Chief Justice John Roberts, who is overseeing President Trump's Senate impeachment trial, keeps rejecting questions from Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. His actions aren't going unnoticed.
Chief Justice John Roberts again refused to read Republican Sen. Rand Paul's question to the Senate. Roberts then immediately read verbatim a question from a Democrat senator.— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) January 30, 2020
Incredible cowardice, arrogance, and abuse of power by an unelected judge to hijack the U.S. Senate.
Can we add John Roberts to the witness list? I mean, he appointed the judges who authorized the unlawful warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. In fact, why isn’t he recused on that very basis? The IC IG worked for the agency that submitted all 4 applications to the court...— Julie Kelly (@julie_kelly2) January 30, 2020
Interesting question:— Doug Stafford (@dougstafford) January 30, 2020
How does John Roberts know the name of the whistleblower?
We don’t. And the question wasn’t about that.
John Roberts is rigging the impeachment trial. Withholding crucial evidence.— John Ocasio-Nolte (@NolteNC) January 30, 2020
Whole system is rigged and needs to be destroyed.
How can one of the jurors in the senate trial be denied the right to do his job?— Jim Marcello (@jimmarcello) January 30, 2020
The text of the question confirms this. So why was it censored? https://t.co/cUTRk7f3fv— Mollie (@MZHemingway) January 30, 2020
Really weird thing about CJ Roberts' bizarre refusal to read @RandPaul's question about Eric Ciaramella's extremely close relationship with Schiff staffer Shawn Misko is that he never refers to him as "whistleblower." So so so weird.— Mollie (@MZHemingway) January 30, 2020
Why was Rand Paul's question not asked? By what law or what justification was he silenced? This is extremely scary to witness and answers are needed.— Mollie (@MZHemingway) January 30, 2020
Meanwhile, the left is calling for Senator Paul to be arrested.
