Rand Paul Explodes at Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts

Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts blocked Sen. Rand Paul from posing a question during the Senate impeachment trial Wednesday that would have named the alleged whistleblower at the center of the case, reports Fox News.

RP is not happy.

Roll Call reporter Niels Lesniewski tweets that during a break in the trial on Wednesday, RP was fuming.

"I don't want to have to stand up to try and fight for recognition," Rand shouted, according to Lesniewski and added that Rand's complaint was "audible from the galleries above the chamber."

"If I have to fight for recognition, I will," he said.

Roberts, under the Constitution, presides over the impeachment trial.

This morning, Roberts rejected RP's question once more. After calling on RP, the first Republican senator to be recognized on Thursday, and reading his question to himself, Roberts said: "The presiding officer declines to read the question as submitted."
RP tweeted about the question:


  1. I wonder what the Deep State has on Roberts?

    1. Seriously. It's not like SCOTUS have to worry about reelection.
