Rand Paul Warns Political Assassinations Could Rise in US: ‘Someone is Going to be Killed’ (Mediaite)  

Amid the heightened politicized climate caused by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Republican Senator Rand Paulof Kentucky said today that he worries about politically motivated killings rising in the US.

“I really worry that someone is going to be killed and that those who are ratcheting up the conversation,” Paul said during an interview with Kentucky radio host Leland Conway. “They have to realize that they bear some responsibility if this elevates to violence.”

The senator pointed back to the incident last summer in-which Republican lawmakers, including Paul, were targeted by a gunman while practicing at an Alexandria, Virginia baseball field, as well as the time his neighbor assaulted him at his home in Kentucky.
