Rand Paul set the Senate in a tailspin when he suggested Chuck Schumer should be impeached.
But he isn’t done calling out the Left’s hypocrisy on Donald Trump’s impeachment trial yet.
And now, Paul is calling for yet another Democrat to face impeachment, and you won’t believe why.
When Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky suggested that Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer should face impeachment proceedings for the same actions he is accusing former President Donald Trump of being guilty of, the Senate went into an uproar.
Never before had someone so easily pointed out the hypocrisy of many in the Democratic Party, who are eager to use the second Trump impeachment trial as an opportunity to score political points against a man who no longer even holds elected office.
But Paul’s argument, that Chuck Schumer had committed the exact same sort of offenses he is currently accusing Trump of, doesn’t just apply to the New York Democrat.
Rather, there is a host of Congressional Democrats in both the House and Senate who have a long history of making inflammatory statements directed at President Trump, his supporters, or even just Republicans and conservatives in general.
And now, Senator Paul is demanding this prominent, yet gaffe-prone Democrat, should be facing the exact same sort of impeachment proceedings that she voted to bring down on President Trump.
“I think you’re going to see the Trump defense play video of Maxine Waters telling crowds to mob Trump administration and restaurants and attack them. They’ll probably show clips of Cory Booker saying, get up in their face of these Congresspeople,” Senator Paul told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday when asked about his position on the impending second Trump impeachment trial.
“So if people want to hold President Trump accountable for language, there has to be a consistent standard, and to my mind, it’s a partisan farce because they’re not doing anything to Chuck Schumer, not doing anything to Rep. Omar, not doing anything to Maxine Waters. It’s just not fair. It’s just partisan politics under a different name,” Paul added, calling out the California Democrat for being guilty of the very actions she is currently accusing Trump of.
In June 2018, Waters sparked a firestorm after she was recorded on video telling a crowd of supporters to confront Trump administration officials in public.
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out, and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters said.
The comments, once going viral, sparked a strong backlash from Republicans, while mostly being ignored in the mainstream media.
Paul’s suggestion that Waters face a congressional inquiry or possibly even impeachment proceedings for her comments helps to detail the Democrat’s argument in the impending impeachment trial that the President should be held responsible for allegedly “inciting a riot” at the Capitol.
What’s more, it illustrates just how many times over the past four years that prominent Democrats have repeatedly called for their supporters to “confront” and “push back” against the former President, his staff, and his supporters.
The second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump is set to conclude later this month, with all indications being that the Senate will vote to acquit the President of the charges House Democrats and a handful of House Republicans brought against him last month in the waning days of his term in office.
