D.C. Police Won’t Investigate Funding of Mob That Attacked Rand Paul

'My feeling is there is interstate criminal traffic being paid for across states lines...'

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., announced this week that there will be no investigation into who might have funded the rioters who swarmed him and his wife in August after the Republican National Convention.

Paul said on Monday that the U.S. Attorney in Washington, D.C. had decided not to pursue an intensive investigation.

Paul and his wife were leaving the South Lawn of the White House after the president’s closing speech when a mob of rioters surrounded them and threatened them.

D.C. police officers helped Paul and his wife find safety, but at least one officer was injured in the mix.

Paul said the mob demanded that he say the name of Breonna Taylor, a black woman who was shot and killed by police during a raid act her Louisville, Kentucky apartment in March.

Ironically, Paul had literally authored a bill in Taylor’s name that would have banned no-knock raid like the one that is said to have led to her death.

The mob was not just the result of an organic political demonstration, Paul argued.

“My feeling is there is interstate criminal traffic being paid for across states lines,” he explained shortly after the attack. “They flew here on a plane, they all got fresh new clothes, and they were paid to be here. It is a crime to do that and it needs to be traced.”

Journalist Andy Ngo, who tracks Antifa and its movements, confirmed that several protesters flew all the way from Portland the night Paul was attacked.
