"The rumors and the scuttlebutt are that Obama political people were routine leakers to the press of classified information if it could damage Trump. So do I believe it? I have no evidence but do I believe the Obama political operatives could have seen some of these intelligence reports coming back with Trumps name on them or his associates and then leaked them, absolutely I believe it."
---Senator Rand Paul on his personal belief President Obama's political operatives are the ones leaking intelligence reports to the press in order to damage President Trump
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) joined Kilmeade & Friends to discuss why he agrees with the House Freedom Caucus's decision not to support Speaker Paul Ryan's Obamacare replacement bill, his upcoming meeting with the White House to continue negotiations on repealing and replacing Obamacare and the need for republicans to come together and not give up and focus on fixing healthcare for all Americans.
Plus, Senator Paul explained his personal belief that political operatives of President Obama are the ones leaking private intelligence to the press against the Trump administration.
Senator Paul on the need for republicans to come together to successfully repeal and replace Obamacare
(RAND PAUL) We did have some disagreements about what was in the bill, some of it I think is the strategy of trying to put everything in a bill and trying to get everybody to agree to everything. Maybe we should start with a blank slate and start putting on the blank slate things that we agree on. I think there are 5 or 10 things that every republican agrees on, why don't we make a bill, create a bill that has things that have universal agreement and then we quit attacking each other then we also put forward the stuff we disagree on in a replacement bill and if it passes good and if it doesn't pass and democrats don't vote for any of the replacement then the blame goes back to where it absolutely should be because to fix healthcare you are going to need a repeal and a separate replacement bill. The reason you need a separate replacement bill is some of these things just aren't going to be allowed by the budget process.

(RAND PAUL) I think they are honorable and principled men and I think they should be respected for trying to do what is best for the country above all political concerns.
