Chief Justice Roberts Blocks This Crucial Question From Sen. Rand Paul On “Origins Of House Impeachment”

(Tea Party PAC) – Chief Justice John Roberts reportedly blocked an incredibly important question Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) from being asked during the Senate’s impeachment trial on Wednesday.

This question could, of course, blow the entire farse wide open.

The question and answer session currently underway in the Senate involves Senators submitting written questions to Roberts, who is, as per the Constitution, overseeing the Senate trial.

Roberts then reads the questions posed to the Democrat House impeachment managers and members of President Trump’s legal team aloud. They alternate between Republican and Democrat senators.

Paul could be heard arguing for his question to be read aloud on the Senate floor.

Paul’s question reportedly had to do with interactions of named persons with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and members of his Congressional staff, who had contact with the “whistleblower” before their complaint was filed with the intelligence community inspector general.

Here are some of the reports:

“Per source: Rand Paul is not being allowed to ask his question about the origins of the House impeachment. Unclear what the exact question is and what the issue is with it”

“Sen. Rand Paul has been informed he won’t be allowed to ask his trial question related to the origins of the investigation, per source. Unclear exactly why at this point”

“A senior GOP senate aide tells me that Justice Roberts is screening questions and that’s why Rand Paul’s question — which contained names of people and questions about their interactions with Schiff and his staff — was disallowed. Odd bc Lee’s question was basically same.”

“Per senior Senate GOP staffer, Roberts is “screening the questions” and “the question contains names of people who worked with Schiff and Schiff staff to start this whole mess in the House.”

Roll Call reported on the overheard argument on the Senate floor.

“During a break in the trial, Sen. Rand Paul could be seen on the Senate floor seeking assurances that he will not be blocked from asking a question. The Kentucky Republican appeared less than pleased with Secretary of the Majority Laura Dove. “I don’t want to have to stand up to try and fight for recognition,” Paul said loudly enough to be overheard from the gallery above. “If I have to fight for recognition, I will.“

Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT), Josh Hawley (R-MO), and Ted Cruz (R-TX) asked the president’s counsel if the White House whistleblower worked at the National Security Council.

Republican Sens. Mike Lee of Utah, Josh Hawley of Missouri and Ted Cruz of Texas asked the president’s counsel if the White House whistleblower worked at the National Security Council and if the whistleblower coordinated with Schiff’s staff. Trump’s attorney Patrick Philbin couldn’t answer whether the whistleblower coordinated with Schiff’s staff but said learning more about the whistleblower would be “relevant.”
