Supreme Court Justice John Roberts is carrying water for the Democrats during the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, blocking questions from Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) that name CIA whistleblower Eric Ciaramella.
Roberts is helping the Democrats protect the identity of the Democrat operative who created the basis for impeachment with his complaint regarding President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, despite never having heard the call himself.
Roberts first blocked Paul’s attempt to expose Ciaramella on Wednesday. The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis called out Roberts for his “arbitrary and unilateral censorship of senators and Senate business.” Davis added that Roberts initially wanted to block even general questions surrounding the whistleblower, showing extreme bias from the robed lawyer who infamously saved Obamacare.
“I don’t want to have to stand up to try and fight for recognition,” Paul shouted after his question was rejected by Roberts, according to reporter Niels Lesniewski, who said that Paul’s objection was “audible from the galleries above the chamber.”
“If I have to fight for recognition, I will,” Paul said.
Paul continued his push to name Ciaramella on Wednesday, and Roberts rebuked him yet again. Federal law does not prevent Ciaramella from being named in the Senate, but Roberts remains dedicated to limiting the public’s understanding of the case.

Paul noted that his question didn’t even name Ciaramella as the whistleblower, but it just referenced his relationship with Adam Schiff staffer Shawn Misko. Roberts’ stubborn refusal to field Paul’s question has inadvertently demonstrated Ciaramella to be the whistleblower, which is an open secret.

Really weird thing about CJ Roberts' bizarre refusal to read @RandPaul's question about Eric Ciaramella's extremely close relationship with Schiff staffer Shawn Misko is that he never refers to him as "whistleblower." So so so weird.

There are now reports that Democrats are fuming over Paul’s agitation. Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut is looking for ways to punish Paul for bringing the issue of the CIA whistleblower’s identity to the Senate impeachment trial.

Sen. Paul has been one of the few GOP lawmakers with the courage to expose Ciaramella publicly. Ciaramella’s identity as the whistleblower has been widely known for weeks, even as the Democrats and establishment media sources desperately attempt to cover it up.
“I think Eric Ciaramella needs to be pulled in for testimony, and then I think it will be ultimately determined at that point,” Paul said to Washington, D.C.-based WMAL in Nov. 2018. “But I think he is a person of interest in the sense that he was at the Ukraine desk when Joe Biden was there when Hunter Biden was working for the Ukrainian oligarch. So simply for that alone, I think he’s a material witness who needs to be brought in.”
“I think the whistleblower needs to come in because he needs to be asked about, did he know about the conflict of interest?” Paul added. “He was there during the time of Joe Biden and Hunter Biden working for $50,000 a month for a Ukrainian oligarch, so he needs to be asked about that.”
Paul’s refusal to back down in the midst of overreach from the Chief Justice has exposed the Senate impeachment trial against President Trump as even more of a farce and a sham.
Louie Gohmert Blames Mask Usage for COVID-19 Diagnosis, Plans to Take Hydroxychloroquine to Treat Virus
The mask may have caused him to catch the Chinavirus.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, which the fake news media has attributed to his lack of using a face mask.
However, Gohmert says he tested positive for the disease after complying with mask mandates more than ever. He feels the mask usage did not protect him from getting the virus and may have even contributed to it.
He told reporters that it is “ironic” that he would catch COVID-19 now “because a lot of people have made a big deal out of my not wearing a mask a whole lot, but in the last week or two I have worn a mask more than I have in the whole last four months.”
“I can’t help but wonder if by keeping a mask on and keeping it in place, if I might have put some germs, some of the virus on the mask and breathed it in,” Gohmert said.
Democrats are chiding Gohmert because he has talked against lockdown policies, mask mandates, and more overreach implemented because of COVID-19 mass hysteria.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that she is “sorry for my members, who are concerned because he has been showing up at meetings without a mask and making a thing of it.”
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) added that he is “concerned about the irresponsible behavior of many of the Republicans who have chosen to consistently flout well-established public health guidance perhaps out of fealty to their boss, Donald Trump, who is the head of the anti-mask movement in America.”
Big League Politics has reported on how the mass hysteria has caused Americans to turn on their heritage of freedom and liberty to support forcible unconstitutional mandates:
A new poll from Morning Consult/Politico reveals that a solid majority of Americans support a mask mandate that would implement fines of jail time for those that refuse to wear masks in public places.
The asks registered voters if they’d support a mandated implemented by their state government. 72% of of responding registered voters stated that they’d “strongly” or “somewhat” support a state-implemented mask mandate that is punishable by jail time or fines.
The poll asked the following question.
“Based on what you know about the COVID-19 pandemic (coronavirus), would you support or oppose your state instituting a face mask mandate in public spaces, where not wearing a mask could be punishable by fine or jail time?”
Curiously, Baby Boomers, one of America’s most conservative voting demographics, support a mask mandate most strenuously. 78% of Boomers support the mask mandate. Millennials (68%) and Generation Z (63%) support it the least, although wide majorities still do.
Democrats support the mask mandate in almost unanimous fashion, with 86% of them supporting it. A solid majority of Republicans support mandatory masks as well, with a majority of 58%.
There simply is widespread public support for wearing a mask and taking limited measures to deter the spread of coronavirus in the United States. Republicans and conservatives risk alienating such popular sentiment at their own electoral peril.
Gohmert plans to take hydroxychloroquine in order to treat COVID-19 and fend off potential symptoms.
“My doctor and I are all in, and I got a text just before I came on from a dear friend, [a] doctor, who just found out he had it, and he said he started a HCQ [hydroxychloroquine] regimen, too,” Gohmert said while appearing on Fox News.
“I got a tiny little taste of what you and the president get every day,” Gohmert said to host Sean Hannity, “The left went nuts.”
Gohmert hopes to be among the 99.7 percent of coronavirus sufferers who recover from the disease.
