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.
