Watch: What The Dick Cheney/Rand Paul Feud Tells Us About the GOP

Tue Jun. 24, 2014 2:54 PM EDT

Mother Jones Washington bureau chief David Corn dropped by MSNBC's Hardball to talk with Chris Matthews and the Huffington Post's Howard Fineman. The topic: the ongoing civil war within the GOP—and between Rand Paul and Dick Cheney—over the crisis in Iraq. It's hardly the first time the two have been at odds: Paul accused Cheney of exploiting Iraq for Halliburton's gain, and called him out on torture; Cheney fired back, saying Paul was "not familiar" with the facts.
