Rand Paul: We Will Become a ‘Banana Republic’ If Every President Is Investigated by Special Prosecutors

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he is not a fan of special prosecutors “going after” presidents. Paul said, “It’s very troubling what these special prosecutors can do. I tell people this — if a special prosecutor went after your life for the last 40 years, not you in particular but anybody, I think they could dredge up accusations. So I’m absolutely against it and I think it’s a miscarriage of justice and we should not have going after one person. And if we get this way and if we’re going to prosecute people and put in jail for campaign finance violations, we’ve become a banana republic where every president gets prosecuted, and everybody gets thrown in jail when they’re done with office.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Rand Paul: ‘I Don’t Know What’s Illegal About Trying to Build a Hotel in Russia’

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he does not think then-candidate Donald Trump pursuing a business deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow was illegal. Paul said, “I guess I don’t quite understand it because I don’t know what’s illegal about trying to build a hotel in Russia. So this is pretty common, and I see no problem with someone running for president trying to build a hotel somewhere. Now, if you are asking and saying I will give you something in exchange for letting us build a hotel, that would be wrong. But I haven’t heard any evidence of that. Just trying to build a hotel somewhere, I can’t imagine how that would be criminal.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Rubio on Impeachment: The President Is Not Above the Law

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said if President Donald Trump did direct his lawyer Michael Cohen to commit federal campaign finance felonies, he was not “above the law.” Rubio said, “It’s about our country, what the laws are and no one should be above the law. At the beginning of all of this, I said we deserve the truth. No one is beneath the law meaning everyone is entitled to the protections of it but no one is above it.” Host Jake Tapper asked, “If it is proven that the president directed an aide to commit felonies to influence the election, what should the repercussions be?” Rubio said, “If someone has violated the law the application of the law should be applied to them like it would any other citizen in this country. Obviously, if you’re in a position of great authority like the presidency, that would be the case.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
