Rand Paul: I Don’t Have Classified Documents in My Home or Office

‘I don’t take any paper when I leave’

EXCERPT:

PAUL: “No. In fact, I have never had a classified document even in my office because, people don’t realize this, but the normal part of classified documents is I go to a secure reading room. They show me the documents, I check them out and check them back in as if I’m in the library. If I take notes about them, I leave the notes in the secure reading room. I don’t take any paper when I leave. That being said, it’s a little bit different being president or vice president or State Department head, secretary of state, because you have more documents. And there really is a problem of overclassifying everything. The menu at the White House is classified. So there are — I’m not kidding. There are problems with this.”
