Republican Senator Rand Paul has announced his prediction for the outcome of former President Trump’s upcoming impeachment trial.
The Democrats have ‘zero chance’ of convicting Trump.
Paul went on to slam the hearings as a ‘partisan farce’ whose own assumed standard of guilt would actually end up ensnaring many top Democrats if it were actually applied fairly.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Fox News Sunday that there is “zero” chance that former President Donald Trump will be convicted in his upcoming Senate impeachment trial, and that the Democrats are playing host to a “partisan farce” that relies on a standard of guilt that would ensnare many of their top members.
Paul told Fox News that, under the standard at issue, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) would be guilty of inciting violence for comments he made outside of the Supreme Court during a rally targeting Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh over a Louisiana abortion case.
“If we’re going to criminalize speech, and somehow impeach everybody who says, ‘Go fight to hear your voices heard,’ I mean really we ought to impeach Chuck Schumer then,” Paul said. “He went to the Supreme Court, stood in front of the Supreme Court, and said specifically, ‘Hey Gorsuch, Hey Kavanaugh, you’ve unleashed a whirlwind. And you’re going to pay the price.’”
“This inflammatory wording, this violent rhetoric of Chuck Schumer was so bad that the chief justice, who rarely says anything publicly, immediately said this kind of language is dangerous as a mob tried to invade the Supreme Court,” he continued.
