I'm on the back -- -- still ahead tonight my interview with former Vice President Dick Cheney on Benghazi -- more about first says the IRS scandal.
Targeting conservatives continues to unravel the pressing question remains.
What political implications -- all this have now earlier fox learned that the house Ways and Means Committee will hold a hearing on Friday about this very matter.
And joining me now with reaction is Kentucky -- The Rand Paul senator your reaction.
Well you know tomorrow morning I'll introduce a resolution that says.
Why don't we fire the IRS agents that abuse their power to target people for their political activities president says he's gonna do something if they're guilty.
What sounds like this party -- an investigation and no one's been fired.
I'm afraid he's gonna do about as much as he did after Ben Ghazi.
The people who made the decisions not to provide security.
We're transferred temporarily and they still work for the State Department no one was fired.
So it's a bit of faux outrage.
And I and I wonder what is the president -- do so we're gonna demand tomorrow in a senate resolution -- -- that the president.
President if someone did this for political reasons targeted groups.
They should be fired while they didn't do what I mean that's the point it's pretty obvious they've admitted they did it may they came clean about it.
I mean I guess the scariest part of all this senator and look he's a -- -- is all the time.
Tea Party patriot you want to make America a better place to live.
If -- critical of how the government is being run the country's being run you talk about the constitution and the bill -- rights.
I'm surprised your investigator for that matter of but I got a pretty big group of people those who have been critical of the government.
You know what I think of this thing I think of what Lincoln said he says.
You know nearly any man can be tested and maybe need up to adversity but if you really -- to test a man give him power.
I think in that sense the president's failing that test of power because he is extraordinary power he's supposed to be -- -- wise enough to restrain himself.
But he's using the power of government to investigate his enemies he's tapping the phones of the press.
And it turns out last year he signed legislation.
That allows him to detain an American without a trial and send them to Guantanamo -- This sounds like -- president someone drunk on power not cautious about how he matches without the IRS scandal we've got the phone tapping scandal that we're getting into tonight made in and of course bring Ghazi.
I noticed a huge challenge Hillary Clinton to -- debate on on that very issue what's the status of that have you heard from him.
That I haven't heard back yet but you know.
Ambassador Pickering did -- investigation.
And he said well the decisions happened well below the secretary.
That's precisely my point the fact that Hillary Clinton was not engaged when they called for help when they asked for more security from Libya.
It went to her underlings and she's gonna let them take the fall.
Absolutely that should have risen to the secretary.
And that's precisely her mistake and why she should be held accountable -- because it is our job to determine what information gets star.
And the fact that the police for help the plea for more security the plea from colonel would all of these things came -- -- underlings and she says oh I'm not responsible.
Absolutely she's responsible for not listening and telling her under secretaries to give -- information.
You get a lot of press was made about your comment that Obama is working with anti American global as plotting against our constitution.
Your friends over the Washington Post all the liberals over there and I'm sure would love to -- your response.
-- you know the one thing they can't get away from is there is a UN small arms treaty were not making it up President Obama -- sounded and acted in the UN is it be supportive.
It is moving forward.
And we are trying to drum up support and publicity for people to say look.
We do not want to have Americans have to Obey rules of the United Nations it goes against their sovereignty it goes against our constitution.
And you know they can -- -- all they want phenomena continue to keep.
Heating it up for on because they need to know that we're going to Obey rules passed by congress.
But not rules passed by some international body that has no binding on the American people aren't here you go on Iowa shouldn't read anything into you given big speech is an island -- have.
That night I guess it's just a coincidence Sean I don't know why -- keep looking up and I was on my schedule New Hampshire is on my schedule South Carolina.
I'm really just now we all three of -- my delegates ought to go back.
Can I and we are gonna show that I interpret that -- to sell you are considering.
A run for the presidency -- that you'd be open until.
I want the party to be bigger -- wanna be part of the national team that grows the GOV and that means going to a lot of these primary states.
What happens beyond that I don't know.
But I will tell you until we start reaching out to African Americans Hispanics to Asian Americans and saying we are the party of inclusion.
And we are the party that we'll help you to get.
To work your way up the social economic -- when we convince people.
In a bigger broader area I think will begin to win again.
All right senator good to see -- thanks for being with us.
And don't touch that dial when we come back.
