After reports that Hilary Clinton’s former lawyer Michael Sussman was indicted for fabricating a national security threat, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) looked for someone to blame. In a hearing Tuesday, Paul blamed the Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher Wray for using unconstitutional methods in the Durham probe. The Kentucky Senator aimed all his questions during the Senate Homeland Security Committee to Director Wray.

“When we investigate a presidential campaign,” Paul began, “I think it’s important that we realize the potential for bias that exists in the people bringing an investigation forward.”

As a result of the Durham report being brought to the FISA courts, the investigation was able to bypass constitutional procedure. The U.S. Foreign Surveillance Court does not require the Constitution’s fourth amendment application. In other words, the court does not demand for any probable cause of a crime.

“And I think that’s what happened during the investigation that turned out to be untrue of the Russian collusion,” Paul said. “So we had a massive investigation of a presidential campaign. I don’t think enough of us have stepped back to say ‘my goodness should we be using FISA warrants? Should we be using that type of warrant on an American?'” After all, Americans are entitled to their fourth amendment rights.

“What that inspector general report describes by certain FBI personnel I consider to be unacceptable and unrepresentative of the FBI that I see every day,” Wray said. While he worked for the bureau for four years after Sept. 11, he took a break to work in the private sector. then, he joined the bureau again in 2017. Wray went on to say that he believes another botched investigation “could never happen again.” However, he put in over 40 corrective measures to ensure that it won’t.

Yet Paul pushed back, saying the FISA court functions on a “much lower standard, much more open to abuse.” In addition, the court isn’t a public court or judges to protect defendants. His solution is to reserve the court for foreigners as he claims it was meant to be. Otherwise, he predicted any U.S. president could be next.

Sara Carter’s exclusive report with the National Black Farmer’s Association President reveals one critical message for President Biden: “If you want this country to survive, take care of the American farmer.”

Fox News contributor Sara Carter spoke to the President of the National Black Farmer’s Association, John Boyd Jr., from Boydton, Virginia to discuss the inflation crisis. Inflation is hurting farmers and consumers around the country and “the American people” are going to pay the price. “Because this is a crisis” said Boyd.

“The three things that the American farmer can still do better than anywhere else in the world is produce corn, wheat and soybeans. And when you don’t support them, you are taking away the base and the freedom to farm in this country.”

Carter pointedly asked “who is not supporting them?”

“Well right now it’s the Biden administration” he responded.

“If you could speak to President Biden directly, what would you say to him?” Carter followed up.

“I would say ‘you gotta take care of the American farmer in this country. That’s rural America. You can’t turn your back on rural America. If you want this country to survive, take care of the American farmer.”

Pointing to the ground, Boyd gave a heartfelt plea: “this is called land. Land knows no color, land knows no party. Land produces food. And when you take away that ability for the American farmer to produce food, it’s about as low as you can go.”
