Senator Rand Paul is still promoting the Trump voter fraud claims that led to the insurrection of January 6th. Paul tried to stop Trump’s impeachment trial from going forward in the Senate yesterday, arguing that it was unconstitutional for the Senate to hold an impeachment trial of a former president. This argument doesn’t make sense for a number of reasons: For one, that would make an outgoing president immune from consequences in their final weeks in office. Also, any president facing impeachment and conviction could resign to avoid being banned from holding public office in the future. Despite hearing these arguments, only five Senate Republicans voted to move the trial forward.
Rand Paul went on Newsmax to deliver some of his nonsensical arguments in favor of the former president. Paul tried to make the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6th a “both sides” issue because three years ago one lone mentally ill Bernie Sanders supporter shot Congressman Steve Scalise. The analogy is so absurd that it isn’t even coherent. Paul used to be seen as a somewhat reasonable Republican since he’s supposed to be a libertarian and can agree with Democrats on some foreign policy matters. Now after seeing him push the narrative that the 2020 election was rigged, we have discovered tjay he’s almost as nutty and foolish as Donald Trump himself.
