Rand Paul: America Didn’t Buy Pneumonia Diagnosis Because of Hillary’s ‘Dishonesty’

rand
Wednesday on 800 WVHU’s “The Tom Roten Morning Show,” in referencing Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s medical incident causing her to nearly collapse when leaving the 9/11 memorial service in New York City early and the campaign later revealing Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said, “When they trotted out that diagnosis of pneumonia a couple days after the fact, America just didn’t buy it because they assume the Clintons will probably lie to you anyway.” Paul said, “I think it is troubling when we look at the reports from Clinton—not just the potential health problems that she has—but also the dissembling the dishonesty about it. And when they trotted out that diagnosis of pneumonia couple days after the fact, America just didn’t buy it because they assume the Clintons will probably lie to you anyway. And I think it is concerning really, even if you are her family member and you are very concerned about her health. Maybe they need to look deeper into finding an answer, because people with the pneumonia who are recovering from the pneumonia who are not febrile and sort of fluid don’t go out in 79 degree morning weather and faint.

Rand Paul: ‘Donald Trump Would Be a Better Commander-in-Chief’

rand
Thursday on CNN’s “Wolf,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is more qualified than Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton be commander-in-chief of the United States. Partial transcript as follows: BLITZER: Very quickly, who’s more qualified to be commander in chief?  Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump? PAUL: Without question, I think Hillary Clinton would more likely get us involved in another war in the Middle East. She’s been for sending arms into Syria. From the very beginning, Donald Trump has said that he questioned the Iraq War. So that gives me some consolation that Donald Trump would be a better commander in chief because he at least had the foresight to see that the first—the Iraq War led to a destabilization of the area and Hillary Clinton was on the other side of that.

Rand Paul: Hillary Could Get Five Years in Prison for Lying to Congress About Syrian Weapons

rand
During Thursday’s “O’Reilly Factor,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said that if WikiLeaks has emails that prove Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her State Department were aware weapons were going to Islamic terrorists, Clinton could get five years in prison for lying to Congress. “It’s a felony to lie to Congress. You can get five years in prison. And we can’t continue to say the Clintons are above the law. I do believe that the CIA annex in Benghazi was procuring weapons, some of them to get them away from the jihadists in Libya. But some of it to ferry those weapons through Turkey, into Syria. There have been many, many first hand accounts, The New York Times, London Times, Washington Times have all reported upon this,” Paul told guest host Eric Bolling. He added, “I find it hard to believe that Hillary Clinton, who all the news report have said she was the biggest advocate for arming the Islamic rebels in Syria, many of them turned out to be not only enemies of ours, some of them also turned out to be enemies of Israel.” (h/t The Gateway Pundit) Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Rand Paul: ‘You Realize’ the Convention Rules ‘Haven’t Been Written Yet’

rand
Wednesday on CNN’s “The Lead,” former presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) pointed out that the rules of the Republican convention this July “haven’t been written yet.” Paul said, “It kinda reminds me of when I play golf. I usually like to say we’ll decide what the bet is after we decide what the scores are. When you say we’re going to adhere to the rules, you realize the rules haven’t been written yet. So what is extraordinary, and it is extraordinary, that people by the millions will have voted in a primary and then 110 people will decide how we’re going to make the rules. You can’t say we’re going to obey the rules. The rules have yet to be written. The convention will abide by rules that are written in the first day or two by 110 people. So you could write that a plurality wins or you could write that a majority wins.” He continued, “It’s extraordinary that the rules are written after you have already had the election. It will come down to what the rules are. It is pretty extraordinary. I don’t know what the outcome will be, but it’s very exciting to see what
