Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said if the Republican leadership in the Senate goes along with impeaching President Donald Trump after he leaves office it will “destroy the party.”
With the corrupt media establishment overselling what took place at the U.S. Capitol to hang it like an albatross around the necks of GOP lawmakers, many are running scared and eager to distance the party from Trump, who’s being blamed for the violence, even though the FBI is suggesting the attack was planned well before the president addressed a rally that fateful day — Trump’s remarks being the premise of the House impeaching him a second time.
Appearing on Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Rand was asked by host Laura Ingraham about the possibility of the Senate holding a trial once Trump is out of office.
“They will destroy the Republican Party,” Paul said. “If leadership is complicit with an impeachment, or if leadership votes for impeachment, they will destroy the party. And like I said, I opposed President Trump when he was wrong and for him when he was right. We did a lot of good things throughout the Trump presidency and impeachment is purely a partisan thing.”
After denouncing the alleged moral indignation of those who acted against Trump, the senator doubled down on his assertion.
“I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week. I voted against over-turning the election,” Paul stated. “But at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion. If Republicans go along with it, it will destroy the party. A third of the Republicans will leave the party.”
“This isn’t about whether this was a right or wrong debate, this is not about anymore the electoral college,” he continued. “It’s about the future of the party and whether you are going to ostracize, excommunicate President Trump from the party — well, guess what, millions of his fans will leave as well.”
Ingraham chimed in to say, “American voters who supported President Trump will feel that they have been impeached and called a white supremacist too.”
The Democrat-controlled House charged Trump with “incitement of insurrection” after the Capitol was stormed on January 6, and ten Republican lawmakers, led by Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., joined with them to vote to impeach.
With Democrats and the corrupt media establishment working hard to dehumanize Republicans, linking everyone who voted for President Trump to the violent few who inexcusably did what they did to silence them as “seditionists,” those who don’t have the GOP’s best interests at heart say good riddance to a third of the party.
Other’s suggest that may be a conservative estimate.
Here’s a sampling of some of those responses to the story from Twitter that escaped censorship:

Unfortunately for them, they don’t realize we have already turns our backs on all of the turn-coats who refused to allow for 10 days of viewing all of the voting fraud evidence.
