Rand Paul Demands Media To Print Whistleblower's Name, The View Co-Hosts Put Him On Blast
During a Donald Trump campaign rally, Rand Paul made a call to the media to publish the name of the whistleblower.
Rand Paul said, “The whistle-blower needs to come before Congress as a material witness because he worked for Joe Biden at the same time Hunter Biden was getting money from corrupt oligarchs. I say tonight to the media, do your job and print his name!”
But if they don't publish his name, he said that he will do it himself.
According to The Hill,
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said on Tuesday that he might disclose the name of a whistleblower whose complaint about President Trump's actions toward Ukraine spurred the House impeachment inquiry.
Asked why he hasn't disclosed the name of the unknown individual, Paul told reporters that he "probably will."
"I'm more than willing to, and I probably will at some point. ... There is no law preventing anybody from saying the name," Paul told reporters.
Paul doubled down on potentially publicly releasing the whistleblower's name during an interview with Fox News's Bret Baier on Tuesday night, saying that he "may" disclose the name.
"There’s nothing that prevents me from saying it now," Paul said.
Of course, the women of The View must have something to talk about and keep their reputation as a liberal tv show so they blasted Paul for his remarks.
Whoopi Goldberg said, “He sounds so crazy. Why does he sound so crazy?”
Joy Behar added, "It’s against the law to reveal the whistle-blower’s identity. And now he’s telling the media to break the law. Why don’t you break the law and then you go to jail, Rand."
Sunny Hostin said, "Yeah. I’m so disgusted because, you know, if Rand Paul were doing this to a witness and saying this about a witness that I had on one of my cases, I would send an FBI agent to his house and I would have him brought in because that’s witness intimidation, punishable by up to 20 years in prison,” Sunny Hostin added. “I would have him brought in. This person is a whistle-blower. He’s intimidating that witness and encouraging people to break the law. How dare he? He’s a sitting senator. He knows better."
And finally, Meghan McCain proving that she's nowhere near being the conservative that she says she is said, "I hate him!"
