Rand Paul Calls on Trump to Sue Chuck Schumer for Defamation
Kentucky Republican senator snaps as he blasts anti-Trump Democrat
Republican Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) snapped during a Tuesday interview in response to comments made by Democratic Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer.
Speaking to Fox News, Kentucky Senator Paul blasted Schumer, saying President Donald Trump should sue the New York Democrat for allegations he made about his children.
Paul was responding to baseless accusations from Schumer that President Trump's children are illegally making money from their father's presidency.
“You know, I’m offended and shocked that Schumer would be so scurrilous as to accuse the president and his children of making money illegally off of politics when the only people we know have made money off of this have been Hunter Biden and Joe Biden,” Sen. Paul told Fox News.
Paul suggested that Schumer was deflected from the mounting evidence that Hunter Biden made a fortune from his father's time in office as vice president.

“So Hunter Biden makes a million dollars a year, that’s documented, but Schumer simply creates and makes up and says, ‘Oh, maybe the president’s kids are making money,’" Paul Continued.
"John Bolton is making money as we speak. He has probably already gotten the several million-dollar advance for this book.
"He’s making money by testifying against the president.”
“The only people we know who have actually made money?
"Hunter Biden and now John Bolton.
"And they’re not objective–John Bolton is not objective in any way now that he’s cashing million-dollar checks.
"To have Schumer come up and say out of the blue, ‘Maybe the president’s kids are making money,’ with no evidence at all, that’s defamation and they ought to sue him.”
Schumer did indeed suggest, without evidence, that President Trump’s family may have been making money overseas.
“There is nothing in the record about the president’s kids,” Paul also said.
“So Schumer has just created this whole thing out of whole cloth and said, ‘Oh, why don’t we go after the president’s kids?’
"We don’t know yet whether or not the president’s dealings with the Chinese president have something to do with the Trumps making money.’
"He just made it up! Completely made it up! That’s defamation of character and he ought to go to court and be sued for it.”
Paul has been a staunch defender of the president throughout the impeachment proceedings.
He has said that he may force a vote to have Hunter Biden testify, and also suggested he may out the CIA whistleblower himself.
Elsewhere on Tuesday, further allegations of corruption emerged against a different Biden family member.
Joe Biden's sister, Valerie Biden Owens, allegedly funneled millions of dollars from her brother's presidential campaigns to her own consulting company, a bombshell new report has revealed.
Valerie Biden Owens served as the campaign manager for Joe's past presidential runs and oversaw funds for “Citizens for Biden” and “Biden for President Inc.”
During her brother’s 2008 presidential bid alone, Valerie directed $2.5 million to her own consultancy firm from “Citizens for Biden” and “Biden for President Inc.”
The money trail was uncovered in a damning new report by Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer.
According to Schweizer, Biden’s political tenure has largely resulted in little-known financial benefits for his family.
