(Slay News) – Republican Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has shredded Democrats and their allies in the liberal media who spread the false narrative that Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia.
Speaking during an appearance on Newsmax, Paul jokingly called for an investigation into Russian ties with environmentalists.
“Maybe we should get a special prosecutor,” Paul said.
“Maybe we need to spend about $100 million investigating Putin’s contributions to the green alarmists in our country.”
“I don’t know if it’s true,” Paul added.
“But can you imagine, there’s probably more truth to that than any of the BS they put forward about trying to connect the Russians to the Trump campaign.”

Environmental groups opposed the Keystone XL pipeline and are still pushing for restrictions on oil and gas drilling, despite the ongoing energy crisis.
Many environmentalists also opposed hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, claiming it contributed to climate change and harmed water supplies.
Critics say these efforts, coupled with current Biden administration policies, contributed to high oil and gas prices, which means more revenue for the Russian government.
“From Day 1, Biden and the Democrats’ actions and statements pushed gasoline prices steadily higher,” conservative commentator Deroy Merdock recently wrote in the New York Post.
There is currently no evidence that American environmentalists are in cahoots with the Kremlin.
Likewise, the narrative that President Donald Trump’s campaign was in league with Russian President Vladimir Putin has also been proven to be false.
