Hero Rand Paul Blocks Chuck Schumer and Mazie Hirono’s Resolution Protecting Whistleblowers and Anti-Trump Scammers
THANK YOU RAND PAUL!
Radical Democrat Senators Chuck Schumer and Mazie Hirono pushed a unanimous consent request to support a resolution on the importance of protecting whistleblowers and anti-Trump scammers.
Rand Paul blocked the measure.
Rand Paul is a hero.
ABC News reported:
Sen. Rand Paul, R.-Ky., on Wednesday blocked a resolution to reaffirm whistleblower protections, accusing Democrats of “selective outrage.”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D.-N.Y., and Sen. Mazie Hirono, D.-Hawaii, made a unanimous consent request, meaning all 100 senators must agree with no objections, to adopt a resolution underscoring the importance of protecting whistleblowers.
“I support whistleblowers, and I do think they have a role to play in keeping government accountable … but what we have seen over the last few years is that we have a system that we should continue to refine,” said Paul, as The Hill reported.
Paul suggested that Democrats drop their resolution and instead pass whistleblower legislation that he introduced earlier that day.
