JUST IN: 82-Year-Old Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy Hospitalized

Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy, 82, was hospitalized on Thursday evening after not feeling well.

Leahy will remain in the hospital overnight, according to the Vermont Senator’s office.

Reuters reported:

U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy, 82, was taken to a Washington area hospital “as a precaution” on Thursday after not feeling well at his home in Virginia, his office said.

The Democrat from Vermont was expected to undergo tests and “remain overnight for observation,” Leahy’s office said in a written statement.

No further details were released on the senator’s condition. The statement said his office would release updates as they became available.

Leahy was elected to the United States senate in 1974 and serves as the president pro tempore of the senate.

Recall, Leahy was taken to the hospital last year after presiding over the opening of the sham impeachment trial against Donald Trump.

Leahy presided over the sham impeachment trial since Chief Justice John Roberts opted out.

The corrupt Vermont senator last year announced he would not be seeking reelection in 2022 after holding the seat for 8 terms.

“It is time to pass the torch to the next Vermonter who will carry on this work for our great state. It’s time to come home,” Leahy said.

Good riddance.
