GOP Senator Rand Paul has come to President Trump's defense amid calls for impeachment from Libertarian-leaning Rep Justin Amash.

According to Fox News:

Sen. Rand Paul does not agree with Rep. Justin Amash - a fellow libertarian Republican - that the House of Representatives should move forward with the impeachment of President Trump.

Amash, R-Mich., made headlines in recent weeks for his lengthy Twitter threads laying out his argument for impeachment based on the Mueller report.

...

Paul, R-Ky., said on "America's Newsroom" Thursday that he takes the opposite view from Amash, seeing the origins of the Russia investigation as being "un-libertarian."

"I think they took this great power we entrusted with them to spy on foreigners and they directed it against Americans for partisan reasons. So, I think this has to be investigated and I think it’s wrong for any Republican to think, 'Oh gosh, this is a legitimate investigation.' I think it’s a very partisan investigation."

Paul specifically named Brenna, Comey, and Clapper as government officials he believes abused they surveillance power over the American people.
