Sell-out Rand Paul invites Russian lawmakers to visit them in Washington D.C. during his visit to Moscow: “We agreed and we invited members of the Foreign Affairs Committee of Russia to come to the US to meet with us in Washington.”
Paul is quoted as saying, “I am pleased to announce that we will be continuing this contact.”

Paul reportedly said, “Trump’s hands are tied behind his back, he can’t advocate fro greater cooperation between our countries because all this will look like: ‘Oh, you love Russia!”
“Trump's hands are tied behind his back, he can't advocate for greater cooperation between our countries. Because all this will look like: "Oh, you love Russia!” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said speaking in Moscow at a meeting with Russian lawmakers according to Russian state media.

Paul is well aware that Putin interfered in the 2016 presidential election and has started meddling in the 2018 midterm elections, but he doesn’t seem to care. Like several other Republican lawmakers, who also visited Moscow, Paul is trying to kiss up the Donald Trump, who can’t bring himself to say one critical thing about Vladimir Putin.
Paul’s sellout comes as Sen. John McCain accused him of working for Putin after he objected to a treaty connected to Montenegro. “He has no justification for his objection to having a small nation be part of NATO that is under assault from the Russians,” McCain said from the Senate floor last week. “The senator from Kentucky is now working for Vladimir Putin.”
Reaction on Twitter:
"Sen. Rand Paul" You have to ask yourself- WHY NOW? Why would Rand Paul go to Russia right now? The treason in plain sight with these scoundrels is just alarming.
