PostSubject: Rand Paul blasts ‘deep state’ for shutting him out of CIA briefing   Tue Dec 04, 2018 9:30 pm

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) lashed out at the “deep state” Tuesday for excluding him and other senators from a briefing with CIA Director Gina Haspel on the killing of Jamal Khashoggi.
The briefing was limited to a select group of lawmakers, including leaders of the Senate’s Armed Services Committee, Foreign Relations Committee and Intelligence Committee.



The meeting comes after bipartisan outrage that Haspel didn’t attend an administration briefing for senators last week on Khashoggi's killing, which took place at the Saudi Arabian Consulate in Turkey earlier this year.
Haspel was also sent to Capitol Hill as part of a bid to stave off a Senate vote on whether to pull U.S. support for Saudi-backed forces in Yemen.
Paul said that the exclusion of most senators was undemocratic and that Haspel should have testified before all senators.
“There are eight people in Congress who get briefings on intelligence,” Paul said. “That is not democracy. That is not democratic representation nor is it democratic oversight.

Paul added that he only heard about the meeting from media reports.

“I think the very definition of the deep state is when the intelligence communities withhold information from Congress,” he said.
