Earlier today, we reported that Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and his wife were attacked by a mob as they left the Republican National Convention at the White House in the early hours of Friday morning. Now, Senator Paul is speaking out to reveal that the mob was made up of paid demonstrators from out of town, and to call for their immediate arrests.
Paul told “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy that the attack on him and his wife may just be a small part of a major operation that involves “interstate criminal traffic being paid for across state lines.”
“They were yelling threats. They were trying to push the police over to get to me,” Paul said. “They were grabbing at us, and it got worse and worse and worse, and then finally, we decided to make a move. I said, ‘We’ve got to move.'”

Paul went on to say that as the situation escalated, the mob began screaming threats of violence.
“If there’s not reinforcements, we have to try to get to the hotel, which was another block and they were shouting threats to us, to kill us, to hurt us, but also threats, shouting ‘Say her name, Breonna Taylor,’ and it’s like you couldn’t reason with this mob — but I’m actually the author of the Breonna Taylor law to end no-knock raids,” he added.
Taylor is the 26-year-old black woman who was fatally shot by Louisville police during a raid back in March.
“[T]he irony is lost on these idiots that they are trying to kill the person whose actually trying to get rid of no-knock raids and they were shouting and screaming and just, really these people were unhinged, but I can’t tell you how, I’m not sure we would have made it,” Paul acknowledged.

In the end, he credits the police with saving his life, with one officer in particular stepping up to help the senator and his wife.
“[A]s we’re walking sort of surrounded by the police, they’re attempting to push the police over to get to me, so at one point they push a policeman backwards, he stumbles and he’s trying to catch his balance and I catch the back of his flak jacket to stabilize him to make sure he’s OK because he’s our defense,” Paul remembered. “If he’s down, the mob is loose on us, and you’ve seen the pictures of what they do to you.”
“[W]e are thankful we have police, and we’ve got to wake up,” he said. “We can’t have Joe Biden rule the country and have no police. I mean, we can’t walk down the street in D.C. safely now. That’s how bad it is.”
Paul believes that there is something far more sinister going on here than meets the eye:
“My feeling is that there is interstate criminal traffic being paid for across state lines, but you won’t know it unless you arrest them. Otherwise you just think ‘Oh, these are some normal hoodlums from a big city.’ I promise you that at least some of the members and the people who attacked us were not from D.C.
They flew here on a plane with fresh, new clothes and they were paid to be here. It is a crime to do that and it needs to be traced. The FBI needs to investigate, but the only way you can do it is you have to arrest people. And usually we say, ‘Oh, well you didn’t get hurt, so we’re not going to arrest them.’ They were inciting a riot and they would have killed us had the police not been there.”
This serves as a reminder of the dangers that conservatives are facing every day in this country thanks to the increasingly radicalized Left. These days, there’s no telling what Democrats have up their sleeves, and there’s no limit to how far they will go to force their radical agenda on the American people.

Democrats are using the word protest as cover and protection for rioters in their cities. Watch how fast their narrative changes when it is applied to groups with differing views.
If only we had an FBI that was NOT politicised.
Yes, I think there should be a number of major lawsuits over what has happened (or not happened) in these lawless cities. You could probably sue the mayors personally as well, since they deliberately looked the other way and allowed it to go on. That's a form of malicious negligence.
The police need to arrest those who threatened them,,, THEN find out Who is paying them to riot then arrest that person (s). Stop the money Stop the riots !!
You know, the city of Kenosha is at fault for allowing the violence to go on like that. And I believe Rand Paul and his wife would make excellent witnesses for Mr Rittenhouse’s defense. What better witnesses could one have? He could call any one of the victims of BLM and Antifa from any other city as witnesses for his case. It could even create a class action law suit against every city that failed to enforce the law.
The father of the 19 year old who was killed in Seattle by Antifa terrorists has filed a lawsuit for $3 Billion! I wonder, will Hollywood and George Soros pay the victims father for Seattle? George was willing to dedicate a billion dollars to “charitible” causes, maybe he’s willing to come up with a couple billion more to bail Seattle out of the mess he funds?
Check phone records coming out of any soros organizations. I can guarantee that is where the money is coming from . $700.00 a day plus hotel rooms paid for plus food and clothes. I've heard of young adults and teenagers being called to riot and all attorney fees and bond paid if arrested.
Yes! One had a gun and was about to shoot Kyle. Kyle saved his own life
Exactly! Watch it in slow motion on YouTube. It shows Kyle defending himself from being almost shot and killed
Rittenhouse is not to blame. The so-called protesters were already inflicting violence and lawlessness and themselves are VIGILANTES. The fact Rittenhouse came to solve the problem is exactly what you are going to get in these cities when the leadership creates chaos by doing nothing.
These are not protestors. The minute a protestor commits an act of violence, they become a criminal rioter.
