Only moments ago, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) tweeted a copy of a letter he sent yesterday to AG Barr and acting DNI Richard Grenell, asking for the names of those involved in the unmasking of Trump’s then-NSA General Flynn. Senator Paul tweeted that he received a response to his request today. In his tweet, Paul said that he was shocked to see Joe Biden’s name, among many others, who knew! Senator Paul ended by saying that he is inviting DNI Grenell to testify next week in the Senate.
Speaking to members of the press, Senator Paul added that he wanted to hear testimony from other officials on the list, including James Comey and James Clapper.
Yesterday I wrote to DNI @RichardGrenell requesting the names of those who were involved in Gen Flynn’s unmasking. Today I received the shocking reply that @JoeBiden and many others knew! What did President Obama know? I am inviting DNI Grenell to testify next week in the Senate pic.twitter.com/IHpGjeVWwM

Here is a copy of the response Senator Paul received with the names he requested:
During a press conference only moments ago, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) went off on Joe Biden when a reporter asked a question from Fox News, about how what impact the news about Joe Biden’s campaign. Senator Paul responded, “Every reporter in the country now needs to ask a legitimate question. He needs to come out of hibernation and they need to ask Vice President Biden, ‘What kind of person eavesdrops? Is that something that we think is a legitimate function of government—to eavesdrop on your opponents without a warrant—to illegally unmask them and listen to their conversations?'” No, from the very beginning, General Flynn has been treated very poorly. A guy who served 33 years, has been treated very poorly.
Paul continued, “This is an abuse of power that should not rest, and it should make every American worry that if Vice President Biden was elevated to the top office, is this the type of power he would use again.”
Senator Paul warned, “And the other side needs to realize, this is exactly what they were accusing President Trump of, but he was actually acquitted on that charge. They have now found that Vice President Biden is guilty of using government to go after a political opponent.”
"Vice President Biden is guilty of using government to go after a political opponent."

Yesterday, we wrote about how the feckless Senator Lindsey Graham doesn’t have any plans to call on former President Biden to testify on the Obamagate scandal. Senator Rand Paul is no Lindsey Graham.
The gloves are coming off…
