(Washington, DC) - Senator Rand Paul says Republicans will "destroy the party" if they support convicting President Trump during his Senate impeachment trial.
The Kentucky Republican spoke to Fox News Wednesday and called the impeachment "a hugely partisan exercise" from the Democrats, and said Republicans who go along with it will destroy the party because Trump brought a lot of people to it.
Trump was impeached by the House for a second time on January 13th, for inciting the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol building.
Convicting Trump in a Senate trial, even though he's already exited the White House, could disqualify him from any future run for office.
