U.S. Capitol Police have arrested a man accused of threatening to kill Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and his family. The Republican lawmaker acknowledged the threat during a visit to Grayson County on Monday.
Rand Paul still says he will vote against the confirmation of Gina Haspel to be the next director of the CIA, citing her role in the intelligence agency’s brutal interrogation program more than a decade ago.
Now that Congress is back in session, lawmakers must finish the work they punted at the end of the year, including a new spending bill. A Republican lawmaker from Kentucky says he won’t vote for a budget that adds to the deficit.
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., took to social media to poke fun at his political colleagues including an "airing of grievances" about government waste, President Trump, Fox News and Washington politics overall in a tweetstorm on Saturday.
