Rand Paul won’t stop talking about Bill Clinton’s “predatory behavior,” and that’s quite alright with Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus.

Priebus said Monday on MSNBC that the Monica Lewinsky scandal is fair game when it comes to evaluating Hillary Clinton’s potential presidential bid.

“I think everything’s on the table,” Priebus told Andrea Mitchell.

“I don’t see how someone just gets a free pass on anything. I mean, especially in today’s politics. So, I think we’re going to have a truckload of opposition research on Hillary Clinton and some things may be old and some things might be new. But I think everything is at stake when you’re talking about the leader of the free world and who we’re going to give the keys to run the United States of America.”

Hillary Clinton, Priebus added, “provides a lot of opportunity” for Republicans.

It’s been a blast to the past listening to Paul as of late. After calling former Bill Clinton a “serial philanderer” late last month, Paul said Democrats should return any money that the 42nd president helped raise on their behalf.
