U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is slamming Democrat’s push to impeach former President Trump a second time. Paul has previously stated that without Supreme Court Justice John Roberts presiding over the impeachment that is not legitimate in his eyes anyway.
Paul also believes that the unity Democrats claim to seek will not be found by demonizing Donald Trump considering his immense popularity that he continues to enjoy.
“Democrats claim to want to unify the country, but trying a former president, a private citizen, on impeachment charges is the antithesis of unity.”

“In a few minutes, I will insist on a vote to affirm that this proceeding we are about to enter is unconstitutional. That impeachment of a private citizen is illegal, and essentially a bill of attainder, and that no sense of fairness or due process would allow the judge in a proceeding to be a partisan Democrat already in favor of the impeachment. A sham, this is.”

Time will tell how far this goes. Meanwhile, former President Trump is already making his next moves, despite bans by social media, by creating the “office of the former president”. This is speculated by some to be a mockery of President Biden’s previous “office of the president-elect”, but it also appears Donald Trump will use this to put out messages and push for his political aspirations nonetheless.
Breaking 911 also posted another clip of Paul, captioning it with:
“RAND PAUL: “Unity is the opposite of this travesty we are about to witness … It’s almost as if they have no ability to exist except in opposition to Donald Trump.”

It’s tough to say what radical bills Joe Biden will get through congress while president, as there is gridlock in the Senate despite Vice President Kamala Harris being a potential tiebreaking vote on some things. At least two U.S. Senate Democrats have signaled they may push back on radical left-wing bills that don’t have bipartisanship as well.
