According to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), it’s clear Biden used the government to go after a political opponent.
“If Vice President Biden and the president’s inner circle of advisers were all listening to a senior Trump administration adviser’s private conversation, this would amount to a serious abuse of power,” stated Paul. “The only question that remains is what did President Obama know and when did he know it?”
