Speaking on the Senate floor on January 26, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) decried the upcoming impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, calling it a "sham" and a "kangaroo court."
He said such a trial would be at odds with the impeachment criteria set forth in the U.S. Constitution.
Further, Sen. Paul argued that Democrats, who have accused President Trump of inciting an attack on the Capitol building, are much more culpable than Mr. Trump for using inflammatory language. He cited specific remarks made by Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.), Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), and former Sen. (now Vice President) Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).
Sen. Paul spoke after raising a "point of order" about the planned impeachment trial.
