Chris Wallace Confronts Rand Paul Over Opposition to Trump Senate Trial: ‘That’s Not Quite True’

‘The other side argues that under that standard, a president could abuse his power, quit at the last minute’

RUSH EXCEPRT:

WALLACE: “Senator Paul, that’s not quite true. If I may, in 1876, the then secretary of war, William bellnap, serving under Ulysses grant was about to be impeached for accepting bribes. He raced to the White House to resign. They impeached him anyway. They did try him. A majority of sought to remove him, to convict him, they didn’t get the two-thirds. Isn’t that the case a solid precedent.”
