Rand Gives His Thoughts On Current Political Climate
Article from The Hill by Jordain Carney.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday said lawmakers should tamp down their political rhetoric, warning that otherwise it could lead to violence.
Paul, during an interview with a Kentucky radio station, said he was concerned that there “is going to be an assassination,” after a few tense weeks around the Capitol because of the Supreme Court fight.
“I really worry that someone is going to be killed and that those who are ratcheting up the conversation … they have to realize that they bear some responsibility if this elevates to violence,” Paul said.
Paul recounted the June 2017 shooting at a practice session for the Congressional Baseball Game, where a gunman shot five people, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise(R-La.). The Kentucky Republican also recalled how his neighbor assaulted him late last year.
