As Twitchy reported, during the end of the impeachment trial in the Senate, Chief Justice John Roberts declined to read Sen. Rand Paul’s question for the House impeachment managers and defense team because it contained the name of the whistleblower — whose name to this day Rep. Adam Schiff says he doesn’t know. Tom Nichols called Paul’s question “a malicious attempt to get someone killed.”
Paul isn’t giving up and once again named He Who Cannot Be Named on the Senate floor on Tuesday.
Rand Paul used the final deliberations of Trump's impeachment trial to name the alleged whistleblowerhttps://t.co/48tlFwCEN2

Former CIA director and current drama queen John Brennan says Paul is “beneath contempt” and “history will revile” any senator who excuses his actions.
Rand Paul is beneath contempt.
He typifies the worst of @realDonaldTrump’s craven enablers.
Any Senator excusing this dangerous behavior makes a mockery of public service.
History will revile all of you. https://t.co/3BLs2kmtti

No, @JohnBrennan, history will revile you. You will be exposed as the architect of this failed coup. You will be held accountable. Justice will be swift and merciless.

Look at this guy
His coup failed so he’s ranting at Rand Paul for calling out his operative Eric Ciaramella
Brennan knows it’s illegal for the Agency to run ops on US soil. Especially against innocent Americans.
That’s why he’s so nervous https://t.co/40c02CZFR2

Rand Paul is an American PATRIOT! Why not ask these questions? The American people not only have a RIGHT to know, we WANT to know the answers to his question(s).

It is disturbing to see a former CIA director so out of control — emotionally and rhetorically. Frankly it is unbelievable.

You were head of the CIA and you think there's anyone who doesn't know the "Whistleblower" is Eric Ciaramella? pic.twitter.com/9gvMXNfrA3

John Brennan is beneath contempt.
He typifies the worst of the Dem/Deep State subversives.
Any Senator excusing his seditious behavior makes a mockery of public service.
History will revile you/him.

You spied on Congress.
You spied on American citizens.
Rand Paul is not the problem.

You have the audacity to accuse @RandPaul of contempt? Rich coming from the king if treason himself.

So, that is the whistleblower??

Of course you hate the one Senator that advocates most for civil liberties.

Rand Paul represents the people.
Rand Paul wants sunlight on corruption.
He is a direct threat to you and your dark dealings.
Threats on twitter will never change the fact that sunlight is coming. It's coming. We the American people support sunlight. Darkness no more

John Durham is not long from subpoenaing you in his criminal investigation. You'd be wise to remain in silence and out of the limelight, not drawing attention to yourself.

You speak of contempt? Do you even grasp the depth of contempt for the swamp, those such as yourself who thought they were the law, that they knew better than the American people?

I'm told revealing the name of the alleged "whistleblower" is against the law.
If that was true, why hasn't Rand Paul been arrested?
Now it's just "beneath contempt?"
Could it be that this claim was a lie from the very beginning, and Rand Paul knows the law better than you do?
— Brandon Garrett (@BatDaddyOfThree) February 5, 2020
There is no order, law, or statute that guarantees anonymity to whistleblowers.
You would think that a former head of the CIA would know this fact. pic.twitter.com/8bOt0yXpCI

We don’t know how Rand Paul sleeps at night knowing John Brennan considers him beneath contempt.
Tom Nichols is very concerned that Rand Paul is actively trying 'to get someone killed' by repeating the name of the alleged whistleblower https://t.co/4r4OppyIPe
