“These are the kind of things that I think some on the left decided to manufacture even before the events occur,” Paul tells Fox Business Network. “I mean, this is part of the playbook of Rahm Emanuel [former White House chief of staff], where they say any crisis should be used to their advantage to further their agenda."
