Democrat senator and impeachment trial presiding officer Patrick Leahy rushed to hospital

The most senior Democrat senator, Patrick Leahy, was scheduled to preside over the impeachment trial of former President Trump in the Senate, a move that was attacked by Republican critics like Sen. Rand Paul.

Now, Leahy’s illegitimate presiding role is in doubt for another reason – his health.

According to multiple reports, Leahy complained of not feeling well, and was rushed to the hospital for further testing.

The Hill reports:

Leahy’s hospitalization came hours after he was sworn in to preside over the Senate’s impeachment trial. The proceedings are expected to begin the week of Feb. 8.

…Leahy will oversee Trump’s impeachment trial next month in lieu of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who chose not to preside over the trial because Trump is no longer in office.

It was not immediately clear if Leahy’s hospitalization would impact his ability to head the procecedings. Leahy’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill inquiring if the development will have any impact on the trial.

As Sen. Rand Paul pointed out earlier in the day, Leahy’s partisan position in the trial, instead of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, proves that impeachment is an illegitimate exercise. No private citizen should be tried in a trial presided over by your political enemies.

  1. President Trump is definitely the person to lead our Country! He makes sure the citizens are given everything they need.

        1. Ike accomplished next to nothing in office. Uttered a few good lines about the Military industrial complex and set the record for playing golf. Reagan did not have the deranged media and Congress that Trump had. Trump for three years than any 2 term president in the last 100 years.

  2. It is totally illegal The Constitution says that the Chief Justice is to preside over impeachment. Since Chief Justice Roberts has said he doesn’t want to touch it, it should be dismissed. Roberts knows this whole impeachment of a civilian is not legal.

    1. This Country was built by God and, those who seek to destroy it will quickly be smitten by the Lord. Hard lesson to handle when you are ignorant and Power Hungry. Stand by for more of this.

      1. VERY WELL SPOKEN, i DO BELIEVE SINCE I FEEL DONALD J TRUMP WAS GOD SENT TO SAVE AMERICA, HE WILL BE BEHIND HIM IN HIS TIME TO FINISH SAVING AMERICA.

    2. Never rule God out. No evil intended to anyone but let God be God. He is not through with America yet and revival is ahead before the faithful Bride Church is pulled and chaos follows with the man of perdition presented as a false christ/savior for 7 years of real tribulation. Satan has not pulled one over on God and He is and will set things right for defying His will and the will of the voters on the country He wants blessed. Time for clean up and separating false Christians from the real.

    1. A very example is at one of Clinto Trump debates, she brought up the idea that Trump was colladed with Russia, and next day Democrats jumped on the message and went with itfor years and $40,million dollars of nonsense
      They are know this is how they work. That the way they work it. blaim the Rebulicans on something they are doing themselves, and Obama is behind all this rubbish from going to a Terroristic Collegeage and learning the dirty tricks. Right now his is bvehind the second impeachment thing, that said today on one of the news item, obama is and was behind the capitol riot and this impeachments. Somebody needs to take Obama off the streets and put him in prison for all the dirt that is going on in our country at present/

      1. If all this extreme framing of President Trump, corruption beyond belief, fallacies and omissions to FISA all get swept away this country is history.
        Just pray we can get thru till Jan 2023 and we take both houses back think America can survive. Then biden will resign to harris and then she will be impeached and America can recover. Would love to see President Trump either run in 2024 and win or put his strength into bringing in strong and younger.

      2. Amen to that. We wouldn’t have all this BS crap if it wasn’t for Obama starting all this.all the Blacks and white people got along . BEFOR
        Obama got in office then Obama started this crap. They need lock him up throw away the key and put that ugly wife in jail with him

  3. Biden is not a leader. America last is a traitorous avenue. The executive orders are already a failure and Biden is angering his own base as well

  4. I couldn’t care less if Leahy had the big one and croaked. He’s a Democrat for one, and for two, the ol’ geezer’s been in office since 1975. 46 years in office is 40 years too many. If his dying gets him out of office, then Please Lord take him.

    1. DO not worry about the evil . I broke a rule I have lived under for years of not praying for harm to another person and just realized that the dems in charge are not a person but pure evil . I asked God to help the people by taking out the evil ones and He has started answering My prayer . Violence is not needed if We all pray to God , It works if You ask correctly .

  5. Karma works in a mysterious ways, those that do wrong will not reward good, Pelosi’s, Biden’s, Schumer’s time will come unfortunately in mysterious ways innocent pay for wrongdoings by parents, grandparents, aunts if they themselves aren’t paying wrongdoings to others

  6. Leahy (regardless of his health) is unfit to preside over anyone. In fact, if he (and Sanders) were from any state other than the “County” of Vermont, nobody would have ever heard of them. Vermont is smaller in population than a lot of counties in other states. Also, if you factored out the largest city in Vermont, Burlingame, I’m confident you would not have ever heard of either of these two political Titans within that state’s borders!!

  7. Hey censors, did a ruffle some feathers by telling the truth?? Apparently, you dont want people knowing the truth, right? Well, there are other ways.

  8. Thank you Senator Rand Paul….You said it all….The democrats are plain NUTS and they should be booted out. They are setting so many dangerous precedents that will destroy this country. I cannot believe that NOTHING is being done to stop them. The republicans have to fight fire with fire…They can’t keep playing Mr. Nice Guy to a bunch of lunatics. It’s not working….They will destroy this country if they are not STOPPED.

    1. Years ago, when my youngest daughter was studying history in school, she asked me what the difference was between a Democrat and a Republican. I explained that it was the rate in which they grew government and took away all our liberties. The Democrats always set the agenda, regardless of how looney it was or who was in power at that particular time, and the Republicans would chip around the edges and slow it down, but never fought to stop it! Essentially, the Democrats were evil power mad politicians, while the Republicans were the politically challenged, spineless politicians.

    2. Thank you Sen. Paul Ryan for standing up to ALL this Fruad
      Trial, AGAIN!! More of our Republican s Must TAKE a STAND!! These Democrats have all gone NUTS!! Beginning with Pelosi & Shimmery!!

  9. This comical impeachment farce has grown beyond the boundaries of ludicrous. Appointing “any” Democrat Domestic Terrorist to do this is like Hitler appointing Heinrich Himmler to preside over the fate of the Jewish people.

  10. This is a real reason we need to put in place the 65 and time to retire. Next we will have to see one of these old gezzers fall stone dead while making a speech. Term limits will keep the people who started out with george washington out of the office. Hint hint pelosi.

    1. pelosi needs to go.she is ready for a home for retired seniors she is a nut case.hatred for a president is not a devout catholic. lady you need to go to confession.

  11. amen to senator rand paul. his speech was the most honest speech i have heard lately.the republicans go after maxine waters she is nothing but a trouble maker she and . pelosi full of hatred for a president trump that was the greatest president we had since ronald reagan. these demorats need to be removed. there destroying our country. god bless you rand paul and god bless president trump. us 75 million people that voted for you president trump and senator rand paul we are behind you forever.god bless america its the greatest country in the world.

  12. sad the old senile prick and the rest of the pricks demorats and rhinos do not do america a great favor and drop dead
    I pray daily for HIM to send the AOD (angels of death) to visit them and their families and lead them in chains to HELL.
    They claim on 1.6.2021 GOP attacked the capital yet the FBI and security knew of this “acttack weeks before” and knew ANTIFA was involved.
    They were armed, really? the lady a US Vet died from a cops gunshot wound. Did any in this mob shoot guns, rifles, NOpe.
    But how about the ongoing riots in OR, WA, CA etc, Billions of $$ in losses, stores closed for good big stores Macy;s Nordstrom, Target re thinking about re opening in downtowns. Yet the media is ever silent even as the cities BURN.
    Sorry my grandpop used to say since the 1920’s th only good politician, judge (demora) is a dead one….why…that way they cannot steal from you no more….
    How right he was then and now.
    I do not advocate violence but perhaps a Peoples court such as France held in 1789 and removed 20,000 useless bastards from the face of the earth is needed.

  13. Trump did a lot because he knew how business works.
    For instance, all the other losers were taxing the corporations and had raised the Corporate tax rate to 40 %.
    When that happens, all the big business leaders begin to take their factories out of the country.
    Trump knew this and lowered the rate back down to 20% which was the average rate for the world.
    When Trump did this, the Business leaders began to bring their factories and place of business back inside our country.
    We were seeing a 3% increase in the economy every QUARTER !
    Obama was bragging about 3.5 % a year, while trump was doing more like 12% annually.
    We need to give Trump credit for knowing how business works.

  14. WAY TO GO GOD, take heed dems . What happens to the next bozo who pisses on the constitution. Maybe a good old down to earth lightening bolt , or maybe space junk hits them

  15. He is too old for the position. He is not in the best of health and it is possible he will not be able to perform
    his duties. Step Down and get healthy. Let the younger ones or an appointed younger person that is in good health. Being sick and weak not not speak well for brain power and dealing with complex situations and stress.

  16. WELL, WELL, WELL, AND ANOTHER ONE GOES DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOOKS LIKE YOUR NOT GOING TO GETT WHAT YOU WANT AGAIN NANCY P!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
