Rand Paul Calls For Investigation Into Who Doxxed Republican Senate Judiciary Committee

Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul tweeted: “Yesterday there was an attempt to incite people by publishing the personal information of Senators – including home addresses – endangering them & their families.”

“This should be investigated & the perpetrators punished. There is too much hatred and violence in politics these days.”

Isn’t doxing against the law? Where is the FBI? Oh, that’s right… They are too busy investigating 36-year-old allegations against Judge Kavanaugh.

Sen. Rand Paul called for an investigation Friday to determine and punish who published the personal information of three Republican senators during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who accused him of sexual assault.

Three members of the Senate Judiciary Committee — Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch, both of Utah — had their personal information, including their phone numbers and home addresses, posted on their respective Wikipedia pages shortly after each questioned Kavanaugh at Thursday’s hearing.

The unknown person who published the information was located in the House of Representatives, according to the IP address associated with the user who edited the Wikipedia pages. More

Personal information of Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham, Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch were posted by an unknown person located in the House of Representatives on Thursday during the hearing of Supreme Court Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

The information, which supposedly included home addresses and phone numbers, was posted – or doxxed – on the senators’ respective Wikipedia pages, where users are allowed to update the information at any time. The information has since been removed.

All three targeted senators were members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who questioned both Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh regarding Ford’s allegations that he sexually assaulted her over 36 years ago. The leaking of information occurred sometime after the three lawmakers questioned Kavanaugh. More
