Sen. Rand Paul Aims To Repeal Espionage Act To Save Trump

“The Espionage Act was abused from the beginning to jail dissenters of WWI. It is long past time to repeal this egregious affront to the 1st Amendment,” tweeted Paul:

Twitter critics were amused by Paul’s strategy of exonerating someone like Trump by simply eliminating the law they’re suspected of breaking, especially given that Trump himself signed a law in 2018 making it a felony to mishandle classified documents.

The former president is now being investigated for possibly violating the Espionage Act, obstruction and removing or destroying records.
