Sen. Rand Paul left the chamber after Chief Justice John Roberts declined to read his question.

The name of the guy Rand Paul would like to believe is the whistleblower is now all over the web, so he’s achieved his goal — and it’s not as though Rand Paul needed to worry about his reputation; this is the kind of petty self-aggrandizing bullshit that’s his trademark. I don’t even think that Rand is explicitly paid by Putin, or blackmailed by the GRU. He just likes being the center of attention, and the only way he’s capable of achieving that is by being a dick.
I’d like to believe that Chief Justice Roberts would care enough about his own not inconsiderable self-esteem to bring the full force of his powers down on Paul, but I’d also like to believe that my favorite potato chips are health food, and that ain’t happening either.
Q: "With all due respect, shouldn't you be in impeachment hearing right now?"

Rand Paul tried to pull a petty stunt this morning to out the whistleblower. He got embarrassed by John Roberts then, and he's getting embarrassed by Adam Schiff now.
And he deserves every second it.pic.twitter.com/uCsvNlBW5m

Six years ago, Rand Paul received an award from a whistleblower advocacy organization. Today, he publicly revealed the name of the alleged whistleblower. https://t.co/NHnxMhaQeZ

Remember when Senator John McCain told Rand Paul that he was working for Vladimir Putin? I do.pic.twitter.com/CxHMA7sk4K
