Senator Rand Paul is now calling for the repeal of the Espionage Act after the FBI’s unprecedented raid on Mar-A-Lago.

As Fox News reports:

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is calling for a repeal of the Espionage Act after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided former President Trump’s Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago.

Paul made the announcement in a tweet on Saturday night.

In a post on Truth Social after the warrant was publicly released on Friday, Trump said that the documents taken by federal agents were “all declassified.”

“Number one, it was all declassified. Number two, they didn’t need to ‘seize’ anything. They could have had it anytime they wanted without playing politics and breaking into Mar-a-Lago. It was in secured storage, with an additional lock put on as per their request…” Trump said. “They could have had it anytime they wanted—and that includes LONG ago. ALL THEY HAD TO DO WAS ASK. The bigger problem is, what are they going to do with the 33 million pages of documents, many of which are classified, that President Obama took to Chicago?”

Is it time to finally repeal the Espionage Act or has Paul gone too far this time? Let us know what you think in the comments below.


  1. It is ridiculous to think the espionage act is applicable in todays world. It hasn’t been used since WW 1 and it certainly doesn’t apply to President Trump in any fashion. The theatrics of this administration HAS to be stopped. In November, perhaps the real Americans will show and put them in their place, once and for all!

  2. Rand Paul is a person who thinks before he leaps. This law was written for a
    purpose during World War 1 (?) needed for some situation at that time. Has it even been looked at since? But some one or some organization has pulled it out of mothballs to use it to make citizens think whatever “they” want the
    public to think. If it’s only use is a scare tactic. maybe it should be repealed.
