Ron Paul claps back at anti-crypto congressman

Former U.S. Congressman and Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul joined Consensus 2019 in New York City today, where the libertarian discussed his belief that the federal government should keep its hands off cryptocurrency.

He dismissed a move by U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) to ban crypto purchases, calling the congressman, “just another thug in Washington," adding "people like him are driven by power." Sherman’s call for the ban came during a May 9 House Financial Services Committee meeting.
