And they say that women are emotional. During the president’s impeachment trial, one of the senators wanted to out the whistleblower whose information began the impeachment of Donald J. Trump. Why? To garner favor from the would-be autocrat.
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) handed Chief Justice John Roberts a card. These cards include the senator’s name and the question. It included the best-guessed name of that whistleblower, but the justice has never been anyone’s dunny. He said he refused to “read the question as submitted.”
The Kentucky senator tried again on Thursday. He insisted that his question be addressed right at the beginning of the second day of the ask-and-answer proceedings:
‘NEW: “The presiding officer declines to read the question as submitted,” Chief Justice John Roberts said after Sen. Rand Paul submitted a question.

Then, Paul tweeted about “Schiff staffers to plot impeaching the President:”
‘My question today is about whether or not individuals who were holdovers from the Obama National Security Council and Democrat partisans conspired with Schiff staffers to plot impeaching the President before there were formal House impeachment proceedings.”
Once again, Roberts said no.
Shortly after, Paul huffed off of the Senate floor and out of Congress. Then, he was seen tweeting.
