Rand Paul Tries to Have Abby Martin Fired From RT For Daring To Ask Him Questions

Federal Jack

(WAC NYC) Luke Rudkowski talks with Abby Martin of and RT about U.S. Senator Rand Paul’s attempt to get her arrested and stripped of her press credentials for asking him tough questions in the Capitol building. A week after our video with Abby Martin came out on YouTube, the RT office, where Abby works, got an ominous phone call from the Senate Media Relations Committee. The Committee was acting on behalf of Rand Paul and threatened both Abby and the entire RT news organization. The threats included ambiguous “charges” for violating the rules of the Committee floor, Abby’s possible arrest and the termination of her and the entire office’s press credentials. After a month of meetings and deliberation, the Senate Media Relations office backed down and did not make good on any of their threats.
