Senator Rand Paul on Thursday afternoon at 1 PM ET will insist on his question which reveals the name of the whistleblower.
Chief Justice John Roberts blocked a question from Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) from being asked at the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump on Wednesday.
Senator Paul’s question had to do with the whistleblower’s contact and coordination with Adam Schiff’s office.
Roberts is refusing to mention Eric Ciaramella’s name and will not allow anyone to say the whistleblower’s name during the question-and-answer session.
Senator Paul was furious for being gagged by Justice Roberts and announced he will put up a fight on Thursday.
“Senator Paul believes it is crucial the American people get the full story on what started the Democrats’ push the impeach President Donald Trump…” Rand Paul’s office announced.
GOP Senators Mike Lee (UT), Ted Cruz (TX) and Josh Hawley (MO) asked a similar question about the whistleblower’s employment and his relationship with Schiff’s top aide Sean Misko, however they did not identify the CIA official.
Impeachment manager Adam Schiff has TWO aides, Sean Misko and Abigail Grace who worked with the whistleblower Eric Ciaramella at the National Security Council and Republican Senators asked about their role in plotting to remove Trump.
There is no law prohibiting the Senators from identifying the identity of the whistleblower, but Justice Roberts is covering for Schiff and blocking mention of Eric Ciaramella.
