Justice Roberts Blocks Sen. Paul From Naming Whistleblower


Justice Roberts blocked Kentucky GOP Rep. Rand Paul from naming the whistleblower, source says but Sen. Paul may force the issue.

“If I have to fight for recognition, I will,” Paul said.

Fox News:

Chief Justice Roberts blocked Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul from posing a question during the Senate impeachment trial that would have named the alleged whistleblower at the center of the episode, Fox News is told — and Paul may try to force the issue during the question-and-answer session that begins Thursday afternoon.

Roberts, for now, has ball control because he actually receives the questions in note cards from senators, then reads the question aloud in the Senate chamber to be answered by either House Democratic managers or Trump’s defense team. But, Fox News has learned Roberts may soon lose his grip on the proceedings amid a torrent of criticism both inside and outside the Senate.

The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis condemned what he called Roberts’ “arbitrary and unilateral censorship of senators and Senate business,” and reported that Roberts had initially sought to block even general questions of the intelligence community whistleblower.

We’re not allowed to know who the so-called whistleblower is because it will expose Adam Schiff for the liar we all know he is.

Paul should absolutely force the issue.
