Senator Rand Paul, who is expected to announce a presidential run on April 7, made the case on Fox News tonight that the eventual Republican nominee needs to "go after" the "corruption" of Bill and Hillary Clinton:
"I think what you end up needing from any of us, whoever might be the nominee, is you do want someone who's a fighter," Paul said in response to a question about how the Republican nominee will be ripped to shreds by the mainstream media.
"And the thing is that I think we do need to aggressively go after the Clintons. I think we need to go after their corruption. I think we need to call her out for not being a consistent defender of women's rights when she's willing to take money from a country that actually would imprison a victim of rape.
"So there's a lot of hypocrisy on the Clinton side, the whole Clinton, Inc., enriching themselves. And you can't let that go. And [you're] going to need somebody who will ask the tough questions about why in Benghazi that she didn't provide the security that our ambassador needed. These are really important questions. And we won't win unless we do aggressively combat her and make sure she explains her record as well."
In 1993, Terry McAuliffe authored a memo that would essentially turn the Lincoln Bedroom in the White House into a hotel for top campaign donors. It would "be an excellent opportunity to energize our key people for the upcoming year," McAuliffe wrote. Now McAuliffe, who is currently the governor of Virginia, is defending the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation's acceptance of foreign cash.
Hillary Clinton has an answer to the question of whether America will turn into a monarchy if she -- another Clinton -- is elected president of the United States. "We had two Roosevelts. We had two Adams," she tells the German magazine Der Spiegel.
