Rand Paul Says “there could be a smoking gun,” thinks Obama knew about Biden-Ukraine dealings

Appearing on Fox News, Senator Rand Paul reacted to the new news that in a letter to the National Archives, former president Barack Obama blasted the Senate GOP investigation into Joe Biden and alleged Ukrainian election interference, calling it an effort to “to give credence to a Russian disinformation campaign.”

Ed Henry:

Why do you think Barack Obama is weighing in, do you fear there’s something they’re trying to hide here?

Rand Paul:

Yeah, there’s been rumors for quite a while that people within the Obama Administration knew about the corruption problems with Hunter Biden, that they warned the vice president and maybe even the president about it.

I think that there could be a smoking gun, that there’s actually a record of some of these complaints that were going on at the time.

There have been some articles written, quoting unnamed sources saying that there were some assistants and people around Joe Biden at the time, saying this Hunter Biden thing looks bad and you should put a stop to it. And they never did.

But I think President Obama knew about this, so it’s not surprising to me that he would try to keep a lid on it and not let any records come to the public.
