Sanders: For the 1,000th Time, We Have 'No Intentions' of Firing Bob Mueller

Gaetz: Time for Mueller to Show Collusion Evidence or End the Investigation

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Thursday said it's time for an investigation into Obama-era FBI and Justice Department officials who might have colluded to prevent the election of President Donald Trump.

“Time to investigate high ranking Obama government officials who might have colluded to prevent the election of @realDonaldTrump! This could be WORSE than Watergate!” Paul tweeted Thursday morning.

On "America's Newsroom," Paul pointed out that FBI official Peter Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe after his anti-Trump text messages surfaced.

Paul noted that Strzok, who was also a key player in the Hillary Clinton email investigation, in one text message seemed to reference FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and an “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency.

He added there are also questions about the connections between the Justice Department and Fusion GPS, which was paid by the Clinton campaign and the DNC to produce a dossier on alleged Trump-Russia ties.

“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.”
