Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) took to the Senate floor to read the question Supreme Court Justice John Roberts refused to recite during the impeachment trial.

On Tuesday, he stated that the Constitution protects debate and said he thinks the chief justice made a big mistake by not allowing his question about the whistleblower.

The Kentucky Republican also pointed out the law does not preserve the anonymity of whistleblower’s. Sen. Paul specifically named the suspected whistleblower while delivering question.

Sen. Paul said he does not support jailing or firing the whistleblower, however, he continued to point out that lawmaker as well as the American people should know if they and others had biases going into impeachment proceedings.
