Chief Justice Roberts rejects Rand Paul's question

U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts on Thursday rejected a question by Senator Rand Paul during President Trump's impeachment trial with the Republican lawmaker afterwards saying it was an "incorrect finding" to not allow the question.

"I think this is an important question, one that deserves to be asked," Sen.

Paul said at a news conference.

"It makes no reference to anybody who may or may not be a whistleblower... I think it was an incorrect finding to not allow a question to make no reference.

It means that anybody that anybody ever said might have been a whistleblower could never be discussed in a proceeding." President Donald Trump's impeachment trial resumed on Thursday for a second day of questioning by U.S. senators before they address the explosive issue of whether to call witnesses such as former national security adviser John Bolton.

Without witnesses, Republicans, who control the Senate, say the trial could end as early as Friday with Trump's acquittal, which would leave him in office and allow him to claim vindication just as the Democratic Party holds its first nominating contest for the Nov.
