John Roberts is breaking Senate protocol by refusing to read a senator’s question for fear that it will identify the whistleblower behind the impeachment debacle:
Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) attempt to ask about the whistleblower whose report helped spark the impeachment inquiry is running into a roadblock in the form of Chief Justice John Roberts.
A source confirmed that Roberts has indicated he would not read a question from Paul regarding the whistleblower at the center of the House impeachment inquiry.
The question from Paul is expected to name the individual. Because Roberts is responsible for reading the questions that would put him in the position of publicly outing the person on the Senate floor.
Paul indicated to reporters after a closed-door Republican dinner that he was not backing down from trying to ask his question.
The sad thing is that Roberts appears to be such a Boy Scout that no one would probably even care about whatever it is they have on him that they are using for control. Then again, appearances can be deceiving, and perhaps he is a full-blown Promethean infantivore.
