Ron Paul: Trump Impeachment Inquiry is a ‘Joke’ Based on Flagrant Abuse of Whistleblower Law

Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul, who has been a frequent critic of President Donald Trump’s policies, jumped to his defense over the impeachment inquiry launched against him by Democratic Party officials and the deep state.

“They’re not doing it really like an impeachment. This is not the way the impeachment process worked in the past… In a way, this has turned into a joke,” Paul explained during an episode of his liberty report released on Thursday.

Paul and his co-host Daniel McAdams discussed the asinine conspiracy that the deep state and the Democrats have perpetrated in order to railroad Trump, and how they are abusing whistleblower protection laws to do so.

“The whistleblower law was intended to protect people who wanted to get the truth out, would tell the truth, and they shouldn’t have to receive penalties for that,” Paul said, referencing NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden as an example.

Paul noted that legitimate whistleblowers like Snowden do not receive protection under the law, and it is used as a means for the deep state to further exert their anti-democratic control.

“What happened to the principle that’s been in our history for a long time that you had a right in the Constitution to face your accuser? He’s not even allowed to face his accuser,” Paul said about the railroading that is happening to Trump.

The impeachment inquiry is based off of an anonymous complaint filled by a CIA whistleblower who consorted with the staff of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) beforehand. The whistleblower claimed Trump had conducted an inappropriate correspondence with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky without first hand knowledge of their talks, and federal rules were changed to permit this sort of complaint after it was filed.

All of these facts demonstrate to Paul that the fix is in. He believes that the whistleblower law should be removed because it does nothing to promote truth and justice within the corrupt system.

“It hasn’t worked, ya know. It’s actually used perversely… I would say get rid of that law. The misinterpretation is bad,” Paul said.

The entire discussion can be seen here:

The Libertarian Party, chaired by Nicholas Sarwark, has come out against Dr. Paul’s analysis, arguing that the attempted coup by the Democratic Party and deep state against Trump is fair and just.

Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI), another self-styled libertarian, disagrees with Dr. Paul’s analysis as well. He has emerged as one of the biggest impeachment cheerleaders in Washington D.C.

The libertarian split between opponents of bureaucratic overreach like Dr. Paul, Sen. Rand Paul and Rep. Thomas Massie and proponents of unaccountable federal power such as Amash and Sarwark has grown to define the movement in recent months.
