No truer words have ever been said!!
Rand Paul deserves applause all around for his passionate speech and the blistering slamdown he just gave to democrats.
I’m done talking.
Trending Politics bravely, truly, and honestly reported on the story:
On Tuesday afternoon, Senator Rand Paul blistered Senate Democrats in a speech that is now going viral on all forms of social media.
The Republican Senator from Kentucky slammed Democrats for their hypocrisy when it comes to inciting political violence. At one point in his speech, Paul pointed out the fact that President Trump told supporters to protest “peacefully and patriotically” while many Democrats have called for very specific acts of violence against conservatives with no repercussions.
“Democrats claim to want to unify the country, but impeaching a former president, a private citizen, is the antithesis of unity. This impeachment is nothing more than a partisan exercise designed to divide the country further,” he began.
“They have brazenly appointed an openly pro-impeachment Democrat to preside over the trial. This is not fair or impartial, and it hardly encourages any kind of unity for the country. If we are about to try to impeach a president, then where is the chief justice? If the accused is no longer president, then where is the constitutional power to impeach him? Private citizens don’t get impeached. Impeachment is for removal from office, and the accused here has already left office,” he continued.
The Daily Wire had more on the halting of the sham impeachment:
Forty-five Republican senators voted in favor of a motion introduced by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Tuesday to dismiss the impeachment article against former President Donald Trump as unconstitutional.
The point of order, which was defeated 55-45, argued that the Senate does not have the constitutional authority to try a president after he has left office.
The House on Monday delivered to the Senate one article of impeachment against Trump for allegedly “encourag[ing]…imminent lawless action at the Capitol” after a mob breached and vandalized the Capitol on Jan. 6 after his rally.
