Ultra-liberal talk show host Stephen Colbert interviewed Sen. Rand Paul. Colbert thinks its a global catastrophe that the FISA Memo would be released. Colbert asked Paul if he is also concerned, and Paul put him in his place.
“I’m concerned. My biggest concern is over something that Madison said at the beginning of our country, he said that ‘men are not angels’ and that’s why we need more oversight of government. Our intelligence community has the authority to listen to every phone call. Everyone’s phone calls could be listened to if they wanted to. Everyone in your e-mails can be tracked,” said Paul.
“So I think because men are not angels and women aren’t either, that there can be bias that are into the intelligence community, so we have to be very, very careful that someone gives them a check and balance and that check and a balance should be a judge and a warrant against, you know, I fought with this collection of FISA data that we should go to a judge to get to that,” said Paul.
“I’m concerned that we’re give too much power to a prosecutor who was supposed to be going after Russian collusion,” said Paul.
“So far he’s gotten somewhat over. He recorded General Flynn and then got him to say something inconsistent with what was recorded on the phone call. Think about it from a personal perspective, if I have a thousand phone calls of Stephen Colbert, what I could learn? And then I can interview you, and if you say anything inconsistent with what you said on your private phone calls, I could put you in jail,” said Paul. Bam!
