Rand Paul Calls for Impeaching Chuck Schumer
As the Democrats prepare for their second impeachment trial (which may potentially be unconstitutional), Senator Rand Paul has a better idea: impeach Chuck Schumer.
Paul appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace to slam the “partisan farce,” and reiterated that there is a *zero* percent chance the conviction Democrats are seeking to prohibit Trump from running for office again.
Democrats are pushing for a conviction with the allegation that Trump incited last month’s Capitol attack. Many Democrats are arguing this while simultaneously contradicting themselves and arguing that the riot was planned in advance on social networks like Parler. If it was planned in advance then Trump couldn’t have possibly incited it – and there’s more evidence that most planning was done on Facebook, not Parler, according to Department of Justice documents.
Reality is irrelevant here however, and the events of January 6 have been used a trojan horse for big tech to further censor conservatives, and for Democrats to give impeachment another shot.
Rand argued that by the same logic used to impeach Trump, Schumer himself could be impeached for comments made during the Brett Kavanaugh nomination saga. “I think if we’re going to criminalize speech, and somehow impeach everybody who says, ‘Oh, go fight to hear your voices heard,’ I mean, we really ought to impeach Chuck Schumer then. [Schumer] 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,” Paul continued.
The Senate trial kicks off this week, and while there’s the aforementioned “zero chance” of a conviction, the media that called for Trump’s impeachment even before he took office will finally get to cover their favorite topic once again.
