response to a tweet by former Fox News host and girlfriend of the first son, Donald Trump Jr., Kimberly Guilfoyle.

Guilfoyle linked to an opinion piece that she penned that was published by The Daily Caller in which she highlights what she believes lawmakers should be paying attention to while they conduct their investigations.

“The results are in: for the past two years the president has been investigated for a crime that never happened,” Guilfoyle said.

“That’s the conclusion the special counsel came to after an investigation that lasted two years, spent over $25 million, deployed 59 lawyers and investigators, issued 2,800 subpoenas, interviewed 500 witnesses, and executed 500 search warrants and wiretaps,” the former Fox host went on.

“Here’s the obvious question: If such a thorough investigation found no evidence, what was the basis for the FBI launching its investigation in the first place?” Guilfoyle questioned

The girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., Guilfoyle ha had a front row seat to much of the investigation and said that she believes, “those responsible must be held accountable.”

“House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler insists he must continue investigating in order to protect the rule of law and ‘the institutions we depend on for our democratic form of government.’”

“If Chairman Nadler is serious about protecting American rule of law, there’s plenty for him to investigate,” Guilfoyle challenged.

“He should start by looking into the birth of the ‘Russia collusion’ ghost story that has done incalculable harm to our country, “the institutions we depend on for our democratic form of government” and to the Americans caught up in the investigations.

“Jerry Nadler should investigate why the Obama Justice Department, FBI and intelligence agencies were spying on the administration’s political opponents in the first place.

“He should ask who first ordered the investigation, who approved it, and why the FBI had an undercover informant contact Trump campaign personnel.
“Obama reportedly was informed by the FBI in 2016 that the bureau was investigating Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 election, but, according to former Vice President Biden’s telling, Obama was warned against going public with the investigation by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

“Obama, during his tenure, said he confronted Russian President Vladimir Putin about Russian interference in the 2016 election. The former president, according to The New York Times, said he told Putin “to cut it out, there were going to be serious consequences if he did not.”

Guilfoyle ended her article with this admonition:

“Today, we are confronted with the very real possibility unelected operatives at the highest levels of our government conspired to override the will of the American people and overthrow the elected president,” Guilfoyle said.

“These are the charges Nadler needs to investigate.

“If Jerry Nadler won’t investigate these charges, someone must.

“Those responsible for misleading our country need to be held accountable.”
