Rand Paul Says Impeaching Trump Will Destroy the GOP

(TargetLiberty.org) – On January 13, the Democratic Party impeached President Donald Trump for a second time. The vote was mostly along party lines with just 10 GOP representatives voting in favor of the articles. Recently, there’s been chatter that members of the Republican caucus in the Senate might betray the president, and that possibility is making one senator speak out.

Republican Senator Rand Paul (KY) spoke to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on January 15 and sent a warning to the lawmakers on his side of the aisle. He said he believes GOP senators who side with Democrats “will destroy the party.” Paul mocked the impeachment process saying it’s a partisan act for people who believe they’re “moral” and “so much better” than someone else.

During the interview, Paul said he didn’t support everything that’s happened in the last few months, but that it isn’t reason enough to impeach the president.

It seems the Democratic Party is planning to put Trump through a trial, even after he’s become a private citizen. As a result, there has been some debate about whether or not the process is constitutional this time around. The question now is: will Republicans go along with the impeachment, or will they stand against it?
