Sen. Rand Paul in NH: Too early for judgments in IRS probe

CONCORD _ U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-KY, says he wants to hear what unfolds in the investigation into the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups before deciding who is responsible and what kind of punishment is appropriate.


Paul was asked about the IRS and several other issues in a brief conference with reporters before speaking at an event for the New Hampshire Republican State Committee. GOP national Chairman Reince Priebus joined Paul in headlining the Liberty Dinner fundraiser.


The Kentucky senator said it's too early in the IRS investigation for judgements.


"I think we need to figure out the truth of what happened before we go anywhere else," Paul said.


Paul also said he was concerned about the Justice Department obtaining telephone records from Associated Press reporters and editors without seeking a warrant.


"I think there should be a very high bar for going after records of the media," Paul said.
