This could be a nightmare if true.
Republican Sen. Rand Paul doesn’t think that this sham impeachment push is to punish Trump for withholding aid from the Ukraine, he believes it’s to alter the results of the 2020 elections.
According to the Washington Examiner, “Do you think [Democratic impeachment manager] Adam Schiff is just doing this because he’s such a stand-up citizen? Or do you think he cares about damaging people of the opposite political party?” Paul said.
“Right now, Trump is the presumptive nominee. The thing is, if convicted, he wouldn’t be allowed to run. This isn’t about the 2016 election. It’s not about potential malfeasance in office. It’s about taking him off the ballot and there being chaos on the other side,” Paul stated.
“He’s going to be removed from the ballot. Can you imagine the chaos? If he’s kicked out of the presidency, he’s removed from the ballot. We would have had most of our primaries by the time this happens,” the senator added.
“If you get through March before this happens, if we do an investigation, and then all of a sudden, they remove him, and he can’t be on the ballot, [Democrats] have completely destroyed the 2020 election for the other party. Which is the ultimate irony of this whole thing. They’re using the government, they’re using the government to go after political enemies,” Paul said.
